What is silky soft twill? It’s a fabric so fabulous that we’ve become a little obsessed, sprinkling it throughout our Spring 2016 collection.
Though it’s made from bleached wood pulp, the fabric – known generically as lyocell – has an amazing hand feel, like sand-washed silk. It’s in the same family as rayon and offers the same beautiful drape, but typically with less wrinkling and a bit more substance. With the way it takes to dye, the fabric also makes a great, lightweight stand-in for denim.
A silky soft twill boyfriend shirt makes a 90s-inspired slip dress daytime appropriate for a patio brunch with the squad, or pop it over a swimsuit and shorts if you’re headed to the beach. Pair a twill crop top with your favorite maxi skirt and gladiator sandals for your favorite music festival, or a trip to a street fair.
We love silky soft twill this season because the lightweight construction is perfect for spring weather, and the fabric’s versatility makes it ideal for any event on your social calendar.
We’re trying it in casual dresses and moto jackets, and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on it. Once you do, let us know what you think with a comment here or a pic on Instagram with #ExpressLife.
