The ‘90s slip dress trend is back, here’s how to wear it
Slip into the style of season
‘90s fashion is back in a big way and the biggest fashion trend Instagram, It-girls, models, fashion designers and celebrities can’t get enough of is the ‘90s slip dress.
Here’s who’s wearing it, how to style it and beautiful slip dress options to shop now.
How to style a slip dress and the slip dresses to shop now
Back in the day, the slip was worn and loved by every model, style icon, A-lister and even royalty from Kate Moss to Naomi Campbell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, Reese Witherspoon, and Princess Diana to name but a few. These leading lights donned a slip for every occasion, from film premieres to red carpet events, casually to get coffee, and to say “I do”.
Indeed, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy famously wore a slip dress for her 1996 wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr. which launched a thousand replica dresses for brides who coveted her beautiful slip-style dress designed by Narcisco Rodriguez.
Flash forward to 2022 and models like Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski are frequently spotted and photographed wearing a ‘90s-style slip dress, but with a 2022 style update.
Special occasion slip dress
Take your cues from Hailey Bieber who frequently steps into a slip dress for special occasion dressing, which for Hailey is The Met Gala or the Grammys, but for us might be date night, a birthday soirée, hens party, girls’ night out, engagement party, charity gala and everything special in-between. For these types of events, Hailey has opted for floor-length slip dresses with a glam heel, case in point Hailey’s Saint Laurent white silk slip dress for the 2022 Grammys (see the look on her Instagram, here).

Everyday and summer slip dresses
One of the key reasons slip dresses keep coming back into fashion is comfort. Slip dresses are extremely comfortable while also looking exceptionally chic. And, slip dresses can be an everyday option, just ask model Emily Ratajkowski who often wears a short or midi-length slip dress for every task from walking her dog in the streets of New York to getting coffee.
Depending on the season, Emily styles her everyday slips with a chunky knit cardigan in cooler weather or for summer, straight up with sandals, a wedge heel or white sneakers. It’s a simple and fashion-forward outfit option.

A slip dress is also the perfect piece to throw on over your bikini after a day on the beach to head directly to dinner.
