How to Style a Silk Blouse

When the weather takes a cooler turn in autumn, it’s time to switch the camis and sleeveless tops for long-sleeved blouses and thin-knit jumpers. If you’re a professional businesswoman looking for fashionable fall office attire, the silk blouse is perfect for autumn. Unsure how to style it? We’ll give you styling tips on how to wear a silk blouse to the office.

Why silk?

You might be wondering why a silk blouse, rather than a cotton shirt or another fabric choice?

Well, silk is perfect for autumn because of its natural thermo-regulating properties, which make it cool in warmer weather but cosy in cold weather. It’s ideal for layering to create extra warmth, without becoming bulky. It’s also extremely comfortable against the skin, as it’s hypoallergic and breathable. This makes it ideal for those walks into the office on cold autumn mornings, and the sunny afternoons on your way home from work.

How do I wear a silk blouse?

For autumn, opt for a brightly-coloured warm-toned blouse that mirrors the beautiful fall colours—such as red, mustard, or orange. Choose a long-sleeved style with a high neckline to suit the weather.
