Silk Scarves: To Wear Or Not To Wear?

Updated on January 18, 2010

Silk scarves are one of today's hottest items, and with any fashion, comes controversy.There are some people who are dead set against the idea of wearing silk scarves, because of the price and the fact that they do not keep people as warm as other types of scarves. I would like to discuss the pros and cons of silk scarves, and let you decide for yourself whether or not they are worth the investment.

One of the first criticisms of silk scarves that I would like to talk about is the price. Silk has historically been a material that has fetched a high price. So this issue of the price of silk scarves is nothing new. Keep in mind that you can always dress fashionably without going over your budget and without going into a large amount of debt. You can find silk scarves for a cheap price if you look hard enough, and the best place to find silk scarves for a very cheap price is on the internet. I would bet that you can find many sorts of silk scarves, whether it be a mens silk scarf or a designer silk scarf, on the internet for maybe 10% of what you would find at a retail store. Clearly, the internet is a winning bet when it comes to buying scarves.

The other main criticism of silk scarves is that they sacrifice utility for fashion.

This may be true, but in my opinion, no one is buying silk scarves to protect against blizzards! They are obviously designed for fashion, and I see nothing wrong with buying something simply for the sake of fashion. If you want to stay warm, then buy a bulky coat. If you want to look good, then obviously silk scarves are the way to go.

There are so many designs that you can find for scarves that you will never ever run out of ideas for matching with the rest of your outfits. My recommendation is that you always shop around, because you will find something that you like.

In conclusion, while it is understandable to be against silk scarves, there is really no reason to do so once you have considered all of the information. Always inform yourself when it comes to buying things online or offline.

      Let us spend time

      translating love,

      me in the moelleux

      glances of your eyes,

      you bent in the wonder of

      our passionne' words shared.

      Let our most intimate thoughts

      drift poetically from our lips to mingle

      with the steam vapors rising from our

      cafe' au laits at the Les Deux Magots.

      Beneath that vast awning

      that opens on the dawning

      of a busy day along

      the Boulevarde St. Germaine.

      sharing kisses on the terrace

      as natives stroll unembarrassed

      past this well-known

      gathering place for lovers.

      We have a lifetime to

      hurry back to... but not today,

      let us pencil in tomorrow,

      simply sharing a Sunday for two

      in the parfait shade of

      Square Du vert Galant where

      wine, cheese and embraces

      will create a picnic of the senses.

      Let us dally until sunset and then...

      wend our way up Mountmartre Hill,

      dancing through the white

      spots of streetlights,

      basking in its ancient charms

      then pattering eagerly

      down the steep shadowed

      staircase to my studio apartment

      where I will finger-paint sourire's

      on your most sumptuous parts.....

      " Later, while she sleeps

      I will appease what demands

      me to satisfy my deepest hunger,

      this infernal craving that never seems

      to be the extinguishing of life."
