You can never have too many, can you?
If you, like me, are a scarf aficionado, then your collection just keeps growing, doesn’t it? You find an outfit is no longer complete without a scarf. You start to seek out scarves in different sizes, different fabrics, wool and silk, cashmere and linen, different colour-ways, and before you know it you have built up a collection of beautiful scarves that you save for special occasions and every-day scarves that you wear with anything and everything!
And if you love scarves as I know from our conversations that so many of you do, then to give someone else the gift of a beautiful scarf is a natural progression. And there is no better time to do this than Christmas. A carefully chosen scarf is always appreciated. It is personal without being too personal, in the way that perfume can be. It is also such a versatile choice – you are never too young or old to wear a scarf – and there really is a price range to suit every budget. And with the ease of on-line shopping here at Scarf Room, it is one-stop, headache-free shopping as we have such a huge collection of silks, linens, wools and cashmere-mixes, as well as beautiful designs from floral through to paisley.
To help you make your Christmas shopping just a little easier, I found several willing models of all ages from our team and their family members and sent each of them into the stockroom to chose their favourite scarf. I hope this helps you in your shopping quest by giving you some inspiration and several ideas. So, introducing the team (and their family):-
The Glamorous Grandma
Jen has chosen the Hot Pink, Purple & Yellow Floral Print Pure Silk Scarf; a beautiful silk scarf from our capsule silk collection, choosing to tie it with a side knot. An elegant addition to any wardrobe to be worn both over simple knitwear during the day and elegant evening wear at night. Or do what the Italians do and tie a silk scarf around a day or evening bag. Keep an eye on our website for new additions to our silk collection coming in from Italy.
The Fashion-savvy Grand-daughter
Ellie chose the Super Soft Fringed Modal Mix Light Weight Pashmina in hot pink. An easy-to-wear and beautifully soft pashmina injecting a fizzy pop of pink into any outfit. Our lightweight pashminas come in a beautiful palette of colours, think bright orange, all-round favourite black and subtle soft baby blue, as well as seasonal silver and white. A beautiful must-have for your all-year round wardrobe.
The Funky Teenager
Abbey looks gorgeous in the Super Soft Mulberry Italian Winter Pashmina Shawl Wrap Scarf. It looks great double-wrapped around her neck and teamed, as Abbey has done, with an on-trend oversized boyfriend knit. It also will keep her very warm! These luxurious pashminas form part of our wonderful Made in Italy collection and come in an on-trend palette of winter colours, finished with gentle fringing to complete the look.
The On-Trend Mum
Animal print is always popular, especially at Christmas. Marie has selected our ever-popular Large Leopard Animal Print Scarf. At Scarf Room, we adore our animal print and have an enviable collection of animal print from leopard through cheetah to zebra that look stunning particularly over block colour for both day and evening wear.
The Darling Sister
Jade looks gorgeous in her Turquoise Patterned Pashmina. This is a new addition to our beautiful capsule collection of patterned pashminas. This one features an elegant paisley print in an on-trend palettte of turquoise and silver and is finished with gentle fringing to complete the look. Available in a variety of designs, many of which are reversible, and stunning colour-ways. We think they work perfectly over both day or evening wear. These very affordable, beautiful scarves allow you to inject a touch of bold individuality to your daytime and evening outfits. Gorgeous!
The Cool Best Friend
Kelly made a bee-line for the Denim & Navy Leopard Print Fringed Italian Micro-modal Scarf. Another animal print but this time in micro-modal. If you have never worn modal before, it is worth investigating. A natural fabric which gives your scarf a little more volume to hold its shape, enabling you to style it more easily and wear it in a variety of creative and individual ways.
The Sophisticated Colleague
Rebecca decided to get into an early Christmas spirit by choosing this Beige Knitted Reindeer Tassel Christmas Scarf. A lovely lightweight woolly scarf with an on-trend Scandi-feel featuring a seasonal knitted reindeer design that is also available in both navy and green.
And finally, don’t forget to chose a little something for that special person in your life – you! One of my current favourites is the Soft Cashmere Mix Scarf in Mauve Pink, a beautiful winter colour. These cashmere-mix scarves are another part of our premium Made in Italy range. It is gorgeous worn loose or, as I have done, doubled up to create an individual look. I am going to treat myself to this for Christmas as I’ll be able to wear it with everything!
