Ahh, the weather is cool again, especially in the mornings, and I’ve been getting reacquainted with my favorite scarves. Like this one from l’affaire cashmere, “Animal Spirit,” a wonderfully lightweight and soft leopard print scarf.
L’affaire cashmere has loads of lovely new scarves and stoles in stock. They source their cashmere from high altitude regions of India, Nepal and Tibet, and most are woven on handlooms. I’ve been so impressed with the lovely hand and wonderful quality of these scarves. They ship free worldwide too!
For those of you who would like to wear scarves more often but either are annoyed by a lot of bulk around the neck or feel intimidated by trying to tie scarves, below is a wonderfully easy arrangement that keeps your neck and chest warm, and stays put…no fiddling or fussing necessary.
1. Fold the scarf in half lengthwise, 2. drape around the neck with the loop on one side and the ends on the other, 3. pass one of the ends through the loop, 4. twist the loop a half turn, 5. pass the other end through the loop. Et voilà! This works beautifully under a jacket or coat too.
Do you have a favorite style or material for scarves?
