Wrap It Up! Fashion Style

When I was still an entertainer, and thin, I used to extend my stage wardrobe and my street wardrobe with scarves of all sizes and lengths. I was quite good at the art of wrap. No, not that kind of rap, fashion wrap. Something fashion designers, dancers and entertainers alike have learned to do from as early as the 17oo’s, maybe even longer.

Most people think of scarves as something to throw over your shoulders, tie around your neck, or head, and that is about it for most people, but did you know, you can create wearable dresses, tops, pants, skirts, and so much more, with a single scarf or piece of fabric. They are also not just for summer or spring, you can create and wear a wrapped scarf at any time of the year, as you will soon learn as I continue to bring you new ways to Wrap It Up! Fashion Style!

Let’s look into this a bit, with a new collection of scarves I recently added to my store. This one I have ordered 4 of my own as test products, and will most likely be one of the styles I will use in the upcoming future to show you more and more new wrap designs.

This next one is a perfect scarf for not just neck and shoulder wraps, but you would be surprised at how much more you can create with a scarf this size. I have also bought myself this brown one as well.

I have always loved scarves, and since I recently found some gorgeous scarves, and sarongs to add to the stores collections, I thought I would add some info and ideas for using these awesome wardrobe extenders to the blog, and to some of the product pages in the store.  Below is a video from awhile back that I found inspiring, and hope you do too.

I have several new styles of scarves, sarongs, and pashimas to add to the store, but as always, I like to test some of these items out myself before doing so, and my mailbox is awaiting future additions. So if you love scarves as much as I do, or want to learn more about how this wonderful wardrobe addition can work for you, check out what our shop has to offer, and join the mailing list to stay on top.

Till then, Happy Wrapping!
