Elegant at any hour, silk is the perfect pick to jumpstart your summer wardrobe. Here is a quick how-to guide on adding the luxurious fabric to your everyday looks, from your friends at Fashion Fabrics Club.
Just because a skirt is silk, doesn’t mean it can only work in formal settings. It’s all about the color, cut, and pairing. A soft neutral like a brown silk and simple pleated silhouette is just right for everyday wear, especially when paired with simple basics like a white tank and neutral mules.
You will be pleasantly surprised at how versatile a slinky silk tank is once you add it to your closet. It’s perfect with formal skirts and trousers, and offers an unexpected twist to casual pieces too like distressed denim skirts, jersey joggers, or cutoffs.
This is the ultimate one-piece for days when the temps are so high you don’t feel like putting anything on at all. A silk spaghetti strap wrap dress feels nearly weightless—even better in fact, the silky-smooth feel has an almost cooling effect.
A little more whimsical than the traditional cotton button up, but just as office-friendly, this white silk crepe button up with its feminine tailoring, corset-inspired buttons, and flared sleeves makes everything it’s paired with feel special and new (even your most-worn denim).
Shorts, a necessary summer staple, suddenly become so much more than simple cutoffs when they’re rendered in sophisticated silk. Even when paired with just a simple T, they have a way of looking smart and refined, i.e. the perfect no-brainer chic piece for summer dressing.
