Scarves & How To Wear Them!

Scarves,How to

I think winter wear is communal. You get some gloves and a scarf from a lost-and-found, wash them, wear them for a while until you lose them. Then somebody else does the same thing.'

It seems people have either a love or hate relationship when it comes to scarves or is it just more confusing to those trying to wear them? 
Scarves come in all different sizes, materials, shapes and an abundance of colors and patterns. Personally, when buying a scarf I take the same steps when buying a tie, taking into account color, length, and composition.

Color

Firstly, thinking of a base color, then deciding whether I'm after a pattern or just a solid.
Knowing this ill make it easier to find what you're looking for whilst shopping. 

Length

The length is a considerable part, you want to think about how you are going to wear it and what you visually like, for example; If it's a shorter scarf to just cover the neck or a long scarf to wrap around/ tuck into a jacket. 

Composition

Finally, it's the composition, what kind of materials I should buy? Which the answer depends on the last question. If you're wanting to wrap it around your neck and layer a jacket over it, a medium wool, cashmere or alpaca will work fine.


If you're wanting to wrap it around your neck and have it sit over your clothes you can go for a heavier/thicker wool scarves. Lastly, if you are wanting to wear it under a jacket and wrap it around your neck, go for the fine cotton or silk scarves including the blends.
