My daughter once asked me, if I wear a scarf tied around my neck so regularly, because I’m cold?

Oh no, I answered promptly – I wear them for the chic, edgy feel they give me!

The really interesting thing about neckerchiefs is their ability to imbue a whole different feeling on each wearer.

Depending on the chosen print, the dominant colour, the size of the scarf – larger square or smaller square – and the way that you knot them, you attain something entirely different. 

One person achieves nonchalance, another demure polish, and yet another rebellious chic. There’s an attitude tied in that little knot.

Stories of the self told with a simple, but eloquent scarf!
