My Style

Reminiscent of the 90’s, the slinky dress trend is back | In focus The slip dress

The slip dress has been one of the hottest Spring Summer trends of 2016 on the ramp globally. Why should you invest in one? Because it induces a feeling of lightness, ease and is fuss free. Michelle Pfeiffer’s style from the movie ‘Scarface’, seemed to inspire a number of designers to reinterpret the classic slip dress. Here are a few ways in which you can style a la Pfeiffer or Kate Moss

Layer over a top

Massimo Giorgetti gave us some serious layering cues. His show for Emilio Pucci in Milan shows some stunning slips layered over sheer tops. You can follow by pairing a slip with regular tops, t-shirts or even a shirt.


With flats

Nothing exudes ease more than flats and who better than Victoria Beckham to look up to as the new ambassador of flats. She paired a slip dress with sleek white flats for her New York SS 16 collection. You can try a number of options from slippers, espadrilles to slip-ons.



Looking for a casual look? Alexander Wang has enough ideas for you. He paired his exquisite satin slips with bomber jackets, caps and runners. Shoes with slip dresses is the coolest new pairing. Ladies, take some notes!


Get creative

Don’t be fooled by the simple silhouette of a slip. You can still have fun with it. Risk takers like Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy opted for heavily embellished pieces. Or take inspiration from the high slits in slip dresses, seen at Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein.
