Style Decisions: How to choose shawls and wraps for evening dresses

  • 3 min read

It’s that time of the year when spring and summer embrace each other, and present us with a combination of cool breeze and sunny days. Undoubtedly a shawl or scarf wrapped around your shoulder brings elegance to your evening ensemble, but deciding which shawl to match with your evening dress can be a daunting task. We have rounded up a few tips here to lend you a hand in this decision. Read on!

Choosing Seasonal Wraps

Go for the ones which are most suitable for the season so you could flaunt them with comfort and appear fashion savvy at the same time. The most trending these days are silk and lightweight chiffon shawls in pastel and misty colors.

Opting for a suitable color

If your evening dress is patterned, embroidered or beaded, match it with a plain elegant formal shawl. On the other hand, a simple solid color dress (and that little black dress) will look absolutely classy with a paisley wrap, a floral silk chiffon shawl or a printed silk formal wrap. Being a woman, you are bestowed with an inane fashion and style sense, use it smartly!

Taking accessories into account

Always take the accessories like jewelry and shoes into account while choosing a shawl. For instance, if you are wearing silver jewelry, wear a grey silver silk wrap which has a fine gloss to it for added allure. Gold accessories work best with shawls that have gold or warm tones to pull the outfit off like a diva. Likewise, pair pearls with an ivory or pastel silk chiffon wrap for an elegant appearance, and of course, black goes with just about everything!
