As If...You Needed An Excuse to Wear Slip Dresses Again (Hint: You Don't!)
More evidence that the '90s are back.
One only has to open a magazine, turn on the TV or walk down the street to see evidence that the ’90s are a huge source of inspiration for all things fashion right now. High-cut bathing suits? Check. Platform sandals? Check. Chokers? Check.
The latest flashback we’re seeing from the decade is the beloved slip dress. Utterly feminine and totally flattering, when we think of the classic slip dress we typically picture Carolyn Bessette marrying JFK Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow snuggling Brad Pitt at the 1996 Oscars, or Cher in practically every scene in Clueless.
Which isn’t to say that the slip dress ever really left the fashion world—a spaghetti strap frock has been a staple for, like, ever—but it was major in the 90s and we only have to look to at Rihanna, Zendaya, Mandy Moore and Maisie Williams to see that they’re equally major a couple of decades later. And why wouldn’t they be? Flattering on busts small and large, the straps elongate (read: thin out!) the neck, while the dress fluidly drapes your curves, rather than hugging or tugging them.
Below we’ve rounded up 15 options that you can wear now, straight through fall with the help of a cozy cardigan. Pair with stilletos, sandals or military boots, and your look is complete. The best part? These start at just 15 bucks. Though if you want the Nili Lotan number Rihanna donned, you’ll have to shell out a bit more…worth it in our humble opinion!
