How to wear a slip dress

Arguably the most versatile piece in a woman’s wardrobe, the slip dress is a true icon. Hitting peak popularity in the ‘90s, its appeal never really went away and it is now back in the spotlight as luxe lounge wear takes centre stage in 2020 — especially for those seeking a minimalist, capsule wardrobe with investment pieces that will stand the test of time and eschew mere trends.

How to wear a slip dress

Arguably the most versatile piece in a woman’s wardrobe, the slip dress is a true icon. Hitting peak popularity in the ‘90s, its appeal never really went away and it is now back in the spotlight as luxe lounge wear takes centre stage in 2020 — especially for those seeking a minimalist, capsule wardrobe with investment pieces that will stand the test of time and eschew mere trends.

Originally popularised by the likes of Kate Moss, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Anniston and Princess Diana, the slip dress still has an army of devoted celebrity fans. Over the past few years, Galvan slip dresses have graced the red carpet and glossy pages thanks to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Margot Robbie, Leomie Anderson, Caroline Winberg, Arizona Muse, Penelope Cruz, Martha Hunt, Jennifer Lawrence and Karlie Kloss, to name but a few.

Of course it is easy for a coterie of supermodels and A-list actresses to look good in them, but what about the rest of us? Well we think it is all about the attitude: the slip dress needs to be effortless and cool, which means you need to feel comfortable and confident wearing it, and dress it up or down depending on your mood, without over accessorising it.

The beauty of the slip dress is that it goes with everything. Dress it down with a chunky cashmere knit and vegan sneakers or studded ankle boots. Or dress it up with an embellished heel and an evening blazer. Maybe the only accessory it needs is a bold red lip! Wear a trusted black slip for the ultimate LBD look, or wear a hot fuchsia or jungle green slip for a summer wedding.

Many loyal Galvan fans have also worn our slip dresses throughout their pregnancies — what better way to show off your precious bump than highlighting in in stretch satin, as Millie MacIntosh did when she announced the arrival of her baby girl to the world?

Our best-selling slip dresses include the V neck and Valletta styles, one with skinny straps and the other with wide straps, to suit every neckline. Cut on the bias, and available in cropped and full lengths, as well as a variety of colours — from classic black to bridal platinum, bold red to neutral peach, and even our latest arrival tie-dye in burnt sunset orange or luminous sage — there truly is a slip dress for every one.
