Spending the last year in oversized T-shirts and boxer shorts has not only turned us into homebodies but also, increased our expectations from our wardrobe. ‘No pain, no gain’ is not a mantra that we live by anymore. If we're stepping out, we want the comfort of a pyjama, the versatility of a white shirt, and the glamour of a red-carpet-worthy dress. In theory, it seems like a lot of pressure to apply on a single garment; however, your quest ends here. We have managed to find the holy grail outfit. Something that would ‘slip’ into all our above criteria - The Slip Dress. Traditionally categorised as nightwear, the slip dress seemed too good to stay within bedroom walls and slowly but surely found its way out of there into designer collections and even street style. 

The effortless and sophisticated style of this timeless piece is winning our vote, and also reigniting our love for '90s fashion. Whatever your plans may be, a slip dress can slip perfectly into them. Wear it over a T-shirt and pair it with sneakers for the perfect brunch look. If you want to make an entrance and indulge your inner rebel, layer it with a leather jacket. If a romantic evening is on your schedule, a slip dress is unarguably date night pick. Choose an eye-popping colour like Tamara Kalinic to stand out or wear neutral hues like Priyanka Chopra for a more classic look. Take cues from your Hailey Bieber who’s looking chic in her slip dress that she paired with Jordans, giving us major fashion goals. For a completely opposite vibe, look to Alia Bhatt. With just her little black slip dress in focus, she oozes glamour. The endless styling possibilities of a slip dress make it a wardrobe essential. It is designed to get you noticed without compromising on your comfort.
