Chances are you’ve been spotting silk sets everywhere this season!

It is a good time to ensure your wardrobe is versatile and make sure that the pieces you buy can easily be restyled in different ways to suit a myriad of occasions.

A versatile skirt and top set, gives you the opportunity to style them as solo separates, or put them together for those big calendar events that require an extra special outfit.

My style philosophy has always been; be able to dress something up or down to ensure you get maximum wear out of everything. The goal… trendy, statement-making, and versatile all at once.

Let us delve into the set pictured; the most popular cut in the silk skirt is the midi, it showcases perfect summer vibes and suits most body types. Straight cuts would work best for pear figures or hourglass shapes, and if your body is a rectangle or apple contour try out the a-line flowy style to enhance your curves.


The slip skirt is a wardrobe hero. There is the option of leaning into the feminine, dressier style and pairing with a romantic blouse or flirty cami top and strappy sandals. Change it up with ruffled top and wedges to elevate the look for those perfect summer evenings.

IF YOU WANT TO GO CASUAL…If your personal style is more relaxed or tomboy-like, a silk cami can easily be worn casually with a simple denim short and sneakers for a slouchy yet sassy look. Style the skirt with a simple T-shirt and a pair of white sneakers for a laid-back casual look.

If you’re looking for ‘throw on and go’ looks, silk separates are the perfect foundational ones to start with. Remember, you can also wear your satin skirt for work by teaming it up with a blazer.
