If t-shirts, sweatpants and leggings have been your go-tos during these times, chances are you’re looking for a chic upgrade to ease you into the new normal. Enter the slip dress—an easy slip-on-and-go number that will help you look put together, no matter the occasion. What’s more, they can be layered with your favourite shirts and sweaters if you need something more work appropriate.
Slip dresses saw a more structured update in recent seasons—Gucci debuted a luxurious, sensual version that fused a wired bustier top with a velvet skirt for a look that is modest yet sultry, soft yet strong for pre-fall 2020; meanwhile, 3.1 Phillip Lim went the way of casual-cool by marrying a stiffer fabric with a tailored bustier and leather straps.
Whether you’re looking for more comfy numbers or alternative styles, here are the best slip dresses you’ll want in your wardrobe.
