Turn to Neil Barrett's collection of dresses for your everyday staples. Available in a wide range of colors and styles, these dresses are built to last from materials such as silk. Look to Neil Barrett's range of dresses for a simple way to lift your outfit. Neil Barrett's dresses always provide a truly elevated take on classic staples. High-quality pieces that are made from silk require a little care and maintenance to keep them looking their best. If cared for properly, silk dresses can last for years. We recommend reading the care label on your silk garments to check for washing instructions, and if a ‘dry clean only’ symbol isn’t shown, then most should be suitable for hand washing. Dry cleaning silk garments isn’t always necessary, and most items are suitable for hand washing if done carefully. If you do decide to hand wash silk, use cool or lukewarm water, and add a small amount of detergent designed for delicate fabrics. Rinse away any soap, and remove any excess water without wringing or twisting. Leave to soak for a few minutes, then remove excess water by gently pressing instead of wringing or twisting as this can ruin the garment’s shape. Leave to air dry naturally as tumble drying silk can result in damage or shrinking. If the care label advises machine washing, then ensure a gentle, cold-water cycle is chosen. Store in a cool, dry place, ideally folded in a breathable cotton bag. For casual dresses that are sure to see you through the rest of the season, shop the collection today.
