Why Investing In A Shawl, Scarf or Wrap Is Good.

I have seen a few around town, and ladies we are talking about the ‘Poncho’. Who knew that it would make such a strong comeback in the world of fashion in 2014. If there was one thing to covet from the fall and winter 2014 fashion runways, it would be the ‘Burberry Prorsum’s cozy Cashmere and Wool blanket’ for only $1,860.00.

 

But not to worry if that is out of your budget, because ‘Shawls’, ‘Wraps’ or ‘Scarves’ really should be a staple item in every woman’s closet.  We love them because they have so many uses and they come in numerous fabric options and styles along with being an affordable accessory item. Depending on what type it is, a shawl, scarf or a wrap, it can be a great replacement for a jacket or a light weight coat. Plus it adds interesting colour and texture to any outfit.

Since scarves are worn next to your face, make sure that you buy a scarf that compliments your hair, eyes and skin colour.  It will reduce the appearance of any skin imperfections and your skin will glow. The other important element to consider when buying a scarf is the scale and thickness, because it will add bulk and highlight the scale of your body.

This is especially important for petite and small boned women.  A super-chunky knit works beautifully on a larger and taller frame because it balances those proportions. However, you never want to look like you are drowning in your own scarf, so if you have a tiny frame choose a thin to medium knit texture.
An average to full body type can handle a thicker and larger scale of scarf, but if you are a plus-size petite you should opt for a medium scarf style.
If you are a large busted woman wearing scarves and wraps still work for you, but we must remember to wear them on an angle and not carry the majority of the bulk over the bust line area.

The fabric choices to choose from are vast, from Cashmere, Silk, Wool, Cotton to the desired Pashmina, but remember that Pashmina is actually Fine Cashmere. Pashmina is a name given to Cashmere yarn that is 12 to 16 microns in thickness. There is no such material as a Viscose or Silk Pashmina.
  • Real Pashmina is always made with Cashmere and it may be blended with Silk or Cotton for design or different price points.
  • Real Pashmina is not cheap, therefor there is no ‘Real Pashmina’ for $10.00 – anywhere.
  • Real Pashmina becomes much softer with time as it absorbs moisture from your skin.
  • Real Pashmina is not only soft, but it also gives you warmth as well. Plus Real Pashmina only has a shine when Silk is blended with the Cashmere.

 

The rules of ‘Dressing Well’ never fade because it is always about Line, Proportion and Balance and once you have conquered those three, you are set for life.
