If I’m being honest, I put on this outfit specifically to go on a coffee run to Starbucks! It’s normal to wear a silk blouse to get coffee, right? Even though I’m a “fashion blogger” and I post photos of myself wearing cute outfits everyday, the reality is I’m usually at home on the couch in my pj’s or jeans and a t-shirt (hence my blog name – Jeans and a T-cup). I usually only get dressed up on the weekend if I’m going out or if I’m running errands during the week. So sometimes, I just want to put on my new silk top even if I’m only going to Starbucks!
So what’s the key to wearing silk during the day? I’m sharing some of the ways I incorporate silk into my everyday style. These aren’t “fashion rules” but just my opinion on how to wear silk!
Wear with Denim
Adding denim jeans to a silk top instantly makes it more casual. I would pair it with lighter denim because dark denim is dressier in my opinion. You could also wear a silk cami and pair it with a denim jacket.
Choose a Print
Choose a silk piece in a fun print and avoid ones with a sheen if you want a more casual feel. Madewell always has great printed silk options that have a boho feel. They can easily be paired with denim or corduroy for a casual vibe.
Add a Silk Scarf
If you aren’t ready to wear a silk top during the day, a silk scarf is a great option. Adding a silk scarf around your neck or tied to a bag instantly elevates any outfit. Again, Madewell has great silk scarf options at reasonable prices!
So you wear silk during the day? How do you incorporate the fabric into your wardrobe?
