I have a major obsession with all things silk right now but especially silk pants. From a practical standpoint, silk pants are not. At all. But the fabric is so rich and drapes so nicely and, if they fit correctly, hides at least the minor sins. They are the perfect way to embrace the color trend or the blush trend or, if you just can't say goodbye to black even in the summer, to do it in a lighter way. So, while I will not be wearing these to the playground or to cook dinner in, I will definitely have these on for all my spring and summer social outings.
