How to Wear a Silk Top During the Day
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!

I’ve recently posted an article about wearing a silk top and as soon as I got home from the shoot I did exactly the same – jumped into my Pj’s and made a cup of tea! haha x
Haha…Yes, this top isn’t something I wear lounging around the house! But it’s fun for a night out….or coffee run 😉 Thanks for stopping by Maria!
Girl we have all been there and honestly, it’s a silk top so you are fabulous no matter what you do! I love silk but I HATE how easily it stains and wrinkles so it’s the very last thing I put on and the first thing I take off!
The Adored Life
Thanks Alissa! 🙂 Yes, silk is definitely a sensitive fabric! I don’t get to wear it that often now with the baby. So I have to reserve them for Starbucks runs now…haha.
I adore your silk blouse, it’s so elegant and very smart. That’s a cute bag too! Jacqui
Thanks Jacqui! 🙂
Love this blouse! You look lovely!

I don’t really treat my silk pieces as special, if I had it my way, my whole closet would be full of silk. There is little worse than that fake out moment when you think a blouse is silk but then it turns out to be polyester, yet is still $80.
Beautiful look, I love your silk shirt 🙂 Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays, you will be one of my featured blogs later today as I am starting the hop early this week, Pinned.
What a fab top dear, almost as pretty as your hair! You really can’t go wrong with silk’s luxurious look.

I love silk as well, and just recently discovered it in my wardrobe (at my 30’s).
I am slowly replacing my old polyester shirts for silk ones, and it has been quite a job. Silk feels amazing but is not forgiving at all. Keeping silk ni top shape is expensive and time consuming, however it is really worth it.
If you know places apart from Madewell, J Crew, Everlane, Equipment to buy silk shirts let me know!
