Soft, stylish, and elegant—what more could you ask for?

Personally, I'm a steadfast believer in the idea that in order to make any piece of clothing better, you've gotta make it silk. What can I say? Silk is the king in the hierarchy of fabrics—it's effortlessly elegant, super soft to the touch, and it just makes everything look a little bit better.

When it comes to your rotation of shirts, having some go-to silk options in the mix is a must. Cotton isn't going to cut it for formal events, most of the time, but silk certainly will. And even if you're dressing for the every day, silk shirts have a way of making you look more intentional, more put-together, more chic and stylish. You'll love wearing your silk shirts, too; getting one might be a bit of an investment, but for the feel of that soft, luxe fabric, it's more than worth it. Whether you need some shirts to pair with jeans or you need some shirts for dressier vibes, a silk shirt is the way to go.

A basic, minimalist silk shirt at its finest. This is a versatile option that you can wear year-round, buttoned or unbuttoned, with jeans or dress pants or shorts.

For that "I found this in my dad's closet with the rest of his clothes from the '70s" look, Urban Outfitters has you covered. These vintage, renewed pieces are one of a kind, so each one is unique.

Silk, as it turns out, pairs very well with Burberry's iconic check print.

Perfectly relaxed, this jacquard silk shirt is the very vision of understated luxury. It'll last you years and years, and you'll find it hard not to reach for this simple, elegant piece every day.

What's more summery than a cotton and silk shirt? With white details and a chest pocket, this plus you plus a beer plus a sunny afternoon is the perfect combo.

Casablanca does silk shirts like no other—just look at their vibrant prints and super soft fabric if you don't believe me.

For the guys looking for something so chic it styles itself, Banana Republic has you covered. This geometric-print silk shirt really just needs some black pants and shoes, and you're all set.

Is it really summer if you don't wear Tommy Bahama? The brand known for its easy, breezy shirts does a damn good silk variation.

Celine Homme's signature edgy-yet-effortless style makes this shirt an infallible option. Just be prepared for some sarcastic "What brand is that?" questions.

Part floral-print, part animal-print, this silk camp shirt truly is the best of both worlds.
