Since we’ve talked about wearing white at weddings for centuries, let’s first talk about this a little more. In most cultures, brides wear white dresses. Because white is defined as the color of purity, simplicity, and spirituality. Its origin began in ancient Greece. At that time the color white was considered the color of celebration. History and culture are not only inspiring fashion but the inspiration from the past is presented to us with a completely different freshness.

Of course in the 21st century, with its beautiful tones, lace, tails and skirts, both fun, sexy, and modern styles are captured. But one of my favorites is the white silk wedding gowns that draw attention with their simplicity and elegance. We approach a fashion trend where the power of simplicity is felt even more today. So we can easily say that silk white dresses reflect the femininity of women and the wonder of weddings.

Wedding dresses are the focal point of weddings in themselves. If you choose silk fabric for a wedding dress, it will not need completion. But this does not mean that it cannot increase its magnificence and power. If you use lace with silk fabric, that will take silk fabric to the next level. That’s why French are famous for these laces! Finally, if you add tails in silk dresses for wedding dresses that allows the wedding dress to dominate the whole hall with beauty.

You’ve come this far, you’re getting ready for a party, and you want to wear a white satin dress. But you can’t decide on your skirt length. At this point, it’s up to me to offer you a few options. You can easily choose the skirt length according to your body type, low cut, and the place you will go.

Maxi Dress

White satin dresses suits indoor and outdoor venues with their long hemline. But there are many models suitable for every body type. In addition, dresses with long skirts and loose skirts are a great option for people with a pear-shaped bodies. We have seen a lot of long and stylish white satin dresses until this part, but it is also possible to use these dresses as daily basics. Blazer jackets, sneakers, and white long socks, as in the photos, make the elegance of these dresses suitable for daily use without any curtains.

Mini Dress

We may prefer mini dresses for daily life use. But also it is possible to use such dresses in more elegant places. First of all, let’s talk about daily use. A mini white silk dress and a denim jacket on top of simple white sneakers or black boots like the photo will create a clear, chic yet sporty style. You can go anywhere with this style. For example, a simple coffee date or a concert with friends, this look will add a romantic atmosphere to any environment. Secondly, it is possible to be very stylish in short dresses and to attend such invitations or parties. A short white satin dress, stylish heels, and a shiny bag, and voila!

As you can see in the photos, these two dresses are not very different from each other. But they can adapt to any environment with the difference in the way they are combined.

White Silk Dress Neck Options

It’s time to choose the most suitable one for you for white satin dresses, which have many models. Especially for satin dresses in maxi length, the upper part of the dress is the place that makes the dress stand out. So this part is very important for us. In this section, I would like to talk about the most popular models recently.

Spaghetti Straps

First of all, the most eye-catching of the short-sleeved models is the spaghetti straps with their elegant touch. These model straps, especially when you combine with a satin or silk fabric, officially recreate the dress with a delicate touch. Thin straps, which can also has different chest style options, can be a trick to draw the eyes to the top of the dress.

Cowl Neck

Secondly, the cowl neck slip has become a common collar style in dresses. I think the cowl neck provides the mobility that a plain satin dress needs. Moreover, cowl neck slip silk dresses never lose their shine with every combination without the need for much effort. Corset tops, which were also the shining stars of last year, still trendy in dresses, especially in satin dresses. I find it very successful in creating the necessary solid appearance by adding toughness to the upper part of the dress. You can use corset dresses with both spaghetti straps and long sleeves.

Long Sleeve Silk Dress

Then let’s talk about long sleeves. Long-sleeved silk dresses show themselves very well both in autumn fashion wedding dresses and in casual white silk dresses. It never adds a straight look to the dress. In my opinion, when they use long sleeves on a short satin dress, it lengthens the model and makes it look thinner.

These satin dresses are not unique to this period, as I have mentioned from the beginning. They are fabrics that have been used for centuries. It looks like it will fascinate people for many more years with its brilliance and elegance. In other words, having a white satin dress in your closet can stand in the corner of your closet for years. And allow you to easily combine it wherever necessary. If you are a fan of satin dresses with corsets like me, you will love the dress I found in this link! I think every outfit where timeless fashion is one step ahead of fast fashion is actually a step towards making this world livable. We never compromise on our elegance and support sustainability.

If you want to take a closer look at the dresses in the above photos or buy them, you can take a look at the collections of Shone Joy and Anna October.

The off-white brand, which captures the use of the corset we mentioned before in the writing, absolutely elegantly, has created a dazzling piece again. The use of corsets on the transparent long-sleeve top is dazzling in harmony with Kylie’s way of showing her body type and style. White silk dresses, which we often see in Kylie’s daily life clothes are also frequently seen at such events. Kylie is absolutely successful in drawing attention with her clothes and captures the fashion icon by choosing this piece.

Off-White Collection Pieces

Speaking of the Off-White brand, I would like to talk a little bit about the 2023 “CELEBRATION” collection. It is not exactly a collection made of silk fabrics. But it is possible to see the power of silk fabric in small details in some pieces in this collection. Making the collection fashion show and its photographs on a neon blue background, and the fact that some pieces in the collection are the same color as the background made the white shine even more. White satin details brought the collection pieces to the arch. The fact that Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner carry many outfits from the Off-White brand shows the quality of the brand. And its pieces that can be adapted to daily life. You can visit Off-White on Instagram and watch the video of this eye-catching fashion show.

Finally, we say that reading is enough and I leave you a video. Satin dresses, especially in the 7th and 11th minutes of an internet shopping wedding dress trial video, became my favorite again. Love you!
