To Slip Or Knot? 7 Slip Dresses I’m Falling For This Spring
They’re baaaaaaaccckkk! The 90s staple has found its way back onto the runway and hopefully, into our closets. Now, before you go scoffing off the trend, telling me why it isn’t for you, I’ve found 7 simple slip dresses to covet that fit a variety of body types. Big boobs? I gotcha. No curves? Yep. What I’m NOT talking about is a practically unwearable piece of clothing like this one (it even makes the model look lopsided and heavy!), but the light-as-air, close-to-the-skin bias cut of a smooth silk dress that feels like heaven when it’s on.
Plus, we are better armed in 2013 with an incredible arsenal of undergarments, thanks to SPANX and other body-enhancing shape wear! Girl, it’s time to give it another go! Here are the sensational seven slip dresses I’m falling for this Spring. As inspiration, see left, Stella McCartney’s fab wide strap body hugging slip aaaaallllmost qualifies as an A-line, and that’s the beauty of the next level of a slip dress.
Acne’s tiered georgette slip dress shows that the right bias cut fabric will hug your body in juuuuust the right spot. ($300)
LNA’s Powell Slip Dress is as classic as you get with a maxi cut. Side slits are essential and ensure it won’t grab at your belly! And wouldn’t it be adorable with a full coverage bralet underneath for support? ($255)
Alexander Wang’s racer back silk dress with cut outs is perfect for the big-boobed girl who could never pull the look off until now! Plus, that above-the-knee length is parfait! ($695)
Does your jaw not DROP at the sight of this Chloe archival piece now available on netaporter? Stuh. Ning. ($2,995)
Super flirty and a tad tribal, I’m also opting for Zara’s optical printed strappy dress ($79.90)
If you’re square shaped athankfully, there’s one for you too, now! Check out Free People’s adorbs ruffled Cherry Chapstick dress ($78). Love it in black or blue.
