Well, you could say it (the maxi slip dress) is the more wearable version. Obviously, just by looking at the two starlets, you can already tell that the trend is not meant for red carpet evening wear; it works best on casual looks. It also looks like this is another case of lingerie becoming outerwear.

So what do you think? Would you wear maxi slip dresses this summer?

Before you answer, allow me to highlight the good points – it is a great way to dress up a plain and boring tank dress (mini or maxi), and it can also be used as a cover-up while you’re on the beach. Hey, you can even wear it over short shorts and a tank top.

So, again, would you wear the maxi slip dress? Well, I say why not?
