International Women’s Day pushes us to celebrate ourselves, as well as the wonderful women who surround us. Whatever qualities and interests we are defined by, we can all find a universal desire to love and be loved.
At Silk, we view clothes as more than something you pull out of your wardrobe in the morning and leave strewn across your bathroom floor in the evening. A woman's most frequent form of artistic expression lies in her style choices. We laugh and love in garments. We reserve our finest pieces for special occasions and define ourselves through our everyday choices.
All body shapes are welcomed to slip into our bias-cut dresses that cascade down your body, allowing it to do the talking. We don’t want to cover you up, cinch you in or tie you down. We want to celebrate the female form, whatever type and size.
We encourage you to fall in love with your body type, to think about the way it moves and the shapes it forms. It's all about accentuating the pieces that make you feel like the best version of yourself.
Styling our slip dresses based on your body type will help you learn how you move away from the mirror. Loosely slip into a category you identify with. Do you want to highlight your waist, or create the illusion of more shape?
