Whilst satin is often thought of as a material worn during the night, its recent rise in popularity has meant that brands are coming out with pieces that can be worn both during day and night making satin dresses a great transitional piece and gives them more value for money.
Satin isn’t the usual pick when it comes to summer materials and textiles, but it’s a hot trend that will be sizzling throughout this season and we’ve picked the best ways to wear the satin dress. Meet your new summer wardrobe staple.
Satin on its own is of course already a beautiful a material with its glossy look and luxurious feeling, but having a dress with another texture can really help elevate your outfit and change it up. Lace particularly is great to show the contrast in textures with satin whilst keeping to the sexy and luxe look that satin has. The dress we’ve featured below is from the brand Never Fully Dressed has a unique design with the lace wrapping down the dress to make for more interesting detail, and chocolate brown colour adds to the richness of the dress. Check out Never Fully Dressed for more stylish satin dresses that are reasonably priced.

Ruching a fabric creates dimension and detail on a dress, there are more shadows created and the glossy shine of the satin glimmers more in contrast. The champagne dress we’ve chosen screams lavish with a tie shoulder detail and ties on the sides of the dress. Wear with gold strap heels and a diamanté choker for the ultimate luxurious and sexy look.

With an animal print
Printed satin is all the rage right now, nearly every fashion blogger has at least one perfectly candid shot of them donning an animal printed satin dress or skirt on their glamorous Instagram feed. Wearing an animal printed satin dress or skirt ticks two items off the trend list with the eccentric animal print and sexy satin.
The popularity of this trend means that styles are becoming more easily available and accessible with many brands bringing out their own pieces of it, this has a plus and a negative. The plus is that you’ll have so many more styles and price ranges to choose from but the drawback is in that you’ll be more likely to see another fashionista strutting the street in perhaps the exact same satin leopard print midi dress as you. Big no no.
The piece we’ve chosen isn’t necessarily a dress but a skirt and top co-ord which gives the illusion of a dress and allows you to mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe so you can experiment. It comes in a soft green colour with yellow leopard prints to make sure that you stand out.
With a slit
Having a slit on your dress will compliment the sultriness of the satin and will help you look like the embodiment of sexy by teasingly showing more skin. The attention is brought straight to your legs and means they don’t get completely hidden by the fabric which is especially good for midi length dresses. Slits also allow for more ease of movement so you don’t look stiff and can help you walk and move around more. Sexy and practical, need I say more?
The dress featured below is in a stunning rose colour with a cowl neck which is a great detail to add dimension to a dress and helps you look more elegant. Do beware, as the slit can come up quite high on the leg so make sure to check the sizing to avoid any fashion mishaps.
