A beautiful slip is classic. Think Elizabeth Taylor in Butterfield 8 or Marilyn Monroe in general. But should you have to go for the same lace getup that every other woman owns? We think not.
We uncovered some sexy slips from our favorite smaller brands to give you inspiration for upping your look from sweatpants queen to sex kitten — whether it’s for your partner or just for yourself.
Farr West Vintage
Simple and vintage-inspired, a bias-cut, anti-cling slip is a must-own. This particular brand has been around since 1968. And we love the cleverly named color: mink. (farrwest.com, $63)
Need a little help sculpting that hourglass figure? This pretty shapewear, with its contouring bands, will give you a sleek silhouette and a comely look. (resultwearshop.com, $169)
Technically shorts rather than a slip in the traditional sense of the word, this silk romper combines the sweet look of lace with a dash of hipster chic — in a neutral shade that flatters everyone. (amperenyc.com, $145)
Luna Short Slip
Not cheap, but so beautiful, especially in eye-popping fuchsia — and the come-hither thigh split makes the piece all the sexier. A great incentive if you’re looking to reward yourself for meeting a major personal goal. (agentprovocateur.com, $350)
Sandmaiden Sleepwear Bon Bon Bamboo Chemise
Cheeky triangular cups, adorable rosettes around the hemline and a soft bamboo material ideal for either seducing your target or lounging around on a Saturday afternoon (or both). (etsy.com, $78)
Sometimes you’ve gotta show off your girly side, and this sweet pink-and-blush slip gets the job done without being too sugary. Lined cups offer a little bit of oomph too. (journelle.com, $76)
