My love affair with chiffon shawls started in India when I was shopping the textile market for shawls and wraps that were not warm and heavy but rather light and cool. Seeing the street stores and vendors displaying the colorful chiffon silk scarves and wraps in all their splendor and tourists draping these in varying styles and posing in front of big mirrors was mesmerizing. Soon I was caught in this shopping charade and it became a reality on a daily basis. I could not get enough of the affordable solid chiffon scarves their light silken feel was divine against my skin and they made my simple jeans and shirt outfit look so stylish and amazing.
One day I wore a black silk long dress and went shopping once again to the same textile market and realized that the simple black dress took a facelift with the designer chiffon scarves with inlaid paisley / floral designs. Some were unicolor some scarves were two tone and others a myriad of pastel and dark colors blended in perfect harmony. Being a fashion designer those shawls took over my senses and I was in love and shopped for the most amazing silk shawls unique and silken in their designer appeal.
Now it’s been years since that love affair with chiffon silk scarves shawls and wraps started and even to date I have a section in my wardrobe with beautiful spring shawls and scarves to add that touch of class to my casual and dressy outfits. I guess it is an affair that is everlasting for me. Try it and you will be hooked too as the silk scarves have that beautiful tantalizing appeal and really give a facelift to your spring and summer clothes.
