Hi Forum friends,

I own 15 scarves ( outside team fan scarves) and enjoy wearing them as an accessory in the transitional seasons and winter. I only really wear them around my neck but did experiment in my hair during lockdown.

I have split them into categories.

1) silk small scarves. I have two and these are worn relatively frequently. I like the jaunty feel of them.

2) long silk scarves. I rarely wear these four - two were lovely gifts. I could pass all of these on but storage is not an issue and I am sentimental.

3) large silky scarves. I wear the leopard one often. The vintage Noumea one is almost unworn by me but I want to wear it. The black and white with birds will be passed on.

4) large lightweight scarves. These are in frequent use. The mustard is not as favoured this year but has been a workhorse. The navy black and brown is often worn and I love it. And the cream, navy and grey one is almost worn out from such frequent wear.

5) large pashmina style
The caramel one is a workhorse. The ombré one is useful to lighten a look up. The black patterned one was an expensive almost mistake. I rarely wear this and may pass it on.

I wear scarves for warmth and to add in colour and texture. I don’t think I suit them particularly - a mid length hairstyle, short neck and curvy bust can make things feel busy and crowded. I did wear a couple bandanna style as a mask during the lockdown period here at the grocery store.

If I had to pick only three-

Caramel pashmina
Black brown and navy - I bought this for my Mum in Italy and she passed away without being able to wear it.
The pleated silk square - love the colours in this.

Over to you-

How many scarves do you own?
Which shapes work for you?
If you only had three which would you choose?
Has wearing a mask impacted on your scarf wearing?

I keep scarves a long time and two of these are vintage and inherited from my Mum ( plus the Italian new one from my Mum). I keep an eye out for scarves thrifting - two of these were thrifted. Four were gifts and the other six purchased new for myself.

Look forward to hearing about and seeing your scarves.
