If you’ve assumed that slip dresses are only meant for the boudoir, you thought wrong. Sultry, feminine and smokin’ hot, these slinky ’90s icons are often made with satin-like material or silk if you’re feeling fancy. Not only are they oh-so-smooth and soft on the skin, but they’re also light and airy, making them the perfect addition to your wardrobe when it comes to Singapore’s scorching weather.
Last but certainly not least, slip dresses are versatile and can be styled in multiple ways—with heeled sandals ala Kate Moss or with a knit jumper and combat boots like every single female grunge icon.

Mention gold dresses and you tend to conjure up images of intricately embroidered brocade gowns, which are frankly, not suitable for everyday wear.

We say go monochromatic with a pair of gold heels.
