Ladies’ Silk Scarves: Does Size Really Matter?

The traditional perception of women’s scarves is the small, triangular-folded section of cloth. It covers the head, barely. The woman wears it tightly knotted at the chin. This, as most females would admit, is not the most flattering of looks. It certainly does not convey grace or sophistication. While it is true, you can still purchase these small pieces of silk material, it is not the only style available. There is a wide range of styles, lengths, shapes and colors available on the market. They not only possess a fine beauty, they are also very versatile.

“Bigger is better” is not always the case. Yet, when it comes to accessorizing with silk scarves, this is indeed true. Draping your body in or with a long, luxurious length of silk scarf is the definitive peak in sophistication, stylishness and grace. On full-length silk scarves, the patterns play out in elaborate or refined designs. As a result, they stand out strikingly complementing the stylish and adding intensity to complement even the simplest of attire.

Why A Scarf?

The flowing scarf has more than a single use. The touch of elegance and the streamlining of the body are accessible to all. Silk scarves of that length are not restricted to a certain age group or body type. A woman of small stature gains the benefit of a silky illusion – that of extra height. As for age – wrapped around the neck, silk scarves conceal neck age lines and other so-called flaws.

There is also the versatility of use. With sometimes up to 80 inches of magnificent silky material to play with, anyone can achieve her own unique look. Let loose your imagination. Wear it in the true Grand Dame look made famous by Hollywood stars. Wrap it around your head allowing the excess to trail delicately over your shoulders and down your back. Alter the style of your dress by fastening it beneath the bust (a simple but effective Empire style) or wear it jauntily and loosely over the skirt adding layers. If you possess the longer lengths, you can model them into bolero-style jackets or stunning but simple halter-neck tops.

Another use of silks carves is the Sarong. Tie it firmly at the waist. It is perfect for after beachwear. It is also excellent for wearing to and from yoga, dance or exercise classes fitting well over leggings, footless tights or yoga wear. You should also not forget, that nothing drapes over bare or clothed shoulders than a silk scarf.

While you may still prefer to wear the short silk scarf on your head for specific occasions, do not ignore the power of its longer cousin. Braid the colorful item into your hair, allowing it to weave through and down onto your back. Use it to keep your hair tidy or make it into an eye-catching turban, but also make sure it adds to the overall desired effect.

What’s the Theme of Your Silk Scarf or Shawl?

Women often avoid wearing patterns on their clothing. It may be the result of fear of appearing garish or loud, unsuitable or simply unpractical. As a result, much of the clothing stuffed in closets and drawers tends to be insipid and lackluster. This bland tendency extends even to accessories. You will find purses, shoes and even silk shawls and scarves consisting of solid blocks of solitary shades.

When you dare to be different, you may run into a problem. Where do you start? How do you select a design that complements our fashion and personality? Consider the possibilities of the dramatic and distinctive hand painted designs of silk shawls or scarves. It turns any ho-hum silk scarf into stunning wearable art. Take the time, however, to locate the correct theme. It is well worth the endeavor. Consider the following to help guide you through the process.

Think about the things you like

Comfort is important. To arrive at this, consider themes that express these qualities. If you adore roses, wear roses. Spend some time looking at specific themes displayed on hand painted shawls and scarves. This will provide you with an indication of what does and does not appeal to you.

Modern or traditional?

Stop and consider your personality traits. What styles do you normally opt for? Do you categorize yourself as modern or traditional? If you are the former, consider, perhaps, an abstract pattern consisting of angles and straight lines. If you are a staunch traditionalist, you may prefer to choose flowers, birds or natural designs in either muted or bright shades.

Think about your favorite artists

More than likely, you will never discover the rendition of one of your favorite works of art among the distinctive designs of these hand painted silk shawls and scarves. You might, however, note a similarity or an echo of their style.

Think about what you don’t like

If you are stuck, try employing reverse psychology. Consider what you are absolutely not attracted to. Examine a wide range of scarves and shawls in this light. This method can help you rule out many themes leaving those you like.

Don’t forget that color matters

Be careful not to confuse the theme or design with color. Sometimes a design appears inappropriate because of the use of color. A flower motif, for example, appears quite different if portrayed in bold colors than in softer hues. Hunt around for a silk scarf or shawl that is the same theme but comes in a different shade.

As women’s silk scarves come in a wide range of different shapes and sizes, a number of looks can be achieved when they are used around the neck. For those who don’t like to feel restricted in this area, a longer, narrower scarf simply hung around the neck will look classy and elegant. Another alternative arrangement for longer scarves can be achieved by doubling them lengthwise, placing them around the neck and feeding the free ends through the loop which is created by the fold. As the fabric is not pulled tightly as would be the case if it were tied, many women find this an attractive and comfortable style of wearing.

Simple dresses can be given a new and highly fashionable look by using a long silk scarf to create an empire line, and this works particularly well for women with pear-shaped figures. Even the plainest grey, black or navy dress can be utterly transformed when a scarf of a coordinating color is used in this way.
