As far as dress trends go, they don’t come much more iconic than the slip dress. A firm fixture on the fashion scene since the early ’90s, when they served as supermodel uniform (namely to Kate Moss, whose silver sheer dress will go down in history as the most risqué outfit of its time), the style has gone on to prove that it has serious staying power.

Often cut on the bias of cloth to ensure a body-hugging fit, the slip dresses’ signature traits include spaghetti straps, a midi length, slinky fabric and a subtle V-front neckline. However, as its popularity continues to grow, we’re seeing different iterations begin to take shape—think thicker straps and more structured silhouettes. What’s more, they’ve transformed from being an after-dark item into a daytime staple, too. When worn over T-shirts and paired with a chunky cardigan and kicks, it’s more versatile than you may have initially thought.
