The Silk Road is part myth and all mystery, as caravans carried the delicate threads west and cemented the textile in culture forever. It is indicitive of its history, admired by monachy and celebrity, alike. Silk clothing is a must-have staple in every stylish woman’s closet.
Spring is the perfect season for silk, allowing the gentle breezes to brush against us to remind us that summer is near, but allowing enough coverage to ward off the chill of a lingering winter. Few fabrics boast of being as adaptable as silk, but it really shines in structured dresses, skirts and blouses.
Here are some of our favorite silks, from the new looks springing into stores, and a few suggestions on how to style this timeless textile, so you can #ShopTheLook!
