Satin is a material that is often associated with pajamas and underwear, with the soft texture making it comfortable enough for bed time but also giving a sexy air to your night look. Satin slip dresses are a favorite of European and United States bloggers, and are not a miss on the cat walk, with Victoria Secret Angels taking to the stage every year in their iconic pink satin robes.
This season, designers are taking inspiration from the glamorous nighttime wardrobe of the VS Angels and are welcoming silk and satin to their collections. With draping designs and billowing cuts, the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Versace have made the satin dress their new wardrobe favorite. Every catwalk from Louis Vuitton, Prada, Nina Ricci, Victoria Beckham all the way through to Gucci have been using silk and satin in their spring designs. With slip dresses, shirts and suits, this style is elegant and glamorous, bringing you wardrobe a feminine new look.
Minimalistic style is big this season, with simple clothing being paired with fashionable accessories a real hit on the high street. A cute, satin dress is perfect for any body type, and can be paired with accessories to match your own style. If it is still too cold outside to wear alone, cover your dress with a long trench coat and pair with lace high heels. This look will naturally bring a sense of elegance to your wardrobe.
Many believe that silk is a difficult material to control, it creases easily and can snag on things such as zips or chairs. However, satin is a man-made alternative, that is tougher and harder to crease. A stain suit jacket can turn any outfit sexy, and pairing a satin boyfriend shirt with a pair of jeans or denim skirt is always an eye catching combination. Add a satin or silk item to your outfit and minimize on the accessories for the ultimate laid back look.
