The Cool-Girl Way to Wear a Slip Dress This Fall

Our fall 2016 trend report is proof that Who What Wear editors love burning the midnight oil to deliver a guide to everything you’ll be seeing, shopping, and wearing this season. Curated shortcuts to the season’s top trends are a specialty of ours, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a backseat and let someone else guide the way.

Case in point: one of our favorite trendsetters, Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty, who is showing us how to transition a feminine slip dress into a cool downtown-feeling ensemble that’s fall-ready. The key? “It's all about how you layer and play with textures,” says Suarez. “The slip dress, something so sexy and luxurious, paired with more boyish [pieces] is immediately toughened up.”

Hover over the plus signs to reveal the Saks Fifth Avenue pieces that helped Nat nail her look.

"The Chloé shoulder bag has an earthy element with its beautiful, bohemian suede patchwork. It totally flows with my warm, fall color palette. Plus, it's a timeless, transitional piece I can wear year-round."
“This is not like any other parka jacket . The fit is slouchy but slim-fitting. It also has tiny details on it that I love, like all the ties that dangle from the sleeves and sides. You can throw it over anything and it'll immediately make your look feel more put-together and chic.”
“I love the straps and neckline so much. It's perfect for layering. During the day, I'll throw a white T-shirt underneath. And for night, I'll just keep it bare around my neckline and throw on a jacket.”
“These are boots you put on and just feel so good in, like you can conquer the world. It's funny what a pair of boots can do to you! I love the patent leather and slim fit. So sleek and grungy.”
