Satin is the new vel­vet. fact.

Satin has left the boudoir and is mak­ing its way to your wardrobe. It’s time to get slinky

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK - words: Max­ine eggen­berger @Max­fashed­i­tor

We’ve long har­boured grandiose vi­sions of waft­ing around in satin robes and feathered heels, just like old-school Hol­ly­wood pin-ups, but find­ing a time and a place to live out this sar­to­rial fan­tasy has never worked out in our favour. So we’ve rel­e­gated our party sea­son at­tire to se­quins and vel­vet, push­ing our satin dreams aside. How­ever, as it turns out, there’s strength in num­bers. Satin is up a colos­sal 2,830 per cent in Google searches in the last month alone, mean­ing you, the peo­ple, have sparked a shop­ping rev­o­lu­tion. Now, the high street’s filled with the slinky stuff and, as a re­sult, our sateen ob­ses­sion has gone well be­yond the con­fines of the slip dress. As if by magic, ev­ery­thing from midi skirts to Nye-wor­thy jump­suits has been given the slinky touch. And don’t even get us started on th­ese Zara heels… Like any true love, some trends are worth hold­ing out for.
