Go fashionable with silk trousers that are available in different and bright colours and patterns

Are you ready to slip into what might be this season’s most comfortable trend? With changing lifestyles, women have taken to wearing silk saris occasionally, and new Indian generation is opting for the new trendy western dresses in silk. A few high-profile designers have designed the silk trousers and pants, to give silk a high profile status. Now silk is not an outdated or occasionally wore garment, it is becoming the hot favourite in the fashion world.

Silk was seen in a lot of forms but now silk is used for making a rough and tough material resembling the one used to make jeans. To make a complete piece of silk trouser two full saris are blended together. The silk pants are a bit costlier as compared to cotton or other fibers, but have a lot more grace and style as compared to other fabrics.

“I was amused after learning that there are pure silk trousers in the market, it was hard to believe as I have only heard of silk saris and suits. I searched around different markets and then finally did online shopping for silk pants. I bought wide-legged silk pants and double layered silk pants from lastcall.com; it is really great to have silk pants in your wardrobe,” said Anusheela Das, who works in a lifestyle mall.
