The 9 best slip dresses, and how fashion influencers are styling them

Posted by for Fashion

The silky slip dress has had an update for summer 2020, and we’re ready to embrace it

It’s not unusual for a 90s trend to make a reappearance, in fact bucket hats, flip flops and tank tops are still gaining momentum this summer. The cami slip dress is another one of these comeback styles to add to the list and it manages to not only work across all seasons, but all occasions. 

Whether you dress it down with trainers for a summer stroll or you dress it up with strappy mules, and layered golden jewellery — it’ll be one of the hardest working items in your wardrobe. 

While the silky fabric, and midi length is still the same as previous decades the spaghetti straps have been updated to bra-friendly thicker styles (yay). Making them even easier to wear than previous 90s numbers, these new slips aren’t far removed from a chic night dress with the slinky fabric and delicate floral prints.

If wearing a nightie outside looks this good, then we’re all for it. Our fashion team has already spotted many of our favourite fashion influencers wearing them and subsequently carefully created a sleek edit of the best ones to shop now.

We love the way actress Mouna Traoré styles her bright pink slip with white trainers and a clashing colour pop handbag.

Influencer Lucy Williams teams her backless slip with cowboy boots which toughens up the trend.
