Everlasting Style: Classic Pashmina Shawls

In 2011 Fashion Trends, About Scarves, Bridesmaid Pashmina Shawls, Fashion Scarves, Get the Look, Pashmina Scarves, Pashmina Shawls and Scarves, Summer Scarves, Women's Scarves on August 29, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Fashion trends appear and disappear on a daily basis; most of them barely lasting a couple of weeks. However, there are styles that are forever trendy, always beautiful and always fashionable. One of those timeless styles is the pashmina shawl. Classic and elegant, the pashmina is one of the most popular women’s accessories. Ever since its appearance on the fashion scene and up to this day, this wardrobe staple has remained a classic. There are certain prints, fabrics and styles that will go out of style after a while, but you can rest assured that the pashmina isn’t one of those.

What makes the pashminas so special? The soft feel, the warmth they offer, the style and the effortless elegance, all these contribute to the appeal of the scarf. But that’s not all that is special about pashminas. They are also extremely versatile items that can be easily dressed up or dressed down; they can be worn both during summer and winter and they go well with pretty much everything else in your wardrobe.

It’s well worth investing in a classic pashmina shawl; you’ll see that it will soon become your most valuable fashion accessory. Here are the top classic cashmere pashminas every woman should own:

A black pashmina shawl

A chocolate pashmina shawl

A nude pashmina scarf – this would also make a gorgeous bridesmaid gift. Plus, the warm cafe-au-lait color is hard to resist!

A gray pashmina – whether you opt for light gray or a dark shade, this is an absolute must-have. A celebrity favorite, the gray pashmina has been worn by Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian and Gwen Stefani, just to name a few.

A pink pashmina shawl – take a cue from Jennifer Aniston’s look book and update your scarf collection with a beautiful pink pashmina.

A white pashmina shawl – soft and beautiful, the white pashmina will make a nice addition to your everyday wardrobe. If white isn’t your favorite, try another classic, the cream pashmina shawl.

These classic scarves will never fall out of style and that is what makes them an absolute must-have to every woman who loves beautiful fashion accessories.

Metallics are one of this year’s biggest and most popular trends. From gunmetal to copper and rich shades of gold, these bold hues are exactly what any bona fide fashionista needs to enrich her wardrobe. Fashion experts advise  trend followers to give them all a try: from sun-kissed bronze make-up to bold jewelry and fabulous fashion scarves, there is one metallic accessory for everyone.

However, two shades are gaining more and more popularity and are quickly making their way into our wardrobes. These metallics must-haves: silver and gold.

We like to keep up with trends so, naturally, our scarf collections feature a couple of gorgeous silver and gold pieces any scarf lover will go crazy for.

During summer we are all about minimal clothing: basic T-shirts, maxi dresses, cute skirts and gladiator sandals. The heat isn’t really allowing us to load up on clothes or rock the “layering” trend we all love so much so the only thing left to do to make our looks pop is accessorizing.

First, there’s statement jewelry. You can’t go through summer without enriching your jewelry collection with a couple of statement necklaces, cocktail rings and big earrings.

Second, we love statement scarves. These are perfect for summer evenings, when the weather cools a little and you need extra coverage. Here are our top ten statement scarves and since these pieces speak for themselves, we’ll let you decide if you love them as much as we do:

Go neon, or go home! Neon Orange Pashmina Shawl, $24.95

Celebrities We’d Love To See Wearing Our Scarves

In Fashion Scarves, Pashmina Scarves, Pashmina Shawls and Scarves, Summer Scarves, Women's Scarves on July 15, 2011 at 6:55 pm

One of our guilty pleasures is keeping an eye on what celebrities wear, especially the scarves they wear. After years of observing celebrity scarf styles, we feel like we have a good grasp of the scarf style some celebrities love.

Here’s a list with the celebrities we’d love to see wearing La Purse scarves and the scarf we’d pick out for each of them.

