Inspired by the rebellious spirit and nonchalance of the 90s, the biggest trends for Fall have resurrected a few classics: combat boots, leather trousers, denims and of course, the season-less slip dress. Although never truly rendered as out of style, these beloved garments have been re-imagined by design deities within the context of a post-pandemic world.
This year’s slip dress brings together the easy shapes of lounge wear, the anticipation for jet-setting again and glamour of dressing for a night out on town. Paired with sneakers or this season’s “ugly sandal,” the slip dress succinctly echoes the quintessential WFT style repertoire. In true Sarah Jessica Parker style, the addition of a sexy heel unveils a fashion moment to last the ages. Case in point, the iconic newspaper print Galliano dress elevated by a pair of black studded Louboutins. Anchored by combat boots, the slip is instantly transformed into the ultimate cool chick, off-duty uniform.
Equal parts on-trend, timeless and transitional, this season’s tight edit of slip dresses highlights a new mindset for updating wardrobes. Chosen on merits of quality, sustainability and versatile design, slip dresses in this feature inspire the fashion icon within all of us to invest in eternal style instead of indulging on fleeting trends.

Core pieces intended to take wearers through the seasons include lounge sets, camisoles, skirts and slip dresses. D’Offray’s Gigi Slip Dress is fashion investment made of 100% fine silk. Cut on the bias, it drapes from the body effortlessly so that you can wear it under a coat or pared down for a night out with the gals.

Based at the heart of New York’s Garment District, the brand was borne out of a desire to build a versatile, travel-friendly, affordable year-round wardrobe. The concept behind the brand changes common perception that investment or transitional pieces are expensive. The team writes, “Into the Night is based on the belief that high end fashion shouldn’t be out of reach. Every girl deserves a piece for the right location, time and night.” Although accessible in terms of price points (which ranges between $65-$200), pieces from Into The Night are made to high quality standards. Garments are also produced in limited batches, with option for customers to get fitted or have their pieces altered with the brand’s in-house seamstress.
The brand’s take on slip dresses display impeccable workmanship and construction. Pieces like that Nyx Maxi Slip Dress as well as the timeless Promenade Dress drape, cling and cinch as if they were custom. More interestingly, the addition of design element via ruching or art-inspired prints add contemporary flair to a classic garment.
KES is a New York based fashion label, reinforcing that eco friendly is uber chic season after season. Combining urban flair with easy and effortless shapes, the brand’s season-less pieces “traverse the realm between day and night to embody casual refinement.” Garments by KES are distinguished by meticulous attention to detail, construction, and use of high quality materials that honor people and planet.
For Fall, the sustainable label launched a stunning collection of slip dresses, featuring a sumptuous palette of earth and jewel tones. I have yet to see an offering as wide, yet cleverly curated as the one on the KES’s website. Here, you will find an expansive range of shapes and silhouettes suited to women of all shapes and sizes. The brand’s coveted slip dress compendium is also testament to its designer’s ability to merge modesty, sophistication and edginess in one piece.
