Lingerie as outerwear? It may sound like something we left behind in the 90s, but the slip dress is coming back with full force. From the runways of New York and Paris to the red carpet and magazines, the slip dress trend is here to stay. So what exactly is a slip dress? In general, it is a lightweight design usually made of a silk-like material with thin, spaghetti straps.
Of course there’s many variations–from an evening wear gown embellished with sparkling beads to a minimal silhouette with a short hemline. No matter the style, the slip dress has made its way from bedroom to red carpet in the past few years. Looking to wear the slip dress yourself?
