(Today Corporette is starting a new series on something near and dear to every woman’s heart: lingerie. After all, every good outfit for the office starts with a great foundation.)
As the weather turns colder, I find that slips are an absolutely essential element to a number of outfits. Not only does it help prevent that fun “my tights are stuck to my skirt” moment, but the right slip can smooth out some bumps, or make a wrap dress “decent” no matter how you’re sitting. Below, I pick out some of my favorite types of slips…
Psst: As of 2022, some of our favorite foundational garments include this line of waist-shapers, these comfy shorts to prevent chafing while wearing skirts without hose, this full slip for wrap dresses and shirt dresses, this half-slip to prevent clinging, these pantyhose, and this bra.
|Sometimes, just a simple slip is all you want, and this nice one from Calvin Klein fits the bill. I like that it doesn’t have lace anywhere on it; the smooth fabric is great beneath jersey dresses (whereas lace can sometimes “show” beneath them), and the slight “mesh” at the top seems like it would be fine if your slip is doubling as a camisole. The lack of side slits in the skirt is also a plus from my perspective. This slip (also pictured in black above) is $48 at Freshpair. Solutions V-Neck Slip
|I like this Flexees convertible slip dress for when you want your slip to have a firming action — it can be worn strapless (as pictured) or with straps, and it gently compresses. While in the summertime I tend to prefer things like the Higher Power with Tummy Control shorts, I like these kinds of slips for the fall and winter because it’s much easier to wear regular tights or pantyhose. This slip is $55 (available in both black and nude). Firm Control Strapless Slip
|Another great thing about slips is that they can sometimes double as sleepwear — I actually have this slip in black, and it’s one of my favorite things to sleep in. (Something about the clingy top is both comfortable and flattering.) The double neckline is helpful, also — it’s a V-neck if worn one way, or a square neck if turned around. It’s $30 at Freshpair.
