Pashmina Shawl Color Concepts

Pashmina shawl enhancing your facial features

A pashmina shawl enhances your facial features. It is one of the advantages of wearing one when attention is directed towards the face. Because it has become a popular trend for many, designers around the world see to it that they come up with the most attractive and suitable colors for all skin tones. A pashmina shawl should not only match your clothes but your natural skin color as well. There may be shades that fit your grandest attire but will clash with your skin color.

Think outside the box

The usual notion with pashmina shawls is light matches dark and dark accentuates light. But a lot of designers tried thinking out of the box. They tried it on the runway with their models and the effect was rather overwhelming.

Clothes you did not think of matching a pashmina with do look good. Among the different outfits that were showcased was sportswear. One of which was golf clothes. Okay, so it is not a requirement to look chic while playing golf, but a little fashion will not hurt either.

Wild color combinations

If there was a phrase to describe the fearless innovation of wild color combinations, it is bubble burst. Why? Because the exciting display of colors truly bursts the traditional bubble of limiting a certain group of colors.

Light and loud colors were experimented with such as bright orange, yellow green, lemon yellow and bright red to name a few. The models of these pashmina shawls and sports apparel seem to be glowing bright. From top to bottom, each was bathe in a blinding yet wonderful glow.

Dark skin tone

You might wonder how about the dark-skinned men and women? It always has been observed that bright colors do not really complement dark skin tone. However, there is a way to go around that idea. In contrast to what we were supposed to believe, people with dark skin can still wear bright colors. The secret to it is to find the one that does not have a silky or shiny feel.

Light skin tone

Oftentimes when a pashmina wrap of very bright colors are worn by light to fair women, we tend to think that it only looks good on them. But a matte shade of any bright color you want to wear will neutralize the clash that happens when bright means dark. If you really desire on wearing loud colors but hesitate – maybe you are not sure of your skin tone – then going for a plain designed pashmina shawl is a safe option.


With any skin tone, one thing to consider too is the color of your eyes. It will help you in determining which one suits you. Neutral colors are the safest choices but if you try on a distinct set of shades you might discover something better. Light to fair skin tones can freely choose which color they want, AND the same goes with dark skin too.

With dark shades of a pashmina shawl, you cannot go wrong, but with lighter ones, make sure you wear something to even out unnatural color combination. A white top or an earth color clothing will make it work.
