The One Throwback Trend You Need In Your Summer '19 Wardrobe

Style

If you haven't noticed by now, 90s fashion is here to stay. Cycling shorts and slip dresses are wardrobe staples and this spring we have seen the introduction of the slip skirt. Once an undergarment, the bias cut satin slip skirt is now a summer staple to add to your closet.


What I love about satin slip skirts, is how they are suitable for every occasion. You can style satin slip skirts with heeled mule sandals for brunch, or with sliders for a chill holiday look. On a regular day out, I'd style it with a t-shirt or racer back vest with chunky white trainers, or to dress it up I'd wear a bodysuit or crop top with strappy mid-heel sandals.

I'm personally enjoying the move away from doing everyday bodycon skirts to this looser, laid back but still-hugging-in-the-right-places look. So far I have a tiger print and black satin slip skirt and will be purchasing a hot pink one next. Please note to accommodate my thickness, I go for satin slip skirts with at least 2% elastane because everything needs to breathe.

This summer we are doing grown and sexy, and giving them 90s Joan Clayton, Carrie Bradshaw and Naomi Campbell vibes. For further inspiration, check out some of my favorite slip skirt looks from IG:

Uranus, the planet that many astrologers refer to as "The Great Awakener", recently settled into pleasure-seeking Taurus where it will remain until 2026.

As much as we'd prefer for change to be smooth and easy, Uranus has other ideas in mind that often result in shake-ups within our foundation that ultimately give way for something new to be defined.
