Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

Historically worn as négligées and as underpinnings for clingy skirts and dresses, the straightforward slip-style skirt is now the main attraction. Thanks to figure-flattering silhouettes that help achieve a pulled-together ensemble, slip skirts are as welcome in the office as they are on a night out. Keep it straightforward with an all-over color, or go girly in a skirt dusted with flowers and polka dots. Ahead, we've got 11 of our favorite versatile slip skirts to choose from.
