NYE dressing is SO. DAMN. HARD. Which is why we are giving you underwear as outerwear.
NYE is tough, and for most pretty expensive. The slip dress is our answer to pretty much all of our problems. With its silky material, spaghetti straps and lacy trim, it is a dress that oozes sexiness in the most understated way possible. NYE is a time to dress up, party hard and look forward to the year ahead. With black Friday on the horizon, spot these deals and enjoy your minimal effort.
On Sunday, Selena Gomez hit the red carpet at the 2017 AMAs. Gomez hasn’t performed live since her kidney transplant this summer.

It retails for an affordable $145 and you can shop the exact slip here.
Vogue’s Bay Garnett, is a slip dress styling aficionado and says that it all depends on context. “You can have such different perceptions of the slip dress – in a tacky situation it looks terrible, but it can look incredible, too. Either East Hampton or totally grunge. To me the appeal is to deconstruct the sexiness, to subvert it.”
