It’s safe to say that this year slip dresses have taken the market by storm: The once-simple-and-sultry lingerie basic has now transformed itself into a major style staple. From the classic cowl-neck slip dresses favored by supermodels and celebrities in the ’90s for red-carpet appearances and nights out to the new and more stylish versions sported by international street-style stars, the classic slip has proven itself to be more versatile than you might think.
Their silky touch and loosely fitted shape allow them to be dressed up or down, while the wide variety of hems, necklines, colors, and prints to choose from gives wearers a day-to-night flexibility that keeps things effortlessly chic no matter where they’re headed. From weddings to job interviews and everything in between, shop 30 stylish slip dresses for every occasion.
The Wedding Guest
A silky jewel-toned slip dress has now become a wedding-guest staple. These styles have just the right amount of added detail when it comes to silhouette, making sure this simple silk dress carries a more elevated feel for formal occasions—whether due to one-shoulder or halter tops and asymmetric or floor-length hemlines.
Out of Office
Slip dresses are an essential item when it comes to packing for a vacation. Not only do they take up little to no room in a suitcase, the resort-ready piece can also be styled in multiple ways—a major plus when it comes to curating the limited items from your wardrobe you’re able to take with you. A slip looks just as chic while exploring beach towns as it does over a bikini at the beach itself, and when it’s time for dinner and dancing, these dresses can be evening appropriate in an instant; just swap casual sandals for a little heel or add a bit of lipstick. In vacation-ready tropical prints, tie-dyes, and warm neutrals, these slip dresses will be your new best (and vacation-ready) friend.
