Function – Scarves do a great job of protecting your neck in warmer climes because they excel at protecting it from the beating sun. They also act as barrier between your sweater or jacket and soiling that can occur from make up, moisturizers, perspiration, body oils… well, you get the idea.
Form – You can take your scarf beyond the realm of function and into a fashion statement just by how you knot it. We’ve found a couple of great links – for men and for women. Both also feature links to videos. Take a moment to check them out.
Flair – As a fashion accessory, scarves can give a splash of color or interest to an otherwise commonplace outfit. For men, a colored cashmere scarf can brighten up the look of a sedate dark overcoat or sweater, and for those in the vanguard of fashion, a light weight scarf can even serve in lieu of a necktie. For women, an interesting knot or an eye-catching pattern can make you feel like a million dollars by turning an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one.
Best of all, scarves are timeless, and not as subject to the whims and vagaries of fashion trends. So treat your scarves well…it’s one item in your wardrobe that truly will never go out of style.
The new year is here, and that means it’s a good time for some of us to think about stepping outside our fashion comfort zones with regard to scarves.
Scarves have the potential to be so much more than a cold weather accessory… for both men and women. So, if you are in the mood to explore the possibilities, scroll down for our thoughts about this. You’ll also find a couple of great links to help you find the right scarf look for yourself, and the step by step instructions on how to do it.
We wish you all the best in 2016, and look forward to seeing you soon.
Take care, Patricia, Bake and Your Shaffer Cleaning Team
