A fashion scarf, also known as a scarf, is typically a long piece of cloth worn around the head or neck for fashion, protection, hygiene, fashion, religious or other reasons, or used as a part of a clothing accessory. They can be manufactured in various different fabrics including cotton, linen, wool or silk. Scarves are available in all colour tones, patterns and lengths and can be dyed or customized with various charms or embroidery. They may also come with a pashmina, kurta or shawl which is an extra layer of material around the neck to protect it from cold.
A fashion scarf is not to be confused with a shawl; the former is typically longer and heavier whereas the latter is shorter and lighter. It is typically draped around the head on a daily basis or used as a trendy accessory. Worn in the evening, the scarf can either be knitted or hand-knitted depending on the look and feel it produces. Silk or satin scarves look good when worn with casual clothes such as khakis, t-shirts, shorts, skirts and leggings, while cotton and wool scarves look good with dresses and skirts, pants, and long sleeved shirts. Long scarves are also popular in children’s fashion.
Although scarves date back to ancient times, they gained popularity with western fashion in the late twentieth century. Since then, scarves have become a part of every woman’s wardrobe. The reasons for wearing fashion scarves vary widely depending on the occasion. Weddings and anniversaries, fashion trends, religious observances, and personal beliefs are just some of the reasons why women wear fashion scarves.
The best way to wear a scarf is to drape it over the shoulder and tie it in a bow. One can choose from thin scarves that resemble shawl or thick ones that resemble a cape. In addition to being worn as a fashion accessory, women also use scarves as head adornments. For example, if one wants to make a grand entrance at a party, she can tie a thin scarf over her hair and secure a tiara on her head to complete the look.
One fashion trend that are not only worn by women, but also by men, are the tie and blazer. This outfit can be worn with almost any type of outfit and can add a sense of style to an outfit. One must understand how to accessorize an outfit to achieve the perfect look. Ties and blazers are simple additions that can give a man an edgy or even fashion forward look. One must choose the right color for the tie and blazer to match the outfit and its color. For instance, if one is wearing a white outfit, a tie and blazer should match the color of the outfit and in contrast if one is wearing a black outfit, tie and blazers should be in neutral colors.
Silk square scarves have a very versatile look and can either be worn alone or added to other accessories to give a unique fashion statement. They are usually made with silk, a natural fiber that has the ability to drape well. Silk square scarves can also be doubled as a headband. In addition, they can also be used as accessories for weddings, parties, and other special occasions.
