Style Guide: Satin Homecoming Dresses
As we move through September, it’s only natural to look to the latest trends when shopping for your homecoming dress. And while fall has quite a few (Glitter! Leopard print!) today’s focus is primarily on satin. Especially popular in the ever-extra 80’s, satin has stuck around since last season, and is more popular than ever, if we do say so ourselves. Ready for a smooth style transition from summer to fall? Our crash-course in satin is right here.
What is satin?
Satin is a weave fabric with a shiny finish. Due to its thickness and rich texture, satin is best worn in cooler temperatures, making it the perfect look to sport at homecoming or a fall wedding!
Why is it so popular?
It’s no secret that 80’s fashion was over-the-top. So it makes sense that satin was one of the many trends that dominated the era. And since everything old is new again, 80’s style has come full circle, along with puff sleeves and pops of neon. Honor the decade at homecoming or your next special event with the slightly more subtle satin. The Camille La Vie collection has plenty of chic styles to get you started.
How to style it?
Choose from pretty detailing like lace and appliqué, or opt for a simple satin dress without embellishments. And just because it’s shiny, don’t shy away from jewelry! In fact, due to its regal finish, satin looks even better with extra glitz. Add texture with chunky jewels or keep it on the minimal side with delicate gold or silver earrings, rings, or a bracelet. After all, it is an 80’s trend, so more is more.
