Styling A Vintage Silk Scarf
I found this scarf at a vintage sale last week. It was 50p. It's silk, and what I loved about it, besides my instant attraction to its bright colours, is that it is actually representative of Stornoway on the Scottish Isle of Lewis in the outer Hebrides, where I had a brilliant trip last year with my husband, dog, and a few friends. This would have likely been somebody's souvenir scarf from a trip to the highlands in days gone by. It's even signed by the artist, albeit I can't make heads or tails of the signature.
But now it's mine. Historically, I've never really been a great scarf person. I was the generation who felt that scarves were for our grandmothers, and that a really great way to add ten years to a look was to wear a scarf with it. But I'm coming around. When I think about it, I've always liked the way a wide scarf looks wrapped around the hair, as above, but have always felt that it was just a bit too much adjusting and re-tying as I went about my day. But I am changing my ways. I am learning to style scarves like the grown-up that I supposedly am. Here are just a few of the ways I have utilized this scarf in the short time that I've had it.
What about you? Are you a scarf person? How do you like to style your scarves?
