Luxurious silk for under $200

By Andrea Michelle for Katies

Princesses wear silk, right? Well, that’s how it always seemed in fairy tales, especially when there was a handsome single Prince within earshot. They were swathed in the stuff. So since I was a little girl I was gunning to drape myself in the luxurious fabric too.

My very first outfit made from silk was in Year 10. Silk taffeta to be specific. Electric blue silk taffeta with padded shoulders a low drop waist and a huge ruffle. I was hoping to channel Diana Ross in the video clip to ‘Chain Reaction’ but instead, my school formal frock looked more like a big shapeless sack with an awkward rah rah skirt tacked onto the bottom. The dressmaker in our suburb really wasn’t that much chop. Regardless, I felt like a Princess because: silk!

Fast forward a few decades and I still adore wearing silk. Not silk taffeta, but feather soft, luxe, draped pieces that whisper effortless, classic style. Yet quality 100% silk garments are so expensive, it’s not a luxury that can be worn everyday.

Enter Katies – galloping in like a Prince to rescue this fashion conundrum – with a new capsule range of 100% silk dresses and kaftan tops, priced from $89.95 – $129.95.
