Worn as both under and outer wear, the popular dress slip has been a wardrobe staple for many decades - popping up in movie scenes, cat walks and red carpets. It's been styled a number of ways and worn by everyone from royalty, celebrities and super models to musicians and grungy teens.
We've gathered a few of our favourite famous and fabulous slip moments. Enjoy!

With the wedding season underway, we've received lots of good questions about Now or Never dress slips from our lovely customers —so here are a few tips about why we love slips and how you can choose the best one for your outfit.
Wearing a great slip simply makes you feel better dressed. It offers protection from coarse materials, creates opacity under a sheer garment, and achieves better draping and a better fit in outer wear.
Now or Never's range conceal and cover without bunching or being visible - and as we use natural silk fabric, they're cool and comfortable on a warm afternoon.
Our slips come in varying styles, cuts and lengths so when it comes to choosing the right slip for you, consider these factors:
- The colour and fabric of the dress you’ll be wearing - light / dark / sheer?
- The type of silk fabric you prefer - stretch or no stretch? Snug or loose fitting?
- The cut and length of the dress - a V neck, wrap?
