    The slip dress has probably been on your to-buy list ever since nearly every runway show last season featured the '90s throwback. But, if you still haven't made the plunge yet, Chloé's latest collection might be your tipping point. Layered under all manner of longer-length sweaters, stiff tunics, oversized jackets, and very short skirts, the slips came in beautiful taupes and off-whites and featured some art-camp-style rickrack lining and geometric cutouts. Of course, the Chloé version won't drop until next fall, but if you need to get your paws on a proxy before then, similar-looking vintage slips are ubiquitous in proper thrift shops.

    Beyond these pieces, the rest of the collection nailed that enviable balance between casual but sophisticated, soft-feeling but hard-edged, and feminine but unfussy. We consistently look to Chloé to help us define what the current version of fashion's modern lady looks like, and judging from this fall showing, we're bound to be doing a quick round of slip-dress eBay browsing during our coffee breaks today. Click through to see eight outfits featuring these dresses, and gather your own ideas for how to slip into your new number this spring.
