Alright, let’s be real here. Who bought a pair of silk or satin pants with hype but turns out never wear them out?
If you are one of them, I don’t blame you cause silk pants can be tricky to style!
I remember once I wore a satin top and pants set and my friend thought that I was wearing pajamas. (Pathetic)
But after countless times of outfit matching, I’ve finally figured out some flattering ways to wear the pants.
So ladies, here are the 6 ways when it comes to what to wear with silk & satin pants!
1. EMBRACE A COMFY CHIC STYLE WITH SILK JOGGER PANTS
Let’s start with the beginner level, shall we?
Despite all the classy wide-leg pants, let’s talk about the silk jogger pants first.
If you are the type of girl that worried silk pants look so dressed upon you, jogger pants are always a good start.
I adore silk jogger pants so much because they perfectly achieve the balance between looking sporty and looking feminine.
Compare to the common cotton jogger pants out there, the silk one definitely looks more dressed up.
However, with the causal design, you can basically wear whatever you want.
Pair the satin pant with a plain V-neck T-shirt and you are going to go!
2. WHEN IN DOUBT, STYLE WITH NEUTRAL COLORS
Another no-fail way to wear your silk or satin pants is always complete your look with classic neutral colors.
Colors like white, beige, black and other low saturation colors are all safe yet flattering choices.
As silk has a shiny and lustrous finish, it just naturally becomes the highlight of your outfit.
If you wear other high saturation colors like bright yellow and neon pink, those colors will visually compete with the silk pants and possibly can make you look tacky.
For me, I always wear a white top with my silk pants.
It’s not as common as blacktop and it just makes me feel so refreshed and polished!
3. WEAR SILK PANTS WITH BAGGY SWEATER FOR A CHIC STYLE
If you want to achieve the “effortlessly chic” look, you have to try out this combination!
Nothing fancy – just a turtleneck sweater and a pair of wide-leg silk pants but somehow it just looks so polished and classy.
If you want to slay this look, always remember to pair a similar shade of colors for your top and bottom so the outfit can look more complete.
For example, if you wear a brown sweater, you can consider silk pants with similar hues like beige and light gold.
Another reminder is always to pay attention to the length of the sweater.
If that’s too long, it can ruin for body ratio for sure. My personal favorite sweater is slightly above my thigh.
4. KEEP IT SIMPLE WITH SILK PATTERNED TROUSERS
Besides the solid color pants, the silk patterned trousers are getting the popularity these days.
But always remember, less is always more. Never style a busy print with another busy print.
So if you wear a pair of floral silk pants, then you probably want to do the plain color for your top to take a balance.
Some ladies may wonder will the pattern and prints make their legs look thicker. It really depends.
If the prints are small and compressed in dark colors, it merely has any effect.
However, the huge floral prints in bright colors, that will for sure exaggerate your body figure visually.
5. GLAM UP YOUR LOOK WITH A MATCHY SATIN SET
If you are already getting used to the silk and satin pants, you may want to try wearing the top and pants set together for a classy and flowy look.
I don’t always wear the set together but when I do, I always avoid the baggy design as it can look like pajamas. (From my painful experience…)
Instead, I will always prefer the fitted one that hugs my curves as that just makes me look more put together.
But seriously, if you find the right set, you will look like (and feel like) a goddess!
6. WEAR HEELS WITH WIDE-LEG SILK PANTS
Last but not least, let’s talk about shoes. When it comes to wide-leg silk pants, it’s the perfect time for us to look taller and slimmer as we can always wear high heels or platform sandals inside the pants!
I personally prefer pointed heels more as the defined V lining matches the sophisticated vibes of silk.
To me, the round toe heels look a bit too juvenile and sweet for the look.
As a petite girl, this is probably the biggest reason why I am so fond of the silk wide-leg pants!
So ladies, here are the 6 tips when it comes to what to wear with silk & satin pants! Let’s have a quick recap first.
- Embrace a comfy chic style with your silk jogger pants
- When in doubt, style with neutral colors
