27 Plus Size Dresses For Babes Who Love Satin & SIlk

In my humble opinion, 2016's top fabrics were are satins and silks — and why wouldn't they be? The shimmery softness of this fabric feels amazing and looks good on everyone — which is why finding the ultimate plus size silky dress for any important events coming up before the end of the year is so important. At least, to anyone who loves keeping up with trends (and wearing buttery soft clothing.) 

From Kylie Jenner to Rihanna, stars have been dressing up and dressing down this material all year, making it the ultimate garment choice for people who want to get the most out of their clothes. Rock a slip with sneakers and a bomber jacket for a casual yet cool look, then wear the same silky slip with heels and a plus size choker for a classic evening look. 

Regardless of whether you have an occasion to wear a brand new satin dress to or not, silky dresses are fast becoming a wardrobe staple. So if you need an excuse to wear it? Just make one up. If there was ever a time for treating yourself to some fancy new clothes, it's got to be the holidays.
