Colors may be refreshing and add life to your outfits, but sometimes I need neutrals. They’re easier to add to my wardrobe because they tend to be more timeless and they’re less memorable, which means I wear them more often.
When LilySilk asked me to share their summer promotions with you, I found myself drawn to their pale neutrals. I already have a ton of black in my wardrobe and wanted something lighter, so I zeroed in on soft white and ivory.
This silk cardigan is perfectly classic and oh so wearable. It’s available in black, camel or this soft white. It will dress up over a sleeveless dress or down over a tank top and jeans. The fabric is a knit blend of linen and silk which is soft and airy. It’s a straight fit so not body-conscious which makes it easy to wear over many things. I am wearing a medium.
Here, I’ve styled it over a lightweight, fully lined, crepe de chine silk camisole in soft Ivory. This seems more like a tank to me because the shoulders will cover your bras straps. Because I can wear it with my regular bra, I will reach for again and again. The directions recommend dry cleaning or handwashing. I always handwash my silk and steam lightly to get the wrinkles out. I am wearing the medium which fits well, so it runs true to size. It’s also available in black, but this natural white is very flattering against my skin tone. It’ll also coordinate with brown, blue, gray, black, or myriad deeper colors this fall and get a lot of use.
Are you a fan of wearing neutrals or color?
