Usually, I never want to think about the basics.
They should be a given but in this case, I forgot.
Packing for this long weekend away in the English countryside – think long hikes on the moor, pub lunches and long lazy dinners- meant my travel bag held some unlikely partners; practicality for our long walks and dressing-up for our evenings. There is one piece I could use for both and as I riffled through my cupboards in the last minute rush I found my silk tee shirts.
Silk tees, both long and short sleeved, are the best and most practical of wardrobe essentials; I had forgotten about them. Once upon a time, I wore them nearly every day – on their own or underneath a sweater or with a blazer. This weekend they can keep me cosy alongside the comfort of walking gear and double up with my jeans and jacket for tonight. There is something about the silk, the softness, to give them a slightly dressier appeal and allow them to bridge the style gap.
These silk tees are a ‘basic” but very happy re-discovery for the weekend wardrobe. xv
