Hand Painted Silk Scarves and Shawls – Fashionable the World Over

Updated on January 2, 2012

If you are looking for absolute versatility, you cannot go wrong with silk shawls and scarves. These beautiful but practical accessories can be worn for special events, nights out, office outfits or as part of a casual ensemble, dressing up a simple jean-sweater combination. Silk scarves are easy to wear and add a sumptuous touch no matter what the occasion or outfit. They are always great whether in your closet or as part of your dream or business trip.

Taking off to somewhere beyond our normal boundaries can be bewildering. It causes a sensation of panic when it comes to wondering what to take. Sure, we can look on the net for the weather report, but we still need to pack some things that will be culturally responsive, able to be suitable in all kinds of weather, light enough to not tip the scales in an expensive way. The last thing we need is some bulky item weighing us down in more ways than one. The clothing must mix and match well with the accessories.

Silk is the perfect answer. It is light as any feather. You can fold it up or place it flat in your luggage. Silk scarves are also ideal for wearing on the trip as well. It is perfect for cutting down on any drafts or chills. Yet, the marvel of silk extends beyond its practicality. Silk speaks the universal language of fashion.

Whether you visit cosmopolitan London or romantic Paris, sophisticated Tokyo or stylish Rome or even spend your time in some remote rural village, silk scarves and shawls are accepted – provided you adapt them to the given cultural usage. Moreover, wearing them is not only up to standard but also fashionable. Silk scarves and shawls have comprised part of the fashion statement of many women over the past several decades. They have graced the fashionable streets of ultra chic Paris and the dazzling beaches of many a Caribbean or South Pacific island. This has made this use of silk fabric one of the world’s most enduring accessories.

Whether you are wearing a company look or on a pleasure cruise, most women still want to make their own fashion statement. Who wants to be a drone or a clone? For those who yearn for sophistication, style and glamour only the best will create this effect. Is it any wonder, then, why women turn to celebrated hand-painted silk scarves and shawls? These examples of quality and craftsmanship align with the absolute vitality of color and pattern. If you have a trip planned, you could not make a better choice.

      Ohhhhhh, I really like this hub. I have a drawer full of silk scarves. I guess you would call me a collector. I mostly wear them as a head band. Occasionally, I will toss one around my neck to keep out the cold. I really enjoyed the photos.....makes me want to buy more!
