Slip dresses are, and forever will be, a closet staple. "Everyone should have a slip dress—they're an incredibly versatile addition for a hard working capsule wardrobe," SIR founders Nikki Campbell and Sophie Coote tell BAZAAR. Slip dresses are an opulent yet easygoing piece for day-to-day outfits, whether you're searching for a cool work dress or coordinating looks with your vacation swimwear. "Slip dresses are also the easiest thing to pack," adds Fleur du Mal founder and designer Jennifer Zuccarini. "I can easily fit three or four in a carry-on for all occasions."

With slip dress season around the corner, there's never been a better time to find a style that speaks to you. A low-key styling approach allows the best slip dress's materials and silhouette to really shine, from bold neon slips with square necklines to sequined and embellished variations. "A good slip dress can be worn on its own for an easy, polished look with minimal thought," Campbell and Coote say. They recommend a light jacket and a ballet flat for daytime; for an evening event, add a statement heel and a blazer. And when you're on the go? Zuccarrini says a silk bias slip dress's comfort and versatility make it a travel necessity. "I sometimes even wear one as my plane outfit with boots and a sweater or a hoodie on top," she says.
