A silk blouse is a timeless wardrobe staple but I have to admit, I've really only started investing in them recently. They're so flattering but for some reason when it came to styling them, I always had a hard time. I used to make the mistake of pairing silk tops with similar luxe fabrics (usually in matching pastel shades, don't ask me why) and wind up looking like a kid on Easter Sunday.
I have since discovered that there are lots (and lots) of ways to style a silk top. Perfect for pulling off a classic office look when paired with your favorite high-waisted skinnies, a blazer, and heels, the silk top also looks great on date night tucked into a leather mini skirt. To switch things up, try on ruffles, polka dots, stripes, or styles with oversized sleeves to give your go-to denim skirt/jeans a bit of extra polish.
Today, I went for a monochromatic look by playing with different hues of the same shade. I paired a bronze silk tank with a chocolate polka-dot pencil skirt and cream booties to pull together an outfit that's solid for day or night. So whether you're headed to work or looking for a last-minute dinner ensemble, let the silk blouse become your go-to.