1. Jessica Alba

We’re 100% sure that Alba owns an impressive pashmina and fashion scarves collection. The actress is rarely spotted without a scarf on her neck and for this reason she’s number one on our wish list.

The scarf we’d pick out for for her: the Vibrant Red & Pink Stripped Lycra Viscose Scarf. Alba would rock this scarf, especially if she would pair it with a cute maxi dress and gladiator sandals.

2. Nicole Scherzinger

The former Pussycat Doll loves wearing animal print so naturally we would suggest the Blue Double Layered Animal Print Silk Scarf for her.

3. Kim Kardashian

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian starts is another celebrity with a passion for fashion scarves. We got to see Kim wearing some fabulous scarves over the years and we’re sure she would look amazing if she wore Double Layered Light Colors Print Silk Scarf. The scarf would go perfectly with her skin tone and let’s not forget her passion for nude colors and feminine fabrics.

4. Jennifer Aniston

Remember the famous light pink pashmina the actress wore a year ago? Well, we’d spice things up a little and suggest she’d wear the vibrant Neon Pink Pashmina Shawl.

5. Sarah Jessica Parker

If there’s one celebrity we’d love to see wearing our bold satin ruffle scarves, that’s SJP. She would look incredible with the Ruffle Scarf Teal Blue!

6. Hilary Duff

We’d love to see Hilary wearing our Grey Holes Scarf .

Other celebrities that are constantly wearing fabulous scarves are Selena Gomez, Victoria Beckham, and Nicole Richie.

We had fun scarf-styling all these celebs for this post and we’d love to know your thoughts:

Which celebrities would you style with our scarves?

How To Shop For The Perfect Scarf For You

In 2011 Fashion Trends, About Scarves, Fashion Scarves, Pashmina Scarves, Pashmina Shawls and Scarves, Summer Scarves, Women's Scarves on July 6, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Women’s scarves can easily turn an otherwise lifeless outfit into a fashion-forward look without having to spend a ton of money on pricey accessories or anything like that. It’s easy to put on a beautiful scarf and come up with a breathtaking look!

However, shopping for the perfect scarf that suits you in every way: style, color, and fabric, has to be done a certain way. You should know that a scarf can make your look but it can also break it. Meaning that if you buy a scarf just because it is trendy; without paying attention to any other details, chances are you’ll end up ruining your look.

Scarves are usually worn very close to your face so you must check to see if the color is flattering your skin tone and if the style suits your personality. The most important is that you feel comfortable with your newly purchased scarf.

Here’s a set of useful tips to keep in mind when shopping for fashion scarves:

1. Go For The Basics

You can’t  go wrong with a stylish basic scarf, such as cashmere pashmina shawls, in a solid color like black and white or neutrals such as beige, walnut or ivory cream.

These pashminas are timeless pieces that will get you from winter to spring and look well with pretty much anything else in your closet. Sure, they are a safe choice, but better be safe than sorry.

2. Shop For Fashion Scarves To Update Your Collection

If you are a scarf collector, chances are you’re always searching for the latest fashion scarves. As you’re shopping for new scarves to add to your collection, here are some important things to keep in mind:

– Don’t over do it with colors. If you plan to wear a colored outfit, don’t pair it with a multi-colored scarf because it’s just too much. Opt either for a multi-colored scarf to go with a simple outfit, or choose a scarf that features only one of the colors of your outfit.

– Shop for a neon colored scarf to add that much needed pop of color to your look!

– Do a little bit of research before you hit the stores and find out which designs are trending right now and choose the ones that suit you best.

3. Fabrics To Shop For: cashmere, cotton, silk, wool, mohair or viscose. Opt for fabrics that not only look good, but also feel good. Remember, you’ll be wearing the scarf close to your skin.

4. Shop For Colors That Complement Your Skin Tone

5. Expensive scarves aren’t always the best ones, so search for affordable high quality. There are plenty online stores that offer a wide range of quality fashion scarves at great prices.

Happy scarf shopping!
