slip up

summer’s latest trend is already in your closet.

Aside from Swedish Hasbeens and skinny cargo pants, last summer was all about knit sweaters with holes. Thanks to  built-in ventilation, we thought the trend worked as a perfectly bohemian bathing suit coverup.

And though we're still into holey knits, it's time for something new to take the spotlight. 

Enter the over-slip, which is basically the same thing as a slip, except for one difference: You don't wear anything over it. 

Okay, so yes the whole underwear-as-outerwear thing sounds a bit risque, but it don't rule it out just yet.  In addition to their airy and non-restrictive nature, slips can be worn over a bathing suit when heading to the beach, and look adorable when paired with old ankle boots for a night out. Plus, they barely take up any room if going on a weekend getaway.
