sewing question - about lining

I have a question for all the seamstresses out there.

How important is lining on a skirt, and how important is it that it be lining satin, the standard fabric for lining clothing? I know very little about the actual technical mechanics of fashion design and sewing...I can make some things quite well, but I'm quite unlearned when it comes to the whats and whys.

I've never lined anything, and I have several brand skirts that are unlined, but I get the feeling that lining is supposed to make something better/higher quality - why is this? And why is lining always satin? Is there a reason for it? I expect there is, and I would love to know why.

I assume that lining is more important when it comes to dresses or jsks, but I'd love any information about this as well.

Basically, any basic information about lining would be very very appreciated. Sorry for a rather newbie question! Thanks so much! <3
