3 Ways to Style: The Satin Slip Skirt


Fashion fell back in love with the 90s silk slip silhouette last summer and it seems the trend is here to stay. The nineties revival began with a renewed love of the slinky slip dress made famous by designer Calvin Klein and made legendary by the supermodel Kate Moss. This season, the slinky slip dress silhouette has evolved into a global obsession with the bias cut silk skirt. Both designer and high street brands alike have adopted the silk slip trend making it a SS19 essential. The slinky staple is not just sartorially sound but incredibly versatile as well, making it the perfect trend piece to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. The fluidity of the Louche Tehani Satin skirt balances so well with oversized items and more structured pieces. The Louche Tehani – like any slinky slip skirt – can easily take you from day to night if you’re savvy with your styling. Let us show you how it’s done.

LEOPARD LIVIN'

At Joy, we love playing with print and colour – especially for daytime styling. The silky style of the Louche Tehani makes it a great halfway house for smart casual looks that have a quirky touch. Pair your Tehani with the leopard print Brave Soul Stoney blouse for a fashion forward ensemble. Two trends in one?! This outfit is already winning. Leopard print and pink are a match made in heaven and balance the lingerie inspired bias cut design perfectly. The satin skirt is styled minimally time and time again so why not mix it up a bit? Playing with colour and pattern is not only fun but radiates an I-know-exactly-what-I’m-doing conviction that only the best outfits have. To complete this sleepwear as streetwear ensemble, style with your chunkiest trainer, a bright red lip and the pink Louche Stephani Banana Leaf earrings.

SUBVERTED SLOGAN

The oversized jumper and skirt trend is nothing new. The classic combination has been a fashion favourite for years but has definitely gained vigour due to 90’s slip skirt revival. The oversized knit and skirt combo is ideal for the unpredictable British Spring weather we know and love. Pair the sleek Tehani satin skirt with its’ polar opposite – a slogan sweater. The epitome of smart casual styling, the Tehani and the Louche Jan En Vacances couldn’t be more different but somehow the combo works. The exact fashion formula is still a mystery to us but what we know for sure is that contrasting silhouettes almost always looks fab. Plus, it can’t hurt to try right? The pop of colour of the ‘En Vacances’ slogan compliments the blush pink of the Tehani skirt and adds a touch of playfulness. Wear the new Louche Lash Abstract Print as a square head scarf and slip on your fave pair of mules for an arty off duty vibe.

TEHANI OF THE NIGHT

Sometimes you just want to get really dressed up. Forget smart casual. We want smart, smart! We’re talking platform heels, feather boa and fake lashes galore! For those days when you want to look fancier than fancy the Tehani satin skirt is your bff. Showcase the skirt’s sleek silhouette with a pair of 90s inspired square toe kitten heels to elongate the leg. For an evening look we want to amp up the uber femininity of the slip skirt rather than tone it down, so a delicate black camisole is perfect. The contrasting black and pink tones add essential drama but the minimal cuts of both pieces keep the look effortlessly chic. Pair this evening look with the Louche Dexter drop earrings for a mixed metal moment and opt for a bold lip to own your powerful femininity.



If there is one throwback that has staying power, it’s the 90s slip skirt. It may even transcend its trend status at this rate to become an everyday wardrobe staple. So if you haven’t tried it yet, why not give it a go? Kiss your 70s flares goodbye and let your Tehani satin skirt reintroduce you to the Nineties.
