Slip dresses are stunningly minimalist. They’re the ideal choice for the bride who wants a fresh, clean, and pared-down look. However, just because a white slip dress is sleek and simple doesn’t mean it has to be unadorned. The traditional slip dress has a loose silhouette and spaghetti straps, but there are numerous opportunities for embellishment.
Brides can choose a plunging neckline, lace trim, or all-over beading. Perhaps the best part about a slip dress is the enhanced functionality. They can go from aisle to afterparty seamlessly! If your heart is set on a slip dress, we’ve got the perfect list, encompassing every type of bride and budget.

Styling A Slip Dress
A slip dress offers a flawless canvas on which to show your personality through accessories, shoes, and even your hairstyle. Because the look is so sleek and minimalist, you can afford to go a little bolder with your styling choices. Alternatively, a bride can opt to keep her entire look elegant and unadorned, which naturally complements the characteristics of the slip dress. Talk about versatility!
The options are nearly endless! Try a bold statement necklace or a fun veil headpiece. Or, abide by the less is more rule and don a classic pair of studs or an elegant hair chain. Indeed, almost anything goes with a slip dress.
Slip dresses can work very well for the casual or boho bride who chooses to wear illusion sandals or no shoes. However, chic heels, strappy sandals that mirror the spaghetti straps of the dress, or even flats can all pair beautifully with a slip dress.
While there are many options for hair, shoes, and accessories that suit a slip dress, undergarments are a bit more limited. Because most slip dresses are silky and slinky, you’ll want to ensure your undergarments help your silhouette look smooth and free of seams. We recommend a bodysuit, a mini slip, or a control short for a seamless slip dress look.
21 White Slip Dresses
1. Cami Gown
by Nili Lotan
We adore this chic, straightforward, and exquisite gown.
2. LILOU DRESS
by Galia Lahav
It’s the little details that make this diaphanous silk gown special.
Double cross-over spaghetti straps add interest to the traditional sleek top. At the same time, the super low cut back offers a touch of allure. Diagonal seaming on the front sets this dress apart from its straightforward competitors.
by Jenny Yoo
If a modern, clean silhouette married Old Hollywood Glamor, this dress would be the result.
4. Le Lune Lace Back Maxi Dress
Brides who want a dash of drama will love this lace-up gown.
It has all the features of a classic slip dress from the front, including delicate straps and body-skimming silk. The intricate ties cross and lace, forming a lovely pattern in the back, perfect for a beach bride!
5. Meredith with sleeves
by Jenny Yoo
This dress truly is the best of both worlds.
The simplicity of a slip dress combined with some of the structure of a traditional gown. A gently sloping cowl neckline is complemented by beautifully draped sleeves. A form-fitting bodice, created by architecturally placed seams, pairs wonderfully with the flair of the skirt. And did we mention the buttons down the back?
6. Watters Mirrall Gown
Casually chic with a touch of unexpected drama.
7. The Nene Slip Dress
by MM LaFleur
If easy to wear is what you desire, this dress is a must.
A flattering bias cut, adjustable straps, and a diagonal seam allow this gown to flatter all body types. Silk charmeuse is undeniably elegant yet so comfortable you’ll never want to take this dress off!
by Jenny Yoo
Slip dresses are certainly sultry, but modest brides shouldn’t be put off.
This sleeved slip dress is the perfect example of why. Dainty cap sleeves provide a touch of security in contrast to the décolletage-bearing neckline. The keyhole back allows just the right amount of skin to be shown.
9. Tullamore Dress
An instant classic, we’re head over heels for this Reformation gown.
10. All Saints Hadley Cowl Slip Dress
Edgy brides can rock a slip dress too!
This gown’s shorter length is excellent for showing off your converse or Doc Martens. Its pullover style and slip design are casually chic. Throw in a soft cowl for a bit of femininity, and you have the perfect modern, mini-slip dress.
11. Tea Length Seamless Slip
by Free People
There isn’t anything we don’t love about this gown.
by Jenny Yoo
A classic slip dress, elevated.
This dress has all the right features for brides who want a more traditional look. It has lots of classic bridal characteristics, from the illusion detailing on the low open back to the covered buttons and the flowing train. We especially enjoy how the 4-ply silk and crepe still appear like a slip dress while giving brides a bit more structure and coverage.
13. Vienna Dress
Pull-on this dress, and you’ll feel as if you’re enrobed in liquid silk.
Its tea length is ideal for an intimate ceremony at the courthouse or a seaside affair. Unique spaghetti straps arranged in a halter design tie are secured low in the back, adding lovely ruched detailing.
by Jenny Yoo
Effortless elegance is what this modern slip provides.
15. Jonathan Simkhai Satin Cowl Neck Gown
A vision in a column of silk!
16. Forever Type of Love White Satin Sleeveless Mermaid Maxi Dress
This is a beautiful minimal mermaid wedding gown.
by Jenny Yoo
We’re getting major 90s vibes, and we love it!
Tiny spaghetti straps, a straight neckline, and a slinky short skirt? Yes, please! This trend has returned, which is no surprise because it provides the perfect fit without numerous, painstaking fittings.
18. Tuscany Maxi Slip Dress
This is a gown Carolyn Bessette would be jealous of.
It’s an iconic slip dress silhouette, from the cowl neckline to the flattering drape of the skirt. Modern upgrades like a built-in shelf bra lining and criss-cross straps keep you comfortable and secure all day (and night) long.
19. Retrofit Katya Draped Slip Dress
Look perfectly polished while keeping it casual.
by Jenny Yoo
Make an eye-catching entrance and exit!
We’re obsessed with the soft, body-skimming satin that forms this dress. The pleated tapered straps that are a bit wider than usual are a lovely touch. After you say your vows and seal them with a kiss, guests will be treated to the low scoop illusion back covered in a delicate beaded floral applique.
21. Reyna Maxi Dress
Whether you want a stunning gown for your wedding day or your bachelorette party, this dress fits the bill.
Slip Into Your Perfect Wedding Dress
Trendy and timeless, we can’t envision the slip dress “slipping” from favor anytime soon. These gowns are an effortless wedding day choice because of their easy elegance and a relaxed fit that’s a breeze for brides to wear. In our eyes, spaghetti straps, a simple silhouette, and some radiant silk or satin form the ideal minimalist gown!
