Silk Scarves and Accessories
One of the most precious fabrics is silk. There are very good manmade fabrics mimicking the properties of silk. However, there is no exact copy of the natural sheen of real silk.
Women who are accustomed to wearing real silk scarves know this is a perfect summer fabric. A summer silk scarf feels light and cool around the neck. No woman wants to start perspiring in this area due to an inappropriate fabric. Silk is completely natural so it is porous and allows the skin to breath. A skin that breathes does not become wet with perspiration.
Another reason why so many women have opted for natural silk scarves over many generations is because this fabric is very soft. Due to the softness of silk it falls, drapes and flows very easily.
There are silk scarves that are small enough to be tied into a handkerchief knot. This type of scarf is often used to introduce a pop of color to an outfit. It is also chosen when a woman wants to soften her face with a soft shade of rose. On the other hand it is a very effective means of highlighting a tan if a white silk scarf is worn close to the face.
Many women like the boho look but don’t want to look like full-on hippies. A style secret is to wear only one or two boho items. An interesting and long silky scarf is a subtle way to look more boho. A long silk scarf can be wrapped around your neck to hang down in front or you can wrap the scarf so one side hangs in front and the other at the back.
Due to the high quality of silk scarves they can be worn with any kind of handbag. If the handbag suits your outfit it will suit the scarf. The same rule applies to shoes and jewelry. A great fashion tip is not to wear your silk scarf. This may sound strange but if you tie a silk scarf to your handbag it is a different way to give your outfit the benefit of silk and a particular color or print. A small scarf can also be casually placed in a jacket pocket for a small pop of color and class.
Silk is precious because it is the product of the toil of billions of earthworms. It is believed the Chinese were the first to discover this amazing product. Through the ages, silk scarves were a sign of prestige and quality and this continues to the modern day. A pure silk scarf teemed with a quality handbag and shoes means style. This rule applies whether your scarf and other accessories are casual or smart.
