STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Slip Into Silk

May 15th, 2015 at 2:10am

Although flannel is just about the best material ever made and cotton is always comfortable, sometimes these fabrics just aren’t going to cut it. When the sun is really blazing down on us, even breathable cotton can seem like too much material. Therefore, the search for that perfect, barely there material begins. But you don’t need to look too far. This Fashionista gives us the perfect solution: silk.

This Fashionista dons a periwinkle silk camisole, perfect for the warmer temperatures. This breathable, slip-like top allows this Fashionista to stay cool, while being simultaneously comfortable. The lace detail on the top of this silk shirt allows for some extra interest to be added into this outfit, further making this top the central piece of this overall look. The cropped cut of the top and the periwinkle blue hue also add to this sort of summertime feel. Showing just the perfect amount of skin with this midriff baring shirt, this Fashionista is ready to take on these perfect 70-degree springtime days.

On the bottom half, this Fashionista sticks to some simple basics, allowing her shirt to be the most eye-catching piece of her outfit. She dons some high-waisted, ripped skinny jeans and platform heeled booties, exuding a rocker-chic vibe. Sticking to black for both her jeans and shoes, she allows the periwinkle colored top to really stand out.

This Fashionista accessorizes with some layered necklaces and a black belt. She sports a choker in addition to a zodiac constellation necklace, adding the perfect amount of subtle detail to this overall look. Again, this choker necklace plays into the edgy look this Fashionista emanates.
