Trend Alert: Silk Utilitarian

Silk has a new look; it's more relaxed but hardened with tough details. This new silk utilitarian twist is more wearable and comfortable. Silk tops, jumpers, pants, and accessories have been updated with drawstrings, zippers and cargo pockets to lend a simultaneously chic and casual look. Gianfranco Ferre (left) went casual-lux with this zippered grape silk mechanic pantsuit. Now, buying silk can be an investment so I provided a couple silk-like items for you to wear this slick trend without stretching your wallet. As always, have fun . . .

I recently bought a cute satin dusty pinkish grey jumpsuit that's belted with shorts and I love it!

I like the color of the outfit in the main picture but it makes her look like she's on stilts. I can't say I'd like silk, I'm too active and always jumping around I'd be afraid to ruin it.

I can be a huge investment. As for the basic shape of the pieces, they could be difficult to wear. You definitely have to have the right body shape so as to avoid looking bigger. But pretty colors!

This was a trend featured in Lucky's May issue. That bib necklace was featured with it. I think the trend is alright, I don't think everyone will catch on because like she said, silk can be an investment.
