Silk Scarves and Shawls to Solve the Bridesmaid Dilemma
It is her day. She wants it to stand out – to be unique in as many ways as possible. The numbers are against her on this. Weddings occur every minute of every day globally. No matter what your preference – fairy-tale Cinderella gown or modern day chic, you can add that extra flair and élan using hand-painted silk shawls and hand-dyed scarves. What’s more is the statement you will make will be unique.
It is rarely easy to choose a bridesmaid dress suitable for all. The Bridal party consists of women of all ages, shapes and sizes. They differ in their personal preference and their skin tones and complexions are widely disparate. What is suitable to one, clashes with another; one individual’s predilection is at odds with another’s. The whole exercise can be one of futility and frustration as each member want to look their best at the expense of the others.
There is a solution to this chaos. It is simple, effective and very economical. It allows each member of the Bridal Party to express her individuality without interrupting the overall uniformity. This is employing silk scarves and/or shawls.
How To Use Silk Scarves And Shawls Effectively
Take a basic A-line or simple shift-style bridesmaid dress. Add a scarf or shawl. The look will be original and individual. Why?
- Each scarf is different
- Each is hand crafted and dyed
- A variety of colors allows you to select ones that will match and complement
- Scarves and shawls are applicable in a variety of ways
- These accessories can complement dresses and compliment body shapes
From Theory To Practice - Using The Scarves and Shawls
Select the dresses and then pick shawls or scarves that harmonize with the apparel. Flowers and pastel colors are apt. Next, talk to your bridesmaids. Let them decide how they want to wear the accessory.
For those self-conscious of their fleshy upper arms, suggest they drape a luxurious piece of silk over the shoulders and across the arms. If someone wants to accentuate their tiny waist, indicate she should tie a frothy, flowing scarf around their middle or drape it from the waist. If the hips are at issue, create the perfect illusion by tying the scarf beneath the breasts, creating an Empire Waistline.
With issues of skin color, tone or complexion, silk scarves and shawls can also come to the rescue. Select a neutral shade such as ivory for the color of your bridesmaid dresses. You then select shawls or scarves to complement the dress yet flatter the skin tones of each bridesmaid.
Silk scarves and shawls may seem a simple solution, but they are extremely effective. These beautiful wearable artworks consisting of 100% pure silk are crafted to high standards. They will ensure your wedding day will be memorable, the style and grace of all its female participants shining through to give it that certain unique quality no one will be able to forget.
