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.

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!
