Striped and Checkered Silk Scarves for a Totally Modern Look

May 7, 2011

  Talk about silk scarves to today’s adolescents and many will only remember the square headscarves their grandmothers wore in days gone by. Some may even be wearing them still. Yet, in common with other accessories, the unassuming silk scarf has changed, moving with the times. One characteristic clearly demonstrating this change is the absolutely tremendous range of designs currently available.

Animal and floral designs continue to make certain generations look tremendously stylish and urbane. However for the younger crowd between teens and their 30s, this pattern is not their ideal choice in this silk, soft fabric. Fortunately, silk designers have introduced a new theme that appeals to the street cred of this group – stripes and checks. Now even the most fashion conscious of young women can enjoy the delicious feel of silk and still remain fashionable.

While stripes and checks have played prominent roles in the world of women’s fashion for decades, they have not been a feature of silk scarf and shawl design. Today’s modern approach combines this luxurious and sensuous fabric with its incredible ability to keep you warm and cool with this new design. While silk has always been synonymous with chic and class, it now has a modern appeal.

An example of a truly trendy look in a silk scarf is one featuring checkers in shades of black and gray. This combination makes for incomparable versatility. You can dress up casual wear, add a little class to your work outfits and even glamorize that simple black dress. Wearing it muffler-like style is one fashionable way to mimic the current celebrity trend. Another possibility is to combine a fringed scarf with faded jeans and a leather bomber jacket. It looks stylish yet keeps you from becoming cold.

If you would rather add a dash of color to your clothing, consider multi-colored scarves. One with horizontal stripes of vivid colors makes an ideal choice. The rainbow-like selections allow you to brighten the dullest winter day and liven up simple pale summer garb. With an amazing variety of ways to wear them, silk scarves provide you with endless opportunities to alter your wardrobe into something stunning.

It is this versatility as well as the absolute beauty of 100% pure silk scarves that has made them so popular over time. While a simple head or neck scarf may have sufficed for your grandmother, you can wear them in so many other ways. Fashion a new look for your purse by trimming it with a scarf. Place it through pant loops to create an interesting belt. Even tie it around your neck, form a wonderful halter-top neck for those late nights out or wrap it around to fashion a beach sarong.
