I’m dreaming of dripping in a dress of champagne white this Christmas, with every party invite I RSVP ‘yes!’ too.
In a hybrid of sultry sheerness, paired with the fullness of the flow-y feel, the satin slip dress glides onto the figure in the time it takes to kiss the seal of a Christmas card – making every busy lady an effortless supermodel draped in glossy satin, and making you the jingle-bell beauty at every ball this season.
Call it a homage to the 80s, and see yourself as Scarface’s Elvira (Michelle Pfeiffer), as a secret slicked in silk, enough to cover up, though enough to shimmer beyond that Christmas starlight, with a vintage look that gives enough room to dance, as it does to deck the halls in elegance.
Styled too, by Selena Gomez, Hailey Baldwin (Bieber), and Rihanna to name a few, the spotlight shines upon the satin slip this festive season, so if you add this to your Christmas List, Santa may just slip it under your tree. But don’t doubt, whether you opt for this one in a midi, the longer skirt can naturally flatter the curve of your hips, ensuring you may not flash too much sparkle on the dance floor, though may just cling to the skin in all the right ways to give a little tipple of your figure. Or is the mini more your preference? In that case, let the satin slip move as you groove, drifting as you dance, spitting sparkle as much as the tree-topping star.
With a piece like this, choosing a metallic colour, maybe silver, maybe gold, can really spin Christmas spirit even if the average sparkle isn’t really your thing; styling you in an elegant epitome without seeming too loud in the sequins which always somehow end up all over the dance floor.
So be Santa’s baby this Christmas time and try out the satin slip, as I declare it a must-have for every angel this Christmastime.
