Genghis Khan In a Pashmina Shawl?

Aug 17, 2007
Wear a piece of history from the days of Genghis Khan!

When you own a pashmina shawl you own a garment that has been in popular use for thousands of years in one form or another. It served as a practical, religious, and also fo fashion purposes in several cultures and it shows no sign of slowing down! Today, they still serve similar purposes.

Are you looking for a perfect addition to your wardrobe? Are you looking for something to "spice up" your current clothing options? This ancient, but still very much in fashion garment is perfect for the modern woman. In this article we will talk about how to find the perfect womens fashion accessory to give your wardrobe a lift.

The shawl is appropriate in a variety of settings. In formal settings you can wear a beautiful and hand sewn velvet one over your shoulders. This serves both a practical purpose of keeping you warm...especially if your dress has bare shoulders. Also, it serves the fashion purpose of providing a perfect way to bring together your accessories with a large piece that is both clothing and accessory. Look for smooth, solid colors as well as black and white. Four of these gifts? accessories? should serve all of your formal needs.

In less formal corporate settings, (but still require you to look your best), a lightly knit shawl in a neutral color is perfect to go with all of your work wear and it's something you can leave at your desk for those times when it seems like they have turned the heat down. I'd avoid ones with fringes because they look less professional and you'll find they can get in the way.

In less formal settings away from the office...like an evening out with friends or your spouse...a loosely knit one (including ones with fringes or without) is the perfect addition to wear with jeans and a light blouse.

In the least formal settings (and for most of us, that's our favorite and most comfortable setting), a shawl makes the perfect comfort accessory to curl up on the couch in front of the fire with a good book and a glass of wine. The color is less important here, but you should find one as comfortable as you would like. Choose one that is knit and made of wool or cashmere.

Having a shawl for every occasion will suddenly make your life a whole lot simpler. You no longer have to consider the temperature as much when you are looking to lay out your clothes for the day. And instead, you can lay out what will look good and feel good and trust your shawl to keep you warm.

Whether you are in a shoulder-less dress and heels or you are in jeans and cowboy boots, this ancient and a beautiful garment will keep you warm and looking great!
