What’s with floral petticoats and headgear just because you have stepped into your 50’s? What looks good on you one year would look outdated just because you have grown a year older is bizarre; it isn’t always this cut and dried.

If you are afraid you are going to ‘look’ old in your 50’s you most probably will. However, remember most of the time you are what you wear and the way you dress up can take off years of your actual age.

Instead of bright floral dresses, go for solid figure-hugging, knee length dresses. The lack of skin show adds a nice mature touch while subtly making you look well less than your age. You can team this up with a smart scarf and some pumps.

Have you noticed how women shift to polo t-shirts as they grow old, why on earth? It has become almost clichéd now, and no, it doesn’t help unless of course you’re off to play golf and team polo up with a smart slim-fitting pair of trousers. Stick to stripes (vertical or horizontal depending upon your body shape) and not-too-loud prints. Leave graphic t shirts with rock band emblem on it for your kids.

For a formal look, try pencil skirts and crisp fitting suits. There’s nothing more alluring than power radiating from the way you dress. Don’t forget that accessories make up for 40% of your overall look, so invest in good handbags, classy jewelry, original scarves and comfortable shoes.

Pullovers again are great, team them up with a string of pearls. Keep a tab on your neck and hem line, the former shouldn’t be too low and the latter too high. Wrap around dresses, handkerchief skirts, and maxi dresses are safe bets for any age.

Scarves should be a patent in your wardrobe considering its versatility. Whether you want to add a splurge of color to your outfit or go semi-formal, scarves can be easily manipulated to suit the look. Cotton, and polyester are best for regular wear while if you’re looking for exquisite gifts items, try pashmina and silk scarves, these are known for their opulence and delicate soft fabric.

Faux fur jackets in hot pink are such a disaster at any age. Trench coats, slim-fitting jackets, cardigans, pea coat, and shawls are some winter accessories you can stock up on.

The number one rule to looking young at any age is to stay fit. Workout regularly and keep a check on those junk food cravings.

Wishing you a great Holiday Season,

They say that if you want to peep into the soul of an artist, check his art or work. Every great painter who has ever existed has left behind a legacy in the form of their paintings. Some paintings are intriguing while others offer a deep insight into the many moods of the painter. Every painting has a different perspective and highlights a particular emotion. This is exactly the reason why paintings seem to talk back at us when we look intently and deeply into them. There are times when you will find this voice calling out to you from within the painting. Of course, it is not the voice of the painting but the voice of your inner soul. That is how deep art and painting can touch you!

So when a friend asked me how she can feel the magic of art in her life, I asked her to check out hand painted silk scarves. Why hand painted scarves, she asked. First, these are high quality silk scarves that look good and feel good. Second, these scarves have been used as a canvas for subtle modern painting. It is a known fact that it is difficult to paint on silk fabric. So think about it? Think how painstakingly art-work has been created on each silk scarf. Think about the perspective of the painter, their emotions, their thought process, the sparks of creativity, and then think about the final product.

When you think of the artwork that has been so intricately painted on the silk scarves for women, you can almost visualize the entire range of emotions, right from happiness to melancholy. At the heart of the artwork on these scarves is the myriad hue of colours that brings the artwork to life. From sunset red to sunrise orange and from lime green to aqua blue, each color in the artwork has its own identity and melts into each other to form a singular piece. Whether it abstract art or projection of objects of still life like flowers, the colours blend into the artwork to make it stand out.

True creativity always wins! The hand painted silk scarves symbolize the triumph of creativity and that of human life. It is symbolic of the variety of emotions that women go through, right from their teenage life to their old age. These subtly painted silk scarves symbolize the coming of age of a woman! So if you are wondering what to gift your beloved this Christmas, go for hand painted silk scarves; she will adore you even more!

Like diamonds, hand painted silk scarves are forever. I happened to meet a lady in her mid 40’s at the Museum of Modern art in Vienna on one of my recent visits there. She was visibly impressed and enthralled by the works of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Claes Oldenburg. In fact, classical Modern works of art by Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso held her spellbound. At the end of the tour, she turned sad and said, “I wish I could take these paintings home because I found my share of peace by simply looking at the paintings.” I said, “Did you know that now you can wear beautifully created art in the form of silk scarves?” She said, “No, does something like that exist?” That was the beginning of a long conversation.

