I Wear This Once Dressy Dress to Work Almost Every Single Day

It’s very easy to get stuck in a routine when it comes to getting dressed, splitting your wardrobe between items you deem office-appropriate and those that are relegated to after-hours or weekend-only status.  

Though with an ever-increasing consciousness around clothing waste and cost per wear, I’ve become more determined to transition my favourite pieces across the entire spectrum of my wardrobe, re-wearing items as often as I can and living by the phrase, “It’s chic to repeat.” 

One wardrobe staple I’m finding particularly versatile this winter is the slip dress. Once considered a dressy item reserved for warm-weather occasions like summer weddings or holidays in the Amalfi coast, in recent times, I've found myself wearing a slip dress to work almost every day. Easily layered underneath blazers, roll-necks and cashmere jumpers, slip dresses have become the simple base layer I rely on for seamless weekday mornings. 

And on really cold days, when I know my bare legs will freeze but I don’t want to wear tights, I layer a tight midi-length knit dress under my slip dress to keep the lower half of my body warm before adding a T-shirt, jumper and coat on top. It’s a total game-changer, believe me.

Basically, what I’m saying is don’t underestimate the versatility of a slip dress. The same bronze one that I wore to my best friend’s engagement in the summer with a pair of strappy pumps is now also the dress that I wear to morning meetings alongside a roll-neck, beige jumper and boots. It’s all in the styling.
