When you think of summer clothing, the fabrics that usually come to mind are linen, cotton, or perhaps denim- silk may not instantly pop to mind. But that’s all the more reason to incorporate this luxurious fabric into your wardrobe while the season is still in full swing. Silk is so lightweight and soft and it’s also hypoallergenic for those of you with sensitive skin. It also helps regulate your body’s temperature which means it keeps you cool on a hot day and preserves your body’s heat in the cold. Surprisingly silk is so easy to care for and will retain its beauty for years. That’s why it is so often used in legacy and heirloom pieces that are passed down from generation to generation. It is truly a timeless fabric lending itself to a variety of uses- from button up shirts to cozy bedding, nighties and even formal attires such as wedding dresses.
I recently found this gorgeous silk button down shirt from Lily Silk– they offer variety of silk products. I love this shirt because it’s simple but so flawless and striking. I also got this blush tone robe with a matching eye mask. I feel a little bit sexier in this than I do in my old cotton robe that I otherwise settle for!
