Naturally Dramatic Scarves

by Mary DeArment October 08, 2015

Remember poring over the pictures in books when you were a child? A great illustration pulls us in because we want to know the rest of the story. This photograph has that quality.  Always associated with luxury and royalty, silk is magical. It flows because it is light and is fluid because the fibers are extra long. It takes color like no other fabric and when illuminated by California sun it is breathtaking. 

Dramatic options are good in a wardrobe; it's the unwelcome drama of confused teens and snarky co-workers that wear us out. A simple scarf creates drama with little effort on your part. To step out with color, boldness, or such exquisite beauty that you feel the heads turn as you go is to take charge of your own experience. 

So create your own drama today. Add a flowing scarf and step into the Serengeti. Drape a chiffon square around your shoulders and find yourself in the Louvre. Wrap up in a chiffon scarf and let it whip around your face on the deck of a sailing sloop. Let loose your imagination as you place a silk scarf around your neck and join the tradition of silk luxury that goes back to ancient China.
