When hunting for the best slip dresses, there is a handful of details to factor in. Not every slip dress is made equal, after all. In addition to the basic silhouette—a lustrous midi length, V-necked, thin-strapped dress—the staple can also feature cowl necks and bias cuts, mini to maxi lengths, and lace trim. Color-wise, the offerings run the gamut from traditional neutral silk satins to more vibrant hues.
The classic ’90s silhouette has timeless appeal and even greater versatility, whether you plan to use it as a foundational layer or wear it on its own. Plus, given the slip dress’s minimalist attitude, it can be dressed up or down for quite literally any occasion. Slip a sweater over the slinky dress for casual weekend wear or wear it on its own with the right jewelry to achieve a subtly sexy formal look. Simply choose your accessories accordingly; it’s just as easily styled with a full blowout and heels as it is with slide sandals and a raffia tote.
You’ll find signature black, ivory, and champagne options, as well as a handful of jewel-tone shades and brights in The Get’s edit of the best slip dresses. Shop them all below.
