It’s felt like October in London for about 6 months now. Spring just won’t come.
So it’s lucky I’m a big fan of scarves. I have hundreds of them. Well not hundreds, but let’s just say they take up a fairly significant amount of space in my wardrobe. This is no accident. It’s because scarves are magic – they can make or break an otherwise dull or beautiful outfit.
Here are a few of my favourites.
This silk and cashmere blend Sandro scarf is HUGE and when it’s really cold I just wrap myself up in it in a variety of ways. It’s very soft, warm and comfortable and goes with everything. Every wardrobe needs one of these.
This scarf by Johnstons of Elgin is 100% Scottish cashmere and is incredibly soft. It’s beige on one side and light grey on the other, so it works for any number of different outfit combinations.
This snood by Joseph is my go to scarf for when I need to simply grab one and go. It’s not as warm as the big cashmere ones but it’s definitely easier to throw on than they are.
A Pop of Colour
This shawl came all the way from Pakistan, I guess you could say it’s vintage. I found it in my mother’s wardrobe years ago and never let it go. I’ve no idea what it’s made of but I love it for its exoticness and uniqueness.
This Brora stole is angora and wool. I would never have bought it myself but was given it as a Christmas present and adore it. It’s so unusual and intricate. It’s also very cosy indeed. Almost like a very beautiful wearable blanket.
A Touch of Elegance
Yves Salomon rabbit Scarf. So soft it’s a bit slippery.

Gerard Darel rabbit scarf. Kind of doubles as a gilet.

Fox Fur Collar by Gerard Darel – very elegant, warm and easy to wear.
Rabbit fur leopard scarf by Gerard Darel. Incredibly elegant over a dark coat.
See I told you – I’m not short on scarves.
