The Best Transitional Slip Dresses For Autumn 2018

Autumn called and the slip dress answered

You may have thought autumn was time to retire your slip dress along with the other summer items in your wardrobe. But this is just the beginning.

Slip dresses are versatile and we don’t just mean from day to night, they can be worn every season – all you need to do is layer up or down.

Try pairing yours with a tshirt or a polo neck as the weather gets colder. How about toughening up the silky look with tights and a pair of leather biker boots? Speaking of leather, jackets also look great over the lighter fabric. 

If you’re looking for the right autumnal slip dress, we’ve selected some of our favourites from the high street. We bet you’ll be wearing this all year round.

    Olive green seems to be the colour for this autumn, especially if you're not particularly interested in the neon trend. Keep mossy with some knee high mock croc brown boots or culottes for a work wear look.

    What can go wrong with a timeless low v-neck maxi slip dress with thick straps? The answer is nothing. Layer your jumper under or over said dress depending on how jazzy you feel.

    Gingham is arguably worn during the warmer seasons but we can't help but slip it into our autumn months. Keep it simple with a black top underneath or a slouchy jumper over. 

    Glamorous Curve Check Slip Dress, sizes 12-26, £29.95, Simply Be
  • The Cami Slip

    The camisole dress can sometimes be intimidating as underwear as outerwear is usually not up everyone's street. When paired with a simple T-shirt though, the whole outfit becomes much more approachable.

    Camisole Dress, £69.99, sizes XS-XL, Zara.
  • Camel Creation

    Topshop
    An easy transition to one of this autumn's hottest colours: camel. Pair with a black roll neck, tights and boots as the night's draw in.
