You have seen them – the women who always appear elegant, graceful and together. It does not matter what they are doing – taking the dog for a walk, running off to work, or taking part in a special function, they always look perfect. Somehow, you cannot picture these women spending hours preparing the right look. They do not look as if they have ever rummaged through a closet in search of the perfect combination of colors and styles in their entire life.
Yet, you can become part of their little secret. You, too, can appear effortlessly elegant easily and without unnecessary complication. All you need to do is understand the basics of style: good quality fabrics, simplicity of line and a balance between the plain and the decorative approaches to style. Understand these and you, too, can look sophisticated and fashionable.
When you do not need to layer, a patterned outfit is suitable. This is usually in summer when you it is possible to expose more of your body naturally. When you do need to layer, it is always best to decide on a plain colored outfit or combination. To this, add only a single patterned accessory. This will create a splash of color and add interest. For example, take a dress or pant suit of simple design in a neutral or plain color. To make it more elegant, add a magnificent, patterned silk scarf or shawl. If you try to add this same silk accessory to a patterned outfit, the result is contra-indicative to chic. Instead, it appears busy and untidy.
Selecting colors is a science. You have a choice between matching or contrasting hues. Certain combinations, however, fall within the umbrella of fashion faux pas. These include black and brown, and black and navy blue. Never wear the two together.
An advantage to pairing hand painted silk scarves or shawls with your outfits is the ease with which you can do so. Take a simple pale blue dress. The color is slightly unusual, but this offers no problems. Hand painted silk scarves and shawls, because they are prepared from traditional methods do not suffer from the same limited choices of mass-produced accessories. It is easy to find one that features an identical shade of blue. Nor will you have to fear about how the other colors in the scarf will go with your blue dress. The artist chose them to blend with the blue in the scarf. Now all you need do is to add matching shoes and a purse for a complete look.
If you would rather contrast than match, the best method is to look at a color wheel. Locate on it what color blue best matches your dress shade, then look directly across from it. It will show you what colors will contrast best with your dress.
