Having to dress for the office can become slightly tedious – the same smart business suits day in and day out. With the addition of a gorgeous hand painted silk scarf, however, you can create a wonderful range of different looks and add interest and color to your whole outfit.

Hand painted silk scarves, as opposed to the printed alternatives, are a superb investment for the office. The luxurious fabric and the unique designs provide a look of elegance which is ideal in the professional environment and the colors can brighten even the dullest or plainest suit.

The way in which you tie a silk scarf can change your look entirely, so it is well worthwhile playing around with different styles to find out what works best for your workplace and what feels most comfortable. All of the ways to create a professional look take only seconds to achieve and you can vary your look from day to day.

Square scarves can be folded in half across the diagonal, rolled or folded to create a cylinder and then tied in a simple knot which is worn to the side of the neck or used to create a choker with the knot being placed at the back of the neck.

Another great look can be achieved with a half knot. Simply place a long silk scarf around the back of your neck with both ends hanging freely to the front, but leave one end longer than the other. Cross the longer end over the shorter one, place your hand half way down the length of the longer piece and bring it up above where the two pieces of fabric cross. You should now be holding a loop of material. Take hold of the whole of the loop in one hand and the end of the shorter piece of fabric in the other and pull in opposite directions until the scarf is comfortably tight around your neck.

A quick and easy way to tie a long silk scarf which both looks very attractive and is particularly effective for showing off the gorgeous hand painted design is to fold the scarf in half lengthways, place the double layer of fabric around the back of the neck so that the free ends and the folded end fall to the front. Feed the free ends through the loop created at the fold and pull to tighten.

For a really chic style which looks stunning with a business suit, simply place the middle of the scarf at the back of your neck with the two ends falling to the front and then twist one end of the fabric over the other to create a rope-like effect. When both ends are twisted all the way to the bottom, hold the two ends together and continue to twist so that the ‘rope’ begins to fold back on itself, moving closer and closer to your neck and creating a rosette effect. To complete the look, just tuck the ends of the fabric behind the rosette so that they are out of sight.

Every bride wants her day to be unique, but with so many millions of weddings taking place around the world every week, trying to think of ideas which will make her day stand out can be tricky. Whether you yearn for the traditional white wedding with the Cinderella ball gown and flowing bridesmaids dresses or prefer your occasion to be more funky and modern though, the addition of exquisite hand painted silk scarves or hand dyed shawls can make a statement which screams class, elegance and, most importantly, uniqueness.

Trying to choose bridesmaids dresses for women or girls whose age ranges may span generations, whose shapes and sizes are completely different, whose tastes are entirely at odds with one another and whose skin tones vary enormously can be a complete nightmare. What one loves, another might hate. What is flattering to one might look spectacularly unattractive on another. At the same time though, the bride usually wants to achieve a coordinated look rather than having all her attendants looking completely different. One really simple but highly effective way to achieve a harmonized look whilst still allowing each of the bridesmaids their own sense of individuality, however, is by using silk scarves and shawls. Starting from the same basic bridesmaids dress, (a simple shift style is extremely versatile) these gorgeous accessories can be used in such a variety of ways that no matter how different the ladies are, their overall look will still be one which matches.

Because hand painted scarves and hand dyed shawls are all uniquely designed, with no two being the same, the first thing to do is to choose a harmonizing theme for your accessories – flowers, for example, would be perfect for a wedding. Next, talk to your bridesmaids to find out how they would prefer to wear their scarf or shawl. All women have certain parts of their anatomy that they feel more or less comfortable with, so try to find out which parts they either want to cover up or to accentuate. If one wants to cover her upper arms, for example, then an exquisite hand dyed shawl or a long silk scarf draped around the shoulders and across the tops of the arms would be perfect. If another wants to show off her slim waist, then a fabulous floaty scarf tied around her middle will produce the right effect. For a lady who has larger hips that she wants to disguise, a long scarf tied under the bust to create an empire line is the perfect solution.

Accommodating the different skin colorings of your bridesmaids is also easy if you use silk scarves and shawls. By selecting a neutral color of bridesmaids dress, such as ivory, you can work in the shades which are most flattering to each of your attendants in the accessory.

Combining the quality of 100% pure silk with the expert craftsmanship which goes into producing handmade scarves and shawls will guarantee that your wedding will be remembered as the stylish and elegant occasion that it should be.

Sarongs have been used by men and women in many different cultures around the world for centuries. Their simplicity and versatility, especially in very hot countries, makes them ideal both in terms of keeping cool and in terms of ease of wear for all kinds of different occasions.

Even in modern day times, however, the sarong is not only a very practical accessory, but also a high fashion statement. Never mind the women, we must surely all remember footballer David Beckham being spotted wearing one a few years ago, and starting a fad which saw many of his admirers following suit.

The ways in which men can wear a sarong though, are somewhat limited. For women, however, there are lots of different techniques for tying gorgeous silk scarves and shawls sarong-style to give completely different looks, and here are just a few ideas.

If, like Mr Beckham, you want to wear your scarf or shawl around your waist, there are two very quick and easy methods that you can follow. Firstly you can just wrap it around your waist and tie the two uppermost corners together. Using a shorter scarf, this will give a plunging effect which leaves one leg revealed from the hip down, but if you prefer to cover up a bit more, a longer length of fabric will allow you to wrap it twice around your waist, effectively creating a long skirt. For a slightly more daring look which is ideal for wearing over the top of a bikini, you can take a large square silk scarf, fold it in half diagonally, wrap it around your hips and tie it to one side.

For those occasions when you want to cover up your top half too, silk scarves and shawls look exquisite when tied as a dress. Not only does the sumptuous silk fabric drape beautifully across the figure in these styles, but also the gorgeous hand painted designs can be seen at their very best.

The simplest way to create a sarong-style dress is to wrap the fabric around your body above the bust and tie the two top corners together at the side. For a different look again, you can also use your silk scarf or shawl to create a halter neck dress. In this case, hold the fabric behind you so that it comes up just underneath your armpits, bring the two uppermost corners of the scarf or shawl together at the front and twist them around one another once or twice so that the fabric feels comfortably tight. Then, take both corners up behind the back of your neck and tie them.

For a stunning off-the-shoulder look, hold one of the top corners of the scarf or shawl over the shoulder where you want it to be tied, leaving a little spare fabric to create the knot. Then simply wrap the remainder of the material around your body above the bust until the other top corner arrives at the back of the shoulder and then tie.
