Its finally winters! With the favourite season comes a chance to wear the favourite accessory. We all love all things associated with this season: the beautiful and colourful changing leaves, crisp air, the hot sips etc. And one the most beautiful garment that we got to wear and which each one of us adore is a beautiful and elegant piece of shawl. It’s not just a great investment that we make but also something that makes one look so elegant.
Traditionally in India, both men and women wore shawls. The style depended on the embroidery: if the shawl has patterns all over, it would be draped over the shoulders or wrapped around the body. If only the borders are woven or embroidered, it would be worn around the neck like a scarf, or tied around the waist.
India’s cultural heritage is famous all around the world. Especially the Indian art scene that is reminiscent of its times, unique history and culture. Pashmina shawls are an integral part of India and particularly Kashmir’s heritage that has gained fandom everywhere.
Shawls are nice because they are a unique look, different than sweaters, but are still comfortable and can keep you warm. Also akin to sweaters, shawls can be worn for dressy occasions or casual ones.
A nice thing about shawls is that they can be removed and then draped back on depending on the temperature of the room or the outdoors – perfect for layering in fall weather.
In the start of winters, when the weather is not as yet very cool, this shawl can be worn over a tank top or T-shirt. It also looks good over a short-sleeved dress. Toward the middle and end of winters, this shawl can be worn over a light sweater with jeans or leggings, and over a sweater dress with tights or leggings and boots.
For such a simple winter accessory, it has a big impact on your winter comfort. Even when wearing a winter coat, having your neck exposed to the winter elements won’t prevent the cold from seeping inside so it’s best to bundle up.
If being warm is your ultimate goal then you may prefer to add some bulk especially for really cold days. You’ll be dressing according to what the weather is like outside so you’ll choose whatever is going to work best for you that day. Shawls can be stylish as well as super warm.
