From day to night, work to weekend, the Classic Silk Shirt (GRACE) is my favourite forever shirt. All silk shirts are designed to work all year round – worn both under and over different garments – allowing for the chicest of looks. Here are my two favourite outfits for effortless transitional style, showing How to Wear the Classic Silk Shirt.
The Grace Silk Shirt is cut in our classic fit, providing a loose and comfortable silhouette. The lace yoke adds feminine detailing around the décolletage. Made from a beautiful lightweight silk crepe de chine, this fabric is perfectly breathable, and its shimmer provides an eye-catching backdrop against which the custom-made gold-edged buttons glisten.
For the work week wardrobe, keep it simple with a timeless monochrome colour palette. The SCD range of white and black silk and cotton shirts are a transitional wardrobe essential, never going out of fashion. Pair the BLACK GRACE SILK SHIRT with a slim fitting pair of white trousers for your office 9-5. This offers a chic workwear look, switching the usual white shirt and black trouser combo upside down. Add a tailored blazer to elevate this style for an interview or business meeting. For both practicality and to add a pop of colour, I wear with my Liberty floral print Nikes.
At the weekend, relax in jeans. For a feminine twist, opt for a coloured jean rather than the usual blue denim. I wear the IVORY GRACE SILK SHIRT with a pair of pale pink slim-fit jeans. This pastel tone is perfect for the in between months, giving a nod to Summer but not quite delving into those Autumnal tones. This outfit is perfect for lunch with the girls or an early evening cocktail. If there is a slight chill in the air, add a camisole underneath for a subtle layer of warmth, which avoids big bulky knits until the temperature really does drop.
