How to Choose the Best Silk Robes For Your Wedding

A long silk robe is one of the most stylish articles of clothing a man can own. It is an article of clothing that will last for years. However, a long silk robe does not come without its problems. Silk is one of the most fragile fibers on earth. Silk can break easily if the thread is pulled too tight or if it is exposed to perspiration while being made. Even though these things may concern some people, the reality is that there are ways around them.

The first thing you will want to consider with your long silk robe is if it has a great silhouette. Silky robes, a type of popular semi-formal attire that was incredibly popular in the late 19th century, were long sleeved shirts that often were open in the back. Silk robes also came in a variety of hues and patterns, and now they are available in a myriad of sizes and styles as well. If you want to make sure that your robe offers a great silhouette, then you will want to find one that has a square neckline and an open front.

One of the best ways to make a long silk robe have a great silhouette is to team it with a nice waist belt. Any type of waist belt will work; you just need to make sure that it has a contrasting color, or you can use a colored silk tie or cord. The color will be important because it will help draw the eye down the body and provide a better silhouette. However, you do not have to match your belt with your robe.

An alternative way to make a long silk robe have a good silhouette and a defined outline is to add a contrasting color to the bodice and then choose a contrasting color for the skirt. For example, if you are wearing a blue bodice with a red skirt, you can use either a red or blue tie or ribbon to accentuate the red or blue colors, which would be an excellent choice for the wedding day. Choose any type of color that will compliment your wedding dress; it does not have to be the same color as the wedding dress.

Next, we will talk about the sash and collar. The sash is usually fastened with a buckle, although you can also use a simple brass wire. If you want to be more traditional, then you can use a gold or silver chain to secure the sash to the waistline. If you do not want to fasten the sash, then you can leave the buckle loose so that it drapes down the back of the long silk robe. On the day of the ceremony, you can either leave the buckle alone, or you can put a matching broach or hair clip on the end of the sash for a unique look.

Lastly, the best silk robes feature real or artificial flowers. Silk flowers provide a very elegant and beautiful backdrop for any wedding. If you choose real flowers, then you must keep in mind the proper time to wash them. They must be washed before the actual ceremony in order to remove all of the additional starch, which can weaken the material. Be sure to use a gentle liquid soap such as Dove or Kiehl’s, and a soft brush in order to wash your real flowers, or choose one of the many designer rinse systems that are available to ensure that your flowers remain beautiful and fluffed up for the big day.
