Jake Gyllenhaal – actor and fashionista

Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the best actors who can do his roles effectively whether it is comical or dramatic. Seeing the Bubble Boy from year 2001, he was still a very young actor portraying a special boy. His acting evolved over time and his fashion choice as well.

Among his fashion preferences, he considers pashmina shawls to be part of his wardrobe. If you mention pashmina shawl, people would not react the way they used to, like “What is it?”

These classy cashmere pashmina scarves are already recognized by thousands of designers and celebrities around the globe. From the hot shades of the deserts to the cold regions, it has become a staple fashion accessory to those who are conscious of looking good.

Besides its fashion statement, the primary reason why one wears one is to keep them warm.

At the Santa Barbara Film Festival, Jake wears a black hat, black pashmina shawl and black suit. Judging from the color he chose, this is indeed one formal occasion to attend to. He looks very refined in his clothes – a gentleman. I love him wearing this kind of hat as it adds classiness to his overall appearance.

Amidst the strong rays of the sun, Jake wears a gray hat and shawl with his casual getup. Paired with vintage sunglasses, it tells us of a usual day for a very famous Jake Gyllenhaal. His shawl has different tones from light to dark. It matches the black and gray colors in his hat too.

One thing to notice with Jake is he wears a hat with his pashmina shawl most of the time. In a colder day than the last, he wears another hat but with a long-sleeved shirt this time. It must be his personal choice of matching a pashmina scarf with a corresponding hat. This boy has got some taste, I dare say!

Prince of Persia

In the sandy deserts of Persia from his hit movie the Prince of Persia, a movie version of the popular game, we also see him making use of a shawl. In lands as hot as theirs, it is no wonder that people wear it for different purposes, and one of which is protecting their skins from the harsh sun. A pashmina wrap can be seen being worn by most people there especially with royalty. The craft of making these stoles is tedious therefore the price that goes along with it is not friendly to the common people.

Protecting yourself from the heat or cold is what BOTH a pashmina shawl can do. It is very unlikely that other fashion accessories can do this too. A jacket would not be able to give you comfort from a very hot day unless you want to sweat all day in it.

Numerous men and women now appreciate the different comforts a pashmina scarf can give. From the extensive list of celebrities who like wearing these shawls, Jake Gyllenhaal is one splendid example of facing the hot and cold weather and still looking good while he is at it.

Tying a pashmina shawl – 2 easy ways

Pashmina shawls are much wanted among many men and women today that owning one is indeed a treasure. It is such because of the benefits one can get from simply wearing it. A pashmina shawl being cashmere makes it a great item not only for warmth but the added fashion factor it has.

A cashmere pashmina  is a great fashion accessory particularly when the winter season comes during the holidays. Even though the nature of these shawls is soft, they are made stronger by careful craftsmanship of various skilled pros in the field. Because it is soft and at the same time strong, it is a valuable piece of fashion accessory. However, there are only few countries who manufacture such accessory making it a bit costly.

During the winter months

During cold seasons, a cashmere shawl greatly helps in keeping the neck warm when worn. It can also cool you down during the summer. There are separate ways a pashmina shawl can be worn and it all depends how you want it to look with your outfit.

The primary and most usual way of wearing a pashmina includes two steps. First, put it over your head and let it cover your nape. Bring the two ends in front and tie it together like that of a knot. Most women, and men included, prefer this because it is a quick step especially if you are on the go.

I often see a lot of office ladies in the morning wear it like this – maybe because they were hurrying off. For some men, they make it as an alternative to their neckties.

When you are in your office clothes, it matches blazers too. Neckties can sometimes be boring to wear even if you have a new one. Not that you should get rid of your ties, but it always is good to feel and see men try out different sorts of fashion statements.

Another one is having imbalanced ends. Do the same step as above but this time, let one end be longer than the other. This type of tying a pashmina shawl is more appropriate with a casual look.

You can even spice it up more with a colorful pin or brooch of your liking. Brooches like flowers, angels and stars are popular choices. Although it would look good with an office attire, maintaining the formal aspect in a formal set of clothes will always be better.

Try wearing it with jeans or skirts, when you plan to go out with your girlfriends. For men, you can also try this out especially when you are wearing jackets or blazers. Let the ends hang loosely on front for that sophisticated add on.

It depends where and when you are going to wear your pashmina shawl but the above two are the easiest ways to glam up even when you are in a hurry. You do not need to spend too much time in front of the mirror because the presence of a pashmina shawl itself adds fab without too much effort.
