Silk Shift

Do you ever get tired of your cotton dresses? Not that there is anything wrong with them, but sometimes you want something a little more dressy and luxurious feeling. Which is wear silk comes in.



Forever 21, silk colorblock shift, $32
They really nailed it with this dress.  Great colors, great shape, nice hemline.  I might belt it but otherwise, just perfect.

Max Studio, silk chiffon pique shift, $98
I really like the casual confidence of this dress.  It's got very no nonsense.


Modcloth, Across the pond dress, $80
So much detail in one shift.  I love the square neckline against the soft scallops.

BCBG, ruffle silk shift, $80
How great would this be for a wedding?

I'm really liking silk shifts for summer because they are so easy to throw on and go.  They might be a bit pricier but I think the cost per wear makes them a great piece to add to your wardrobe.

Be fabulous today!

  4. LOVE the Max Studio dress! My only major complaint with silk during DC summers is the sticky sweat factor-- yuck.
