Silk Separates For Summer

With fear of sounding like a broken record, my favorite part of having a minimized wardrobe is the seemingly endless outfit combinations I can put together. By having a foundation of timeless pieces in complimentary colors, I am able to wear nearly everything in my closet year round. This versatility allows me to get the most use out of my clothes and ensure nothing goes to waste by getting lost in an abyss of an overstuffed closet of mismatched pieces. 


An example of one of these versatile foundation pieces is this printed silk skirt. 

The skirt itself features a base color of neutral cream with a colorful but understated paisley pattern of black, beige, maroon, grey, green and orange running throughout. To play up each of these colors separately, I have paired this skirt with a chambray button down, cashmere sweater and white shirt on different occasions for entirely different looks each time. Most recently to suit the climbing temperatures here is Charleston, I paired it with a contrasting silk short sleeve top. This pairing, along with some carefully chosen accessories resulted in a new look that felt fresh and appropriate. 

By wearing two silk separates together, this outfit instantly felt luxe while still being light and airy and super comfortable.
