They say that, as soon as fall emerges, it’s officially sweater weather until spring. And although it does seem that sweaters are the predominant fashion piece throughout the fall and winter seasons, there are a few other clothing articles worthy of our attention. Welcome the shawl wrap. It’s effortlessly stylish and even glamorous when you pair it with certain pieces. Most shawl wraps are made with textiles that are luxuriously soft and designed to keep you warm. There are so many reasons to invest in a good quality shawl wrap—here, we give you four.
A shawl wrap is the kind of thing that will last you far longer than a single season. Because it's unlikely that you’ll wear a shawl wrap every day the way you might wear a winter coat, it won’t be subjected to lots of wear. You will be able to use it plenty of times throughout the cold months and preserve the material. Not only is purchasing a shawl wrap a wise investment, but it’s also an extremely affordable one. Most high-quality shawl wraps range in price from $50 to $100. If you calculate the average number of times you expect to wear it over the course of several years, each wear could come out to something like fifty cents or less! With a shawl wrap, you are investing in a high-end piece and getting the most bang for your buck.
You can’t carry a blanket with you wherever you go, but you can bundle up in a shawl wrap, which is essentially a stylish blanket custom-made for your body. A shawl wrap can do many things, but its most important feature is that it provides you with an extra layer of warmth. It’s versatile, too, in that you can wear it during any season. On a slightly balmy spring day, you can toss a shawl wrap on over a women’s dress, During the fall, when the weather starts to change and you need more layers, you can wear a shawl wrap over a turtleneck sweater. And of course, during the winter, you can bundle up indoors or outdoors in a nice, thick shawl wrap to give you an added dose of toastiness.
Like that of other classic staple pieces, a shawl wrap can be worn in different ways with a variety of outfits. To create a polished and elegant yet minimalist and effortless style, drape a gray knit shawl wrap over your shoulders to complement a solid-colored long-sleeve midi dress. The two layers of flowy fabric will create a glamorous yet laid-back style. A plaid shawl wrapped over a shirt and a pair of denim skinny jeans create a decidedly casual, rustic look that’s perfect for a fall outing or a day catching up on some work at the coffee shop. A shawl wrap can be layered with a variety of tops ranging from cashmere crewneck sweaters to white t-shirts to blouses. It’s really one of the simplest ways to elevate an already great outfit to another dimension.
Stumped on what to get your girlfriends, mother, daughter, or any other woman in your life for Christmas, a birthday, or some other occasion? The shawl wrap fits the bill perfectly. Unlike other articles of clothing, you don’t have to worry about shopping for the right size or making sure it’s in a style she will like. You’d be hard-pressed to find any woman who doesn’t appreciate a good shawl wrap. It’s stylish, practical, comfortable, and possesses the ability to accentuate an outfit whether it’s a T-shirt dress or a smart pant and blouse combination. When you are gifting someone a shawl wrap during the winter season, they will appreciate receiving a gift that will keep warm during those harsh, cold days. There are many styles, colors, and materials to choose from, but few shawl wraps are as decadently soft and warm as a Sherpa-lined shawl wrap. With a colorful, print design on the outside and an unbelievably comfy material on the inside, a shawl like this encompasses the best of both worlds.
These are some of the top reasons to invest in a high-quality shawl wrap, but we are sure that after buying one yourself, you will come up with even more reasons to love this fashion staple. Whether you are shopping for one for yourself or someone you love, one thing is certain: No one will dislike receiving such a colorful, stylish, and practical article of clothing. You’ll start to wonder how you ever made it through those dreary winter months without one!
