The fashion Gods have spoken, and it looks like this one trend is not only raging, but here to stay: Slip dresses. A token '90s look, this iconic dress has been seen on the biggest babes of the decade, from Cher Horowitz's Calvin Klein white number, to Jennifer Aniston's lace slip LBD, to pretty much all of Kate Moss' grunge-chic looks throughout the years.
There's a reason they've recently resurged: Those thin straps and low neckline are just so, so flattering, and the silhouette is so simple that it just works on practically everyone. And, they're super easy to style. The beauty of the slip dress, too, is its ability to serve as the perfect layer. In the summer months, it's that effortless dress you need for a night out, or even to a boozy brunch. But as the fall and winter months creep toward us (they always sneak up, don't they?), they don't just get packed away with your summer wear in the back of your closet.
My personal favorite way to layer a slip dress is with a cropped sweater on top, doubling up on the '90s trends. Bonus points if you can find an off-the-shoulder sweater! If you happen to feel especially Cher-like, throw the slip dress on top of a T-shirt or even a sweater. Voilà, an instantly chic and warm outfit. Pair with a choker and combat boots, and you're a hop, skip, and a jump away from basically crawling out of a time machine.
