Everybody’s wearing silk separates

How to wear the season’s subtly sexy pieces for work and play

Fashion

Whether it’s a satin tank tucked into some masculine pants, a slinky skirt teamed with a cozy cardigan, a louche shirt unbuttoned under an oversized blazer or a classic ’90s slip over a simple T-shirt, silky separates are the most versatile pieces in any modern wardrobe. With minimum effort, silk transforms any outfit into something else: it’s easy to dress up or down; convey an overtly feminine mood; or put a twist on traditionally masculine shapes.

How to style this season’s silks? Double up with a slinky shirt paired with a slip skirt, or take the hi-low road by teaming a long liquid-silk slip dress with a chunky turtleneck – to take it from working hours to after-hours, remove the sweater and switch out your low mules for barely-there sandals. As for finishing touches, contrast the boudoir-ready vibes with a boardroom-appropriate leather clutch or modern mini bag.
