Edgy Monochrome

Slip skirts are a must-have, the perfect addition to an everyday look with an edge, or power dressing. Wear your slip skirt with cute hoop earrings, slides, a cropped tee, and a cute leather jacket to add chic style.

Look for an animal print slip skirt like the ASOS DESIGN satin bias midi skirt if you want to make a statement. There is no doubt that this number will turn heads but it’s also the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Featuring a high waisted silhouette, an elasticated waist and super silky fabrication. Plus, it’s edgy, trendy and a breeze to style.

You’ll love the Fiorucci Vintage Angels Cropped T-shirt in this look. Featuring an iconic angels graphic and Fiorucci logo on the front, it’s made from 100% organic cotton and has a cropped slim fit. It’s hard to resist a cute, printed T-shirt and this is just that!

Take your footwear up a notch with fresh slides like the Alias Mae’s ‘Bree’. Fashion-forward individuals will enjoy wearing these flatforms, which are 5 cm in height, multi-layered and super comfortable.

The best way to emulate this Lara Croft inspired style is to start with a black skirt that is timeless and flattering. Take this sleek midi skirt by French Connection, an elasticated waistline, midi length, and a beautiful satin fabric make it effortless to dress up or down.

Adding a slip skirt to a cute top, bustier, or corset is a great way to make a fashion statement. The high-waisted Vince skirt is a perfect choice for this look. This skirt is superbly gorgeous because of its champagne white colour and metallic sheen which pairs beautifully with pastel hues and has a subtle pleated design.

This particular slip skirt will look great paired with a bustier top, corset, or whatever else you fancy. We love the Dazie Bring it Back silky top, with its corset-inspired structure and boning style detail that makes it extremely flattering.

You can’t go wrong with Dazie Rozalia heels if you love a magnificent ankle strap, crystal embellishments, and a stiletto heel that is to die for. Besides, these heels are sexy, gorgeous and the perfect accompaniment for a date with that special someone.

For a statement, pair with stunning earrings such as the Swarovski Matrix Hoop Earrings. This dazzling earring set drips with sparkling crystals on a rhodium-plated metal base. They are classic, extra and incredibly stunning to elevate any look.

Top off your look with an ivory Shashi Valentina bow barrette. I can’t stop thinking about this oversized satin bow barrette. This accessory makes the most stunning statement piece that can be worn anywhere and still look amazing. It’s also the epitome of sophistication.
