Add This to Your Wardrobe, So You Can Get Ready While You're Half Asleep

We're always looking for ways to revive much-loved pieces and the silk shirt is certainly a humble staple we want to wear more often to the office. If you purchase just one this month (imagine having that much self-control), you'll want it to be a silk shirt. While the thought of spending hard earned cash on a "low-key", "boring", or minimal piece may seem obscure. Think again. The silk shirt looks as luxe as it feels and throwing it on in the morning will save you precious getting-ready time.

If you're looking to put some colour back into your wardrobe this spring, a pattern or print shirt paired back with neutrals, such as classic denim, is an easy outfit you'll want to wear everyday to the office. Feeling brave? Contrast your soft and delicate silk with tough accessories and leather boots for a play on masculine and feminine. Whether it be important days at the office, or a show in the evening, a silk shirt is equal parts glamorous as it is easy.
