If you’re planning one of your first dates where you don’t wish to show too much skin but still want to wear that super sexy red evening dress, there is a perfect solution to your dilemma. The lacey shawl! While the name gives enough description, these shawls will simply make you look elegant and look awesome for dates. The lace work will make you look younger. And let’s admit it which girl doesn’t love wearing lace?
Choose a shawl with very light lace work and a subtle colour. You could always opt for a white and rose coloured combination. Even a sea green with a little darker shade of green lace would work perfectly. It will give a very light weight to your shawl and make it appear soft.
3) Bright Coloured Shawls
While not many of us love experimenting with colours, shawls in bright colours are a huge head turner this season. Pick any colour of your choice. The brighter the shawl colour, the better it will be for your overall appearance. Nowadays shawls are available in beautiful shades of pastels, neon’s and summery colours. You could wrap them around in different styles. Maybe like a turtle neck around your blouse or wrap yourself completely towards the top to keep you away from freezing in the winter. You could also try wearing it like a scarf imitating many of the celebrity mums who choose style over comfort.
For the winter season, shawls are an extremely essential and fashionable item in your wardrobe. They allow you to experiment. And you can adorn them in various styles and patterns. This piece of clothing will never go out of fashion and will only be a great investment. So if you don’t own a shawl, catch up with your girls and on a shawl shopping spree today!
