See our picks for satin, silk, budget-friendly, plus-size and more.

Our favorite slip dresses

Best mini

This mini slip dress comes in 11 colors, and happy reviewers of all shapes and sizes have commented about how flattering it is. Your only dilemma will be whether to wear tights, leggings or go bare-legged.

  • Cost: $49
  • Sizing: XS to XL

Best borrowed-from-the-bedroom

This slip dress, by luxury lingerie design house La Perla, is almost too sexy for the streets. Pair it with a distressed denim or leather jacket to make it party-ready.

  • Cost: $245

If your style is more sporty chic than glam, go for this jersey slip dress. It's made of a stretchy nylon-Spandex blend and has a shelf bra so you can simply throw it on and go.

  • Cost: $139
  • Sizing: XS to L

If you're tentative to try this trend, get this one from Forever 21 for less than $20. It comes in five colors and features a flattering cowl neckline.

This glamorous slip dress would work for your red carpet debut. And it ties in another big trend for this summer — the open back.

Best plus-size maxi

It has a pretty lace insert at the chest and a slit that goes thigh-high.

  • Cost: $25

Best bias-cut

Dresses cut on the bias are designed to accentuate your curves as you move, since the fabric is cut at a 45 degree angle. This one from Anthro comes in eight colors, and you can see pics posted by people who've purchased it to get a better idea of how it might sit on your body.

  • Cost: From $118
  • Sizing: XXS to XL

Best midi

We love Aerie's midi slip dress because it's made of smooth and silky viscose and has an empire waistline for a bit of shaping.

  • Cost: $25 (on sale)
  • Sizing: XXS to XXL

Best boho

This super-soft slip dress has ruffles at the hem and lace around the chest for an irresistible bohemian effect.

How to style slip dresses

You'll style your slip dress differently depending on the occasion, since it can either be suuuuper sexy or cute and summery. Here are expert styling tips straight from our shopping team:

  • Date night. If it's a first date, try wrapping a silky scarf or kimono over your shoulders, loosening it to show a lil' more skin as you feel comfortable. For a date with a longtime partner, we advocate for maximum sex appeal — try a lacy bralette beneath the slip dress.
  • Lunch with the parents. A midi or long length might be best here, layered over a tight short-sleeve shirt or beneath an oversized tee. Espadrilles will add a dignified touch.
  • Single ladies around town. We're seeing clunky high heels and statement earrings. Add a bold lip and sparkles around your eyes … and remember to snap some pics.
  • Weekend errands. Layer your slip dress over a tank with wide straps, patterned tights and some sassy platform sneakers.
  • Zoom meetings. Throw on a cardigan or denim jacket, with a cute necklace or scarf.
