Silk Scarves and Shawls – The Perfect Solution for Hiding Imperfections

Updated on August 24, 2015

Let’s face it. Nobody is perfect. Everybody possesses a body part or two he or she is not happy with. These are the types of imperfections we want to conceal from the public. At the same time, we don’t want to cover ourselves completely in anything that is either awkward or downright unflattering. If you are searching for a viable option, may I suggest dazzling and distinctive hand painted scarves and shawls made from 100% silk.  

Women with an obvious injection site scar may shy away from exposing their arms. Yet, there are times when you want to look exceptional. You want to wear that thin-strapped dazzling dress instead of that number with long sleeves. The way out is simple. Take your finest silk scarf or shawl and arrange it around the shoulders and upper arms. Voilà - no more visible imperfection.

If you have an unsightly scar from an operation, you may feel uncomfortable in public. People tend to stare covertly or openly at these body blemishes. If someone actually does ask about it, the result may be the conjuring up of many painful memories. Avoiding any such situation is possible easily and with style. Take a striking silk scarf or shawl. Drape it over your shoulders, waist or hips. The mark disappears from view letting you proudly display what you wish to be seen.

Port wine stains on the skin may also cause discomfort for some women. While many have no feelings of self-consciousness, others avidly work to disguise them. Make-up is often their tool-of-choice in this battle. This holds true particularly for those special nights on the town. If the location of such birthmarks is the neck region, there is a simple solution. Wrap a slim, becoming silk scarf around your neck. The sensuous feel and look of luxurious silk will banish any thoughts of what lies beneath from yours and other minds. If you feel defiant, try concealing it with a color that matches it in terms of shade and pattern.

Another skin issue that may affect your comfort level in public is vitiligo. This is a loss of skin pigmentation. It may start off small but can spread giving the skin affected a blotchy look. If you wish to conceal this manifestation, the answer is, once again, silk scarves or hand-dyed shawls. While these accessories may not be able to mask them all, they should cover up many of them. Wear scarves for everyday or for special occasions. There is one provision. Make sure the colors enhance your coloring and do not give you a washed-out look. This will ensure you bring out the best while disguising any skin blemishes.
