4 Ways to Style a Silk Dress in Winter
Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you have to give up the simple pleasure of wearing a silk dress in winter. While most of us think of our silk slip dresses as perfect (and exclusive) for warm weather, they are more adaptable to the four seasons than we give them credit for.
This is How to Style a Silk Dress this Winter
Part of the charm of a silk dress is that it can be worn with just about anything, in almost any circumstance. Including summer’s sun and winter’s ice.
1. Beneath a Leather Jacket – The basic problem you must solve in wearing any summer outfit in winter is, quite simply, keeping warm. We assure you right now that you’ll not regret pairing your favourite dress with a black leather jacket. Not only will you be warm, but you’ll also be really cool too.
2. On Top of Jeans – We bet your jeans wardrobe is fairly flexible too. So your silk dress will look great over your perfectly faded blues, and your favourite red skinnies.
3. Layered Out – This is how to style your silk dress for the coldest of days. Over your favourite turtleneck and black jeans, your silk dress will still be seen under your matching wool coat. You can make this work even with your heaviest, and warmest, winter boots.
4. For a Winter Wedding – The flexibility of silk dresses can help you style your way out of some fashion jams too, like what to wear to a winter wedding. If you’re on the happy couple’s A-list, or part of the family, you can style it up with a chic overthrow. And if you’re more on the “Plus 1” end of the spectrum, you can stay comfortable wrapped in a warm knit over the dress.
If there’s a downside to the versatility of your silk dresses, it is that you’ll wear them so much, you’ll need to get them cleaned more often. The professional custom clothing care specialists at Parkers are experts in preserving the textures and finishes of the most delicate fabricates, including silk.
