Why every wardrobe needs a slip dress
If you haven't already discovered the joys of the slip dress, what are you waiting for? This versatile piece has left the lingerie racks and made it into our wardrobes. The slip dress gives a hit of comfort, a shot of glamour and the versatility of your favourite white tee (you could even pair them together). Get set to slip into one of our favourite styles.
RUFFLE THINGS UP
A slip doesn't have to be a straight up-and-down affair. Try breaking up the silhouette with floral ruffles and sunshine yellow. This style wouldn't look out of place at an afternoon garden party, or you could throw it on for an impromptu night on the town - wherever you wear it, get ready for compliments.
SLIP AND SEQUINS
Glam your slip up a notch, with this mini dress covered entirely in sequins. With serious main character energy in every sequin - wear this number out and embrace the disco ball level dazzle. And while it's perfect for some evening drama, we’re advocates of bringing a touch more sparkle to every day. Slip over a plain white T-shirt for a look that will make that trip to the shops a lot more fun.
FRILLED TO MEET YOU
Thrilled by frills? Try a midi slip dress that combines a cami top, flared skirt and frilled waist. Simple slip dresses in soft fabrics are all about feeling comfortable in your skin. You could easily wear a dress like this for a fancy night out and feel as relaxed as you would in a cotton sun top or a slouchy jumpsuit. Plus, the simple top style makes it easy to wear with a jumper for off-duty supermodel looks, or layered with a blazer for laid-back luxe.
IT'S CAMI TIME
We've ruched up the simple cami style this season for mini dresses with plenty of interest and little details, such as open backs with adjustable tie straps. Find a ladies' slip dress with a short hemline in silky satin and a wonderfully retro paisley print – ideal for lazy afternoons along the beachfront. Vibrant pink and fuchsia tones make a bold statement, while the cowl back gives this silhouette a drapey, A-list look.
The slip dress fashion trend embraces the undergarment as an outfit you want everyone to see. Enjoy the silky feel of satin against your skin – which has the added benefit of being anti-static – in a midi-length camisole dress with spaghetti straps and lace detailing. Add a red carpet-worthy finish with some high heels. Long slip dresses are perfect for layering and, because they were designed as under pieces, they're always comfy. This design serves up sultry, effortless glamour that you can easily adjust for a more casual daytime look by adding a jumper or jacket and your favourite trainers.
