Because… why not? After all, Grace Coddington wore them to the Met Gala, so I should be able to pull them off for a dinner in the neighborhood, right? Well, I sure think so. And, I am a huge advocate of this trend for a few reasons. For starters, I adore silk. I sleep in silk pjs, and would probably have silk sheets if it weren’t so creepy and 50 Shades of Grey– esque. However, I am considering getting a silk pillow case because it is supposed to be much better for your hair and skin… Anyway, I love just about everything silk, and a slinky, silk shirt is no exception, especially one with a deep v like this striped one I’ve got on by Rachel Zoe.
Another reason I like silk is because it makes me feel luxe. I’m all about fancy materials, and nothing screams rich like a silk slip dress. In fact, I’m wearing a silk robe right now! LOL. You get the point. Silk is wonderful and we should all wear it more often.
That being said, a silk, v-neck blouse can look like you just rolled out of bed if not styled correctly. As much as I think I have as much swagger as Grace or Alexa Chung… I don’t. And I can’t seem to pull off a head-to-toe, floral set as effortlessly as Vogue’s famed, fire-y haired Creative Director.
So – here’s how I made the PJ look work. I paired the top with navy trousers, and then added a little structure with a black blazer. Sexy high heels are a must! You can shop this look below, and let me know what you think in the comments!
