These 13 Slip Dresses Will Be A Breeze To Wear From Now To Fall

·2 min read

While there was a time when the slip dress was considered strictly bedroom — a hidden inner layer normally associated with curlers and fuzzy slippers — the lingerie-inspired frock has shed its pajama moniker to become a bona fide stand-alone dress. The slinky, Victoria's Secret catalog-bound number of the '90s has evolved past adult sleepover jammies. In fact, it's even evolved beyond the Céline and Saint Laurent chemises that kickstarted the trend a few years back.

Nowadays, the dress is being reimagined into wedding guest dresses, happy hour attire, and house dresses. It's a four-season buy because you can wear it solo in the summertime, then layered it with a white tee as it got cooler, and eventually a giant chunky sweater on top when it's freezing. For slip dresses that say cozy day sleeping on a picnic blanket, rather than a mood-lit bedroom, scroll on.
