Give Yourself the Slip à la Rihanna

Loose, yet clingy-in-all-the-right-places.


No one slinks into a room quite like Rihanna, but you can channel her swagger with ease thanks to a tried-and-true staple: the bias slip dress. There was a time when the spaghetti-strap delicate was reserved strictly for 'neath women's dress or the boudoir, but since the underwear-as-outwear trend took flight in the '90s, it's treaded classic territory.

Last night, the Barbados beauty put a street style spin on the look by pairing her plunging slip gown with a tangle of gold necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, as well as kicky metallic sneakers. The contrast between her elegant evening number and flashy, day-to-day accessories proves that when it comes to styling, she's ever the provocateur.

The beauty of the loose, yet clingy-in-all-the-right-places slip is that a woman, yes, any woman, can dress it up or down as she pleases. Shop 5 of this season's easiest, slip-on styles à la RiRi:

1. Gold Hawk Sheer Edge Slip Dress, $155;
