The Nineties slip dress is having a revival. Whether you lived through the trend the first time or are styling it from scratch in 2016, here’s how to pull off this season’s slinkiest look

For instant supermodel status, look to the slip dress. Typically bias-cut with spaghetti straps, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell made it the silhouette to be snapped in, circa 1990. It's effortless, a little daring and very cool, plus it just so happens to be bang on trend for 2016. Now before you say, “I hate my arms, I could never wear that,” try slipping it on over a simple white T-shirt (choose black if you want to make it feel more party-ready). It's an easy styling trick that instantly adds confidence. Pair with a biker jacket and sturdy boots for day, swapping for strappy sandals and a blazer slung across the shoulders after dark.
