Q: How do I to wear draped and flowing styles that are in the collection this season?
A: Styles using light and flowing fabrics work best when they have a base layer to ‘underpin’ the outfit. What is meant by this is that you might have a Greta slip from the Epidermal Layers range as your ‘base’ layer, and then a floating tunic on top. This allows for great movement of the top layer while knowing you are covered and discreet with the Bamboo slip.
The season also plays a huge factor in what and how to wear draped or floating garments. In summer, you will probably be more comfortable wearing shorter sleeves or no sleeves. Also the 'Epidermal layers' come in different lengths depending on how much leg you like to show. We offer the Greta style in a slip length (knee length) or a dress length (mid calf length). Also there are pant and skirt options.
In winter, you will need multiple layers for added warmth. So simply add an Ali long sleeved top, tunic or dress with Benita leggings. This means your purchase of a Silk or Viscose Rant tunic or dress is a great investment as you can wear it all year round.
To me, the rayon and viscose fabrics are really important to our range, as they give the suppleness of the synthetic fabrics, while actually being a completely natural fabric. Rayon ,viscose , cupro and tencel are cellulose-based fabrics. It can provide luxury and drape and still allow your skin to breath.
So heading into summer, my suggestions for that gorgeous, flowy look are the 'Floating tunics and dresses 'in many silk prints , also my fav style that i wear all the time is the 'Balance tunic' . I am wearing the 'sunshine 7/8 pants' and 'Ali 3/4 sleeve top ' under the 'Balance tunic' today as it is still cooler weather.
One other thing I should point out is that layering makes washing easier. The base layers are the easy to launder garments. Our bamboo 'epidermal layers' are able to be put onto a gentle machine cycle and then put on a padded hanger to dry in the shade. Then . . NO ironing ! The top Silk or Rayon tunics and dresses are not worn next to the skin, therefore they do not need as frequent washing. They can be worn many times, only needing washing occasionally.
Once you start playing with layers, you will find that it is an easy way to dress and not as complicated as you may have thought.
