When nightwear becomes daywear: SLIP dress season’s finally arrived


There was a time when silky slips were confined to the bedroom, but thanks to some forward thinking fashionistas the simple slip dress is about to become this year’s fashion staple.

In recent months the slip dress seems to have been given a whole new lease of life as it’s been worn both over and under tees, with cowboy boots and leather jackets and even on the red carpet.

And this trend is only going to keep getting bigger and better as the new Autumn/Winter stock finally arrives in stores.

Check out some of our favourite slipspiration below.
