With a Stunning Silk Scarf, You’ll Never Be Left Out in the Cold

Updated on August 25, 2015

It does not appear to be a large amount of heat that dissipates from the top of our heads, yet, it is significant enough. It makes you wonder why so few people do anything about it. It is common for people to bundle up in winter, piling layers of clothing on all parts of the body. Yet, somehow or other, many ignore the head. They fail to protect the sole region where most of our body heat can escape.

There are several reasons why many women are reluctant to cover up. Winter headwear is notoriously unfashionable. While, it is true, some people loathe wearing hats, others avoid winter hats because they are bulky. Still other women avoid winter hats because, no matter what type they try on, they simply look frumpy. The same thing may occur when they shop around for spring or summer headwear.

Admittedly, winter hats are the worst. The tight, sensible and warm woolen varieties cause chaos with those carefully styled hairdos. Even a flattering hat can cause damage leaving you with the options of going hatless or leaving the hat on all day. Yet, there is an ideal alternative. You can prevent heat loss from your head without having a bad hair day. You can also do so while preserving an appearance that is both fashionable and sophisticated. Opt for an eye-catching hand-painted silk scarf!

Silk is the ideal fabric to select. Unlike other manufactured or natural materials, silk is blessed with many wonderful qualities. Ask yourself what forms the linings of the highest quality gloves and jackets. Why, it is silk, of course. Even the jackets worn by pilots have a silk lining. These are not merely to prevent chafing from leather or wool but to protect the aviators from extremes in cold weather. Why silk? It possesses the ability to adapt to the temperature of the season. It is cool in summer and warm in winter.

Silk is a natural choice for winter wear. It is not only warm but also extremely lightweight. As a result, it does not mash and destroy the ideal hairdo. Simply purchase a suitable length of silken scarf, wrap it around your head. You will be warm and look great. What are even better is the variety of ways you can position it and the multitude of colors and patterns from which to choose.

This is without referring to style. Silk scarves, particularly those that are hand-painted, handcrafted and designed, are a work of art unto themselves. Their unique designs place them hands-above any manufactured product. Simply wearing one adds a certain allure while indicating luxurious grace. Grace Kelly wore silk scarves to great effect. Her style and elegance are byword in the world of fashion. Would she have donned a grannyish woolen hat when a fabulous silk scarf would have served the purpose with taste and class? Of course not and neither should you. There is no need to sacrifice comfort, practicality and style on the cold altar of winter.

      I have gained a true appreciation for silk scarves since begining to read your work on the subject. From the hard working little worms to the masterful talents of the designers. I am amazed by the patterns and graceful flow of the material; delicate yet powerful, like the perfect woman. Thank you for offering these many selections.

      Up and shared.
