Wardrobe Essentials: Silk Blouses
What’s your everyday look? Although I attempt to keep things fresh (but seriously, when will I realize that day dresses are a personal pipe dream?), I do have a mainstay ensemble combination that gets me through most days.
Blazer + Silk(y) Blouse + Denim + Flats = Happy, Stylish, and Comfortable
This is my personal style equation, and I’m a huge fan because you can really change up the vibe with different items from your closet.
Today, let’s talk about silk blouses. (Or shall I say “silky” blouses. Do you think I’m going to wear dry clean only items all the livelong day? No thank you.) Although I do own a few 100% silk blouses, a lot of mine are actually made of rayon or polyester, which give them the silky look, but are machine washable. It’s a win-win, me thinks.
I love the way silky blouses drape on the body, and they are equally as lovely dressed up or down. Pair the blouses with pencil skirts, wide-leg trousers, or denim…the sky’s the limit, really. Here are some of my current favorites.
