How To Wear A Satin Slip Skirt In Summer

When I die, bury me in a slip skirt.

The skirt trend that just won't quit...

When I scroll through my 'saved' section on Instagram there are a disproportionate amount of cute dog pictures, pop culture memes, makeup looks that, realistically, I'll never actually be able to achieve and satin midi skirts. 

Already a few seasons deep, but with no intention of fading back out - the latter has surpassed trend status and has become a wardrobe staple. First emerging last Autumn, the satin midi skirt was the perfect accompaniment to cardigans, chunky knits and roll necks. 

However, as seasons change and temperatures begin to ever so slowly rise, the perils of styling a delicate garment like a satin midi skirt knows no bounds. 

Flattering, lightweight and incredibly comfortable, a satin midi skirt holds all the power of summer dressing so why is it I'm finding the skirt that got my legs through winter so problematic? 

Unsurprisingly, the issue isn't with this butter-soft one-and-done silhouette, it's with me and my failure to understand how to dress for warm weather. I like layers. 

When faced with any issue whether it be big or small, I take to Instagram to solve distract from it. Yet on this occasion, my mindlessly scrolling and double tapping actually solved my satin slip styling woes - not just once, but eight times.
