Four Ways to Style a Black Silk Shirt

A silk shirt is a timeless wardrobe staple and one every woman needs in her wardrobe.

No matter the occasion – a serious day in the office, a job interview, date night, drinks with friends – its versatility is undeniable as it moves seamlessly from 9-5 to after 5.

Style icons, both past and present, have confirmed the silk shirt as a classic. Those iconic Hepburns – Katherine and Audrey – effortlessly tucking theirs into wide legged pants. Lauren Hutton carelessly popping hers into a pair of khakis. And, Victoria Beckham styling a silk shirt with a high-waisted tailored trouser.

Silk is on high rotation in every fashion editor’s wardrobe and we’ve all seen many styling Equipment signature blouses with their inimitable je ne sais quoi.

Wherever you choose to draw inspiration from when styling a silk shirt, there is one thing that’s certain –  whatever you want it to be for you, it can. Be it polished, casual, effortless, tailored, smart or masculine, it is the chameleon in your wardrobe.

Here, I’m styling a black silk shirt from Lilysilk. The shirt is made of a luxurious crepe de chine and is wrinkle resistant.  It’s feminine in a demure, understated way. It looks good tucked, part-tucked and untucked.  It’s slimming, yet enhancing. But, best of all, it has a premium look while being very reasonably priced.
