HOW TO: STYLE A SILK SHIRT

Styling a silk shirt | The Alma Chronicle

Silk and Boujee…

Right up there with the white button down shirt, is the silk shirt on the hierarchy of wardrobe staples. It is the perfect touch of luxury & versatility and a must have in any woman’s wardrobe.

In my quest to build a minimal wardrobe, I’ve become more drawn to pieces that can play multi-functional roles depending on my choice of outfit.  Transitioning easily from casual, to smart, tailored outfits and even making an appearance on the androgynous days, I’ve found a black silk shirt to be the perfect chameleon in any wardrobe.

I can almost never resist an all black pairing and this look is no exception.

    I like how sleek the outfit looks and the pairing of the jewelry and stripes bag is top notch.

    So chic. I’ve been meaning to update my wardrobe with pieces like a silk shirt and a white button down shirt for the longest time. I’m very picky though. Thanks for the inspiration ?

    You look great! Not sure I can pull it off. Any tips specific to full-figured women? :/

      Hey Joy!

      First of all, thank you! For fuller figured women, I recommend going with one piece that is figure flattering, for example, a straight skirt or pants. You can always pair an oversize piece with a more fitted one and look great! It works for all my clients! Also, invest in waist belts, they’re great at accentuating the waist and giving the illusion of an hourglass figure. I do it all the time!

      I hope this is helpful and if you need more help, shoot me a direct email and we can talk better!
