Basically, the not so basic ways to wear a basic black slip dress and how these are anti-fast fashion.
BASIC NOT BASIC
While a black slip dress is something you see me wearing on a weekly basis at least, I always like to mix up how I style them. It depends on your mood, but this is easily the most transformable basic essential to have on hand. Perfect for repeat wears, my little collection of slip dresses are some of the first things I reach for.
The not so basic part? Transforming them with elevated shoes (think metallics, embroidery, stud details, buckles, etc..), a statement earring, bangle, and interesting sunglasses. It’s all in the details. Investing in quality over quantity, your well-made accessories are the key to making a basic slip dress a lot more interesting.
FREE & FORM – ANTI FAST FASHION
This beautiful slip dress is from the label, Free & Form. I am so happy to have been introduced to the label whose designs are relaxed but refined, modern and sophisticated. The Sydney-based label’s founder Angela Yao designs each piece inspired by the fluid and effortless beauty of natural landscapes. The effortless style combines with streamline designs and detailing embraces the unique twist to a minimal look.
Even better, Free and Form are big supporters of moving away from fast fashion. To combat wastefulness, the designs intend to replace the fast fashion shopping habit with buying fewer items of higher quality. Aka investment pieces and basically what I harp on about here with wardrobe essentials and a capsule all the time.
I knew I had found a beautiful label that I couldn’t wait to introduce to you all. After all, buying less and buying better is what I am all about. Basic stuff, right?
