Call us basic (please don't call us basic, we're very sensitive) but the GTT Gals are major fans of a bit of satin. Whether it's a satin dress or a top, we find it hard to say no to this style staple. But if there's one thing we could never turn down, it's a good old satin midi skirt! This is our favourite ways to flaunt our curves, without actually looking like we're trying to. There's nothing like a satin midi skirt to give us that steamlined silhouette! This style can often be seen as more of a winter trend rather than summer (who started this rumour? We just want to talk!) but trust us, there are so many tried and true ways of brightening up a satin slip skirt to make it the perfect summer essential!
Pairing this style with an oversized t-shirt is the perfect way to add a relaxed feel to this style. Not only does it maintain the flattering effects of the satin skirt, as the t-shirt being tucked into the skirt will never fail to enhance the waist, but this automatically adds a relaxed, street style ready feel to a piece that's usually fairly formal!
Satin midi skirts are perfect for the office when you want to freshen up your work wardrobe a little bit! Everybody has a white button down shirt in their wardrobe, and pairing this with your slip skirt is the ideal way to make your co-workers green with envy! Something as simple as the shirt being tied at the waistline will also create a flattering hourglass silhouette to really finish off the outfit. And the best part? The lightweight fabric of the skirt hangs from the hips without feeling too figure hugging, making it totally appropriate for the office!
Another fool proof way of adding a more summery feel to this skirt would be to incorporate a pop of colour. This is super easy to do with this skirt from Ivy Lane as the black colour famously goes with absolutely everything, meaning that your colour options are practically unlimited! This abstract print top would be ideal, simply pair with some bright heels and a bag to match and you're good to go!
THIS JUST IN: You can look just as fab rocking a slip skirt on your holidays! We're major lovers of this style with a shorter white top to really show off that tan you've been working so hard on! The knit fabric of this sleeveless top is super lightweight, while the contrast between the knit and satin really adds an element of interest to the outfit. Not only this, but the fitted style of the top paired with the fitted skirt really adds a streamlined feel to this look that we're OBSESSED with!
Every year when the warmer months start hitting us, you're guaranteed that the GTT Team will resume our yearly tradition of shouting about our love of denim jackets from the rooftops...but can you really blame us? For years this has been our go to way of adding an extra layer just in case the weather does a little 180 turn to keep us on our toes, and has been one of our favourite ways of adding a more relaxed day-to-day feel to our favourite dresses. So of course we had to introduce our good old reliable denim jacket to our new favourite satin slip skirts! And let me tell you...it works! Pairing our skirts with this style staple and a pair of trainers is the perfect way to add a more casual feel to this outfit!
