How to Wear a Slip Dress (Summer Wardrobe Essential)

I'd been on the hunt for the perfect slip dress for a while—preferably one that didn't cost me three digits and wasn't overly lingerie-like—and this AE one fit the bill. It's a little big on me (I had to size up so it wouldn't fit like a top), but nothing my go-to seamstress can't fix for me (her, grandma!). To style it, I love the idea of juxtaposing edgier, boy-ish pieces like this oversize denim jacket and Western-inspired accessories with the pretty, feminine silhouette. Next, I plan on dressing it up for a nighttime appropriate look!
