If you invest in anything this summer, make it a pair of silk trousers or shorts. Not only will they keep you cool in the sweltering weather, but they'll instantly update your wardrobe for the new season. Now that Fall 09 is behind us, and we've had the chance to re-think Spring 09, we're reminded of Rachel Comey's colorful silk pieces that so embody the spirit of this season. Keep track of her summer deliveries right here, or, look to Topshop for options below the contemporary price point.
Available at almost every price point, versatile enough to wear them from February through July, we just can't see what's not to like about tapered silk trousers. Oh, did we mention that they're quite flattering? That you can wear them to work, a cocktail party, or grocery shopping just the same? Our favorites, from under one hundred to over one thousand dollars, above.
