Silk Separates To Keep You Cool Despite The Heat
Silk separates are so sexy and subtle (unlike this feeble attempt at alliteration). Most importantly, stay as cool as a cucumber— your outfits will be the only thing that’s on fi-yah.| September 10, 2019
Trust us when we say we know how important it is to find an outfit that can help us withstand the unbearable tropical heat. Thanks to Singapore’s close proximity to the equator, it feels like summer all year round and it’s nearly impossible for us to take a five-minute stroll in the sun without becoming a perspiratory mess.
Since wearing as little clothing as socially acceptable is a tricky game to play, we have mastered the art of beating the heat in a tasteful manner (if we may say so ourselves) through playing with fabrics. Our material of choice? Silk.
We’ve raved about silk pieces and how they are the saviours that we can count on to elevate any outfit with minimum effort. This season, we are ready to add more silk to our wardrobes, even if our wallets aren’t. Prada’s silk-twill jumpsuit is testament to how the pyjama trend has prevailed since Gucci put it on the map (or runway, to be exact). We can’t get enough of how the material adds a delightful twist on traditionally masculine shapes.
Versatile and modern, silk just makes it so easy to take your outfit from working hours to after hours. Look at these gingham pieces from Bernadette Florence and how they convey an unapologetically feminine mood. You can even slip them over a simple T-shirt if you wish to show less skin.
But honestly? We’d pick keeping cool over preserving our modesty any day. Shop all of our favs down below!
