It’s no secret that a silk dress looks good whether it's dressed up or down. For example, you instantly glam it up by pairing it with strappy high heels and glitzy bijoux. On the flipside, you can channel a more laidback aesthetic by teaming it with some sneakers and a good ol’ tote bag. Not only is it a stylish go-to when you’re drawing blanks on what to wear, this piece also makes for a breezy alternative as silk fabric has temperature-regulating and moisture-wicking properties.
Celebrities, in particular, love sporting different iterations of this classic closet staple, whether it be at the beach, taking a stroll around the city, or attending fancy occasions. Below, we chart several celeb-approved OOTDs featuring a silk dress that will convince you to cop one if you haven’t already. Continue scrolling ahead!
LOOK: Silk Dress Outfit Ideas As Seen on Celebrities
1. Silk Midi Dress + Sandals
Donning bright colors at the beach is always a good idea and Angelina Cruz is here to prove it in a bubblegum pink silk slip dress. The Gen Z star’s frock highlighted the golden tan she gleaned from her sun-filled vacation and she chose to pair it with simple white sandals to complete her casual beach OOTD.
2. Silk Midi Dress + Gold Jewelry
Another celeb who we spotted in a silk dress ensemble was none other than Elisse Joson. The beach is practically the second home of the celebrity mom as she takes frequent trips to stunning seaside locales within the country and abroad. For a quick trip to Boracay, we found her glowing in a stunning orange and pink-hued dress made even more vibrant by the island’s golden hour lighting.
3. Silk Cowl Slit Dress + High Heels + Gold Jewelry
A silk dress can make for an elegant brunch ‘fit with your friends or your beau. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at Angel Dei who sported a cream-colored cowl silk dress that featured some leg room thanks to its thigh-high slit. She partnered it with a pair of mules in the same neutral shade as her dress and toted around a black Chanel flap bag to carry all her essentials.
4. Silk Halter Dress + Strappy Stilettos + Clutch + Jewelry
Sofia Andres was a vision in green during her recent trip to Geneva, Switzerland for an event sponsored by luxury watch brand Omega. During one of her evenings in the European city, the actress slipped on a sage silk dress with a halter neckline that showed off her back and arms. She continued to elevate her look by adding a pair of strappy silver stilettos and carrying a boxy marble clutch.
5. Silk Halter Dress + Knee-High Boots + Sunglasses
An alternative to the long silk dress is a mini one as seen here on Aika Agustin! Also featuring a halter neckline, the influencer’s dainty frock came in a baby blue shade that she juxtaposed with a pair of edgy knee-high black boots. Finishing off her look was a pair of black sunnies and a pearl necklace around her neck.
6. Silk Midi Dress + PVC Heels + Clutch
In case you’ve been searching for a wedding-guest-appropriate ensemble, look no further as Kelsey Merritt has shown us that a silk midi dress is all we need. Her earth-toned strapless number from Bec + Bridge fit her like a glove during model Josephine Skriver's wedding. Oh, and the dress even offered a slight hubadera feature with its back cutout! So cute!
7. Silk Midi Dress + Dainty Jewelry + Sunglasses + Woven Bag
It’s always a good idea to slip into a lightweight number while going boating to feel the fresh breeze throughout your body.

The 25-year-old didn’t fail to accessorize with her tortoiseshell frames, a layer of beaded jewelry, and a woven basket bag.
