The first signs of autumn are undeniably visible, and while some of us are desperately trying to hold on to the remnants of summer, the hard truth is that autumn is well and truly on its way. One of the most important transition wardrobe pieces in your wardrobe is your scarf.
Apart from using your scarf as a stylish accessory, your scarf will provide warmth for both the summer-autumn transition period and the colder months thereafter. For this reason, it is vital that you invest in good quality scarves that will serve you well during the colder months. Opt for a combination of plain, bright colours and pattered scarves.
There are three must have scarves you should aim to introduce to your wardrobe or reclaim from your scarf drawer:
Probably the most versatile scarf. Perfect for smart casual occasions. Simply loop it around your neck European style or let it hang loose in a cowl neck. Wraps come with infinite possibilities to reinvent your signature look. Here are some of my favourites:
