Effortlessly Cool Ways to Wear Your Favorite Slip Skirts This Season

In case you missed it, the ’90s slip skirt trend is back—and better than ever before. As brands and designers continue to offer this throwback style in droves, we all continue to buy them over and over again. It’s hard to resist! Satin slip skirts are just as versatile as any other style of skirt, but they have a cool, vintage flair that simply outpaces the rest. Of course, once you’ve collected a boatload of the trend, you have to figure out how to style them all. Thankfully, plus-size satin skirt outfit ideas are ridiculously easy to create—all you need is your favorite slip skirt and a little inspiration.

You’ve likely seen the over-worn (but cute nonetheless) leopard midi skirt and sneakers combination on some form of social media in the last year. Frankly, it’s a great introduction to the world of satin slip skirts. Sure, the look might have run its course after nearly every person in New York City wore the ensemble for an entire season, but it can also be considered the OG slip skirt outfit recipe. A midi skirt and sneakers is a timeless look—and the same street style vibe can be transferred to all your favorite satin skirts.

We’ll start with the obvious: a slip skirt, graphic tee, and sneakers. It’s a go-to look that works for just about any season. If you prefer heels or booties, feel free to switch it up. And while you’re at it, change out the graphic tee for a mockneck sweater or cropped cardigan. Just by trying different tops and shoes with your favorite slip skirts, you’ll find that the number of outfits you can create is infinite. There is absolutely no limit—so feel free to get a little creative.

Of course, if you’re in need of a little inspiration, we’ve got your back. Below, you’ll find several plus-size satin skirt outfit ideas you can easily recreate with items in your closet—or shop the exact looks we’ve created. Whether you’re looking for a new way to spice up your date night ‘fits or just want a few outfit options for your Instagram feed, the ensembles below are total game-changers. Your slip skirts are about to get a lot of wear, folks.
