How to Become a Quick Change Artist With Fabulous Silk Scarves and Shawls

Updated on August 24, 2015

Today women seem to run not stop from the moment they get up to the moment they lay their heads on the pillow. Children, home, work and a social schedule keep us all hopping with never a thought to spare for what we should be wearing. You may not be able to do much about your schedule, but you can be prepared for any occasion using the ultimate in slight-of-hand accessories – silk scarves and shawls.

Silk Scarves and Shawls

Handmade silk shawls and scarves are unique. Their patterns and distinctive designs are the product of meticulous craftsmanship and creative minds. Melding the silky, elegant fabric with the superb design is ideal for your purpose – to create within minutes a completely different look. The combination of the luxurious fabric, stunning colors and the exquisite designs results in its ability to make any mundane outfit spectacular for those occasions when you need to dress up. If you keep 1 or 2 scarves in the glove compartment of your car or tucked away in your purse, you can be ready to face almost any wardrobe challenge.

After Work

It has been another hard day at work. You must attend a social function afterwards. How are you going to make it home, take care of a few matters and change in time to arrive timely at the event? If you are wearing a well turned-out dress, skirt ensemble or pant suit, this becomes simple. With the right silk scarf or shawl, your daily work garb disappears. In its stead is the ideal outfit for a dinner party or an evening out at a fine restaurant or theatre.

For Those Special Occasions

You can dress up more than your average work clothes. If you remove the jacket of a smart business suit, change blouses (or not) and drape over your shoulders a tasteful scarf, you have a new casual look that is both attractive and interesting. It is suitable for those occasions when you want to dress-up a little, but not too much. The warmth of the silk against your skin will keep out the cold as well. It is a practical yet stylish substitute for a jacket or sweater. Changing your look this way is also as quick as a Magician’s sleight of hand.

Impulsively Yours

Scarves and shawls are also your best friend when you impulsively decide to change your plans. When a leisurely weekend drive into the country approaches evening, you may suddenly want to dine out or drop into an upscale dining or drinking establishment. You do not want to appear underdressed. If you have a silk scarf or shawl handily tucked away in your car or purse, you are prepared. Simply unfold, shake the wrinkles out, drape according to your whims and wear.

The same rule applies if you are caught-out on holidays. A spontaneous acceptance of an invitation – with no time to return to your hotel, or a decision to enter a place of worship could be a problem. It is not if you have a handmade silk scarf or shawl on hand. With flair and élan, you turn your ensemble into elegant apparel or a somber and respectful outfit.

This is the versatility of fine silk scarves and shawls. The myriad of colors, designs and lengths makes it simple to have a completely different look at your disposable within minutes. The ability to store them easily simply adds to the richness that is silk. Keep a few on hand and you will truly be ready for just about any type of clothing emergency.
