The slip dress is quintessential 90s. The supers – Kate Moss, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell were all big fans; Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox rocked them in Friends and who could forget Alicia Silverstone’s iconic Calvin Klein slip dress in Clueless. As with other 90s trends such as chokers and overalls, the slip dress has made a triumphant return to be the must-have piece of spring/summer. If you’re going to jump on board this trend don’t be afraid to mix it up just like these ladies…

This has taken key 90s pieces and given it a modern spin. Gary Pepper Girl’s Nicole Warne has paired it with a modern choker, minimalist mules and a printed cardi to give her slip dress a more contemporary feel. The block colour on the dress also gives it a modern feel.

A plain white slip dress is a fresh look for spring/summer. Espadrilles are also going to be a key addition to your wardrobe this season so when paired together this is a winning look. Chanel Boy bag optional!

coloured

This slip dress is a nod to the season’s military trend, in particular this shade of khaki green. The slip dress is quite minimalist so keep this look clean with delicate jewellery and a streamline, tan bag.

You can’t deny the impact of all-black everything. The black slip dress is the most classic of 90s pieces, but to give it an updated spin team it with a wide brimmed hat and a pair of Birkenstocks.

The denim jacket is one of those pieces that is surprisingly versatile. Team it with a navy slip dress for the ultimate in casual cool.

sneakers

The white sneaker trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon why not pair it with a slip dress for the ultimate in utilitarian looks – comfy yet cool. Just remember that if you have any detail on your dress such as the lace on this slip dress, that you should keep the rest of your outfit quite simple.
