How to Buy Silk Scarves

The fashion industry has taken the silk scarf accessory to a whole new level. What was once reserved for those who are cultured and wealthy is now a common accessory for women around the globe. A silk scarf offers a multitude of versatility for wearing with different outfits. Some women invest in a variety of scarves so that they can wear one with all types of outfits. A silk scarf can also make a wonderful gift if you know the proper steps for buying them.

1. Determine which type of scarf will be the best option. Women have specific styles. The woman you know will likely wear a silk scarf one specific way. This could be around the neck, wrapped around her head or around her waist. You will also notice that she wears just one style of scarf – short or long. Most women have a style that they stick with no matter what. Determine what type of style the woman receiving the scarf has and work from there.

2. Assess what her favorite colors or patterns are. Scarves are often added to an outfit to help bring color to it. If a woman is subject to wearing suits everyday for work, then she may choose to add a silk scarf as an elegant way to brighten her outfit and decrease the mundane. By watching her style, you can determine which scarf look is best suited for her.

3. Decide how much money you are willing to spend. The last thing a girl wants is a knock off scarf. Do your best to make it an original. However, designer scarves from Coach, Hermes, Fendi and Versace can cost upwards of $200 to $500 each. For some people this cost is too high. As an alternative you can choose to buy a scarf made by local silk artists. Because these crafters are not well known like designers, they can offer similar quality products at a price that is more budget friendly.

4. Shop online for the best deals on a silk scarf. There are dozens of manufacturers today that provide the real thing when it comes to these elegant accessories. Be wary of knock off options which only offer scarves made partially of silk.

If you are really looking to make an impression, then you can choose purchase a silk scarf from overseas. There are several exotic options for these scarves including those that are made from Thai raw silk. This is a much higher grade fabric that will make any women squeal in excitement. Alternatively, India and China are both major producers of hand embroidered silk scarves. This is a technique that cannot be done by machines which will snag the fabric. Choosing to go the extra mile and spend the money on these scarves will prove to be a worthwhile gift.

Be sure to wrap your gift in tissue paper to avoid it getting snagged on the edges of a bag. Silk is a very delicate fabric and needs to be handled with care.
