In Part 5 of our Edit No.3 we take a look at a 90s classic, the slip dress! I’ve been a long time admirer, although always doubted that I could wear one… too much skin, too body skimming, too sexy!

But I’ve been wrong all these years. And there was no slip better to prove this point than that of nineties globally green proprietor, John Patrick, and his line organic. Shown here on Mirabelle, the type of arrestingly tough woman perfect for wearing the slip dress, in three variations for fall.

Traditionally cut on the bias with spaghetti straps, the slip dress has transformed into a piece worth buying and keeping around all year long. It could be easy to fall on our Drew Barrymore-loving memories and put a white tee under a black slip — but to sophisticate the look with a black on black take, by wearing a turtleneck instead, feels both fresh and smart. No one is saying not to wear your favorite flannel by the way…

It wouldn’t be a real slip renaissance without wearing one for evening. It’s one of those styles that can actually stand alone without much hoopla in addition (albeit a warm coat to throw over your shoulders!). It’s ultra feminine without showing up in ruffles

One of the best parts about about the slip, is that it can actually function as a skirt! Seen here worn with a cropped sweater over, a tailored and pleated vest, and a pair of heels that both disappear and pop. For anyone scared of feeling like they might be too revealed, this is the look for you!

Dare to bare in a slip dress? You know we’re all dying to live out our Kate Moss and Johnny Depp movie premier fantasies… (is that just me?!?)  Well, I can dream…
