Silk Nightgown Aesthetic – Nightgowns are very delicate pieces that can look very good within the comfortable environment of your own home, but they also can be so much more than lingerie to wear privately. The many different colors and styles of silk nightgowns that are now emerging are being worn by many celebrities outdoors and are becoming a staple piece to layer under many different add ons. Many new ideas for wraps are also emerging to wear along with the silk nightgowns all ranging from silk wraps to even denim jackets. Slowly but surely, silk is becoming a staple piece in every girl’s closet.
Silk nightgowns look very good on their own, with only accessories to style up according to one’s preferences. However, with the evolution of the fashion industry, many new styles paired with silk nightgowns are rising to fame and being worn by many influencers and celebrities. Found in various different colors patterns, cuts, and styles, silk nightgowns come with many different styles of lacing and bordering giving every piece its own unique look and personality. Whereas there are also silk nightgowns that thrive on the grace that comes from their simplicity: they just simply help accentuate the wearer’s body and bring about a sophisticated look.
What To Wear With Silk Nightgowns
While many celebrities, more specifically the Kardashian clan, tend to opt for nightgowns without any added accessories or layering, if done right, layers can look stunning with a nightgown. Be it a leather or denim jacket on top, or a long sleeve mesh top underneath, the styling possibilities are truly endless. Accessories can also go a long way in really elevating your outfit. Simplistic and dainty jewelry can create a minimalistic look and chunky jewelry can elevate an otherwise simple nightgown. The same goes for shoes, the possibilities are endless. Heels can make it so much more formal whilst sneakers can add a fun casual look to the overall outfit. It all depends on preference, but one could tie almost anything with silk nightgowns to create a personalized aesthetic, and this is exactly why nightgowns are becoming increasingly popular especially amongst celebrities and influencers.
Do’s and Don’ts For Silk Nightgown Aesthetic
- Don’t layer too much. Adding too many layers will distract the attention from the main statement of the outfit, which is the silk nightgown. Any layers that are to be added should accentuate and highlight the nightgown rather than drowning it out.
- Do make sure to experiment with contrasting layers of clothing and different shades and tones of similar colors. While monochromatic outfits (for example a matching kimono to go with the nightgown) can look stunning, it will be so much more unique to try out new colors!
- Don’t wear nightgowns with too much lace. While lace can accentuate the silky material of nightgowns, it can also make it hard to layer items under or over the nightgown as lace tends to clash quite often with many different materials and textures.
- Finally, DO make sure to be confident! Being made of rather flimsy material, people can tend to feel underconfident and self-conscious while they are in the nightgown. But confidence makes 90 percent of your outfit!
