Remember Carrie’s sexy slip dresses in Sex and the City?
And Jenna Rink from 13 Going On 30’s gorgeous slip dress and polka dot pairing that was totally a match made in fashion heaven!
What do they have in common besides the beautiful women? They both looked so fly and effortlessly chic in their light slinky slipdresses!
These dresses are undisputedly one of the easiest ways to inject a touch of luxe minimalism into any wardrobe. Earmarked as one of the hottest trends to re-emerge from the archives of the 90s’, it is the perfect example of what a wardrobe staple should be: low-maintenance, eternally flattering and supremely versatile. No longer just limited to the bedroom, take it out to brunch, to the office or to a girl’s night out in the city!

Now, let’s head into fashion ville!
It’s Highly Adaptable
Unlike your trusty pair of sweatpants, you can wear your maxi dress to work, to a dinner party, to a wedding, to run errands and also to lounge around your house in. All while looking impeccably put-together.
Available in a huge variety of prints, colours and fabrics, It is the ultimate blank canvas piece and can be easily transformed from casual weekend dress to slinky showstopper with the addition of a few key accessories.
Wear it with a slouchy cardigan and leather ankle booties for a look that is simultaneously comfy and edgy, then when evening comes, simply swap out the cardi and booties for a statement necklace and strappy sandals.
It’s Warm Weather-Friendly
For those of you who get dressed according to the weather report, the slipdress is the Holy Grail of warm weather clothing, which makes it perfect for Singapore’s sunny skies and balmy temperatures.
Spaghetti straps, lightweight fabrics and airy silhouettes keep you cool while a figure-flattering cut holds the fort on sophistication. Opt for breathable fabrics and pastel shades for daily wear but don’t be afraid to go luxe with silk, satin and rich jewel tones for more formal occasions. As an unexpectedly playful take on a silk slip, layer it over a floaty white blouse and tie the look together with lace up brogues.
It’s Refreshingly Low-Maintenance
While slipdresses are often cut close to the body, they are rarely clingy, which means that they’re great for highlighting your curves without being overtly body-conscious.
Some of them may come in very delicate fabrics that require a little more aftercare compared to your run-of-the-mill shift but in terms of wearability, slipdresses are about as low maintenance as it can get.
There’s no fussy detailing to fret over, you get to bypass the process of having to mix and match separates in the morning and it alleviates the fear of anything riding up or bunching throughout the day.
Look for dresses that feature adjustable shoulder straps and that are cut on the bias as they lengthen the frame and can be tweaked to suit a variety of proportions.
Slipdresses are a great example of how a directional trend can transition into something with genuine staying power that’ll outlast seasonal fads. Whether it’s the classic shape or the wide variety of patterns, prints, fabrics and colours that they sometimes come in, the ubiquitous slipdress works for a multitude of occasions and style personalities.
Just as relevant today as it was during its 90s’ renaissance, the magic of the slipdress comes from the fact that it is a disarmingly simple garment. Just like the white shirt and the LBD, it is a perennial style staple that can be easily reinvented and regenerated.
I hope you guys had fun exploring the world of slipdresses with me.