After a few months, she called me up to tell me how her life has changed thanks to the hand painted silk scarves. How she found her share of peace in the several shades of blue, red, orange, and green. How much she loves the paintings on the scarves and how it has affected her personality, attitude, and behaviour in a positive manner. I was amused but I knew that for someone who loves art, this was probably as close as someone can get to something that they desire the most and will treasure for a lifetime.  Is it the beauty of art or painting or is it the hidden beauty within each of us that is actually brought out through these exquisitely handmade silk scarves?

I think it is a mix of both. Somewhere deep down within us, there is a beauty that is waiting to come out, waiting to be appreciated, waiting to be embraced. When you wear something as beautiful as the subtleness of winter flowers or the muted brightness of tulips then it transforms something within you. The colours  bright or pale, work their magic on our soul and open the doors of our mind. They relax us from within so that when we face the world, we brim with a sense of high self esteem.

The fact that these hand painted silk scarves have been created to give us a soul experience within a formal environment or in an occasion makes them true works of art.  It is an accessory that you can wear for any occasion or event, including Christmas and Thanksgiving.  The beauty of the hand painted silk scarves lies in its ability to melt and become an integral part of you!

If you are getting heartily fed up of receiving the same old boring gifts every time your birthday or Christmas comes around, then it’s time to take action and start dropping a few hints about those gorgeous silk scarves that you’d really like.

Let’s face it, when it comes to the men in our lives, they’re not always the most imaginative creatures at those present-buying times of year, and sometimes even our female friends can be way off the mark when they choose the gifts to present us with.  What a pity though, for everyone to go around wasting their hard-earned cash on things that we don’t really want or have any use for when they could be spending it on a wonderful luxury item that’s going to be used time and time again.

 

Although it might be a bit rude to just blurt out to our friends and loved ones what we’d really like for a birthday or Christmas present, it doesn’t hurt to hint at the things that we really cherish in the hope that they will take notice.  Do be warned though, if you want the man in your life to sit up and take notice, don’t mention those sumptuous silk scarves and shawls while he’s watching sport on TV and do be prepared to have to mention them more than once if you want to drive the message home.

Of course, if you’re going to angle for one of the fabulous examples from the collections of silk scarves or shawls, you might as well aim for the best and mention the superb hand painted accessories which are available online.  Feel free to wax lyrical about the sumptuous 100% pure silk and the totally unique designs which are hand painted by talented artists to create these stunning works of wearable art.  Be sure to mention the prices too though, otherwise your loved ones are likely to think that these gorgeous accessories will be out of their financial reach and you’ll just end up with the same box of chocolates or bottle of perfume that you usually get.

Because silk scarves and shawls come in such a wide range of colors and patterns, it’s probably helpful if you indicate to your loved ones which colors and designs most appeal to you.  Just a general idea of a theme for the pattern will do fine and then you will still get a lovely surprise when your fabulous scarf or shawl with its one-off design arrives.

Don’t think of hinting about the gift that you’d like as being cheeky.  Think of it as doing your loved ones a favor.  After all, if they’re going to buy for you at all, it might just as well be something that you want!

Men, of course, don’t have the monopoly on the tailored look and the wearing of suits. For decades, women’s suits have featured strongly on the fashion scene, especially for business wear, and somehow there is still nothing to rival the crisp and stylish look of a professional woman in a smart skirt or pant suit.

In some professions, suits are required to be worn as a uniform, such as is the case for members of air cabin crews.  In other lines of work they are the outfit of choice, often because of the fact that they demand that their wearers be taken seriously for the professionals that they are.  In addition, the combined sharpness of the style and the fabric provides an overall  impression of being incredibly well-groomed and chic.

Although light-colored suits are ideal for semi-formal wear, when it comes to the workplace it is typically the darker colors such as black, charcoal grey and navy blue which are considered most appropriate.  For many women, however, while the elegance of these shades makes them wonderful to wear, the colors themselves can begin to feel rather mundane when worn every day.  What is needed, therefore, is just a touch of color to add that extra little bit of interest, and this is something which can be achieved through the use of accessories.

Of course, whatever accessory you choose to team up with a stunningly smart business suit must itself be of the highest quality, otherwise the whole outfit will lose some of its appeal.  This is why women’s silk scarves, and particularly hand painted silk scarves, make some of the very best choices.  Not only is the 100% pure silk a perfect match with the fine fabric of the suit in terms of quality, but the uniqueness of the glorious hand painted designs set them apart as something truly special.

