Silk Shirt Zara / Leather Leggings Dom Goor / Boots Sophia Webster / Bag YSL / Necklace Robinson Pelham / Bracelet Tilly Sveaas
The silk shirt is a failsafe option for those occasions when you want to look and feel like you’ve made an effort. Pair with contrasting fabrics and textures such as denim or leather and you have a look that’s slick, sophisticated and elegant. Your silk shirt will take you straight from the office to a cocktail bar with an undo of a button (or two!) a fresh coat of lippie and a switch of your shoes. And this perrenial wardrobe staple needn’t cost a fortune. Whether your style is ‘monochrome cool’, ‘colourful and fun’ or ‘fashion forward prints’ I hope there is something for everyone in my edit of the best on the high street. Make sure you own at least one and I promise you, the next time you are having a ‘nothing to wear’ moment, reach for your silk shirt and you’ll walk out the door feeling just the ticket!
For an up to date daytime look pair with high waisted vintage denim and a kitten heel
For an evening look, unbutton to reveal a peep of lace and delicate gold necklaces.
For a daytime office look, tuck into a pair of high waisted tailored trousers and pointed flats.
Pair with your leather (or pleather) skirt and heels or flats
Apply the rule of opposites. Pair your delicate silk with distressed denim or tough leather. If you opt for patterned silk, go plain on the bottom and vice versa.
Add your favourite statement belt and handbag to turn the luxe up a notch
Mix your textures. In winter a silk shirt looks perfect underneath a cosy knit (and solves the itch factor!)

If I was going to invest in one colour, it would definitely be black. Pair with blue denim and black heels and you have outfit perfection.
