Satin. How to rock it for the red carpet or tone it down for the formal office look
Judging from how people turned up at the HiPipo awards, it’s not hard to see why we are still far from having on point red carpet looks. Even the presence of a nail walk and shoe cam could not save the disappointment on that red carpet.
So this week, the trend will be satin. Something that can be ideal for a red carpet look.  It comes off elegantly, sophisticated and is likely to give you that million dollar look.
Satin can be perfect for a red carpet gown, or even a Monday office look. Yes, it’s that versatile. When you opt to wear it to work, you could decide to wear it on your top and go for a less shimmery bottom. For instance, try pairing an emerald coloured top onto your white pants for perfect day time look.
When it comes to the red carpet, try opting for the coloured satins. You could opt for a gown with one of the latest trends like the thigh slits or plunges for a great look.
The tricky bit is that satin can come off rather clingy, especially if you opt for a body hugging piece. So the best way to pull off this look is to ensure that you opt for seamless underwear, so you don’t suffer any panty line fashion fails.
If you want a neat look, then you could also try wearing a body shaper so you have everything tucked in for a great outer look. When it comes to accessories, opt for grand pieces like diamonds, pearls, and blinged accessories for a great finish.
