It’s official, for Fall 2017 scarves are THE power accessory.
They were EVERYWHERE on the runways, draped over the head and knotted around the chin at Stella McCartney, worn kerchief style at Gucci and tied tightly in the form of a choker at my beloved Chloe.
Silk scarves have long been a fashion girl’s go-to accessory to punch up pretty much any outfit. They can be soft and sweet, chic and refined or have a rock n roll edge.
There is something just so perfectly polished and luxurious about a silk scarf. Plus, there so many ways to wear them, you can style your scarf differently every season or even every wear.
The beauty of a scarf is that there is no need for a necklace. Instead of reaching for that typical necklace switch it up with a scarf. Wrap it around your neck and tie in a bow, fasten it tightly and tie in a knot or let it drape loosely, you really can’t go wrong. It’s a great way to add a pop of color, the perfect accompaniment to a tailored menswear inspired look and the ultimate solution to a “This look is missing something” dilemma.
Scarves are one of the areas (as well as shoes and handbags) that I tend to “invest”. A quality silk scarf can last a lifetime. I have had this McQueen one for 6 years and I wear it ALL the time. It’s full of memories, always makes me smile and I feel glamorous EVERY TIME I wear it. Well worth the price tag.
Stylist Tip: Taking good care of your luxury scarf is crucial. Make sure you store your scarves in the boxes they came in. The acid-proof paper inside the box is a perfect environment for when you’re not wearing your scarf. Avoid wearing your scarf on a rainy day, dry clean only and NEVER EVER iron it. After wearing, make sure to leave your scarf out and let it breathe over night before folding and putting away.
