Don’t Get Caught Out Without a Silk Scarf or Shawl

Updated on August 24, 2015

It is a constant problem. We know it is too warm outside to wear a cardigan, jacket or sweater refusing to consider that the temperature isa going to drop as the day becomes evening. And here we are – in a strapless dress or short-sleeve top shivering from the cold. Avoiding this is simple. As you head out the door, grab a silk shawl or scarf.

This is a common problem as the seasons turn and warm days come for spring, summer and autumn. You want to be warm, but you do not want to have to lug around anything heavy such as a jacket or coat. You can always take a sweater, knotting it about or over your shoulders. Even tying it about your waist is all right – if you are hiking or dressed casually. This look certainly does not cut it if you are dressed for an elegant dinner party.

The solution for when the weather seems fickle and unpredictable – silk shawls and scarves.  The sheer, smooth fabric is lightweight, folding up and fitting easily into your pocketbook or purse. You can also incorporate it into your total appearance.

The marvelous thing about silk shawls and scarves is that you can wear them on a wide variety of body parts. As a result, you can ornamentally drape or tie it, but when it becomes cooler, you can envelop your arms and shoulders to shut out the chill.  For example, you might weave it into your hair or use it to decorate a hat. You can also secure it around your hips or waist placing it atop a pair of pants or skirt.  When the temperature cools off, undo the silk shawl or scarf and drape it around your neck, arms or shoulders to keep you cozily warm. 

Whether you carry your elegant silk shawl or scarf or simply prefer to drape it nonchalantly across your shoulders or arms, it inevitably will endow your overall look with that extra touch of allure and arresting appeal.  While an unwieldy jacket tossed across your arm just takes up space, a magnificent hand-painted silk shawl or handmade scarf will appear to be what it actually is - a dramatic accessory.

No doubt, fashion and its appeal will draw you to prefer these magnificent. The vibrant hues, the luxurious fabric and the stunning, unique patterns on the hand-painted examples of women’s scarves and shawls single them out as the only choice. It is sooo easy to be warm, comfortable and stylishly spectacular.
