Silk Ribbon



October is the perfect time to wear a silk shirt at work and in the evening. The weather is still warmish and silk looks do the business much more than cotton. Look no further than the Winser London’s Autumn Winter Collection.

The new Georgette Silk Top is so simple and pretty, and created for just this moment. It looks as good tucked into Wide Silk Trousers for dinner as worn over skirts or trousers during the day. It is a delicate tunic top and can be worn under a jacket too, while the substantial hem gives it a smart finish.

Both the V neck Silk Tops are also lovely to wear under tailoring, and the classic Silk Shirt and Lauren Silk Blouse are also favourites with our customers. On a personal note - a white shirt or blouse is perfect in its timeless classic design and never needs to be gussied up!

For those who are not office bound, I recommend the Silk Tuxedo Dress and the Long Length Silk Tunic shirt - over narrow pants, its “smart casual” solved. Last but not least, the Hollywood chic of a Noel Coward heroine sums up the look of the Maxi Silk Shirt Dress in soft vintage rose. Accessorise with a glass of Champagne.

Most of the silk tops and shirts have 5% elastane woven within the pure silk, this has revolutionised the handle and the resistance to creasing. So at the end of the day the silk is, well, as smooth as silk.

It was inspiring to read our October interview with Professor Mokbel and as Friday 24th October is pink ribbon day, I shall be wearing my Winser vintage rose silk top to support Cancer Research. Also, it wouldn’t go amiss to pop down to the cancer support charity shop in the high street for a spot of recycling.
