“A scarf is more than just an accessory; it has the power to transport your style to another time or place.” …Lauren Friedman
Like the little black dress or black jacket; beautiful scarves are a timeless fashion accessory that embody elegance, personal style, art and the old world charm and magic of Paris back in the 1950's
If you read my blog post My Favourite 6 Ways To Tie A Scarf you would know that I am a lover of scarves. Every time I go on holidays I seek out the local art collective and look for a new scarf. I also love searching for scarves at the second hand shop, op shop as well as supporting local artists who print scarves onto original natural fabrics.
What I love about scarves is that you can style each scarf in a myriad of ways. Whether you’re wearing a scoop, square neck, or even going strapless, there’s a bow, a drape, or a knot for the occasion. You can even turn your scarf into a headband, a shawl, or a clutch.
At the moment I am binging on everything that Lauren Friedman is painting and writing, and I wanted to share her work with you 50 Ways To Wear A Scarf, coupled with telling the story of scarves and how they speak to us personally and uniquely through all the changing seasons of our life.
