There is an undeniable 90s presence in both the fashion and beauty world, but one 90s trend in particular is a tremendous hit among the “It” girls – the slip dress.

Remember the polka-dot slip dress by Zara that was worn by quite literally everyone last year? We admit it; we hardly expected the slip dress’ second reign to last this long. Judging from the runways, however, it’s evident that the trend has firmly rooted itself and is in it for the long haul. Who can forget Gigi Hadid’s internet-breaking walk in an open-back slip dress on the Jacquemus Fall/Winter 2020 runway?

After spending most of the year lounging in our pajamas, most of us are easing ourselves back into the grind. The barely-there aesthetic slinky garment (a Kate Moss favorite) is exceptionally alluring and also helps bridge the gap between loungewear and ready-to-wear. The best part? There’s a slip dress for virtually every occasion. No, seriously – trust us. From a binge-watching session at home with your BFF to a raging night out, you can depend on the humble slip dress to have your back.

If you’ve been asking Google ‘how to wear a slip dress’, this one is for you. Scroll down to read our guide on wearing a slip dress in not one but seven different ways.

When You Have a Meeting at 6 and Dinner Reservations at 7

Worried about making your dinner reservations in time after a meeting? Transform your slip dress into a business casual ensemble by teaming it up with a matching or contrast blazer. Finish the look with elegant accessories et voila. Ditch the blazer and let your snug slip dress do that talking as you join your bestie for a post-meeting dinner.

To a Music Festival

While music festivals still stand canceled for the foreseeable future, we know what we’re wearing one once they’re back on our schedules. You’d catch us swaying to the beats in a dainty floral printed or a tie-dye slip dress. We especially love Winnie Harlow’s gathered high-slit slip dress.

Leather Weather

The risqué leather dress got a 2020 update in the form of a slip dress. Feeling gutsy? Opt for a backless version à la Hailey Beiber
