Leave it to 2016 to transform the slip dress into, well, something other than a slip dress. Many of us have considered wearing a slip dress for a night out, but we always doubted it, right? Designers this year have completely revolutionized the classic slip dress and we are oh so excited about it! Recently we’ve seen more of this trendy look on the runway, on celebrities, and in stores and not just as a slip to wear under a dress or to bed. Below, see the best ways the slip dress can be worn along with some bling to go with it.

The slip dress we saw at the runways of DKNY, were anything, but typical.  This dress became reinvented with intricate cuts creating geometric designs and a few inches added to the hemline for extra drama.   The edginess of this slip dress requires classic accessories to create a perfect balance.  Go with a pair of classic diamond stud earrings and a diamond pendant, such as the ones pictured above from Diamondstuds.com.

Another reinvention of the slip dress, Alexander Wang nailed it with his choice of fabric.  Straying away from silk and switching it up to leather, this outfit is perfect for a rockstar kind of night.  Adding a pop of color to this all black look is the direction we’re going in.  These blue diamond studs are the perfect shade to still stay punk rock.  The black halo diamond pendant adds subtle bling without taking away from the drama of the dress.

Okay, we’re completely gushing over this slip dress. Although this dress is from his Fall/Winter collection we believe it could easily be worn in spring. When we think of a spring dress, we think less sultry and more girly (florals, bright colors, etc.) However, from the color to the cut, Narcisso managed to make a dress perfect for spring while still keeping it sexy.  This look is perfect for day or night.  Stay in trend with rose gold accents like these diamond halo rose gold stud earrings and princess cut diamond pendant.

This look combines two trends into one.  The slip dress meets spring’s most romantic trend: ruffles.  Both trends are toned down to fit harmoniously on one piece.  The ashy color of this dress also makes this look completely contemporary.  Pair this with dangle diamond earrings to compliment its length and a classic solitaire ring for effortless chic.

Last but not least, we’ve come to the patterned slip dress.  Checkered patterns are a classic and an all time favorite! We love it even more thanks to the combination of both, the slip dress and checkers, which make this look completely modernized.   Hitting just below the knees, the added length breathes fresh life into this look.  Black diamonds are all that are missing for this outfit to be complete.  This black diamond solitaire ring and dancing stone necklace make for the perfect final touches to this revolutionized dress!
