Slip dresses are back – right out of the 90’s and showing up everywhere.
How would you wear a slip dress? Obviously not for the work place or a trip to the mall (unless you’re Rhianna)- more suited for a nice (very nice) evening out. Perfect for a cocktail party or dinner and a show.

So just what is a “slip dress”?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A slip dress is a woman’s dress that closely resembles an underslip or petticoat. It is traditionally cut on the bias, with spaghetti straps. Slip dresses first became widely worn in the last decade of the 20th century, as part of the underwear-as-outerwear trend, when they were made from layered chiffon, polyester satins and charmeuse, and often trimmed with lace. The slip dress looked like an undergarment, but was intended to be seen, and through the use of lace and sheer elements, offer glimpses of the body beneath.Designers associated with slip dresses include John Galliano, whose debut design for Dior was a lace-trimmed slip dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales in 1996; Calvin Klein and Narciso Rodriguez.
