There are times when even a great dress ends up looking mediocre because it’s not well-accessorized. And there are times when a mediocre dress can end up looking stunning, just because it’s got the right accessories to go with it. So even though you don’t realize it, the right scarves, shawls, handbags or ties can make a huge difference to your outfit. So next time you’re looking at your dress and wondering what’s missing, don’t go ahead and change it. Instead, try adding some interesting accessories to dress it up. Here are a few ideas for scarves and shawls you can buy at our online fashion boutique:
- Add a Bright Color: What’s the point of a scarf or a shawl if it’s not bright and eye-catching? If you’re wearing a basic LBD, a scarf in a bright color or a bold print can really make a big difference. If you’re wearing any solid-colored dress or suit, a printed scarf can make your outfit look more eye-catching. If you’re wearing something in a neutral color, like black, white, grey, brown, beige or cream, get a scarf or a shawl in a beautiful primary color to create a stunning combination.
- Let it Flow: One of the reasons why women tend not to wear scarves or shawls is because they seem a little fussy. We’ve gotten used to wearing clothes that fit us perfectly. So we don’t want to wear things that might come undone or get in the way. But the beauty of a scarf or a shawl is that it’s informal and careless. It looks beautiful because it flows. You should make sure that it’s not dragging on the floor or getting caught in doors. But other than that, there’s no need to make sure that it’s properly tucked in, tied or pinned. You can just play around with it throughout the day and drape it in various ways.
- Experiment with It: You don’t have to wear a scarf only around your neck. You can twist it around and use it as a belt. Or you can tie it on your handbag. You can use two scarves on a particularly cold day. You can tie your scarf in the front, on the side or in the back. You can use it as a hairband. Similarly, there are many things you can do with a shawl. Just wrap it around your neck or open it all the way so it covers your arms. You can leave it hanging on one shoulder if it’s not cold.
