Satin pieces are a big trend this fall and your girls from The Long & Short of Style are slip sliding into this sultry trend! Whether it be a top, dress, skirt or pants, you`ll be seeing a lot of satin this season so check out some ways you too can sashay into satin this fall.
Gail’s Satin Story!
I’m slippin into satin this season with excitement. There are all kinds of satin looks out there and I decided to give this trend a test run with the gorgeous rust coloured blouse.
I love the bat-wing sleeves with exaggerated cuffs and the slight off the shoulder feeling as well. I got my blouse in a size 4X as I wanted it to be extra slouchy.
I then paired the silkiness of the blouse with faux leather pants in a deep chocolate brown colour…perfect for the fall season. I got these beauties from Pretty Little Thing in size 22 which are slight big but again, I was going for a less form fitting look. These pants have tons of stretch so I recommend going down a size if you looking for a more fitted look.
The final touch was adding a little print in the form of these leopard print pumps.
Leslie’s Satin Sensation!
Despite the decline in temperatures, the season is sizzling with the sensual, smooth feel of satin.
I was more than happy to slip into this trend for fall, and I just had to reach for this satin slip dress from one of my faves: Zara! The colour is vibrant and striking, and I can wear it in so many ways (might have to do a post on that!)
The fit of this dress is fantastic! As it has a belt, I can cinch my waist and ensure I have that hourglass shape! I`m also obsessed with midi length dresses and skirts so there`s no surprise that this dress was a winner for me!
Pairing my satin dress with this purple patent leather coat was a must! The coat creates the perfect foil with which to show off this dress! The colour contrast was just poppin`!
When the weather really decides to get disrespectful, you will definitely see me rockin gthis dress with a chunky sweater or blazer and some booties and I`ll be sitting pretty (and warm) this season!
And that’s the long & short of it!
