As I promised earlier to be back to you with another trend of the season and the ever so many ways to style it, here I am, and this time it's the gorgeous satin/silk slip skirts.

With the comeback of all the classic 90s pieces, how can we forget about the ever so stylish slip dress? Its modern version, the slip skirts gives the body a bold and alluring contour and for all the comfort in the world, there are satin and silk.

It might seem like they are hard to style but in reality, they are just like any other pair of your jeans. It gives an effortless feel that flatters every shape and size with the inherently slinky look.

I am sure, it will turn out to be one of your favourite investments this season. So stay tuned for some of the most luxe slip skirt outfits that you can use as inspirations.


Add Some Chic To Your Tee

Want to flaunt your classic white t-shirts in a new way? These slip skirts in the most amazing colours will take your style game to a whole new level. Wear them with either a cool chunky-ass sneakers or your favourite pair of heels, anything is sure to work with this look.

Or flaunt your edgy side with a graphic tee. you can even go for a vintage style band tee for the same.

The best part about slip skirts is that they come in all these amazing pastels to bold jewel colours. You can add some Vsco girl vibes to your outfit if you mix and match some fun colours into your outfit.

You can even throw on a jacket for a casual work outfit or a cosy cardigan or a denim jacket for those chilly mornings day outs. And if a fun night out is on your mind, throw on a funky faux leather jacket and you are good to go.

The Whimsical One

Satin is an amazing fabric. And if you go for a matching satin top with the slip skirts, the whole look gets a whimsical tough. Honestly, its the one with least efforts and obviously failproof.

The Comeback Of Victorian Grace

There are these puffy tops with square necklines that everybody is mad about these days. Wear these victorian blouses with slip skirts for a classy affair. Go for a vibrant colour or print when the top is plain white.

Can’t go Wrong With a Classic Shirt

Add some fun to your workwear to get you through the long week. Pair your slip skirts with the shirts. Go soft with a pastel skirt or bold with a jewel tone one. And if you're in the mood for some fun throw on some floral or animal print.

For a fancier twist tie the shirt in the front or wear it the off-shoulder way. You can throw an elegant jacket over this and Voila! your day to night outfit is ready!

From The Sheets To The Streets

Being a woman, I know there are days when you wake up and all you want is to celebrate yourself like you really are worth a world. That’s when you can totally go for an elegant bralette paired with your slip skirt. Put on some heels and you're ready to rule. A perfect outfit for sunny mornings, it can go for summery nights as well, just put on a light cardigan or jacket.

And if you’re looking to break the boundaries of fashion, you can even go for your favourite lacy bodysuits and camisoles for a fearless daytime outfit. You can just layer them over a classic shirt or tee or put on a jacket, for your own comfort.

Rock That Power Outfit

For a powerful OOTD ( outfit of the day) with a twist, pair a structured blazer or jacket with a slip skirt. To make this look a little more figure-flattering cinch your waist with a statement belt. And keeping in mind the utilitarian trend, replace that belt with a statement belt bag. You can either wear just the jacket on its own or go for a lace cami underneath.

If you want to try the next level of slip skirts try an asymmetric one that will add some interest to your work outfits.

It Has Become A Winter Staple

As it starts getting cold outside you can club your favourite slip skirt with a super cosy cardigan. If colour coordinating outfits is a big deal for you, then you totally need a slip skirt because it works best for the tone on tone outfits. Now you can say goodbye to decision fatigue. Just add a jacket over as the mercury dips.

Its the season of the cosy, chunky sweaters and slip skirts add just the right amount of chic to them. To prevent your legs from freezing, go for ankle boots, combat ones or just sneakers. you can add some snake printed boots if you're keeping the rest to solids.

Turtle necks or even mock necks give your body a nice slender & lean look with the slip skirts especially when you're wearing a tone-on-tone outfit. Add a belt bags if you want a comfy, laidback yet stylish look for the day.

Winters are also the time for oversized sweatshirts. I, for one, can not do without sweatshirts. And for days when you want your sweats to look a little more feminine, pair them with slip skirts. It is one of the coolest and easiest outfits to put together and get going. Wear it as tone-on-tone for subtlety or go complemenary if you want all the attention.

When Wearing printed skirts the only thing to keep in mind is to take one of the colours from the print and wear the top of the same colour for a more cohesive outfit.

As you have seen slip skirts can go from spring to summer and to winter very easily. Brighten up your winter wardrobe with vibrant jewel tones or play with lively pastels when it's summers, and go colour blocking or pair with neutrals to uplift your everyday looks. Just don't be afraid to experiment with different styles.

I will back with another trend that will be all over the season and how you can nail it with easy styling tips. Until then, stay stylish and keep expressing yourself.
