Statement Pieces for Summer and Beyond

The sunshine is out and we’re all dreaming of the long, hazy summer days ahead. With beach holidays in the diary, wedding RSVPs sent and music festivals booked, it’s the perfect opportunity to start planning some fabulous outfits.

However, in a world of fast fashion and seasonal wardrobes, here at Wildcard Silks we are all about seeking out top-quality, long-lasting pieces that work for multiple occasions. Our two new floral designs are just that – the perfect statement piece to pop in your bag and bring along to a party whatever the season.

Rhododendron Magnificum

Inspired by a rare sighting of the Rhododendron Magnificum from Trelissick Gardens in Cornwall, this beautiful long silk scarf is printed with a botanical drawing that was created using watercolours and inks. The bold and striking design makes it the perfect addition to a simple and classy wedding outfit, adding a splash of colour around your shoulders. For festivals and road trips, you could also wear it as a headband or tied around your waist.

Leucadendron

This pretty design was drawn from a Leucadendron ‘Safari Sunset’ flower, found in a Cornish cottage garden. Using 100% ethically sourced silk, it is the perfect size to drape around your neck at a garden party to keep off the evening chill, or wrap around your waist as a sarong on the beach.

Dragonfly

The Dragonfly long silk scarf was inspired by at a day at Glendurgan Gardens in Cornwall, when a Southern Hawker dragonfly landed on a leaf by the pond. It’s colours were so beautiful! This is a lovely accessory to wear tight around your neck, tucked into your belt or casually placed over your shoulders for evening wear.
