Choose silk because you deserve it! It’s no secret that at Seres we love silk. Here are our top five reasons why we’re so passionate about it – read it and we think you will agree with us!
1. It’s Natural – Be Kind to Yourself
In a world of mass-produced, man-made fabrics, it is reassuring to know that silk is 100% natural. It is naturally hypo-allergenic and won’t irritate the skin. Dermatologists and cancer charities recommend wearing it for skin which may be prone to being sensitive. Silk is also extremely durable, so investment into a quality item will last for a long while. Even Stacey Dooley must approve of that, surely?
2. Anything Goes!
Silk is so versatile. Found in everything from scarves to shirts, from dresses to nightwear, silk comes is different weights and weaves meaning that there is a silk for every occasion.
Whether you’re looking to dress up jeans, or accessorize that Little Black Dress or wedding outfit, there will be something silk that can be used to turn the mundane into the extraordinary.
We love these two pure silk tops from Pure Collection. They specialise in quality yarns such as cashmere and silk. These two beautiful silk tops give you glamour for evening and casual chic for during the day!
3. Mix It Up!
Silk can be fun! Think outside the box when you wear it. Team a leather skirt of trousers with stunning silk top. Keep simple linens stylish by mixing pairing with a stunning silk scarf. Add a silk layer over or under your woollies to keep you extra snuggly!
4. Come Rain or Shine…
The British weather is a law unto itself. One moment heatwave, the next a hurricane! Few fabrics have the breathability of silk, which allows the skin to breath. This means it will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Feeling flushed? Again, turn to silk for a fabric that will cope with whatever your inner-thermostat throws at you – something Sophie at Seres knows all about!
5. Because You’re Worth It!
Okay, so those words have become a bit of a cliche. But in reality, you are. You are amazing. Your body is amazing and you therefore deserve to have the best that you can for it. Cheaper fabrics create cheaper products but – and here in lies the crux of the matter – they will always look cheap. A cheap top will rarely make you feel a million dollars. A cheap scarf will struggle to create a WOW! factor. Choosing silk may cost you more in the short term, but the value will be truly realised over time.
Choose classic styles that won’t date easily and a colour that you love and that suits you and your will find that silk will be your go-to feel-good item of choice.
