In spring I recommend silken shawls but not too sheer as spring can often be pretty cool and the spring breeze requires a silk pashmina shawl during the day and as it cools maybe a 2 ply cashmere for evening wear.
Wear a cashmere scarf with a nice dress and you may not necessarily need a full shawl. If you are like me the warmth of a wide long cape wrap is so inviting. I love lounging in my ruana shawl wrap at home, I carry one in my car, have one at work and never forget one whist traveling. It’s a must have accessory for me. I do stock up on ruanas and YE sells them at $44.99 soft warm delightful wraps for all age groups as they make you look sleek, extra chic and en vogue.
