In the upper echelons of the wardrobe world sit a few hero fabrics. For their inimitable qualities that no synthetic material could ever sincerely match, natural fibres, include silk and cashmere retain the top spots as most luxurious, most comfortable, and more exciting to wear.
Whilst winter naturally lends itself to cashmere styling, I’m keen to take the silky styles for a walk around the block this season. For the luxurious finish that balances robust lustre and a smooth touch, a silk blouse is the opulent wardrobe addition I’ll be wearing all season.
Whilst it might not strike you as a winter fabric, for its versatile styling credentials, a silk blouse is as winter-weather friendly as it gets. Style with rich velvet trouser for a cocktail event, or wear underneath a classic wool blazer and thick coat as you head into the office. As a luxury fabric, silk will often come in at a higher price than its synthetic satin counterpart. Luckily for us, high street heroes such as Mango, H&M and Zara have all tried their hand at designing with the rich material, creating beautiful garments that fall within a friendlier price bracket.
Screaming “quiet luxury” like no other fabric can, a simple silk blouse is the outfit elevating solution to your party wear conundrums. Read on to discover our edit of the best styles from Reformation to Saint Laurent below.
