Slip dresses have stood the test of time and solidified themselves as true timeless wardrobe staples. While the trendiness of slip dresses ebbs and flows like the fashion cycle itself, for fall 2022, there isn’t a more on-trend piece than the slip dress—just one part of the elevated basics renaissance that is front and center in the F/W 22 collections.
While we’re seeing many brands reintroduce classic silhouettes designed from silky satin, there are also many updates to the dresses worth noting for fall. Despite being a closet basic, one of the interesting things about the dresses is how not basic many of them are. From heavily ornamented styles with sequins and embellishments at Bottega Veneta to completely sheer pastel pieces with exposed lingerie at Fendi to dramatic floor-sweeping designs at Saint Laurent. Ahead, more on the slip dress trend that will define fall fashion.
