If you're longing for the good old days (and who isn't?), the resurgence of the slip skirt will give you a quick dose of '90s nostalgia. Historically worn as négligées or as an underpinning for clingy skirts and dresses, the coquettish slip skirt has come out of hiding. Today, it's the main attraction, thanks to its figure-flattering silhouette that's subtly sexy but not scandalous. When styled right, the skirt is as welcome in the office as it is on a night out. Keep it straightforward with an all-over color, or skew girly, choosing a skirt dusted with flowers and polka dots. The slinky bottom is also the effortless dressing solution for warmer weather: Your legs, sheathed in bright colors, fun prints, and airy fabrics, will at long last see the sun. (Fair warning: you may need a healthy dose of self-tanner after a chilly winter and housebound spring spent swaddled in sweatpants.) Ahead, 11 versatile slip skirts to choose from.
