The Allure of Silk


Once taboo and risky, gone are the days of silk or satin being just for lingerie. It’s now a staple, helping us feel and look confident and strong. Worthy of wearing on more than just special occasions you can incorporate silk or silk-inspired fabrics at home, on the go, or at work. As much as we want everything to be 100% silk we also love a nice, affordable dupe! Here are some beautiful choices for making us feel pampered and empowered.

Mid-length satin slip dress
Some say nightie, but we prefer slip dress because of its versatility to be worn both on its own or layer a top underneath for maximum coverage, comfort and warmth. 

Bottoms; pants and skirt
They may be a bit daring for some, but if you’re looking for a sleek texture and fit,  silk/satin bottoms are a must!

Mid-length satin robe
Whether you’re looking to lounge around in style or toss it on over a cami, you can level up your outfit with a lightweight coverup.

Patterned blouse
Easy to dress up or down, a patterned silk or satin blouse is an instant way to look elegant in the office or on the go.

Suit accents; pocket square, bow tie, tie
Let’s not leave out the masculine outfits! Look extra dapper in a suit by incorporating silk accessories for a more polished feel.

Accessories; scarves, scrunchies and headbands
Even if you’re just out running errands, throwing on a satin accessory can make you feel luxurious.

Better sleep; matching sleep set, eye mask, hair wrap, hair band, pillowcase

We’ve heard all about the beauty benefits of wearing a silk eye mask, hair wrap or using a silk pillowcase and even if it were just for comfort alone we would be hooked.

Silk is versatile, comfortable and luxurious all in one, need we say more?! Whether you’re looking to splurge on 100% silk, or pick up something more affordable, we’ve got you covered with options at various price points. Want to add even more dupes into your wardrobe?
