A Warm Welcome Back To: The Slip Dress!

Want an easy, breezy update to your 2019 wardrobe? Silky slip dresses, that good old 90s fashion superstar, have bounced right back into style in all their slinky, comfy glory, and with them, they've brought their close cousin, the slip skirt.



(Kate Moss was a 90s slip dress queen)

If you remember them from the first time around, you're probably remembering how comfortable slip dresses are,  and cheering that you can throw them on again without looking like you've wandered off the Party of Five set. And if you're new to the style, prepare to fall in love. These guys can go anywhere, a little bit slinky for evening wear or pared back with a sweater or tee for a more casual vibe.  They're also a great transitional piece - warm it up with a knit on top and you've got a very Autumn (or English summer) friendly look.

The rules are simple. Use a silk or satin fabric that's as crease resistant as possible. You want a shiny, flowy look but if it's scrunchy and wrinkled, it will look cheap.  Also, whilst muted neutrals and nudes are always safe,  we're seeing a lot of these in splashy, vivid hues and funky prints, so don't be shy with bright colour or animal pattern.
