Is there anything more luxurious than lightweight silk cut on the bias? We love a slinky charmeuse that drapes beautifully across any shape and body. Step into the latest slip style of the season for a chic sartorial statement. At Pavilion we have several iterations of the iconic slip style garment from Nili Lotan and we are highlighting key themes for styling and incorporating them into your wardrobe.

The ultimate closet staple, a simple slip style silk cami is the ideal versatile piece for warm weather styling. Elevate utilitarian style separates like the Shon Pant by lightly tucking the cami in for a blousy effect that still highlights the waist. This juxtaposition of light, feminine fabric paired with unexpectedly rugged elements creates a pleasing aesthetic balance.
Make a short bias cut slip dress the most versatile piece in your closet to style. A bias cut means the fabric is cut and seamed on the diagonal, so when put on the body, it lightly expands to reveal the shape of the body in the most drapey, flattering way without any constriction. This type of silhouette looks exceptional when paired with sharp, tailored lines in an outfit or kept casual with sneakers and a sweater.
Combine a simple solid and a classic print to bring an element of playfulness to an otherwise subtle ensemble. Use the color of the print as a guide to match a blazer to accentuate the print of the dress even more. To complete the look add classic, chic footwear and a sparkling diamond bracelet to finish.
Upon first glance, a long slip gown may appear too formal for daily wear but we think you should lower your cost per wear and dress things down. Add an element of western inspired denim to make it appropriate for everyday wear, and a sneaker to solidify that sentiment.

To tone down the formal quality of a long cami gown even further, cuff the sleeves of your denim shirt and bring the hem to tie at the waist which will provide definition to an otherwise drapey silhouette. This allows the dress to work for any casual occaion. Add simple accessories that complement but don’t overpower its statement. Slip style pieces are incredibly versatile and serve as stellar layering pieces to infuse a well tailored and structured wardrobe with elements of easy glamor and femininity.
