Journey to the land of Pashmina
I always tell people that "you can never go wrong with Pashminas." It is such a versatile accessory that it does not matter even if you buy them in bulk in all sorts of colors and designs. Black, brown, beige, and grey pashminas are the basic kinds and will go with any outfits. However, if you want to add some colors and designs to your pashminas this fall- go ahead!
Lately, a pashmina is starting to become a fashion staple than just another fall/winter accessory as a result of famous celebrities parading them in various colors and styles all across the world. Even though this soft, intricate cloth is considered to be as old as the ancient civilization., it is believed that the demand of pashmina started to rise at a startling rate when designers from London, New York, and Paris started incorporating them in their collections in 1998 (according to pashminainternational.com).
Celebs and their love for Pashminas
Even though, pashminas originally came from the region of Kashmir and were used ideally by people to withstand harsh weather conditions, lately the demand for this shawl has been growing by leaps and bounds due to high-end magazines like Vogue and Elle popularizing the item as a luxurious product for the rich and famous.
Pashminas come in various designs and colors to meet the growing popularity among people, I personally prefer a pashmina that has a higher silk blend to it just because the way it feels. You can buy these shawls online or even at department stores like Macy's and Nordstrom.
You can wear a pashmina in many different ways. Do not shy away from experimenting with different styles. Add your personal touch and give your outfit just the right finishing touch.
