There’s something about the heat of summer that makes the idea of shimmying into a silk slip so appealing. Maybe it’s the lightness of the silk against your skin, or the comfort of the fabric on those long, hot days… Either way, I always appreciate an excuse to drape myself in fine silks!

(And if you’re not sure what difference is between silk satin and cheaper polyester satin, check out the Instagram post Estelle recently wrote about it).

Silk usually makes a comeback every summer for lingerie, but this year I’m seeing a trend of silk slips that double as both loungewear and dresses you can wear out and about. So many slips this season are designed in gorgeous opaque colours and fun prints that they’re pratically begging to be shown off in public.

The best part about this lingerie-as-outerwear trend? Versatility! As we transition from the summer months into the cooler days of autumn, you can pair these ‘dresses’ with a slouchy cardigan, or layer them over a shirt and matching silk stockings. Dress them up or down, the possibilities are endless.

Here are 19 slips made from 100% silk that you can wear around the house, and beyond!

La Perla Short Silk Slip in ‘Topaz Yellow’, $214 (~£165 / ~182€)
Liberty Connie Silk Charmeuse Chemise, £425 (~$553 / ~469€)*
Nili Lotan Floral Print Silk Satin Dress, £620 (~$799 / ~679€)*

Have you ever styled a silk slip dress by a lingerie/loungewear brand as outerwear?
