 There are few styles of clothing that work harder than the satin slip skirt - and it’s really having a moment right now. According to the LTK app, searches for silky midi skirts have increased by 92% in the past month - and it’s easy to see why.

As someone whose job it is to search through the new-in sections of the best clothing shops for a living, I’ve come across some truly stunning slip skirt styles recently. And while it’s about as on-trend as it gets right now, the style itself remains incredibly timeless thanks to its sleek and simple silhouette.

While the endlessly versatile design easily transcends seasons, IMO, it really comes into its own during autumn. It’s so incredibly easy to layer, making it the perfect piece to grab when you don’t know if you’ll be encountering rain or sun on any given day (so pretty much every day between now and November). Its versatility makes it the ideal addition to your suitcase when travelling too - I packed one for a recent trip to Amsterdam and wore it 3 different ways over a 4-day trip. 

 When it comes to styling, you can tuck in a plain tee or slouchy jumper for an effortlessly elevated look, or pair it with an oversized shirt, trench coat or blazer for extra layers as the weather cools down. It also pairs beautifully with a bodysuit if it’s a sleek silhouette you’re after, and can be dressed up with strappy heels, down with your favourite trainers, or somewhere between the two with some Mary Jane flats.

Basically, the styling opportunities are endless, so along with your best jeans, a classic white tee, and other key items, it’ll be a welcome addition to your capsule autumn wardrobe. There are some stunning new-in styles out there that I simply had to share with you. From high street to high end, here are the very best satin slip skirt styles for you to shop right now.
