Most people – even those lacking a religion, mark the coming of Easter in some fashion. This traditionally means Easter eggs and other delightful forms of chocolate. Yet, for those still focused on strictly maintaining their New Year’s resolution of a proper diet, with its avoidance of all sweets, a gift of chocolates may provide the most tempting of backsliding lures. Yet, even if dieting is not a concern, there is so much chocolate readily available, why not try for something different this year?

The timing of Easter, near the start of a year, is ideal for selecting a fabulous silk scarf or shawl as a present. The shift in seasons and the fickle weather conditions characteristically make it tricky to recognize what to wear. As a result, you can easily be trapped wearing too much or too little. The fabric of these accessories – 100% pure silk is the perfect response to weather’s ups and downs. It is capable of keeping you warm on cold days and cool on the warmer ones. The ideal thing to toss on over a light jacket for assurance when you don’t know what kind of day it is going to be.

While there are many silk scarves and shawls available on the market, the finest are hand painted. They feature unique themes and subjects. With Easter a time of resurrection of all life, the floral schemes are a perfect match and quite appealing. The vivid use of brilliant color provides cheer and delight, particularly when drab winter seems never ending. The process used to create these scarves and shawls ensures the brilliant colors remain colorfast and steadfast extending your pleasure through the years.

There is another positive about purchasing a silk accessory over a chocolate egg or bunny. One or two bites and the egg is all gone, heading straight for your waist and staying there causing its own little misery. A silk shawl or scarf is a thing of beauty that lasts. The recipient can wear it again and again. The limitless ways to tie and use the scarves widens the appeal making it an ideal accessory for anytime and season. No matter where she goes, from beach to bar to elegant affair, your loved one will stand out in sophisticated, elegant, quality and stylish silk.

Now, in all fairness, if you sit through all 94 episodes of the hit TV series Sex and the City, you will see a fair number of women’s scarves and shawls adorning the necks, not only of our four favorite heroines, but also those of many of the minor characters and extras, although it is debatable as to just how many of these are made from silk. There are though, some very good reasons as to why each of Miranda, Charlotte, Samantha and, of course, our beloved Carrie, really should have invested in a fabulous collection of hand painted silk scarves and hand dyed shawls, so let’s look at each of our girls in turn.

Miranda

Now, although Miranda did finally make partner at the law firm where she worked, it has to be said that she might have got there sooner if only she had smartened up her act a bit. Of course, Miranda is the brains out of all four characters and certainly the least style conscious, but nevertheless she could have done with a little help. There were episodes in which she wore neck scarves, but these did little more than make her look like an air stewardess. A few long, flowing, hand painted silk scarves would have added much to her look in terms of elegance and sophistication, especially in view of her obvious love of bright colors.

Charlotte

Ah, dear Charlotte, the romantic. Actually, Charlotte’s dress sense was always pretty amazing and she certainly knew how to make the best of herself. By her own admission though, she hated her thighs, and in the shots where she was seen in just her underwear she could probably have been doing with a bit of balancing out. A gorgeous silk scarf tied underneath her bust to create an empire line would have worked magnificently and silk would definitely have been fitting for a lady of Charlotte’s breeding.

Samantha

While it is tempting to suggest that Samantha could well have made use of more than one silk scarf in the bedroom, she might have been better disposed to wear them with some of her more flamboyant outfits to hide a little of her cleavage. Although she claimed to be immune to the love bug, of course this turned out not to be entirely true when Richard came on the scene. Who knows, maybe with a little more class and a tad more decorum, she might have been able to keep him.

Carrie

Last, but by no means least, there’s Carrie, the real style guru, and boy did she occasionally put some zany outfits together. Carrie though, always seemed to manage to get away with combination’s of clothes that none of the rest of us would ever dare try. She did actually seem to be quite a fan of scarves and shawls, but if you’re going to be around someone as stylish and classy as Mr Big, only 100% pure silk hand painted scarves and shawls will do!

While summer might not at first appear to be the most obvious time to be thinking about scarves, in fact in many ways it is the perfect season for putting fabulous hand painted silk scarves to work. These gorgeous wearable works of art with their intense colors and exquisite unique designs can be put to great use in all kinds of different summer situations, and here are just a few ideas to get you started.

