Love or Loathe: The slip dress trend

A slip dress is a dress with sphagetti straps bearing the resemblance of an undergarment but worn as an outwear. It became popular in the 20th century as part of the underwear-as-outwear trend.


As with other fashion trends, once someone in the limelight wears a certain thing, every other person tends to follow.

While it may seem cool and really sexy especially with people with a lot of meat on their skin (hehe), I don’t see myself jumping on the slip dress train except I am wearing it to bed as a night gown lol. However, I especially love how it’s been styled by the people below. Take a look and while at it, do not forget to let me know your thoughts on this trend.
