20 Slip Dresses You Need in Your Life

No doubt about it, ’90s fashion has come back a vengeance—whether it’s the Tommy Hilfiger gear spotted on everyone from Gigi Hadid to the downtown kids in Soho to the resurgence of chokers and brown lipstick ( thanks, Kylie), we’re feeling some kind of way about the sartorial nostalgia.

The piece that we’re most excited to welcome back, however, is the ever-versatile slip dress. Half lingerie, half effortless dressing, the slip dress evokes a sexy, insouciant elegance that’s just as comfortable being paired with Chuck Taylor high-tops as it is a pair of come-hither strappy sandals.

And while slip dresses are a staple of hot summer days—a veritable uniform to throw on and go—as the temperatures drop, a slip dress looks insanely chic layered over turtleneck or a crew-neck sweater—because honestly, it doesn’t get more ’90s than layering spaghetti straps like this.
