I LOVE jewelry! but sometimes it doesn’t cut it. It is also not easy or wise to travel with jewelry. Enter my collection of scarves. I also LOVE scarves. I am fortunate to have been given some beautiful ones and inherited a few very unique ones.
When we travel we tend to have basic, solid color pieces to make things easy and packing light. BORING! Scarves are lightweight and can add a lot of style to a simple t-shirt. I don’t do complicated knotting. The goal is to get ready quickly and only look high maintenance.
35 inch square scarves are very versatile. My favorite way is to style an inexpensive cotton t-shirt. Make a triangle and knot it. Toss it on or wrap the triangle around your throat and knot it in front for two very different, sophisticated looks. I find every scarf has a personality. You need to be unafraid and experiment with each one to find how you and it work together.
Scarves come in many fabrics and weights. This Hermes scarf is silk twill and has a lot of body. It can feel a bit like it is wearing you. Happily, the Hermes website has some instructions. This triple knot is a great way to tame a stiff scarf.
These are not all my scarves, but no collection is complete without the scarf that you thought would be great but doesn’t seem to work with anything.
Caring for your scarves.
I always wash by hand with a very gentle detergent. Euclan is designed for wool but is it good for silk as wool and silk are both proteins. Roll them up in a towel to remove excess water then dry flat if you can.
