Fashion’s Latest Trend: Silk Slip Dresses

While we’re still fawning over the return of crop tops and chokers to fashion, another 90s trend has slipped back into fashion – the silk slip dresses.

It seems that contemporary fashion has spoken. If there’s one decade that we’ve borrowed the most popular trends from, it would have to be the 90s. With the return of the choker and crop top, it seemed that the decade was truly on top, but with the addition of another trend, the 90s reign supreme.

You might’ve caught a glimpse of Jennifer Aniston wearing it in Friends or seen this stylish trend on model Chanel Iman as she walks down the street. In one of her best street styles, Rihanna can be seen pairing this trend with a large fur coat. Often times, celebrities set the trends, and it seems that they have spoken with the return of the silk slip dresses.

Check out how today’s celebrities are wearing this comeback style of the 90s.

From the mid-90s to mid-2000s, Jennifer Aniston took Hollywood by storm. Not only was her character a trendsetter, she later became an icon. While her character Rachel Green was a fan of all of the 90s fashion (chokers, mom jeans, crop tops), she could also be seen wearing another popular style – the silk slip dress. In this look from a Friends episode, we see Aniston wearing a black slip dress with buttons down the middle.

Actress Amber Heard is stunning as she hits the streets in fashion’s latest trend. In a rose gold slip dress, Heard keeps it interested with her choice of accessories. She pairs the dress with nude sandals and accessorizes with a silver clutch and black and silver beaded necklace.

Chanel Iman

Although Chanel Iman’s outfit is clearly a slip dress, her design is a pleasant change from the norm. Her olive green dress features spaghetti straps at the top that create an elegant and sexy V-neck. Along the chest region, the dress is lined with a deeper green to give the dress an edgier look. This slip dress also features a daring slit up the thigh and a flared hem. Iman finished the outfit with black strappy pumps and a black fringe clutch.

Kendall Jenner

If there is one celebrity always ahead of the trends, it’s Kendall Jenner. In her own take on the slip dress, Kendall pairs her champagne gold slip dress on top of a plain white t-shirt. Most of her look remains neutral with a white gold duster that she wears off the shoulders and taupe thigh-high boots.

Rihanna

In a street style we love, Rihanna took the slip dress to another level. Rihanna paired a copper mini slip dress with a large fur coat. Keeping the metals at play, she paired the look with silver ankle strap sandals. Although Rihanna’s look is relatively dressier, she is somehow able to make a navy baseball cap complete her outfit.

Rita Ora

Because of her affinity for red lipstick, Rita Ora might already be known as a lady in red. She makes sure the name sticks when she hit the streets in this outfit. In a bold statement, Ora wanted to make sure her viewers knew that she’s definitely here for the return of the slip dress. Rita Ora stepped out in a short red slip dress. She paired this look with black ankle boots and handbag.

Selena Gomez

What would a trend be without the queen of Instagram wearing it? With the most followers on Instagram, Selena Gomez has upwards of 94 million people who paid attention to her fashion and this dress. In a sexy, elegant, and sophisticated look, Selena wears a midi length ivory silk slip dress. She lets the dress speak for itself and keeps her accessories simple with black pumps and handbag.

One of the great things about fashion is that brands pay attention to what celebrities are wearing and make their style fit the trends. The bad thing is that it sometimes takes brands a while to keep up with the fashion trends.
