Satin Skirts Have Quietly Become One of 2020’s Favorite Trends

Some items of clothing effortlessly lend themselves to all body sizes and can be easily found in the offerings of most size-inclusive brands. (Here’s looking at you, stretchy skinny jeans and plain white tees.) But many others—especially trendy piece—are few and far between. It’s a common frustration, but one that’s definitely not new. Though the availability of trends in plus sizes continues to become greater, it’s still a small fraction of all the clothes out there. So, our aim at Unruly is to sift through all the bullshit and help you find trendy pieces—in this case, plus-size satin skirts—that are seemingly impossible to find.

Fortunately, plus-size satin skirts can be worn in any season with the right accompanying pieces. And they’re easier to style than you might think. Try pairing a satin skirt with an easy crop top and dad sneakers for an effortlessly cool street style look for summer. Or, give pattern mixing a whirl and pair a patterned satin skirt with a striped sweater when the temperatures are cooler. You can even use the satin skirt trend to finally wear that sleek vintage blouse you’re never sure how to style. Creating a perfect look (for any season) with a plus-size satin skirt is practically foolproof, so go ahead and have fun with it.

Of course, the first step to any satin skirt ensemble is actually purchasing said trend. And while we’ve made it pretty clear that there aren’t nearly as many satin skirts in plus sizes as there are in straight sizes, there are still plenty from which to choose and begin your satin skirt journey. From fall-ready animal print to summery neon satin skirts, you can try out this ’90s-inspired trend in so many different ways. And trust us—you’re going to want to.

Here at Unruly, we’re committed to featuring plus-size pieces we genuinely love and want to share with you. We’re connected to an affiliate revenue program, which means we might make a small commission when you buy products through our shopping guides. This in no way affects the pieces we choose to feature, and it never will. (Confused? We’d love to answer any questions you have about this. Email us at beunrulyinfo@gmail.com!)
