Fashion: 3 ways to style your silk slip dress


When it comes to investing in wardrobe essentials, the key is ensuring you can (and will) wear your new addition multiple ways. From day to night and weekdays to weekends, a good staple will serve you all year long. A good investment piece will not only last the distance but will cater to your moody approach to style. Grungy and fierce one day, romantic the next (much like the LOVE TWAIN girl really). The right essential will cater to every version of your style because after all, the price tag needs to be justified.

If your approach to style is Kate Moss circa 1990s one day and Leandra Medine the next, then your wardrobe is screaming out for a black silk slip dress. Think sexy and powerful one day, and street style maven the next. While simple in theory, the right slip will take more than staling your grandma’s undergarments. Oh no, no. A basic slip that is anything but requires luxurious materials and impeccable tailoring that hugs in all the right places. In sourcing a staple that was just that we looked no further than L.A. based label, TyLynn Nguyen. Cut from from 100% Italian silk and made in the city of cool, well how could we not really.

Here we take you through three different ways to wear your silk slip dress – because life is all about multi-tasking those wardrobe staples…


For the corporate chick…because the TWAIN girl won’t let an office job stop her from making a statement. 

Thank Leandra Medine, thank YSL or simply thank your lucky stars ladies. When it comes to office attire, the slip dress has made it’s way from the bedroom to the boardroom. Those classic shirt and structured pant combos are boring, not just for you but your office pals too! It’s time to elevate that office look and show who is boss by rocking your trendsetting style with a sense of commitment and confidence. 

Style your slip dress over your white button up shirt and pair your favourite brogues or loafers for office wear with attitude. It’s a necessity really, because who wants to socialise and go to those after work knock off drinks in boring attire.

For the casual chick…Because we know the TWAIN girl does casual with a twist 

Whilst we love a good jeans and tee combo here at TWAIN HQ – that too can become a little mundane. Change up that weekend look with a silk slip and white tee combo. If you are feeling a little SOHO vibes coming on, act a cool chick and wear your white tee under your slip. Not in the mood to explain your trendsetting attire to your grandma during sunday brunch? Wear your tee over your slip for a romantic yet casual take on your sunday best. Finish your look with your All Stars or Nike Roshes for comfort that doesn’t compromise on style.

For the party chick…Because the TWAIN girl is a social butterfly  

When it comes to part attire, making a comeback, making a statement or making someone jealous (not even ashamed to admit it, girls we know we have all been there) nothing makes you feel sexier and more confident than an all black ensemble and a sexy LBD.

Style your luxurious black silk slip with your lace bralette. Don’t forget a statement necklace (we’re obsessing over Nylons star choker) and your favourite heels. Perfect for date night – whether than be with your man or gal pals – either way, don’t just wear it – own it!
