8 Wedding Slip Dresses that Are Anything But Boring

By Kellee Khalil, Lover.ly

Sexy, slinky slip dresses first hit the scene in the 1920s, a trend embraced by flappers and prohibition-era gals wishing to shed their layers of fabric and undergarments in defiant protest. They resurfaced in the 90s, with actresses showing off their figures on the red carpet in simple and elegant sheaths. And what's old is new again! The new slip dresses are still a no-fuss way to show off your curves, but these are no boring frocks -- featuring details like dainty embellishments, breathtaking backs and elegant sleeves, they still pack as much personality as an intricate ball gown. Here are eight ways to get this sexy bridal look on your big day.
