Experimenting With Silk Scarves and Shawls
Some women like nothing better than to experiment with their clothing. It might date back to our childhood when we donned our mother’s and sisters’ clothing before walking back and forth in front of the large mirror. It could also spring from the hope that sooner rather than later we will come across a truly original and fabulous look. Whatever the source, mixing and matching different outfits is a great way to spend a depressing afternoon. It is particularly beneficial if you have a close group of friends there to join in the front while voicing their own expert opinion of what works.
One of the more obvious uses of silk scarves is as neck decoration. You can play with arranging different lengths of the silk fabric and tying them in different fashions to achieve a certain style. You can find a multitude of ways to achieve dramatic effects, creating classic and jazzy looks with a flip of the scarf and a twist of the knot. This is particularly true of long flowing silk scarves. Yet, this same length is also able to do so much more than this.
If you decide to see what scarves can do to pants or jeans, take a length and slip it through the belt loops. This immediately brightens up or refreshes the appearance of an old combination. You can thread the silken fabric completely through, tucking the ends in or thread partway and let the ends hang freely or tied at a select point. The same silk scarves can also come into play on the beach or at a nightclub. Take the lengthy material and fashion it into a halter-top. Alternatively, take long or small pieces and thread them in your hair in different styles to fashion a new do.
You should not forget to try playing around with hand-painted silk shawls and big square scarves. While you can play it safe by wrapping a shawl around your shoulders, why not let it drop down and form part of a layered look at your waist or hips. Wear them tied tightly over jeans or the skirt. Overlaying a dress, this creates a feminine and Bohemian look. On top of ragged and torn jeans, an elegant hand-painted silk shawl or lengthy hand-dyed scarf provides a funky contrast. This is ideal for those who are young.
These are but a few ideas you can try. Purchase a few of these fabulous silk scarves and shawls and let your imagination roam. The result will be a new look for every old outfit that is currently a part of your clothing collection.
