It's the year 2020, but when it comes to slip dresses, it might as well be 1995, because the trend is going strong — just as strong as it was when Jennifer Aniston was wearing those slinky, sultry little numbers as Rachel Green on Friends and, of course, on the red carpet.
While there are commonly details on the slip dress that make it seem fit for the bedroom — romantic lace and spaghetti-thin straps, to name a couple — the boudoir mood can be channeled in the streets, and there are so many ways to do it. A slip dress is lightweight enough to layer, and it's one of the only wardrobe staples that looks just as good under a chunky knit or floor-length coat as it does over a ribbed turtleneck or your favorite long sleeve.
It's also one of those date night go-to basics that can easily be worn to the office underneath an oversize blazer during the day — and we know you don't have too many versatile items like that in your closet! Ahead, we're breaking down everything there is to know about a slip dress in its most recognizable iteration, and also offering you prime styling tips, along with some of our favorite shopping options if you're low on stock.
