Over the past few months, the slip dress has made a serious style comeback, slipping out of the bedroom and into our everyday wardrobe.

The style reigned supreme during the 90s, and now, is sartorially and socially acceptable, according to pretty much every street style star.

It can be worn in countless ways (for example, throw a slip over a T-shirt), but we’re currently loving a slinky, spaghetti-strap dress worn with sneakers. Why? This look epitomises nonchalant elegance with a sporty edge.

So, if you’re ready to jump on board the slip dress train then keep scrolling to see our top tips for nailing this trend. You can thank us later.

Trending: Slip dress with sneakers

1. Opt for colour

Fresh white tones and classic black may be versatile, but why not stand out from the crowd and don a bold hued frock? Fuchsia is a fun option, but if you’re only looking to dip your toe into the trend, go for blush (unfortunately the exact style on the right is sold out, but shop some similar designs below).

2. Layer up

Take note from these street style stars and throw on a leather jacket or oversized knit over your slip dress. We promise this will be a cool addition to your look, especially during the trans-seasonal weather.

3. Pair with sleek accessories

For a sportier look, choose a small tote or backpack (shop a few of our favourite styles here). They’re easy to wear, and great for storing all of your essentials. Or opt for a wide brimmed hat. Not only do hats look great, but they’re functional, too: protecting your face from the sun.
