Sweater dresses may be a winter wardrobe staple, but with summer on the horizon, slip dresses will be your new MVP.
While skater dresses or linen frocks are still summer favourites, nothing feels quite as effortless as the tried-and-true slip dress. Firstly, it's easy to wear — you literally slip it on. Secondly, due to its classic simplicity, slip dresses will go with nearly everything in your closet. Pair it with heels and a blazer for a night out or if you're heading to a summer wedding, or with sneakers and a jean jacket while running errands.
If you're looking for a chic yet affordable slip dress, we've found one you might want to check out. Nordstrom shoppers call the ASTR The Label Cowl Slip Midi Dress ($99 CAD - shop here/$89 USD - shop here) "silky smooth and super flattering."
This slinky slip dress is made from satin-like material that's soft to the touch. It has a cowl neckline, adjustable slingback straps and a side slit on the left leg.
Available in sizes XS-XL, this dress comes in black, blush and sage — and in the U.S., shoppers can also pick it up in purple.
What shoppers are saying
This elegant dress comes highly recommended by Nordstrom shoppers, who love how "flattering and effortless" it is.
"I was looking for a dress to wear to a friend's wedding and this is perfect! It fits great, is easy to slip on, and is a very flattering silhouette," raves one shopper. "Overall a great buy and great value for the price."
"This dress is slimming on me and very flowy. Got lots of compliments! I love that it's also versatile," adds another. "I plan to wear it with a leather jacket or a sweater for nights out."
"This is the most flattering and effortless dress I own!" writes another reviewer. "It makes me feel so pretty and regal, and it's definitely a staple piece for summer."
However, some shoppers warn that the blush version can be a bit see-through.
"I ordered the blush colour. It's true to size and I love how it feels on me. But you can see underneath it, so you might want to wear pasties or a nude bra," warns one reviewer.
"It's a cute and versatile dress, but because there's only one layer of fabric it can be a bit sheer," adds another. "I don't think this would be a problem with the black version though."
"Lovely cocktail dress and hugs my body in all the right places! The only caveat is that I have to watch what I wear underneath it because it's slightly see-though."
Nordstrom's Cowl Slip Midi Dress will be a chic addition to your warm-weather wardrobe! With summer on the way, this trending item won't last long. The light and flowy fabric yields a flattering fit, but you may want to wear light-coloured undergarments with this midi, as some shoppers say it's a bit sheer.
