Contrary to what some people think, a scarf can reasonably be worn all year round in almost any weather. All you need is a scarf with the appropriate fabric and the right style wear.
Fabric: wool? perfect in the winter; insufferable in the summer time. Cotton? suitable in the spring or the summer; not exactly the best to beat the chill though.
Maybe you feel more comfortable with a synthetic or semi-synthetic fabric such as polyester or modal? If so… think twice! Other the fact that polyester is not environmental friendly, it doesn’t “breathe” and therefore is not always pleasant to wear. As for modal, it is prone to stretching and shrinking. Not good.
Don’t despair! From time immemorial, silk has been known for its amazing properties and is definitely worth the investment. The molecular structure of this natural fiber makes it enjoyable to wear in any season.
Yet, despite the fact that silk has miraculous properties, you may feel uncomfortable with a tight silk scarf around your neck when the temperature reaches 80-90F… Who wouldn’t? Again do not despair! There are many ways to wear your silk scarf and to feel nonetheless at ease, even when the weather is getting really hot. Trust ANNE TOURAINE Paris™: we sell silk scarves to customers from all over the world and we are here to help you find the appropriate scarf styles to enjoy (or fight) the elements all year round, wherever you live and whatever the season is!
No need to say: on a very cold day, priority #1 is to stay warm. There is no better season for a tight neck scarf. Wrap it once or twice around your neck; in any case make sure your cleavage is always covered.
Another option is to turn your scarf – as long as its size allows it – into a comfy shoulder wrap over a coat or a sweater.
It is women’s worst enemy: in a few seconds the wind will mess up the nicest hairstyle. The best solution is to stay home and wait until the wind dies down… or to fight the element with glam. It’s time for a à la Grace Kelly or à la Audrey Hepburn headscarf.
The good news is that the women’s worst enemy can easily be tamed. Rather than fighting the wind, why not playing with it and becoming friends? Take advantage of the weather and grab a scarf. Tie it as a long neck scarf, belt or headband and let it fly romantically in the wind.
To be honest with you, silk and rain do not go along very well. Unfortunately, rain drops can damage silk fabric. The only recommendation we suggest is that, whatever the scarf style you opt for (neck scarf, headscarf) you make sure you have your umbrella – just like the Queen of England does….
Here we are… “It is impossible to wear a scarf in warm weather”, wrongly say many (way too many) women. Sorry to say: do not dread the heat as summer is probably the best season to enjoy a silk scarf. There are plenty options to wear your favorite accessory when it’s hot.
Wear it loosely tied around your neck or turn it into silky necklace which will make you stand apart!
Tie it as a cute headband in your hair, around your ponytail or around your bun to create a lovely summer hair dress.
Think about customizing your straw hat with your silk scarf: irresistible!
What about a stunning silk halter top, a fancy beach cover up or a dazzling shoulder wrap?
Unless you prefer a silky belt…
Finally, think bandana!
As you see, there are plenty different ways to wear your ANNE TOURAINE Paris™ silk scarves in every season. If you don’t, you have no excuse!
