Silk Plus-Size Fashion Report
[More editor's picks below]

One of the premium natural fibers, silk is exceptionally strong and can be made into fine, thin fabrics.  Consequently, it is a popular choice for both special occasion and dressier career wear. It's unique properties of being lightweight and warmer in the winter and cooler in summer makes it useful in both hot and cold climates.

 Available in both wovens and knits, the latter are frequently winter items such as sweaters and long underwear.  Silk tees make exceptionally fine layering pieces adding warmth with very little bulk. Lustrous satins are made up into luxury lingerie and sleepwear, blouses and dresses.  Matte natural and shantung silks are more likely to be used for items such as blazers and jackets. Some velvets are also silk based.  Silk cocktail dresses are especially sought after for weddings both as bridesmaid dresses and for guests. Silk kimono toppers have become especially popular as bohemian looks have trended into mainstream fashion.
