The beauty that is silk is surrounding us at the moment in every weave. New and up and coming brands are coming into our magazines, into boutique stores and at a price that is affordable and with beautiful quality.
This is amazing for all you ladies who have amazing curves! Curvy bone structure and silk goes hand in hand, the fabric glides elegantly over the body shape and compliments it amazingly.
For you ladies who are straighter go for an Organza Silk, this fabric is stunning but it has a harder appearance and feel and the structure works so well with your Structure.
I have found that without going really high end the best brands to go with our the small ones, they love the product they are selling and when love goes into it, you will normally be getting a premium product for a great price.
Rixo is one of my new obsessions, I love this brand. It is so unique, cool, classy and just so versatile. If you follow my blogs/instagram you know I love to be able to get as much wear out of my wardrobe as possible and anything that can be worn to a wedding and on a normal day in different ways are the best pieces to have hanging in there!
If you love print, you will love Rixo.
Vintage inspired brand, the founders of Rixo personally hand print all the silks for the garments so that each piece is different. You can see the love that is put into this brand and you can see why it does so well. You will find dresses, skirts, tops and coats on the website in all of their prints. Net-a-porter also is a big seller of Rixo but if you want to try on before you buy to find your perfect piece, a lot of independents stock it as well as Selfridges and Anthropology. https://www.rixo.co.uk/stockists/
Ethereal London is a local brand to me and the dresses are about to be stocked in the Dressing Room in St. Albans.
This lady has started her own business after years of retail buying. There are a range of dresses and they all give you the option of different lengths, sleeve lengths and if you love a print they seem to come in different colour options.
I came across this brand the other day, I met the lovely lady who owns this business so I had to have a look. I am so glad I did, this brand is a cami/slip business but the dresses could be worn easily as dresses rather than slips and the cami's capture the French style that is so chic and classic.
This company is based on the idea that there aren't enough good layering pieces out there that are silk. Silk is breathable, soft and comfortable and also doesn't show through clothing, it glides with other fabrics so works perfectly as a layering piece but also as an outer piece.
They also custom for bigger busts. Check them out!!!
Finding the perfect under garment is key to making your outfit!
High Street brands will often be a cheaper option but they are mass produced and in most occasions you will find that the quality will not be quite as good.
If you really are looking for a gorgeous quality piece definitely shop around.
