When shopping online you cannot touch or feel the texture of the evening wrap so the best thing to do is look at the dress you are trying to match and make a mental note if a chiffon wrap or a silk shawl or an embellshed evening wrap would look good with it. Dresses made from chiffon silk fabric look great with a chiffon silk wrap. You can match the shawl color to the dress color be innovative and choose a color lighter or darker than dress color to get a stunning effect or contrast it. My favorite way to buy a wrap for an evening dress is to match the sash of the dress or the accessories. If you are carrying a silver evening bag and silver shoes then a silver shawl ties the outfit together beautifully.
If you are wearing a warmer thicker fabric dress then match a wool shawl or Cashmere shawl or Pashmina wool shawl cape wrap to the dress. Also if the dress is of a light fabric but the season demands a warmer shawl as in fall and winter use a soft knit plush cashmere shawl (http://www.yourselegantly.com/
Faux Fur capes and shawls are ever so popular and look beautiful in winter. They give any dress a big lift and make the overall look stunning and appealing.

If you are wearing a solid dress you can wear a solid shawl or a paisley shawl or an animal print shawl, maybe a flowery shawl wrap or an embellished shawl. There is plenty of ways to look stunning and matchinga solid color dress is easy.
If the dress is busy and dressy with an embellished sequin, beaded overall look then choose a solid shawl to make it hold its beauty. A chiffon silk shawl or pashmina & silk wrap for spring and summer is ideal and a cashmere shawl or pashmina wool wrap is ideal for fall and winter. The evening shawl should be appropriate to the season for warmth and protection.
