It’s classy, it’s silky soft, and it’s super cute…what is it? We bet you already know. Yup, a satin dress! This trend seems to only become more popular with time, and this summer it’s all the rage. Whether you’re going to a fancy dinner, brunch, or a simple stroll in the town, a satin dress is perfect for the occasion! Don’t know where to start or what you’re even looking for? No need to fret! That’s why we’ve done our research and provided you with nine stunning dresses – three minis, three midis, and three maxis.
Mini Satin Dress
Looking for a dress that’s short, flirty, and fun? Then these minis are for you! Add these to your collection for a summer picnic, date, or night out with friends.
No patterns or bold colors needed for this mini satin dress! The scrunched up material, abundance of ties, and cowl neck detail make for the most subtle yet playful satin dress of all time. The best part about this dress? It’s completely adjustable! Yup, that’s right. The strings on both sides of the dress can be tied up or let down as much as you’d like, giving you the option to range from a mini to even a maxi!
Three words: less is more. Yes, this dress pick may not seem like much, but it really is. On both sides of the dress are little slits, adding onto the flirty, fun personality of this piece. With a dress like this, you have the golden opportunity to go all out with your accessories! Chunky hoops, heels, everything. This is your chance to stand out!
Craving something classier? This satin mini dress means both business and pleasure. Whether you have a date somewhere fancier than usual, a casual business meeting, a party, or you simply just get cold when you go out, this gal will do anything you need it to! Its luxurious appearance will have you turning heads left and right. Basically, be prepared to get bombarded by people asking where you got it from!
Midi Satin Dress
Looking for a classy yet simple outfit option? This is the one! A midi dress like this allows you to look elegant while only wearing one sheet of simple fabric. Magic, right? Pair any of these dresses with strappy, chunky/skinny heels plus some chunky jewelry, and you’ll have a match made in heaven.
Show-stopping and so simple. If you’re looking for a dress suited for a more professional or serious occasion, this is a great pick for you. Midi length dresses in general are already associated with dressier events and attires, so combine that with silky satin fabric, and there’s no better possible combination! This particular midi satin dress is a little plain, giving you the opportunity to dress it up with accessories, including some of the mini satin dresses previously listed. If you like minimal style clothing with bold accessories, we’ve found your dress!
Rather than a simple, evenly cut plain satin dress, this midi has a cowl neck, side slit in one of the legs, and an asymmetrical cut at the bottom. The back of the dress also has a sort of cowl neck-like illusion, making this a perfect piece to wear with your hair to the side or even tied up. There’s no need to go overboard with accessories for this dress – this beautiful, asymmetrical midi dress speaks for itself!
A combination of both a midi and maxi, this satin dress provides a flirty mix between casual and dressy. The double strap detail really makes this satin dress stand out among the other possible contenders. Its other powerful details like the scrunched up side tie and open back make this dress so irresistible and necessary for your wardrobe this summer! Whether you want to show some skin for a date, be the star of the night for your birthday, get dressed for a night out with the girls, or any other cute plans you may have, this is a top notch option.
Maxi Satin Dress
Perfect for any fancier-than-usual occasion, these three maxi satin dresses are sure to do the trick! Each providing some kind of combination between business and pleasure, at least one of these options should take your breath away.
Practically resembling the iconic yellow dress from “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”, this stunning, silky, shiny maxi satin dress also has the perfect combination of features to make the room stop and stare. Our favorite feature of the dress, the thigh slit, makes the whole entire dress, taking it from being a mere sheet of fabric to being a jaw dropping piece!
Resembling more of the older versions of the satin trend, this flowy, floor-length satin gown is most commonly seen and used for balls, formals, dances, etc. However, with the resurgence of the satin dress trend, there are no more rules on how or where to wear this dress! If you’re a little stuck on where you could wear a dress like this, here are some ideas: this pick is perfect for any holiday parties, fancy office events, or for attending weddings too.
Who knew a maxi satin dress could be the most flattering type of clothing to highlight your figure? We did! This gorgeous maxi will make your waist look snatched, highlight your curves (or create some faux ones for you), and accentuate all your body’s best features. There’s virtually no reason not to pick this dress. Its elegant front and flirty back make it the perfect option for any formal event!
As we’ve now learned, simplicity is key with satin dresses. Hopefully, we can all agree by this point that satin is in – in all the time. This simple yet versatile fabric can make even the most boring or plain outfits stand out in any room! Whether you like lots of cutouts, extra details, or bold colors/prints, there is definitely a dress here for you.
