You know, it’s funny, I sometimes get so focused on coming up with new and exciting wraps that I forget to wear the colors and styles that are really ‘me’. As much fun as it is to invent new things, it is wonderful to fall back on a wrap that is truly classic and perfectly suited to the woman that I hope to be. Do you ever have experiences like this? For me it felt like stepping back into a warm bath; I just felt so natural and comfortable in my skin.
I wore this to the Chabad Gala tonight and just felt so at home, even though I was the only one there in a tichel. (Actually that may not be true, I think I may have glimpsed one other lady in a scarf, but am not sure.) And no sillies, I can’t afford to go to something like that as an actual guest! I was there playing the cello, hence the mostly black outfit 🙂
Anyway, I digress! This is what I find works best for me style-wise:
– Royal colors
– A bit of bing, but nothing too flashy
– Lots of volume, but not near my face. I like volume at the back of my head, in a nice and round halo shape
– Hanging tails, but not too long
– Layers, but not with extreme angles
So… what do you think? What styles work best for YOU? Are you a refined one scarf woman? Do you shine most with bright colors and fun patterns? Do angles and contrast work best for you? Or do sophisticated appliques an sparkles make you the most beautiful? What about volume? High, low, round, tall, big, small, or nada? Can’t wait to hear your responses!
