How to Style a silk shirt?
Basic Rule: Ditch anything that screams Trend, yes you heard that right!
Trendy or not that has nothing to do with your wardrobe unless that is where your focus is. Styling a silk shirt could be dependent on various factors such as your body type, occasion, fabric you are pairing it with, the type of climate you live in etc.,
- For someone with a tall and lean body type, solids, stripes or bold prints would be a good choice and you might have more to experiment with. If not for a pure silk you could go for art silk which is artificial silk and is made up of synthetic materials, these are typically lower in price and look almost the same as a pure silk.
- Men who are bulkier framed can still opt for solids as they are a staple for everyone but opting for bold prints will make it more interesting as that sort of creates an illusion and takes the focus away from their problem areas and shifts it to the prints. Opting for mixed silk can be an alternate choice which is typically a certain percentage of mix of silk and other fabric. However, one should never shy away from rocking a pure silk shirt.
Fabrics to Pair with
Silk shirts could be paired with cottons which are a usual go to for many, especially if its a dhoti the shirt is being paired with. To give this whole regular or traditional vibe a fusion twist, pair this silk shirt with a chunky jumper in colder months, this will make heads turn anywhere you go.
