"Slip" Into Something More Comfortable — And Sexy!

When it comes to summer fashion, rising temperatures bring lighter colors, sheerer fabrics, and a growing desire to wear less. But the downside to stripping down is that, well, you might just end up baring it all, if you know what we mean. An amazing-yet-underrated solution to this age-old problem? The slip! Forget your old-fashioned notions, because these underpinnings are the one item in your wardrobe that you didn’t even know you needed.
A multitasking miracle, slips are the solution to all your summer problems. Too sheer summer whites, skirts that stick to sweaty butts, and apartments severely lacking on the AC front don’t stand a chance against slips. Channel a retro vibe in creamy colors and lace details or go full on sexy in a silky number. A linen slip adds extra coverage without any weight, but if you really want to make sure everything is where it’s supposed to be, try a stretchy, slimming version. Embellishments are too pretty to keep hidden, so don’t! Add a shorter tunic on top to let the slip peek out or go for the best heat-beating solution of all and wear it alone. It might just be the next best thing to being naked.
