Satin midi skirts have always been a piece that can work for many different occasions—dinners downtown, birthday parties or just a fun night out with the girls. Wherever you’re going, regardless of what’s in your closet, this versatile skirt is fun to work with, and here’s how.
Outfit 1: big and bold
Here, I wanted the focus to be on the skirt, while also making the outfit a touch bold. I made my shirt prominent enough to complement the skirt, but subtle enough that it didn’t drown out the rest of the outfit. I found the lace bustier to be the perfect fit. Black is clean, sharp and can make a statement when worn correctly, but it’s not a color that screams for attention. I chose a pair of tall lace heels to complement the rest of the look.
Outfit 2: A bunch of detail
For this look, I no longer wanted to make the skirt the centerpiece, but instead, wished to add a lot of detail to the outfit. I added a black leather belt with a gold piece to marry the top and bottom. I wore a mesh top to add detail and a leather jacket because, as we all know, leather jackets make everything look better!
Outfit 3: simple but stylish
This outfit is for the days where you want to dress simply, while still wearing the skirt. I switched things up a bit by pairing the satin midi skirt with a white, graphic tee. I cuffed the sleeves to bring some edge to the fit and I decided to take a bit of a risk by wearing a brown mini bag. With this outfit, there’s a lot of room for creativity. Wear some white chucks to keep the edginess or some black heels as in the previous outfit. Wear a bold lipstick color or throw on some large hoops (as I always do). Whatever you decide to take from this fit, have fun.
