To get well-dressed doesn’t depend only from if this accessory goes with this outfit or if this print goes well with this other one…the first thing you have to know before you choose or buy a cloth is what is your morpholgy? It looks insignificant but actually it is the most important question to know what to wear. In this post, we are going to see which cloth to wear with you morphology… Let’s started!!

For the Rectangle: It is a twig silhouette, a tall and slim woman, athletic with a little chest and hips, but your shoulders, waist and hips have a really good symmetry. For you, the best is to banish printed colored clothes which will made you bigger than you are and to favour fluid cuts which will not emphasized the waist.

For the Apple: the apple silhouette is for strong and luscious women, all the body parts are in curves (shoulders,legs,hips..) and the waist is not much emphasized. You have to banish the clothes in stretch which will hug you too much and favour fluid cuts. You can also wear low V or U-necked and straight jackets. You can also wear your scarf falling on each side of your chest to make you look taller.

For the Pear: If your shoulders build is slimmer than your hips, it means that you are in A, like a pyramide. You are narrowed-shoulders but luscious on your hips and buttocks. You have to stress on the top of your body to balance the whole silhouette. Choose low V-necked or low U-necked and on the bottom stay unobtrusive with a straight skirt or a straight trousers.

For the Hourglass: The hourglass silhouette is also considered as the ideal silhouette. You have a very slim waist and your shoulders and hips are perfectly aligned. If you have this silhouette, you are so lucky because you can wear everything you want, so make the most by bringing a touch of madness to your outfit.

For the Inverted Triangle: You have a V silhouette, it means that you are broad-shouldered with a chest and a waist not much emphasized. This kind of silhouette indicates athletic people. You can wear boat, asymmetrical neck and V-neck. You have to run away from shoulder pad jackets and tops with slim straps. On the bottom, you can bring some volume by wearing patterns and printed or for example trapeze skirt.

The different scarves in history

 Let me introduce you to a new chapter of scarves’s history : Today we are going to tell you more about the past and the evolution of the scarf during the centuries, their ways to tie scarves… Follow the guide, you will know everything there is to know.

The origin of the French word “foulard” (scarf) is uncertain, but it seems that the word finds its origins from the French verb “fouler” which refers to the technique of crushing – before the advent of textile machines, people stepped on the textiles under feet like grapes to soften the fabric and strengthen the fibres.

In the Middle Ages, the history of the scarf is intertwined with that of the veil.  Ladies from the nobility wore the Hennin, which was a pointed hat, often with two horns of variable height adorned with a veil on its end. The height determined the nobility and the extent of the lady’s wealth. It was women’s key fashion accessory in 1440.

The hennin

Indeed, French women have long worn caps, while the scarf remained an economic and practical choice. In the 18th century it was common to include scarves, ribbons, feathers and even plants or fruits in the headdress.

Today scarves in France can of course be worn in many different ways: tied on the forehead or neck it highlights the beauty of the face, worn on the waist it enhances the finesse of the silhouette. There are also different ways to tie the scarf on the head:

The rustic way to tie a scarf is very simple. Fold the scarf into a triangle, attach the widest part on the forehead, and tie the ends underneath the hair.

Pirate way to tie a scarf – ideal for the sea and the beach, it protects the hair against the sun, wind and sand. This method is similar to the rustic way, but the knot does not go under the hair but to the side, like with a bandana.

And now about shawls. This word comes from the Persian word “schal”.

The fashion of shawls came to Europe after the Egyptian campaign of Napoleon Bonaparte. Thus Napoleon had brought to his beloved Josephine de Beauharnais many gifts, among which large quantities of cashmere and of course cashmere shawls.

Josephine de Beauharnais had 400 shawls, she attached them to her dresses, she used them as bedspreads, she made pillows from them and even used them for her dog’s bed.

Very soon in France shawls production of different cloths started. The shawl quickly gave birth to a narrow scarf, which was a winter accessory essential to protect oneself from the cold, and in summer it was turned into a light shawl, which served only as ornament.

Thereafter, the shawls became luxury items and they cost a small fortune. It was humiliating and devastating for ladies not to have it in their wardrobe. And if their budgets were not sufficient to allow them to buy at least one shawl, some could get it as a gift from a wealthy admirer.

Today shawls can complete costumes or can be used as a light blanket, for instance.
