Mona Lisa In An Evening Shawl

Aug 17, 2007
It seems hard to keep up with fashion trends and fads. How do you know what's in? How do you know what's out? How do you keep it all straight? What do you do with the clothes that are in your closet that are now "officially" out?

Fashion can be an expensive thing to try to keep up with. And yet, it's important to look our best because that's often when we feel our best. So how do you stay fashionable while still keeping your budget affordable?

The answer lies in owning a few staples that are timeless classics and then simply adding on a piece here or a piece there that meet up with the fashionable trends of the day. What are some staples to consider?

The little black dress, of course, is an important staple. A pair of great fitting jeans. A nice pair of boots (either low-cut hiking books or cowboy boots, depending on where you live and what your interest are). Figure-complimenting t-shirts in an assortment of colors. A well fitting pant suit or other professional wear in a darker color.

These, plus a few other clothes, are crucial staples that should be in every closet. Now it's time to add accessories to spruce up those staples and turn classic into trendy. Midriff baring shirts are very fashionable right now. Scarves look great for both professional and casual wearers. Camouflage is big among the younger crowd. And here's one fashion item that is often overlooked but looks great and makes a great addition to your wardrobe: shawls. Yes, shawls.

The shawl is a timeless fashion staple that never goes out of style...it just gets updated all the time and looks wonderful in a variety of settings. You should own a handful of these great looking accessories, including smooth and velvety styles for formal settings and soft, loosely woven ones for informal settings. Keep a nice, neutral colored one at your desk in the office for those times when the temperature drops.

You will always be wise to follow these rules of thumb when accessory shawl shopping:

...If a lot of your clothes are bright and bold, pick some subdued colors.

...If a lot of your clothes are plain, choose one with a pattern.

...You should have one that goes well with your hair

...One should be the same color as your eyes

...Avoid fringes and frills if you will be wearing them in a professional or formal setting.

...If your hair is longer and you're concerned about shedding (or if you have hard-to-control dandruff) go for a lighter colored shawl.

...Remember it should frame and make your face look
great by reflecting up a good color onto your skin.

...Unless you're in a formal setting, don't wear a shawl that is the same color as your outfit; choose a different color.
