This Trend Will Take You From 2017 to 2018 Seamlessly

The fabric we're predicting to flood our social feeds at the start of the New Year? Easy: sleek, shiny satin in all shapes and colors, from heavy duchess satin to its thinner, more delicate sibling, charmeuse. We love the luxe fabric for its undeniable '70s vibe—after all, the era has dominated the runways and the street style scene all year long. And let's not even talk about the way it feels against our skin.

Clearly you can't blame a girl for wanting to wear satin from sunup to sundown, and luckily for us, Victoria's Secret understands completely. Sure, the retailer has us covered in the pajama department, but it's also inspiring the rest of our wardrobes, especially with the holiday season looming large in our minds. From elegant dresses to some of the coolest third pieces we've come across, these luxe picks are perfectly party-ready (though to be perfectly honest, we'd be happy to wear them any old day of the week).

Keep reading to see the satin pieces we're picking up right now.

Liquid Dresses

Is there anything more divine than a satin dress? Not in our book. Don't shy away from color here—pinks and marigolds are big news for the coming season, while there will always be room for black. Embellished pumps and a faux-fur bomber will have you set for New Year's Eve; then swap them out for tall boots and add a turtleneck layer to carry you through to the first brunch of 2018.

Silky Shirts

If a satin blouse doesn't make you feel like the fanciest girl in the room, we quite frankly don't know what will. If you need us, we'll be stocking our closets with top after top in this lush fabric. Prediction: A pajama-style shirt with high-waist cigarette-leg jeans is about to be our official uniform of 2018.

Satin Trousers

Swap jeans for high-gloss trousers that elongate your legs. The super shiny fabric looks ultra-luxe and are perfect for taking you from day to night. Have fun here and try silhouettes you normally wouldn't, like a wide-leg or pajama style for a modern look.

Satin Third Piece

We love a bit of sheen to make our statement pieces pop against matte denim. For our third piece, we've got satin on heavy rotation, whether it's with kimono styles or long dress shirts we're wearing as a jacket. The fabric looks super breezy when you walk and adds an element of sophistication to any ensemble.
