When it comes to breathable and lightweight materials, silk is always a go-to. With its breathability, silk can help regulate your body temperature and even has moisture-wicking properties, making it perfect for keeping you dry and comfortable in the summer.

The lightweight fabric can be spotted in a good number of SS19 collections, from emerging brands such as Doublet and Bananatime to luxury fashion houses such as Prada. Given its associations with luxury, copping that perfect silk piece might mean breaking your piggy bank to get the right item, but you’ll end up with a garment that’ll last you a good while.

If you’re in the market for some shopping recommendations, we’ve hand-picked some of the best silk pieces available online from luxury retailers Farfetch and SSENSE, and streetwear retailers such as Caliroots. Our picks include a pair of neck-breaking silk shorts by Doublet, a CMMN SWDN see-through shirt for extra breeziness, and, of course, a Prada all-over-print option. And if you’re looking for something more affordable, scroll to the bottom of the list to shop our alternative picks.
