Last year, the slip dress caused a storm on the spring runways, as it ushered in a wave of 1990s inspired style. For 2017, the slinky slip has been transformed from a basic frock, with longer lengths and glamorous embellishments now making an appearance. The latest iterations of this trend are paired with everything from sneakers to oversized shades, which only proves how versatile the slip dress truly is. If you’re looking for new ways to embrace this lingerie inspired dress, try drawing your sartorial cues from the catwalks.
At Adam Selman, the slip dress was a floor-length creation with shimmering metallic detail. The futuristic-looking embellishment and silvery colour were an avant garde finish, while the tiny spaghetti straps kept the look delicate. As a more rebellious and dramatic approach to the slip dress, Selman’s take was paired with chunky black lace-up platforms and funky earrings.
The sexy slip is no longer just an evening essential, as Baja East proved that it can be worn even during the day. A flowing grey frock with a slit up the leg was styled with white kicks, a fluffy grey cardigan and a boho chic headband. Whether you’re heading to your favourite watering hole or running errands, turn to this runway for a casual Saturday afternoon look.
To keep your slip dress smart and chic, look no further than Christian Siriano. An ivory-coloured slip dress with thin halter straps imparts an immediately preppy look, while white ankle-strap shoes complete the ladylike outfit. Simply add retro cat eye sunglasses and a structured leather satchel, and watch your slip dress look go from seductive to classic.
