Silk Blouses for Fall

Classic staples like the silk blouse are hardly going anywhere. I have some in my closet that I've had for years that I can still break out from time to time. While you can wear silk almost any time of year, long sleeved silk blouses I usually reserve for the Fall and Winter. There's another reason for this- silk is the perfect decadent pairing to velvet or cashmere, and these fabrics almost always resurface in collections for the cooler months. ESPECIALLY velvet this year guys, it's like the darling of F/W fashion for 2016. Every editor as made it THE "it" thing. While I don't wear something because someone tells me to, ever, I'd have to agree that it goes really well with all of the trends that are big this year. More on that later.

Anyways, back to silk. There are few fabrics I love to wear more than silk. I think silk and cashmere are pretty much just the best things in life and I should probably live in New York where I can wear them more (any excuse to move to New York, ha..... )  That being said, this season I plan on wearing lots of silk, especially by way of tops. Pictured here I'm wearing this beautiful, and actually really affordable lavender silk top with equally beautiful sleeves and detailing from Topshop. I've paired it with black accordion culottes also from Topshop. I topped (no pun intended) the outfit off with my new favorite basics, mules from Roberto Deville, a small French designer with well-made leather goods. Find those here.

Check out the look featured here and let me know what you think. I plan on wearing something like this for the next few months until I can finally wear some heavy jackets and full length pants! Shop some of my favorite silk blouse selections below, as well as this full look. 

Stay saucy.
