It is rare that our carefully laid plans go exactly as intended. When life throws us a curve, it can result in welcome change, diversity and instant impulsive fun. Sometimes, however, the curve ball results in less pleasant experiences.

If an off the cuff invitation arrives when you are not appropriately dressed, it can be very frustrating. You could excuse yourself then late wish you hadn’t. You could also arrive “as is” and spend the rest of the night feeling as if you don’t fit in. You can’t always plan for these occasions with an outfit that is “just right” stashed away in the trunk of your car. Even if you have a change of clothing, the time to do so may not be available. Yet, if you happen to be carrying a silk shawl or scarf, you can make over a standard outfit into something frivolous, quirky and suitable for bar or club hopping or into the height of sophistication and class for an up-scale restaurant and/or a night out at the theater. In just a few seconds, you can tie, drape and co-ordinate around your body, head, neck or shoulders creating an entirely fresh and new look for any event.

This is not the only good reason for stashing a silk shawl or scarf in your car’s glove box. They are also good in case of an emergency. If you become trapped in a car and the temperatures dip, a silk scarf can help save your life. Silk ranks high among those fabrics with natural heat retaining qualities. Silk fabric is also finely constructed meaning it is easy to tuck away in your car’s glove box or in your purse. As a result, you can employ it when the temperatures dip below freezing, mimicking the actions of the World War I and aviators who implicitly trusted their silk scarves for warmth when flying high. If children are involved, keep them warm by wrapping them in your silk scarf or shawl. It will help them retain body heat.

It may seem frivolous to purchase a stunning silk scarf just to keep it in your car for a possible emergency. Yet, is you do have one on hand, you can apply it to take care of a variety of needs. These silk accessories are good for practical warmth as well as decorative uses. At home or in the car, the presence of a sumptuous cozy, stunning hand dyed silk scarf or hand painted shawl silk scarf can come to your aid when you want and need it.

hen the cold arrives, the only effective way to hold it at bay is to layer your clothing. The air builds up between each layer, providing warmth that keeps us contentedly snug. The major problem with layering is it may restrict your movement. Moreover, too many bulky layers make women feel fat, formless and unattractive – not the pleasantest way to spend the long winter months.

There is a way to avoid it. You need to realize that thin layers can be as effective as thick ones are. You need to play the numbers not the thickness game. While many man-made fabrics such as nylon make you sweat, thinner natural materials such as silk prove to be more effective. Silk actually retains heat while drawing away sweat. This is one explanation why, traditionally, high quality items had silk linings.

Although it is difficult to imagine fine and flimsy silk scarves can provide effective protection from winter’s bitter blast, it is true. A silk scarf or shawl is truly extremely effectual. Draped over the shoulders sandwiched between a sweater or blouse and a coat or jacket or rather an overcoat and perhaps a light jacket, a silk scarf boosts both temperature and a woman’s sense of worth. Gone is a human blimp. A further advantage is this. When you remove your outer layers, you can simply reposition your stunning hand dyed scarf. It will add its own dash to whatever you are wearing. Its inimitable pattern and strikingly exciting colors provide a boost to any outfit.

Another inimitable accessory is a hand dyed silk shawl. Like silk scarves, these add an amazing élan draped casually over coats and jackets. Suddenly that plain old outer garment looks fresh and new. Selecting a singular hand-painted design will be sure to set you apart from the crowd. As for locating a shawl right for you – that is not a problem. Talented craftspeople work with the fabric, slowly introducing the multitude of hues and patterns through traditional hand-painting techniques. The colors and patterns they create are not found in the mass-produce counterpart. Silk accessories of this high quality are unique. You can find one able to match any outfit – inner or outerwear. Not only will you feel warm and toasty wearing these 100% pure silk accessories, but you will have abandoned that bloated look for something tasteful, practical and absolutely gorgeous.
