Wraps, Scarves, and Capes…Oh My!

I found this Aztec print at a thrift shop. The colors brighten up my mood in the dreary Fall weather climate. The great thing about a poncho is that size doesn’t seem to matter. There is enough room to go around if you are full-figured, or if you are a little more slender the fabric lays just right.

Saw this at Gabe’s

What’s a girl to do when she simply doesn’t care to wear a heavy coat?

I have never really liked the idea of wearing coats. I always saw them as being too heavy and somewhat bulky for my short physic. I particularly don’t like driving in a coat. So what’s my alternative?

Here is another wrap from Gabe’s

I love wraps and ponchos. They are light and very easy to wear. I find them to be quite functional, stylish and the fact that my hands are free to move comfortably is an added asset.Something as simple as a scarf could really complete a look. The right scarf can accent what could otherwise be a simple ensemble.

I used to only wear scarves to keep my neck warm until a friend gave me a long scarf that turned out to be more than just a cozy accessory to fight off the chill. We were celebrating another friend’s birthday as a part of a spa day affair. The host gave all of us a circular floral scarve as a gift.

I found my scarf to be quite stylish and it served as more than just a winter cover-up. It was bright enough to match almost everything in my wardrobe. It was lightweight and cotton and I found it to be suitable for all year round. The scarf really pulled together a casual or dressy look. It tended to make my ensemble look much more stylish; even when worn with a blazer and jeans, it was an attention grabbing outfit. 

So, if you had to pick one accessory to add to your “must-have” items….a scarf is the “it” garment. Make sure you pick a fabric that is seasonal unless your main purpose is warmth.

You can find the scarves for a little as a couple dollars in a thrift shop to as much as $10.00 at a discount retailer to $30.00 and up in a regular shop.

Although I prefer the solid colors, you might want to add some diversity to your choices.  If you get the lightweight you can wash by hand or in a gentle cycle. Remember most wools; even in a scarf  may have to be dry cleaned.
