Wear Silk Not For Fashion But For Healing

Here’s a fact you may not be aware of: silk has been the luxury material of choice for humanity for approximately 7000 years. Now, that’s quite a surprising amount of time, but it certainly appears to be true as that number is derived from archaeological findings in China where ivory basins were discovered incised with silk worm designs, dated to around 4900BCE. Sure, we’re not entirely certain silk was considered luxurious all the way back then, but it’s difficult to imagine that it wouldn’t have been something a bit special as it is today.

Silk is also alluded to in literary works as old as Homer’s The Odyssey, where a shirt worn by the disguised Odysseus is described as ‘gleaming like the skin of a dried onion’, which is widely believed by scholars to be a description of silk cloth. In modern times, silk is used to create a multitude of luxury items from bed sheets to underwear, as well as a variety of other fashion uses such as blouses, scarves and pyjamas. However, silk is no longer all about the shiny, smooth feeling it creates when touching our skin because scientists have discovered numerous health benefits of silk, which should make the acquisition of some silk knickers or a silk scarf our utmost priority.

Anti-Ageing Benefits of Silk

The Cosmetic and Toiletries journal published the Swiss study nigh on a couple of decades ago which revealed the anti-aging ability of silk. Sericin is the protein in silk which can combine with the protein in skin (keratin) to create a homogeneous protective film which acts as an anti-aging barrier, retaining moisture and preventing wrinkles.

There is also evidence that the diet of silkworms contributes to silk’s health benefits as well. They feed on mulberry leaves which contain massive amounts of antioxidants (nearly 80% more than blueberries and cranberries which are known ‘super fruits’). These antioxidants help with the cellular repair that our bodies get increasingly bad at over time – hence our aging – and thus help us remain looking younger for longer.

Silk Eases Symptoms of the Menopause

Hot flushes and hormonally-driven skin conditions are common symptoms of the menopause, but silk’s soothing qualities can help with both of these ailments. It’s not certain exactly why silk helps with issues like facial flushing and other complexion problems, though it is likely due to its ability to be cool during the hot summer and yet warm during the winter.

Wear Silk Scarves for their Health Benefits

The health benefits of silk can be utilised in a number of ways, especially with the likes of pillow cases and knickers, but you can also benefit from silk by wearing a scarf made from the material. A silk scarf will also last much longer than underwear or pillow cases, plus you will be able to carry its anti-aging properties around with you wherever you go. Even during the hotter months of the year, silk is the ideal material for a scarf. It stays cool to help your skin remain cool, but will still keep you warm once the colder weather kicks in.

With such a great variety of inexpensive silk scarves to choose from, including patterned Pashminas and even coloured silk Hijabs, there’s never been more beneficial reasons to stock up on a selection of silk fashion scarves to ensure you always have the perfect accessory that not only looks amazing, but will provide you with an array of important health benefits as well.

The Bohemian Look

Most people feel relaxed when they can dress casually for an event.For a number of years jeans have been seen as a fashion statement, rather than just cheap work trousers. High fashion jeans can even be more expensive than smart dresses. Matched with trendy shirts of cardigans and stylish leather boots, a pashmina will look alternative and carefree, especially if it is intentionally ragged and tasselled. Take a look at this lovely brown pashmina scarf.

The Elegant Casual Look

Many women have to find a look that is both elegant and smart, but at the same time comfortable enough to get through a busy day at work, including business functions and parties. Women that have to face the public in a stylish manner often need to use the same outfit regularly, especially if they cannot afford an extensive wardrobe of outfits.

Mixing and matching becomes important and the role of accessories takes on more significance. The pashmina is ideal for this role. It is cheap enough in general, to have several shades and designs in your wardrobe; Try this wonderful pink creation.

It can transform a look,without changing much of one’s other clothes.

The Bandana-Style Party Scarf

The summer is here and there couldn’t be a cooler way to show up to a party than with your scarf tied in a bandanna-like way. Simply fold your scarf in half (a scarf that’s on the slimmer side works better in a bandana-style knot), centre the scarf around the nape of your neck, collect each side above one ear, tie a double knot and either let the ends hang loosely down one side or twist the sides and tuck them in. Either way, a funky summertime look is achieved through your scarf that is perfect for a party.

Scarves for Every Body Shape

We’ve all heard of jeans to suit a pear-shaped figure, dresses to complement ladies with large breasts and tops to make sporty-figured women look a little more ‘feminine’. Scarves to flatter certain body shapes are a little less well known. Nonetheless they do exist and, might we add, create some pretty impressive results. Take a look at the ways in which scarves can be potent ammunition is either concealing or enhancing the best and worse of our bodies.

top-heavy

Top Heavy

Top heavy ladies might have a couple of desirable assets up front but if you’re not inclined to put your bosoms on display you may want to subtly hide them by wearing a scarf. Being light, long and generous with material, pashminas are the perfect scarf to help make women with top heavy figures look a little more in balance. Summer pashminas are perfect for the warmer weather of spring and summer and are light enough to wear in the day as well as the evening. Opt for pashminas and scarves that are one colour or have a smaller pattern printed on them larger patterns can tend to accentuate larger features.

hourglass

The Hourglass Figure

With busts and hips that are in proportion the hourglass figure might sound ideal. However this type of body shape is defined by the waist, which is typically much smaller than the busts and hips. If this sounds like you and your curvy hips and breasts seem to dominate your shape, opt for looser clothing that doesn’t cling to the waist. Scarves can also play a pivotal role in helping women with an hourglass figure achieve a sexy, well-proportioned look, as placing a loosely fitted scarf around your neck that hangs seductively past your waist will draw attention from your noticeably defined midriff. Opt for a brightly-coloured scarf, the more eye-catching the better.

apple-shape

Apple-Shaped Ladies

Apple-shaped ladies are significantly larger on top than on the bottom. Those with an apple-shaped figure tend to have a short neck This apple-shaped bodily trait can be overcome by wearing V-shaped tops and jumpers. Alternatively you can conceal a shorter neck by wearing a scarf. From chunky knit scarves in the winter to a beautiful silk floral scarf in the winter, ladies who consider their necks to be shorter than they’d like can cunningly conceal it with a longer scarf of their choice and double wrap them around their necks.

tall-slim

Tall & Slim

Yes they do exists and not just in the fashion magazines and on the catwalk either. If you are fortunate to be blessed with a figure that is not only tall but is slim as well, you can pretty much wear anything you want. Though there are some exceptions. Tall and slim women often have smaller breasts than they might have liked. Avoid wearing low cut tops which would accentuate the flat chest. Alternatively conceal your smaller-than-average breasts by draping a bright and beautiful scarf across your chest.
