What do you look for in a wardrobe investment piece? Quality? Versatility? Wow factor? Timelessness? A garment that fits and flatters so well that you can’t bear to leave the boutique without it?
The Classic Wrap Shirt ($279.00) from Living Silk has all of that in spades. Let’s talk quality – it’s 100% silk – which means if you look after it you’ll be wearing it for the next 20 years or more!
As for versatility, I’ve styled and tied this shirt three different ways for three very different looks – (the ever elusive) smart casual, corporate and evening.
I’ve worn the classic wrap shirt here over ripped white jeans with heels. I’ve also tied this shirt at the front. Now, of course you could also wear flats with this look too.
To take this shirt to work, I’ve worn it tied at the back over a black pencil skirt with simple black heels. You could also wear it over some tailored pants if pencil skirts are not your thing.
This look is perfect for special events. You’ll notice I’ve tucked the shirt in this time and added some sparkly earrings and heels (and champagne!).
Now, the fit. This shirt is true to size. I usually wear a 10-12/M in tops and in the images above I’m wearing a medium.
The wonderful thing about this wrap style is that you can tie it as tightly or loosely as you’re comfortable with, so you know you’re going to find your perfect fit.
This shirt is well worth popping into Living Silk’s Brisbane boutique (La Trobe Tce, Paddington) for. Do yourself a favour and browse the rest of their new corporate collection (that I had the pleasure of modelling last week – see pic below) while you’re there.
