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 officially considered to be the main attraction in 2022. This is great news, considering the fact that I've been looking for a way to stop styling my favorite denim now that spring is finally here. Goodbye, uncomfortably stiff denim! Hello flowy, easy-to-style slip skirts. 

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 with your partner. Better yet, styling them is also super simple. Keep your ensemble straightforward with a skirt that comes in an single all-over color, or take a more classically feminine route in a spring skirt dusted with flower prints or polka dots. I would even go so far as to say that a classic, sleek black midi skirt is just as versatile in your closet as your usual pair of black office-approved pants. Some slips come with matching tops, but a basic white T-shirt, tank top, or button-down would also suffice if you're running late and need to get dressed in five minutes or less. 

Ahead, the Marie Claire editors rounded up 11 of the best (and most versatile!) slip skirts to choose from this spring. From splurge-worthy picks that come in neon hues to some more attainably priced pieces from Mango and ASOS, this list has it all.