Hot, sunny days

Wearing a silk scarf on a hot, sunny day might seem rather counter-intuitive, especially when you bear in mind how warm the fabric can be in the wintertime. This fabric, however, has some truly amazing properties in relation to temperature and also works wonderfully well to keep you cool. This is not the main reason for wearing a silk scarf on your head in the heat of summer though, but rather for the protective shade that if offers to both head and hair. If you prefer to wear a hat, you could even tie your fabulous silk scarf around the brim to give it an instant facelift and a really elegant appeal.

Windy days or summer drives

Even during the height of summer, the weather can still come up with a few surprises and the odd windy day can just blow up out of nowhere. Particularly for women with long, fine hair, wind can be a nightmare as it fills the hair with static and leaves it clinging embarrassingly to your face. Use a stunning hand dyed scarf to cover your lovely locks when wind threatens to do its worst and everyone will think you are making a spectacular fashion statement rather than carrying out an exercise in damage control. Also, if you are planning on taking a summer drive in an open-topped car, why not go for the Grace Kelly look and protect your hair from sun and wind damage too?

Cool summer evenings

Summer evenings are times when it is easy to get caught out. The heat of the day gives a false sense of security when we are getting ready to go out for the evening and sometimes we can get caught unawares when temperatures start to drop. Take along your lovely silk scarf though, and not only can you use it to cover your head, but of course you can wrap it around your neck or shoulders too to keep you cozy.

On damp days and evenings

As anyone will know who has naturally wavy or curly hair, damp weather can cause havoc in one of two particular ways. If you have left it natural to show off all of those gorgeous curls, then the slightest bit of damp can turn it into a frizzy mess. If, on the other hand, you have spent ages with the straighteners turning it into a sleek, glossy style, it does not have to actually rain for the curls to reappear, and just a damp atmosphere will have precisely the same effect. Again, cover up with a silk scarf before you set foot outside and you will be able to limit the effects of the weather.

When it comes to a meal out at a fancy restaurant, an evening at the theatre or even a night out at our favorite night club, we women usually have a pretty good idea of what to wear. Knowing what to put on when we are invited to someone’s home for an evening’s entertainment such as a dinner party, however, can leave us feeling a little more uncertain. Even when we are the ones doing the entertaining, the dress code can still feel like a bit of a dilemma.

One of the main reasons why dinner parties in particular have the potential to throw women into a quandary on the clothes front has much to do with the level of formality of the occasion. Whilst an evening amongst friends certainly could not be classed as a formal affair, in most cases it could not be thought of as totally casual either. Especially when the hostess has gone to a great deal of trouble to prepare a delicious meal and present it beautifully for her guests, it just would not be fitting to turn up in something which made it look as if you too had not made an effort. The trick, therefore, is striking the right balance.

Of course, when you are relaxing and enjoying an evening at a friend’s home, one thing that you do want to be is comfortable. While there may be times when you are prepared to squeeze yourself into a sexy little dress and spend the evening holding your breath, this is certainly not one of those occasions. Try to choose something, therefore, which is flattering but also gives you room to breathe, even after you have eaten. A dress or smart skirt or pants and a top or blouse are all perfectly acceptable. Don’t, however, just stop there, otherwise you are quite likely to feel underdressed or as though you are just about to set off for the office. Instead, top off your outfit with a gorgeous hand painted silk scarf or a hand dyed shawl to add that extra special finishing touch.

Women’s silk scarves and shawls are perfect for occasions such as dinner parties for several reasons. Firstly, they dispense with the need for bulky coats or jackets which often spoil the finished look of the outfit. If you only have a short walk or drive to your friend’s house, it will not matter what the weather is doing, you can simply don your fabulous accessory and go. Secondly, and also on a practical note, if your friend is one of those people who shows a certain reluctance to turning on the heating, you can still keep your silk scarf or shawl wrapped around you without looking as though you have just stepped in from the street.

From a purely aesthetic point of view, women’s silk scarves and shawls which have been hand painted with a unique design are simply some of the most exquisitely beautiful, vibrantly colorful and luxuriantly elegant accessories that a woman can wear. The sumptuous 100% pure silk moves and drapes in a way that no other fabric does, giving a look of total sophistication and quality. Now, if that doesn’t let your hostess know that you made the effort, nothing will!
