Simple yet versatile, the slip dress has stood the test of time and continues to be one of the most reinvented fashion staples today. Easily dressed up or down, it can be layered in myriad ways or worn on its own, paired with your favourite heels or chunky sneakers.
Kate Moss, Jennifer Aniston, Winona Ryder and more popularised slips in the ’90s and early Aughts.

Ahead, iconic slip dresses as worn by celebs over the years.
