Fall colors speak to our hearts of new beginnings and cozy preparations as the school year gets under way and colder weather arrives. Who doesn't love their boots, sweaters and scarves? Soft, shiny and sheer silk chiffon contrasts beautifully with the texture of nubby sweaters, worsted wool, suede jackets and leather boots. And I haven't even talked about color yet!
Warm earthy colors are easy to wear and coordinate well with wardrobe staples in neutral colors -- black, brown, tan, cream, gray. Since silk takes color more brilliantly than other fibers, an autumn palette in quality silk scarf produces a dynamic accessory.
This fall discover the versatility and comfort of silk chiffon which has proven to be a practical and stylish autumn essential. Gone are the days when linen can't be worn after Labor Day; we are no longer constrained by the arbitrary fashion rules that dictated our wardrobe--and drove manufacturers' seasonal sales. Extra large chiffon scarves provide enough fabric to add warmth--at 54 inches they can be wrapped around the neck as many as four times producing many layers to catch and hold warmth. However, they can be opened up to form a light and airy garment as conditions require. What's more, they are large enough to be worn as a skirt, blouse, shawl or scarf.
