The first mention of a slip dress appeared in the Middle Ages as a piece of underwear, a loose-fitting, lightweight garment women wore under their dresses. Women enjoyed the ease of them as undergarments and continued to wear them this way through the ages.

But in the 1930’s bias cut slips were introduced, allowing for more stretch and comfort. And in the 1940’s and 50’s the slips gained a new glamour adding embellishment details as lace.

In the 90’s slip dress became a strong trend becoming almost a synonym of this era. There were short and fitted to the body versions that soon expanded into longer evening wear as well.

The latest slip styles bring us back to 90’s nostalgia, but also align with a renewed interest in loungewear generated by our current “work from home” situation.
