Lightweight and seductively simple, slip dresses are a year-round staple that exude feminine charm.
Like most comebacks this season, the raving 90s seem to be the common denominator. From retro trainers to oversized sweaters - and now - the slip dress. And after having seen it on pretty much every catwalk for SS 16, we can't really work out why it ever went away. From silky pleats and draped floral maxis, slip dresses are key to this season's lingerie as outerwear trend. The concept of the slip dress lies in its easy wearability and timeless structure, whether it's slinky spaghetti strapped slip dresses or chunkier styles of edgy proportions. Worn with spiky heeled stilettos or simple ballerina flats, slip dresses are a versatile option when it comes to channeling that "we woke up like this" look.
Choose a knee-length black dress featuring soft tulle layers and delicate straps for a classic LBD you can constantly change up with different accessories and shoes. Slip dresses in casual jersey materials are a great way to play with pattern and print, so look for botanical, geometric and tropical motifs to stay on-trend and layer over a turtleneck in colder weather. Go for midi-length slip dresses with ladylike pleats for a retro take on the look. Slip dresses with drawstring or elasticated waists are also a comfy option for daywear.
