Here are some guidelines in choosing an evening shawl wrap appropriate for the season in yarn, degree of warmth and protection & craftsmanship . Most importantly women not only have to keep the season and seasonal colors in mind but also have to ensure the evening wrap is a good compliment to the dress they intend to wear it with in terms of style and texture. That’s a task so designers at Yours Elegantly give you some guidelines to make evening shawl shopping easy and pleasurable.
Start with the dress and keep in mind the season at the same time. For spring and summer try light chiffon shawls, silk scarves and embellished evening shawls. They have transparence and your skin showing through as the wrap drapes over your neck and shoulders looks alluring. These are wraps for just lightly covering your shoulders and arms for style and elegance. Some chiffon wraps have crystal elegance or a hand painted flowery vine or dragonflies … many designs to choose from and customize with colors. Another good evening wrap /prom wrap is the metallic netted evening shawls or even light net triangle wraps. The key is to find the look you are aiming for.
If you do not want a transparent airy wrap try a silk pashmina which is silken light and drapes beautiful over an evening dress. The silk gives it enough of a sheen to look beautiful with your evening dress. Solid shawls can be used with a dress that is pretty busy and adorned with beads and sequins. If the dress is simple elegance make the shawl a focal point by choosing a designer shawl with flowery vines, hand crafted designs or an embroidered shawl to dress up the outfit for the occasion. In summer wear pastels and light colors in ivory cream, coral, lilac, lavender, blue, pink, cream, & soft green. Bear in mind you can always buy a shawl to match the shoes, bag and jewelry so having a silver and gold shawl is a must.
In cooler fall and cold winter season we recommend wool shawls and wraps. Solids are must haves to complete any wardrobe. Leave one wool shawl or cashmere wrap in the car to give some luxurious warmth and style to your outfit.
There are many options for warm shawls and choose a ply or layer of yarn in shawl to suit the degree of warmth you want. In early fall 2 ply warm shawls are adequate. When deep into fall and at beginning of winter a 3 ply warm shawl is great and in cold winter weather I would personally opt for a 4 ply winter wool shawl. Fine wool that comes from Himalayan Mountain goat is soft cashmere pashmina and it is light but luxuriously warm. Women have a passion for Pashmina wool shawls and cashmere shawls and wraps. When woven in Nepal into 3-4 ply shawls and scarves the Cashmere accessories are soft and very warm. Stock up for winter shawls as they make unique thanksgiving and Holiday gifts.
My favorite are the India woven designer full size shawls and they reverse into splendid colors on reverse making you feel like you have two shawls at that one sale price. The designer colorful paisley wool shawls are a cut above in their designing and woven artistry. They are usually one of a kind made for Yours Elegantly. That way you get a unique original no one else has! You can choose from deep dark navy, grey, burgundy red, orange, dark green and black. Often the designer wool shawls have a blend of colors making them artistic must haves!
