How Did We Ever Part With The '90s Slip Dress?

The nineties are having yet another moment. And, we're certain our nostalgia for the decade is going nowhere fast. This season's most popular trends — pared-down minimalism, sports-infused clothing, and grungy slip dresses — are just a few of our favorite styles reprising their well-deserved moment in the spotlight. Quite honestly, we're not sure why they went away in the first place.
Clearly, Helmut Lang, Alexander Wang, and rag & bone agree. Thanks to these designers (and others), a spaghetti-strap number is the way to spring-style domination. Worn alone or layered under an oversized sweater, this elegant look doesn't require much effort. For a grungy vibe, accent with loafers. Or, exude easy glamour with single-strap heels. Simply throw them on and go: The nine slip dresses ahead are all you need to channel '90s-era Gwyneth, Julia, and Winona — and recreate the looks of today's fashion darlings, like Elle Fanning, too. Listen to this track as you click through the slideshow, and you're guaranteed to reach instant nirvana.
