Ways of Styling This Versatile Clothing
The common phrase ‘make or break a look’ is often used for stoles. Therefore, styling it correctly is essential.
Jewellery must be picked out accurately, for the incorrect pair of earrings might end up transforming the look of the outfit from classy to odd. Draping stoles like a shrug or a tank top is one of the most popular ways of styling a stole. Another chic and trendy way is to spread the stole around the T-shirt and fasten it with a belt. With this outfit, one can add life to any outing. Speaking of belts, if regular clutch belts get too monotonous, a stole can also act as a substitute accessory. It can bring about a vintage charm to ordinary denim. If one pleases a unique way of protection from the scorching heat, a stole can be braided to form a scarf. This brightens up a scarf-look and makes stepping out of the house with a cloth on one’s head fashionable. Black dresses have no chances of running out of style but a new way to sparkle up a dress is always welcome and appreciated. A radiant stole can be draped over a black dress and buckling it with a bejewelled belt will bring out a whole new dimension to the outfit.
History of Stoles
Many may consider stoles to be a clothing item that originated in the 1900s. This assumption is incorrect. Shocking as it may seem, studies say that stoles originated around the 6th century. It was first thought to be of Jewish origin but today, historians regard them to originate from a liturgical napkin, namely, Orarium.
They were initially used by the women as shawls to be draped over their shoulders. They were also used in the pre-Roman Italic region by priests, during holy rituals. Stoles were then adopted by various locales. They were such an influential form of fashion that they were adopted by the Roman Catholic Church. Stoles slowly loomed their way into becoming a sign of dignity. They were embedded with more intricate, delicate and ornate designs.
It was a garment used as a mark for social hierarchy. It was used as a designation for a specific rank or organisation. Only people with high profile occupations had the right to wear stoles. It was symbolic of ministry but as times changed, the value of stoles began to lean towards fashion rather than hierarchy.
Being made of polyester, stoles are extremely comfortable, without losing a fashionable touch. The material is easy to wash and one must not necessarily use branded or expensive detergents to clean this garment. They are one of the most convenient forms of garments since while travelling they will not take up much space. They also serve as a stylish means of receiving respite from the heat. They are intricately designed with vivid colours and patterns and their versatile uses and styling options for one stole are worth every penny.
As stated before, stoles have originated in the 6th century and were used as a mark for authority and served as a status symbol. Being an artefact of such historical value and being a part of almost every fashion cycle, stoles are a must have clothing.
