Are satin pants in style 2023?

With the old money aesthetics trending big time this year, satin texture is trending everywhere starting from fashion week to everyday stores. You can see it everywhere. But is it really satin? 

The real trend is bringing the old money classy aesthetic everywhere with silk garments that naturally look expensive. And in that attempt satin also became a popular man made fabric became popular too. 

Satin pants became popular in 2023 because of the classy and expensive touch it adds to your outfits. Giving us the old money look.

Can you wear satin pants during the day?

Yes you absolutely but not every satin pant can be worn during the day. If you are looking for satin pants for work or any other sophisticated gathering, it cannot look too funky. Here is how to pick the right shade of satin pants for day activities.

Satin Pants For Work

If you want to wear satin pants to work to create a polished work look then pick muted shades that are not too light or bright. These will keep your satin pants toned down and classy. 

In terms of style, pick wide leg satin pants. Satin is not a very sturdy material, so in pants style they will be flimsy. If you pick narrow leg ones, it will easily grab onto your skin and not feel appropriate. So, instead pick wide leg that will look flowy and classy. There are outfit ideas to help you as well.

Some shades that I love are:


Satin pants for work

Satin Pants For Other Day Activities

For any other day activities where you want to look put together, you can wear other shades of satin pants as well. But the goal is to do a day light test to make sure its not see through. 

This is the main reason I like to avoid white satin pants. If you really want to wear white, pick silk pants which will be thicker.

What do you wear under satin pants?

This is the million dollar question that will save you from a fashion disaster. So many women ignore underwear basics and ruin their outfits. 

You cannot wear thick underwear that have elastic seams under satin pants. These will show without even being visible with the panty line. 

Instead opt for seamless underwear which will be invisible under satin pants, so you don’t even need to wear thongs. 

Now for ladies who wear shapers, Spanx has excellent seamless underwear shapers that would do the trick.
