Any girl’s closet is incomplete without a collection of scarves and shawls. Fashion’s most ‘in’ accessory for the year 2013, scarves and shawls are the hottest new wardrobe necessities. They perfectly represent modern fashion, combining convenience with elegance and branching across a variety of looks and styles. |
As with any fashion fundamental, scarves and shawls, too, have a set of basic must-haves – the standards and classics to complement each occasion. If you are yet to build your collection, this is where you should be looking to start.
Daring, dating, and deliciously dressy
whether it is ever so often or just once-in-a-way, these three serve as one of the basic categories of wardrobe organization. A girls’ night out, a romantic date, or maybe just a night of fine wine and dining – whatever be the occasion, getting dressy without a scarf this year seems a tad bit incomplete. Silk and pashmina shawls and scarves all serve the purpose well. Stock up on scarves and shawls in these materials in bold colours or patterns like red and paisley – they pair well with all sorts of dressy pieces, from dresses and blazers to skinny pants and stilettos.
So you’re stocked and ready for dressy nights – well, what about the times when you’d like to look all dressed up and stylish, but have nowhere to go? Ostentatious is not always appreciated, and you need to find the right balance between flamboyant and frumpy – where you strike the right chord of casual chic. Cashmere and pashmina scarves and shawls: double-toned in complementary shades, pale knit scarves, and even single-toned scarves in different colours but of less vibrant hues serve the purpose well, if you are looking to accessorize based on colour. A black pashmina is the best investment for times like these – it spells classy without being too dressy. These kinds of scarves and shawls go well with all sorts of casual outfits, from jeans right down to comfy sweats and leggings.
Eccentric and Exotic
With dressy and casual both covered, make some space in your closet for some downright outrageous! There will always be some time when you’re in the mood for fur, feathers and flamboyance. We say, why not add some scarves to complete that look? Bright sunny colours, wild prints, tassels and trinkets – all of it works. A couple of extravagant scarves never hurt anyone – not only do they serve to add some extraordinary to an ordinary outfit, but they also are the perfect add-on for an impulsive getaway to some exotic holiday location!
Mixing Business and Pleasure
While there is never a ‘too many’ with scarves and shawls, sometimes it helps to own a few that can multi-task. Stock up on a set that work well for work, as well as the impromptu dinner-and-drinks after. Silk and Georgette scarves in rich shades, as well as classic combinations such as black-and-white, pastel designs, geometric patterns and the like, all work perfectly in such a scenario.
