I dont quite remember when the fashion of wearing stoles with just about everything came into being. But it did and made a lot of us slaves to it. Laced, knitted, embroidered... just about in every colour and every type you could imagine. You can team them up with old tops, with salwars or skrits for a whole new look and keep the chill away.
I went shopping yesterday to the Tibetan colony and bought a multi-coloured stole. The colours are mild and the cloth very soft. Be sure I will be wrapping myself up with it this season!
