9 Silk Pieces To Slip Into When It’s Too Hot Outside For Anything Else
A silk top will seriously save you time in the morning to catch some extra shut-eye. It's the universal throw-on piece that we can't stop obsessing over.| August 15, 2018
Picture a world where you need only put in half the effort you would normally take to dress up in the morning. Let’s be honest, that’s about a good 15 minutes of extra snooze time. With all our chronic 3 a.m. Instagram scrolling and Netflix binging, those extra minutes go an extra long way. Anything to trim the prep time and up the nap time, we’ll take.
These days, we have two words for it: silk tops.
Timeless, so unbelievably breathable and comfortable, silk has been having a revival of late ever since Gucci, amongst several others, decided to let the pyjama trend rip on the runway. It’s no longer just the silky slip dresses that we have our eye on anymore. The fact that it’s taking over our Instagram in print and understated is the last stamp of approval we need.
Pairing them is as easy as pie. Think of it like your favourite white t-shirt or white shirt, but with a bit of a polished vibe, though you can go from dressed up to down in a second. We like them tucked into jeans and topped with vintage-style necklaces. If you’re feeling bold, go with a silky skirt or pants. Basically, it’s like wearing office-safe pyjamas. Mornings, not so bad anymore, eh?
One tiny, tiny downside, though: silk creases easily. Like, really easily. It also isn’t one of those things that you can put on without at least running it through the steamer. The upside to this all? It un-creases super easily, too! That, and that it is so cooling on the skin. It’s a glass half full sitch. Shop our favourites of the moment below!
