People used to believe that shawls and scarves were just for the ladies. However, this common notion is entirely FALSE. Lots of men enjoy using pashmina shawls particularly during cold mornings and winter.
Not only does it bring warmth, it adds style to anything he wears. Even formal clothes are sometimes paired with this stylish fashion accessory.
Pashmina shawl – a natural fashion accessory
A pashmina shawl is made from natural wool being produced from Himalayan goats. Once you wrap the shawl around your neck, you can feel the soft fabric gently hugging your skin. It is indeed perfect for winter.
A lot of Hollywood celebrities seem to enjoy this accessory as seen in separate occasions including several very important ones.
Ultimate heart throb Brad Pitt wears a dark shade of gray pashmina shawl. It matches his formal attire well and makes him look sexier. He wears it long, letting the rest of the shawl hang freely. Most men use neckties with their suits. It is a bold step to use a shawl instead. But as seen, it looks more enticing especially when you know what color of pashmina shawl to wear with your wardrobe.
Brad being bold
Another bold step he took is by complementing his cream suit with a grey pashmina shawl. He wraps it around his neck but this time hiding the rest inside his suit. The white shirt beneath it perfectly matches the contrasting color – gray.
But pashmina shawls are not limited to formal suits alone. It could go best with some casual attire too. Brad Pitt was having casual dinner with his wife Angelina Jolie. They do look good with each other, not only because both are good looking but also for their excellent choice of clothes. Here he wears a grey shirt under a long blazer with matching gray pashmina shawl. His hat perfectly goes with his brown leather shoes. A hint of fade browns makes the attire sexy casual.
A totally different bearded Brad Pitt accompanied by Angelina Jolie (who might be thinking too about the bizarre beard) looks quite peculiar but playful. He likes to wear white or dark colored shirts to match his shawls. The addition of knit hat completes the masculine ragged look.
The hit 2009 movie Inglourious Basterds feature Brad Pitt wearing a pashmina shawl most of the time. His German accent there was reasonably good and sexy, but his look was even more awesome. The movie is an extremely good one.
Now no more long beards this time but just a plain mustache. Whether a man sports a mustache or a beard, it will still go well with any shawl as we have seen with Brad Pitt.
And I can tell Angelina agrees with the way he dresses too. So, the next time you hear someone say pashmina shawls are exclusively for women, you would know that it is otherwise. And if someone close to you – especially a guy – has a birthday soon, be sure to check the shops for the right shawl for him.
