Stoles and Scarves
"Money doesn't buy elegance. You can take an inexpensive sheath, add a pretty scarf, gray shoes, and a wonderful bag, and it will always be elegant."
Caroline Herrera, fashion designer and icon
A scarf or a stole is that perfect item of clothing that has the power to enhance your look rather than overwhelm it. From Nefertiti to Cleopatra, style icons over the years have delighted in the warm embrace of an elegant scarf or a silken stole. In India and South Asia, a covering veil known sometimes as a dupatta (du - two, patta - strip of cloth) has symbolised modesty from ancient times. Today the dupatta has evolved with fashion and is synonymous with the scarf or stole and worn with various outfits both ethnic and Western.
There are many ways of wearing a scarf depending on its size and length. It can be worn wound around the neck or carelessly tossed over your shoulder. Whichever style you choose to drape your stole, it is guaranteed to add glamour and style to any ensemble.
