#5. Pop a t-shirt on top. Turn your slip dress into a skirt by adding an extra layer. Knot the bottom of a printed tee to give you more shape and complete your look with sandals or sneakers.

#6. Tie sleeves around your waist. If you feel like your silk slip is too fancy for daytime, then tie a patterned shirt around your waist to break up the high-shine texture of satin.
