Have You Ever Imagined How Silk is Made?
Two words: Silk. Worms. Small creatures who work their magic when creating cocoons.
And the beauty with silk clothes? They can be worn in both hot and cold climates - the feel of the garment adjusts to the temperature. So wearing silk feels warming during the winter, and cooling during summer :)
How to Look Good in a Silk Blouse
Secure them in neutrals
After securing the neutrals, feel free to build on them with bright colors and prints.
The right fit
You can find stylish silk shirt styles on the market - from the oversized to sexy party top. However, if you're aiming for a chic and pulled-together look, the shirt has to sit perfectly on your shoulders and arms. The shoulder-line should be slightly structured and not too-tight or loose on your arms.

How to Take Care of Silk Shirts
One tip of warning when it comes to cleaning your silk garments. Always read the label instructions. Usually some silk pieces must be washed by hand but there are other that needs dry-cleaning.
Here's how you wash silk clothing by hand:
Ironing your blouse? Then be careful about it as silk is a delicate fabric that can be easily ruined. Choose the correct temperature (which should be one of the lowest ones) on your iron machine.
