I don’t know about you but every season I get caught up in a color that I love and I’ll buy everything in that color.

From flannel shirts down to the plastic tattoo choker, the reemergence of the decade is here to stay a while. One piece that you’re likely to see every designer take their spin on next spring is the slip dress. Kate Moss was one of the faces of the slip dress in the 90’s but Rihanna has been wearing them all around town this fall, dressing the silhouette up or down.

Here are a few ideas to help you pull it off below.
