Spring is finally here! There has been one fashion item that everyone has been turning to for a effortless and flawless look. The item is pretty simple: it’s a dress. But not just any dress: The Slip Dress.
The origins of the slip dress go back to the 1920’s, when it was introduced to the fashion world as a undergarment. The slip was created to replace the infamous corset. Corsets were constructed with metal. During World War One, they were discouraged to be manufactured as metal was needed to create weapons.
It wasn’t until the 1990’s when fashion designers begin to create slip-inspired dresses. From short and sexy to long and sophisticated, the slip dress was seen on models mostly. The 2010’s was when the slip dress and lingerie-inspired clothing began a resurgence in fashion. Now this trend is seen on the runways and on the streets; at the club and on the red carpet.
The slip dress is classic, as well as multi-dimensional. If your looking for something new to add to your closet this spring, the slip dress should certainly be on top of your list.
