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 . . .
Remember when I said wearing the same dress to the same event shouldn't happen? Well, it did again! Singer Katharine McPhee and actress January Jones both wore Rory Beca's green silk tie dress to Tao Nightclub's second anniversary party in Las Vegas. Katharine decided to go bare-legged and flirty with pointy gold pumps, while January chose a more funky look in navy blue tights and matching t-strap sandals. Who do you think wore it better?
