Classic Wrap Shirt - Everything you need to know

September 08 2020

As the name suggests, our Classic Wrap Shirt is a classic, timeless piece that never goes out of style.

Made with pure silk (that’s been intricately hand dyed and hand woven), it’s a true wrap piece.  There are no zips, buttons, hooks or eyes, just beautiful silk sashes that blend seamlessly into the design.

In this blog, you’ll discover why this piece continues to be our most popular. From design and fit to colour and versatility, here’s what makes this piece so unique.

 

Design

Featuring an always flattering v-neck, classic collar and French cuffs, the Classic Wrap Shirt is the epitome of elegance and is the cornerstone of our pure silk collection.  

Considering that this top is a wrap design and sits securely on your body, you won’t have to worry about adjusting anything throughout your event celebrations. Just focus on enjoying yourself and capturing some gorgeous images!   

 

Colours

The Classic Wrap Shirt comes in a multitude of colours, to suit your personal style and personality. From neutral tones to pinks and blues and the ever classic black and ivory, there’s 11 you can choose from:

  • Ivory
  • Black
  • Midnight Blue
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Soft Pink
  • Nickel
  • Coffee
  • Teal
  • Shell
  • Gunmetal

 

Variety

There are two versions of the Classic Wrap Shirt—block silk and sheer silk organza.

The block silk is opaque and  a very elegant look.  The pure silk holds the colour magnificently, as depicted in the pictures below.

The sheer silk organza is equally as elegant, with a slightly more subtle colour.  All sheer silk Classic Wrap Shirts come with a coordinating camisole to wear underneath.

Both options are beautiful; the one you choose simply depends on which look feels more like you!

 

Versatility

Thanks to its simple and sophisticated design, the Classic Wrap Shirt can be worn to all kinds of special occasions. It’s perfect for a Mother of the Bride / Groom who is part of an indoor or outdoor wedding (e.g. at a beach, garden, country, restaurant or registry), a guest attending a wedding, cocktail party, milestone birthday, graduation ceremony, gala etc.

The beauty of the Classic Wrap Shirt is that once the celebrations end, it can be worn again and again. Pair it with a skirt or pants from your wardrobe and you have yourself a classic and elegant look for a night at the theatre, a concert, or a day at the office.

It’s easy to dress it up or down, depending on where you’re going.

 

Styling Options

There are many Living Silk skirts to complement the Classic Wrap Shirt, such as the Bohemian, Pansy, Cocktail and Lace skirts. The first three styles come in the same colour as the Classic Wrap Shirt of your choice, to create a seamless ensemble when paired together.

As an example, here is the Teal Organza Classic Wrap Shirt with the Teal Pansy Skirt.
