For a self-assured slay on all things fabric this season, satin seems to be at the forefront of must-haves. Effortlessly making its mark, the high-shine fibre continues to redefine conventional fashion pieces in ultra-sleek ways. From satin summer dresses to midi skirts that could be incorporated into Fall / Autumn looks, the glossy material is back on the rise!
With a delicate yet fibrous appearance, satin ensembles stand out with an ease that is hard to ignore. The fabric’s versatile nature allows for a fusion of both street style and high fashion elements. So, whether you’re a ranking member of the crème de la crème who only sleeps on satin pillowcases or a middle-class fashionista in pursuit of hot trends, you’ll find a fashion staple to love within the satin trend.
While giving off Carrie Bradshaw vibes from the fashion film favorite Sex and the City, satin pieces have a way of breezing through summer into the early parts of Fall / Autumn. They are flexible enough to take you from day to night, fitting into formal and casual settings with a chic and seamless ease. In other words, the polished fabric can easily add a fierce touch to your day to day wardrobe no matter the occasion.
Here are 3 tips on owning the style scene in satin
#1. Color palettes and prints
When it comes to wearing satin pieces, no color is left behind. Bold, neutral and pastel colors gleam perfectly and are only limited by occasion. Prints like florals and animal patterns also exist for when you want to give off a fun and alluring vibe.
#2. Outfit choices
Picking out the appropriate ensemble items to wear in satin fabrics requires a level of intentionality. If you’re going for a relaxed look, jumpsuits and co-ord sets fit the tone. For a casual or androgynous look, oversized satin shirts and wide-leg pants set the bar, while satin tops and dresses are perfect for a sophisticated or fancy look.
#3. Elevate with accessories
To put the finishing touches on a full satin attire, choosing the ideal accessories adds a unique feel to the glistening fabric. Thankfully, abstract and contemporary jewelry items like layered chains and bracelets easily add the exact amount of je ne sai quoi needed. Ultimately, when it comes to accessorizing satin outfits, less jewelry is truly more as the fabric already comes with enough shine.
Monochrome enthusiasts have the option of pairing their outfits with matching satin headbands or neck scarves.
If you’re looking for a chic and luxurious fabric to upgrade your wardrobe, or just in need of glossy street style inspiration, we’ve got you covered.
