A wardrobe staple, timeless, easy to style. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said about the slip dress?

There’s a reason why the ‘90s mainstay has stuck around for decades on end; it takes you from day to night, oh-so-versatile, and embedded in our minds as an effortless choice that can still achieve maximum glamour.

Who could forget the era of slip dress ala Kate Moss? A.k.a, the early 90s’. Back then, the supermodel usually paired her dreamy satin slip dresses with nothing more than a perfectly messy bedhead, a simple pair of black pumps and a dinky minaudiere — and there you had it, a red-carpet look which has remained iconic even to this day.

Coach has recently taken the slinky, spring-y staple to the runway (Spring Summer 2018, to be exact), bringing the slip dress back in satin, overlaid with lace, bedecked with rhinestones, and even in metallic faux leather. Long story short: the slip dress was given a full on Coach treatment — rock-and-roll, with a jug full of femininity.

Other designers such as Salvatore Ferragamo and Paul and Joe have also weighed in with ethereal, willowy pieces in almost-sheer fabrics and timeless florals.
