Every decade has its own particularly embarrassing fashion faux pas to grapple with, and there were plenty of them in the ‘90s. We had butterfly clips, stick-on earrings, stir up pants and fanny packs, just to name a few. Personally speaking, I would go crazy if these wince-inducing styles were resurrected.
However, amongst these disasters, there’s one trend that I really do miss from that era— the slip dress. I’m still obsessed with the iconic sheer slip dress Kate Moss wore to a party back in 1993, when she was just 19. To be honest, I’m not sure why the slip dress went away in the first place.
So you can imagine my delight when I saw these slinky dresses being sent down the runways recently. These intimates-inspired frocks are definitely having a major moment in fashion right now.
If the thought of wearing them as workwear terrifies you, calm down. You can wear a slip dress in many ways: Layer it under a T-shirt, or spruce it up with minimal accessories. Here are five easy way to style it for work that will ensure that you still look elegant, polished and professional!
