Everyone knows that slip dresses are having a major moment right now. This midi option by Walk of Shame looks elegant enough when worn alone with some heels. But those of us who are looking for both more coverage and edge could probably layer it on top of a fitted white t-shirt. Or possibly a long, drapey cardigan for a more comfy and downplayed look. (Priced at $274)

This check wrap dress by Mango is enough to be an elevated look all on its own. For those of us who wish to wear it well into the colder months, it looks just as good layered on top of a turtleneck and paired with white over-the-knee boots, as it is here. (Priced at $79.98)