Hand painted silk scarves are produced using an age-old technique which makes it virtually impossible to reproduce the same design.  This means that the wearers of these women’s scarves are guaranteed a look of total individuality and inimitable style, even if the styles of their suits are fairly standard.  Also, the softness and delicacy of the fabric lends a touch of femininity to what could otherwise be quite a masculine look.

Worn around the neck or shoulders, silk scarves add glamour, sophistication and that all-important touch of color to smart tailored suits, so why not check out the gorgeous range of hand painted silk scarves which can be found online at specialist suppliers?

Luxurious Silk ScarfSilk scarves might have been the mark of luxury for centuries, but if it’s ever crossed your mind that there’s something slightly outdated about them, then think again.  Today’s fabulous designs and stunning colors make them some of the most fashionable accessories that a woman can own.

From the modern day fashion icons who grace some of the world’s most famous catwalks to the stars of screen and stage, young women everywhere have discovered the secret of the style and versatility of sumptuous silk scarves.  Unlike the traditional head squares which were the staple of women’s wardrobes years ago though, the silk scarves which have become such a favorite of the young women of today are vibrant, fun items which make high fashion statements and let their wearers stand out as the individuals that they are.

For today’s discerning buyers, making the ultimate fashion statement isn’t just about wearing what everyone else is wearing during any given season.  It’s about putting your own distinctive twist on the latest fashions to make them your own.  This is just one of the reasons why so many young women are choosing handmade silk scarves to add to their collections, because every one of these gorgeous accessories is an entirely unique work of wearable art.  Not only this, however, but with so many exciting ways to wear silk scarves, you can create a totally new look every time you put them on.

For daytime wear, some of the most fashionable designs of silk scarves are also some of the simplest.  Bright rainbow stripes and checkered patterns in a variety of different colors are perfect for keeping out the cold, as well as for adding a stylish and modern twist to an outfit.  When worn with plain office attire or casual outfits, stripes and checks provide added interest without making an ensemble look overly fussy.

Of course, for those fabulous evenings out on the town, silk scarves which carry modern abstract designs are just perfect.  Bold geometric designs in vibrant colors give an incomparable look of pizzazz and, with hand painted silk scarves, there is no need to worry about bumping into someone else who is wearing the same thing, or about being upstaged by an outfit which is more luxurious or stylish.

Creating a high fashion look doesn’t have to mean choosing from the collections of repeat styles and patterns which are available in the department stores or looking like a clone.  With fabulous hand painted silk scarves, you can achieve a wonderfully modern look which is all your own.

Jenny Joseph wrote a poem entitled Warning. Many women are probably familiar with the first line ‘When I am an old woman I shall wear purple’. This appealing verse addresses the issue of restrictions resulting from living responsibly stating this is what we can successfully do as we age. The list includes “childish” things such as eating those samples displayed in stores, releasing the alarm, wearing our slippers outdoors when it rains, picking other people’s flowers and wearing the color purple.

These thoughts surely cross the minds of many women as they bustle about “doing the right thing.” Yet, the poem is also a battle call. It is a reminder that we don’t have to wait until we are old and considered eccentric before we enjoy some aspects of life. Among these things is wearing bright colors.

A quick glance around reveals some older women do seem to be more colorful now. They, like so many youngsters, used to play it safe wearing a solid color, like black, from tip to toe. Today, they absolutely seem to flaunt brilliant shads of oranges, reds and even purples. Yet, while the woman in Ms. John’s verse is looking forward to clashing her purple dress with a red hat, these women tastefully combine their stunning shades. They wear them with grace and style. They carefully and elegantly dare to celebrate all the magnificent colors found in nature.

Women who decide to wear bright and bold colors do not have to abandon good taste. In certain accessories, for example, silk scarves and shawls the right mix of colors looks absolutely stunning. It does not matter whether the design is floral, abstract, checkered or striped hand dyed scarves and hand painted shawls consist of brilliantly harmonized colors. They always succeed in providing an air of chic sophistication and style to anyone who wears them. What is also important is this. You do not have to wait until you are old. These stunning accessories look superb on females of any age.  As long as you team them with the right outfit, the effect, whether matching or contrasting both discerning and stunning.

It is incorrect to say only the old can wear hand painted silk scarves and shawls and the color purple. They are suitable for both young and old females. They rate high as a must-have fashion item for your closet. The vast availability of gorgeous distinctive designs, provide something for everyone. Whether you are 18 or 80, traditional or highly celebrity fashion conscious, you can find one to suit your needs to quickly transform your outfit.
