“The rich emerald color of this slip is so amazing and its asymmetrical cut makes an otherwise simple piece actually feel quite on-trend.”

“There’s no hue too bright this year, and I love the ’90s-inspired neckline on this mini slip.”

“I like for a slip dress to have a bit of a relaxed fit so that I can layer something under it if I feel the need. This one is perfect, and I’d be happy to own it in every color.”

“As someone who tends to shy away from slip dresses, this seems to be calling my name. I love the gathered waist detail that makes it feel a little less body-hugging and a bit more flattering, and the choice of navy and white for polka dots (as opposed to black and white) gives the classic print a more current vibe.”

“Slip dresses are usually solid colors, but I love this fun mixed-print version at Urban Outfitters.”

“With a summer tan, this simple yellow dress is guaranteed to stand out.”

“The ruching on the side and high slit make this perfect for your next summer wedding and beyond.”

“This buttercream yellow slip dress is the perfect shade for spring and would look equally cool styled with strappy sandals or combat boots.”

“Call me crazy, but I’m kind of into zebra-print things right now. I love this easy slip from Zara for not only the price point, but the variety of ways I can style it—with white cowboy boots, a graphic T-shirt tied up at the waist, or with sultry strappy sandals for a night out.”
