The satin skirt: 3 outfits, 3 styles

Fashion editors and the public officially declared: the satin skirt, the one similar to the vintage petticoats, is one of the stars of autumn 2019. Due to its versatility, there is no occasion when this skirt cannot be worn!

If you are just flirting with the idea of introducing these trends in your wardrobe, I propose three styling options for different times of the week. This way, the skirt you buy will have three times more chances to be constantly worn.

Keep it casual

For a quick wardrobe upgrade, opt for a colorful or printed pattern, instead of a classic, black one. A surprising splash of color helps a casual outfit look more interesting. For example, a regular T-shirt will look great with a satin skirt, in a pink, green or mustard yellow color. Add a pair of ultra-modern sneakers with thick soles, or some leather or canvas sneakers, plus a denim jacket that will keep you in a casual, relaxed urban style register.

Invitation to dinner

Are you going out to town tonight for dinner? You can be ready to go out the door in 5 minutes, if you choose a dark colored skirt and add other elements in the same color range: the tone-on-tone styling gives a note of elegance of your outfit. Add a top – fine sweater, shirt or body – and accessories close to the hue of the skirt. For example, a navy skirt and a dark green top create a special harmony, inspired by the colors of  precious stones. What matters is that the surfaces and textures of the two pieces are different (in other words, do not match a satin skirt with a satin material or a glossy surface).

Dress code: office

Matched to a classic jacket in men’s plaid, the satin skirt will be the pillar of an outfit that will turn heads, but still has a professional look. For this, it is necessary to follow some requirements. First of all, the satin skirt should be light, not moulded to the shapes of your figure. Second, the jewellery and accessories you add will be modern and of good quality (a pair of designer earrings, a silk scarf, a special leather bag). Finally, the shoes – classic shoes with fine heels or moccasins with medium and thick heels are the best options; otherwise, the outfit loses its professional air.
