From Charlotte Tilbury blushes to sequin cropped tops, when a trend hits TikTok, we pay attention — and more often than not, the product sells out quickly. For example, Zara’s pink satin dress that went viral on the platform last month.
The satin number was a smash hit when the much-loved high street label dropped its summer line in March, selling out in all sizes in just weeks. The hashtag #ZaraPinkDress has so far garnered over 6 million views on TikTok and the dress has already resold on Ebay for up to £100.
The 90s-style pink slip ticked all the right boxes for the perfect summer dress; the slip-on style is both minimalist and effortless, while the satin finish gives it a touch of glamour.
And now the sold-out piece is back in two new colors that are perfect for those looking to adopt a dopaminergic band-aid for SS22.
Returning in a shimmering lilac and emerald green, the former is already gaining traction on TikTok, with shoppers praising its flattering fit and finish.
Retailing for £45.99, the satin briefs are complete with a midi hemline, cutout details to the back and spaghetti straps.
If you missed the pink version and what a summer staple in the form of green or lilac, here’s how to shop the satin slip – plus similar styles, as we’re planning another sale.
Zara satin dress, lilac: £45.99, Zara.com
With its simple cut, the success of this Zara satin dress lies in the details. The cutout back and slit at the back hem add interest, while the adjustable spaghetti straps, round neckline and bust seam bode well for a flattering fit. From vacations to weddings or al fresco dinners, the slip is versatile enough for any summer occasion. Available in sizes XS-XXL, for under £50 you really can’t go wrong.
Zara satin dress, green: £45.99, Zara.com
The street favorite has also brought the satin slip in a striking emerald green – a trending color for S/S22. With the same spaghetti straps, cut-out details on the back, seams and back slit, the brief is a standout piece thanks to its bold color. Wear with gold hoops and chunky sandals for a day-to-night look. This one hasn’t gone live yet, but you can sign up for email notifications to get a head start on the game.
After the sellout success of Zara’s viral pink slip, we’re predicting much the same for the brand’s new dresses. As such, here are the alternative satin styles we currently buy.
Omnes Rividi Dress in Ultra Violet: £55, Omnes.com
Durable and affordable brand Omnes is a go-to for effortlessly cool satin dresses. One of the brand’s best-selling dress styles, this Riviera midi comes in a fun ultra violet finish, with a cowl neck that nods to 90s fashion. Similar to Zara’s satin briefs , Omnes’ dress features a cutout back with additional tie detailing.
Mango Asymmetric Satin Dress: £59.99, Mango.com
A satin slip with a difference, the Mango dress features an asymmetrical strap and neckline that add fashionable detail to a simple piece. Coming in an emerald green, it has other similarities to the Zara dress, including the spaghetti straps and fitted midi cut.
Asos Design scoop neck satin midi dress: £28, Asos.com
Costing just £28, Asos’ satin briefs look like an instant warm-weather staple. Featuring a figure-hugging fit, the relaxed scoop neckline helps dress up this glamorous style. The pink and purple hue is perfect for those going for dopamine this season.
Rivaling Zara’s lilac number, Warehouse’s satin midi brief offers similar delicate spaghetti straps that cross at the back, while there’s the added detailing of a side slit and a straight neckline. With its waterfall and floaty cut, it’s a great alternative for those who want a more shapeless dress.
