A wardrobe essential must-have
A silk blouse is a wardrobe workhouse every woman should have in her closet for those days when you need to look polished but don’t want to try too hard. It’s the ultimate versatile piece that can be dressed down with simple jewelry or dressed up under a blazer or over a dress. It effortlessly transitions from a meeting to date night and won’t look out of place at the grocery store. Even better? Since it’s lightweight, a silk blouse is comfortable 12 months out of the year—just layer it with a sweater in the winter or at a chilly office.
The one downside to silk is caring for it. Silk is undeniably a luxe fabric and drapes beautifully, but you usually have to pay to have it dry cleaned. You can’t just toss silk in the wash with the rest of your tops. Unless of course, you have the Quince washable stretch silk blouse. It can be laundered on the delicate cycle and it’s finally back in stock. So nab one in your favorite color before it sells out again. (We also named Quince washable silk pajamas as some of the comfiest.)
The Quince washable stretch silk blouse
If you’re not familiar with Quince’s brand, they’re a reputable direct-to-consumer San Francisco-based website (like Everlane) that sources high quality and sustainably made fabrics like silk, cashmere, and alpaca wool straight from the factory to consumers. Quince also carries lines of linen bedding (read our review!), sheets and fine jewelry.
Quince is loved for keeping prices low and quality high—and their washable silk blouse is a perfect example. It’s no surprise the timeless blouse has a tendency to sell out every year.
The washable stretch silk blouse is made from a blend of 90 percent mulberry silk double georgette and 10 percent spandex, so it has that luxurious silk look and feel with just the slightest stretch. That stretch is ultra important to prevent annoying button gaping across the chest. Silk also makes the perfect material for pillowcases.
How does the blouse feel on? Lightweight and cool, but with enough heft to feel the quality of the silk. The classic collar looks sophisticated and layers well under a sweater or cardigan. Buttons at the sleeves let you adjust the length.
How to wash it
As promised, this silk blouse doesn’t need to be dry cleaned. Instead, you can hand wash it at home or put it in the washing machine on the delicate cycle with cold water and a gentle laundry detergent. Hang dry it and give it a quick steam or once over with a cool iron to remove any wrinkles. Voila, your silk blouse is clean and ready for Zoom.
Where to buy it
The Quince washable stretch silk blouse is only available on onequince.com. As of publishing, it’s available in sizes XS through XL and in five colors: black, ivory, navy, military olive, and washed blue. Sizing is true to fit. Shipping and returns are both free. The blouse costs $59.50.
And, if you’re curious, Quince breaks down their manufacturing costs so you can see just how much it cost them to make the blouse and pass the savings down to you. Around sixty dollars for a high-quality silk blouse that’s easy to wash? Adds to cart.
