Silk is currently popular as seen on the catwalks, music videos and our Instagram timelines.

Lerato Kgamanyane shows us how to have fun with this sexy material, often associated with evening wear or black tie. She gives it an edge by wearing it with a denim jacket and ankle cowboy boots.

Going to a wedding, and not sure what to wear? Take a leaf from K Naomi and try a silk two-piece set. Not only is it different, but it also stands out. A plus is that you will be comfortable in this material at all times.

Draw inspiration from Bonang Matheba and rock this comfortable and stunning material like a queen. You can even add accessories to your outfit for that extra glam!

You don’t always have to wear silk from head to toe; you can also style it with a different material. We love how influencer Sinovuyo Mondliwa styled her skirt with a cute tank top, making the silk stand out even more.

Silk pants are similar to any other material. So, you can style them like you would your jeans or skirt. Channel Ayanda Thabethe and pair yours with a statement or animated T-shirt.
