Trend alert: Smouldering silks

December is a time to reflect, retrospect and rejoice as we look forward to ending the year with Christmas parties and of course, ring in the new decade. When the clock strikes at midnight on December 31st, we would imagine you’d want to shut it down in something sparkly and shiny, so we narrowed down the perfect trend for you to welcome 2020 in effortless style. 

When it comes to fashion trends sequins aren’t the only embodiment of all things shiny — if anything, most people even shy away from wearing head-to-toe sequins. Lucky for us, there’s an elegant, more feminine alternative in the form of lush silks and satins. The fabrics that were once solely associated with intimates and lingerie have taken over the runways of fashion weeks in recent years that still seem to be the reigning choice for Spring/Summer 2020, and rightly so. 

If you’re on the fence about embracing some shine, silk pieces are an ideal choice seeing as they deliver the subtlest glint of metallic in a way that drapes over the body ever so fluidly. Think camisoles, slip dresses with languid cowl necklines that will make you want to embrace this feminine trend repeatedly. As if the dainty and polished appeal wasn’t alluring enough, the fabric can make real a statement as the colour jumps out as you scroll through Instagram — now that’s all the more reason to opt for the trend. 

While the industry is replete with polyester versions of satin and silk that is obtained through merciless practices, at ZAVI these very materials are procured rather consciously. Our silk-satins come from naturally abandoned cocoons that in fact encourage the silk worm’s metamorphosis into a butterfly, making it a completely non-violent process. 

Go on and glimmer this holiday season with languid metallic options from our glamorous lineup of vegan silk dresses and tops that will be appropriate for everything from office Christmas parties to new year’s eve and everything in between.
