How to Style a Silk Shirt

We present to you five creative ways to style and transform our Banarasi textiles into stunning silk shirts.

  • The Classic Way: Begin your journey by selecting an Ekaya Banarasi fabric that resonates with your personal style. Opt for a versatile design that can seamlessly transition from day to night with effortless ease. Rely on our expert stitching services to ensure a tailored fit that you cherish for years to come. Pair the silk shirt with well-fitted jeans or tailored trousers, and voilà – you've crafted a chic silk shirt that's uniquely yours.
  • A Bohemian Touch: For a bohemian-inspired silk shirt, choose a vibrant and intricately patterned Banarasi fabric from Ekaya's collection of handwoven fabrics to customise. Have the fabric cut into a loose, flowy shirt silhouette and pair it with a maxi skirt or wide-leg palazzo pants to ignite a care-free mood. Add boho accessories like layered necklaces and fringe details to accentuate the look. 
  • For Formal Outings: Transform Ekaya's unstitched Banarasi fabric into a sophisticated workwear piece. Select a fabric with a subtle pattern or solid colour to match the environment of a professional setting. Tailor the fabric into a well-fitted silk shirt, perfect for pairing with tailored trousers or a pencil skirt. Or layer your Banarasi silk shirt under a blazer. Stand out at the office with a unique silk shirt that combines tradition with contemporary elegance.
  • Embrace Elegance: Express your feminine side by crafting a silk shirt from Ekaya's unstitched Banarasi fabrics rather than buying a silk shirt online. Choose soft pastel hues or floral patterns to enhance the feminine charm. Have your desired fabric cut into a shirt pattern that complements a flared midi skirt or tailored shorts. Finish the look with delicate jewellery and heels for an ensemble that exudes feminine grace and effortless style.
  • Unleash Casual Glam: Embrace casual glam by creating a statement silk shirt from Ekaya's unstitched Banarasi fabrics. Opt for a fabric with bold patterns or contrasting colours. Craft a relaxed-fit shirt and pair it with distressed denim or chic culottes. Add a leather jacket and bold accessories to elevate your casual look to make a glamorous statement.
  • Festive Glam: Pairing a silk shirt with a lehenga can create a stylish and contemporary look that gracefully combines traditional and modern aesthetics. This combination is particularly suited for events like weddings, festive celebrations, or other formal occasions. Choose a silk shirt in a contrasting colour to your lehenga. When deciding on the neckline, think boat necks, V-necks, or high necks. Ultimately, choose a neckline that complements the design of your lehenga. Further play with the sleeves to match the mood of the look that you are going for. You can either tuck in your silk shirt into the lehenga or wear it in a crop style. While tucking in gives a traditional update,  a crop style adds a modern touch.Choose accessories that complement the outfit, such as statement earrings, a maang tikka, or bangles. Ensure that the accessories enhance the overall aesthetic. 

One can also pair a silk shirt with their favourite saree. Pairing a silk shirt with a saree in a retro style can create a chic and nostalgic look that draws inspiration from past eras. Choose to design silk shirts with high necks or oversized collars for a touch of vintage sophistication. For the sleeves, experiment with styles like bell sleeves or puffed sleeves, which were popular in the 1970s. You may also tie a pussy-bow at the neckline of your silk shirt. Further, add retro accessories such as large hoop earrings, statement bangles, or vintage-inspired brooches. As for hairstyles, traditional braids, loose curls, or a sleek bun can complement the Banarasi silk shirt beautifully, depending on the mood of the look that you are going for. Whether you prefer a traditional or modern look, there are endless possibilities to showcase the beauty of Banarasi silk.
