If there’s one transseasonal piece that is so hot right now, it’s the slip dress. Whether it’s the classic silk number, lace trimmed, jersey, cotton, patterned or plain, it’s the cut that counts. As seen above on Rumi Neely from Fashion Toast, the slip dress has made quite a comeback in the last year or so, thanks in large part to its original poster girl, Kate Moss. Together with silk shirting brand Equipment, the partnership has lead to Kate Moss for Equipment, which includes several slip dress designs.
And then there are the likes of Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and the like that have helped bring the look back on to the style pages again after the original slip dress queens – Kate, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow – did it 20 years ago.
Whether it’s worn on the street or to a bar for a night out, this versatile look is easy to wear thanks to the simple fact that you can layer it over tshirts and shirts or under a big knit with tights and boots for winter, or as is in summer.
