Do you have a formal event or wedding to attend this holiday season? Are you not looking forward to covering up your beautiful dress with a coat to keep yourself warm? If you have an event to attend but don’t want to cover up your stunning ensemble with a coat, consider wearing an evening shawl instead. Here are the top five reasons why you should add a few evening shawls to your closet this winter.
Today, many women don’t think about an evening shawl as an option when they are getting dressed for a formal event. These shawls resemble elegance and sophistication. When you add one to your dress, you can instantly amp up the formality of your outfit without having to cover it up with a bulky and plain coat to keep warm.
Shawls can be worn with a variety of different outfits. From cocktail party dresses to a casual work outfit, almost any type of outfit can benefit from a shawl. When you are out purchasing a shawl, find one that can instantly transform any outfit from day to night. If you have a lot of dresses that are one color, pick out a shawl that will go well with all of these dresses instead of just one. Unlike many other types of accessories, shawls go well with almost any outfit and can be worn in a variety of different ways.
You can wear an evening shawl open with the ends of the shawl tied in the front or thrown around your neck like a scarf. You can also add accessories to your shawl like a broach that will keep two ends of the shawl together. The sky is the limit when it comes to styling shawls.
Have you ever been to an event where they kept the room way to cold? By wearing an evening shawl, you won’t have to freeze through an entire event because you don’t want to put your coat on over your dress. A shawl will keep you warm and stylish all at the same time. If you get warmer later on in the evening, you can easily shed your shawl and go without it until you get cold again.
Not only are shawls extremely versatile, but they also come in a variety of different styles. Shawls come in many different colors so that you are able to add them to any dress or outfit. Typically, shawls that are made to be worn at night are embellished with small beads or gems, have a fringe with beads on the end, are made out of a luxurious fabric such as velvet or silk, or are embroidered with an elegant pattern. In comparison, shawls made to be worn in a more casual setting will usually be made out of a heavier fabric with fewer embellishments.
Finding a coat that is stylish and warm can be difficult. By going with an evening shawl, you will never have to spend hours searching for a coat that goes well with your dress for a certain event because stylish shawls are generally easy to find.
