Get the Look: Silk & Denim

Garnet Hill Banded Silk TunicSILK & DENIM: WHY WE LOVE THEM TOGETHER
Fashionable and understated. Elegant and utilitarian. Refined and rugged. We love the juxtaposition of silk and denim. This time of year, it’s all about finding fabulous pieces that you can wear right now, and transition into your wardrobe for seasons to come. Pieces that keep you cool when the weather’s hot, yet transition beautifully for air-conditioned workspaces and the changing seasons when that chill sneaks into the air.

Subtle Luxury Lightweight Silk-Detail SweaterTHE PRINT: KALEIDOSCOPE
This fabulous bohemian print combines so many trends. We love paisley and medallion motifs, and by mixing them together, we present a fresh spin on geometric graphics, a trend that we see continuing into fall and beyond. The patterns come together, creating an artistic patchwork effect that mimics the shifting stained-glass tiles within a kaleidoscope. There’s always something new and pretty to look at and love.

THE COLORS: BRIGHT BERRY HUES
Pinks, purples, and berry hues coordinate beautifully with indigo and worn shades of denim. It’s nice to take something bold, bright, and modern and pair it with something tried, true, and familiar, like blue jeans or an easy gray sweater. The vibrant hues pop, paired with both dark and light neutrals.

TIPS TO DRESS UP THIS LOOK
For warmer weather and dressier events, strip away the denim layers and let the dress and tunic shine. Pair the sweater or tunic with a flowing skirt or airy pants. Remove the denim jacket and let the dress stand alone. A great pair of heels or strappy sandals add polish. Bold pieces of jewelry will amp up the style; we recommend gold tones and artistic beading for a look that’s both bohemian and incredibly chic.

TIPS TO DRESS DOWN THIS LOOK
To take your look to weekends and a more relaxed place, pair a silk top with a favorite pair of jeans — the more relaxed, the better. Layer an easy denim jacket or work shirt over the dress. Accessorize with artistic jewelry pieces like a Chan Luu wrap bracelet or beaded earrings — don’t be afraid to mix tones of silver and gold. For your footwear, we recommend a comfortable flat or chunkier boot.
