Wearing dresses that replicate slips has become a new, popular trend displayed on various red carpets and worn by celebrities like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner.  Effortless and chic, it can be dressed down with sneakers or paired with high heels for a fancier occasion.
Although pairing sneakers with the dress gives a look that's slightly more casual and sporty, my favorite way to wear this dress is to pair it with heels, especially if they have an irresistible puff at the toe.  The juxtaposition of a preppy heel with the relaxed nature of a lacy, silk dress creates a sensual feeling, without being too revealing.  It also makes me think of the famous robots from one of my favorite movies Austin Powers.  Who wouldn't want to be a fashionable ladybot that squirts poisonous gas out of her bra?
