Spring/Summer 2016 saw a resurgence of 90’s era fashion- namely, the slip dress. This slinky favorite took a turn on all the major runways from New York to Paris, inciting fervor among those who lust after its seamless sensuality and freedom. While the slip, finished with optic sheen at Calvin Klein, lace trim at Celine, and gold detailing at Burberry, is synonymous with late night courtiers, don’t hesitate to whip it out in broad daylight. If you’re too timid to wear the body-skimming style solo, think of it as a versatile layering piece. Effortlessly throw on t-shirts and sweaters underneath any slip dress for a decidedly twenty-first century spin.

Who says pajamas are exclusive to the bedroom? This season, add a luxurious touch to your wardrobe rotation with silk robes, pants, and buttoned shirts. While Sonia Rykiel’s matching bird-print set and fur stole ensemble was a striking take on evening wear, Ricardo Tisci, who brought Paris all the way to Manhattan with a historic runway show for Givenchy, demonstrated the season’s most compelling examples of boudoir chic- voluminous, sultry, and effortless. Scared of being mistaken for a sleep walker? Take a cue from Alexander Wang and give this trend a rather gritty edge by pairing a classic pajama top with graphic stripes.
