In the vast kingdom of fall wardrobe staples, there is one undisputed mighty queen: the satin jacket. With its effortlessly sleek fabric, the satin jacket is THAT jacket. The one so versatile that we no longer tuck it away on the change of seasons and sport it at all times of the year. With a subtle allure that quietly demands attention, the jacket dominates everything. From fashion runways to the red carpet to even streetwear, you call it.
Whether you’re looking for a Parisian-inspired look or just a minimal spring brunch outfit, there are endless ways to approach satin jackets. All you need is a little imagination. So break free from the clutches of fashion boredom, take your pair out of the cupboard and hit the town like it’s your runway. This is Stag Wears’ ultimate guide on how to style your satin jackets.
LOOK 1 – BASIC WITH A TWIST – Satin Jackets
A knitted sweater and a pair of straight pants are basic wardrobe essentials – but subtle tweaks and layering can take these pieces to the next level. Enter the satin jacket. An oversized jacket worn open atop a tucked-in grey sweater and black pants will make for a chic outfit. Put a smart twist on the look with a pair of classic black leather boots.
LOOK 2 – SPICY, SPORTY, AND DRESSY
Meet Christine Centenera. A fashion editor at Vogue, she stays at the forefront of fashion and is never afraid to experiment. So, for our second look in this edit, we take inspiration from this ever-so-stylish brunette who took a classic take on the satin jacket at Milan Fashion Week.
Here’s how you can achieve this look. Start with a sleek couture dress or a statement evening gown with a cut-out neckline. Done? Now, for some pure, high-key glam, layer it over with a baby blue satin jacket. If you’re looking for some extra drama, complement the look with a pair of black peep-toe boots.
LOOK 3 – GRAPHIC AND CLASSIC
Hold your breath and bow your head. It is time for us to introduce you to the satin jacket’s mighty royal breed – its patterned counterpart. Care for an ultimate retro spin on your streetwear look? Start by pairing a printed satin jacket with a knitted neutral cropped top and a black leather miniskirt. With the leather miniskirt, you get the best of both worlds: the effortless charm of black leather, plus the ever-so-high, party-ready feeling of a classic miniskirt. If you’re looking for an added dainty touch, throw in a crossbody bag and a pair of lace-up boots.
LOOK 4 – DOWNTOWN CHIC – Satin Jackets
For our fourth and final look, we resurrect this 80s-born jacket and style it with a modern chic appeal, without compromising on its conventional charm. Start with a cropped white top and layer it with a cobalt satin jacket, for there’s nothing quite like a zippy shade of blue to boost one’s mood. Take it from the ever-so-chic Bella Hadid and finish the outfit with skinny jeans and black sneakers.
No matter how we style it, the satin jacket gracefully walks the line between statement-making and being a timeless classic. The jacket is, undoubtedly, tailored to flatter i way that no other jacket ever will. Well, now that you know everything, what’s keeping you from strutting in satin, huh?
