Have you ever thought of turning conventional wisdom topsy-turvy and, instead of working your outfit around your shoes or dress, build it around your scarf instead? When I bestowed the scarf in these pictures with the role of protagonist rather than just accessory, my scarf pulled it off rather well.
I’ve been unwittingly looking for an oversized, striped scarf ever since I saw this one (that had already sold out) last year. I finally found a dream substitute that in my view even trumps the original. The colours are just perfect. I believe the scarf looks best with a simple outfit in camel, nude or brown tones, without bells and whistles. Don’t try knocking the protagonist off its throne.
This scarf is, in contrast with its happy owner, a multitasking heroine. With its oversized shape and colour block stripes, it adds a dose of insouciance and texture. Worn over a warm coat, it can act as an extra winter weapon in frosty temperatures but, worn with a sweater (as in these pictures), it can provide the cosy feeling of being all bundled up even if the temperatures don’t feel anything like winter. It can be folded and twisted into countless styles or do double duty as a wrap-yourself-in-it blanket. Or what about using it in a hotel, just to cover one of those pictures hotel managers all over the world seem to adore (an excellent idea by Bali Barret, artistic director at Hermes)? I’d love to hear how you’d use it.
