The details

The slip dress has come a long way since the underwear-as-outwear trend in the 1990s, as popularized by celebrities like Kate Moss. Now, they're considered a wardrobe staple — an item that everyone can wear, no matter your taste or style.

The BP. Tie Back Midi Slipdress (shop it in Canada here, shop it in the U.S. here) is available in sizes XX-Small to X-Large. This adorable number features a pale coral floral design and a line of buttons down the front, and is styled with slinky straps and a scoop neck.

How to style it

Trust us—this item is so much more than just a dress. The beauty of the slip dress is in its layering qualities.

Made from lightweight material, you can throw a T-shirt, blouse or sweater overtop to give the illusion you're wearing separates. For a truly '90s look — or if you just prefer being more covered-up — throw on a T-shirt or long-sleeve shirt underneath the dress.

You can take this dress from day to nighttime with ease, too. Pair it with sneakers or flats for a casual daytime vibe, or dress it up with heels for a summertime wedding. Feeling edgier? Break out your grungiest leather jacket and black chunky boots for the perfect outfit for drinks and live music.

It makes the perfect dress to travel with. The lightweight, quick-drying material makes it super easy to wash, dry, fold up and pack to hit the open road, while the print is neutral enough to go with anything.

Final verdict

For the past couple years, we've been stuck inside with very few opportunities to go out and get dressed up. If you're feeling frustrated with your current wardrobe, adding in a versatile item like the BP. Tie Back Midi Slipdress is a great way to re-energize your clothing collection and get excited about getting dressed again. Part of that means having fun with your clothes, but taking out the hair-pulling guesswork — which is exactly what the slip dress promises. The possibilities are endless!
