If you don’t know how to style a satin skirt, then you might be unsure about purchasing one. Not to worry, styling satin isn’t difficult, and with a little experimentation, you can create a perfect look. Satin is an ever-popular fabric choice because the material feels luxurious against your skin, and can add a touch of elegance or sophistication to any outfit. With the variety of colors, patterns, shapes, and designs available, you can discover multiple ways to style a satin skirt.
When styling a satin skirt, you want to look at the overall silhouette you are creating. You can achieve a figure-enhancing outfit by pairing satin with the right top, shoes, and accessories. The idea is to create a well-balanced shape. Try pairing a flowing or ruffled satin skirt, with a narrow blouse, or a tight skirt with a looser shirt. The length of your satin skirt is going to partially dictate your choice of accessories. If you’re wearing a floor length skirt, try wearing dangling drop earrings, a scarf, or a hat to even out the look. Avoid pairing a knee-length satin skirt with colorful stockings, or knee-high boots that will also attract attention, and create too much clutter. Instead, opt for sheer stockings, and ankle-length boots, or pumps. If you wear a satin micro-mini, you can get away with knee-high boots or tights, or you can stick with basic pumps, which will elongate your legs. When wearing a mini, you should also avoid long shirts, tuck them in or opt for cropped an abbreviated or cropped style.
Texture & Color
Satin is a soft, silky material, with a touch of shimmer. By pairing it with fabrics that have different texture and sheen you can create an elegant contrast that is aesthetically appealing. If you select a pleated or ruffled style, try pairing it with a simple, unadorned top, like a single-colored V-neck or scoop neck. Look for a thin or sheer material to offset the thickness of the skirt. If you choose a pencil style skirt, you could pair it with a more ornate top that incorporates ruffles, buttons, or lace. You should also select a shirt color that blends well with skirt. If you wear a multi-colored skirt, a single-color top works best. Avoid selecting a similar color, and instead opt for a matching shade or an entirely different color.
When wearing satin to a particular event, style your skirt for the occasion. Fabrics like satin are naturally eye-catching, so they are more easily dressed up than down. You can create a casual, yet sophisticated look by accenting a simple knee-length satin skirt with basic accessories in neutral colors, or wearing a cardigan sweater, or scarf. You could also opt for a patterned skirt, soft hues, or a skirt trimmed with lace. For a nighttime affair you can select a clean, elegant aesthetic, or a dramatic look. Black or white satin is usually best when creating either look. An elegant top in a soft or jewel toned color, and gold, silver, or pearls will create a clean look. For a dramatic style, try wearing your satin skirt with a dressy top with a deep neckline, sparkling jewelry, stilettos, and a trendy handbag.
