A scarf is the accessory if you want to save yourself time and money. It is certain to help change your look regularly.
Every time the charabanc of London Fashion Week waltzes out of town, I ask myself: what about us mere mortals who can’t cab it to the catwalk every morning?
Most of us are painfully aware that there is more we should be doing to achieve a pulled-together look for work and play. Could be for the big interview, or significant birthday, or those landmark personal moments when we really would like to ‘look our best’.
This, in my case at least, collides head on with my stubborn streak of logic which screams. It runs ‘I have invested time, emotion and not-inconsiderable resources in this outfit, so buying another one would be utterly wasteful!’
And you don’t need to, according to my new image consultant friend. She says “A perfect scarf is an above-the-waist wave at fashion without destroying your hard won reputation for being above it.”
A scarf is more than a simple textile for keeping warm. These days, a beautiful scarf is a super clever way of keeping your monochromatic go-tos on the go.
A scarf gives a quick colour injection that makes you look new again every season. It also cunningly reinvents your investment pieces so no one will notice!
Chosen well – it really should have that extra something – it gives you instant attitude, discreet aplomb and, if absolutely on the mark, will even do to your complexion what ‘colour consultants’ will charge a small fortune for.
This beautiful cashmere/silk unisex scarf by thoroughly English label Wallace Sewell is up to the challenge. Perfect for work or country/park walks?
Style Tip: Choose your favourite coloured stripe. Match it with a top/pullover in the same colour for instant impact.
