A silk scarf wrapped daintily around one's neck is a classic look.
It transports me to another time, while being translated into a modern style.
It makes me feel worldly. French.
I think of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, 1953. Elizabeth Taylor in Giant with that white scarf wrapped around her hair, 1956. Grace Kelly on so many occasions. Even Stevie Nicks used the accessory to play with mixing textures, colors and volume in the 70s.
The first Hermes silk scarves and the women who wore them, 1937 and beyond.
Audrey herself once said, "When I wear a silk scarf I feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman."
There is no plane of time nor fashion trend that this look can not transcend.
I have a very short list of modern fashion icons. However, Alexandra Dieck of Lexicon of Style makes that list. Not only is she an edgy girl who is rarely without a scarf, she designs her own line of the luxurious things.
Taking a page from Alexandra's playbook and mixing the classic scarf look with my own more urban style, I purchased this bit of silk and added it to one of my more common outfit combinations. I can tell you with totality that this scarf will not be my last.
I must become a collector.
How do you feel about this classic look?
Are you ready to give it a try?
I can promise, you will walk with a little extra spunk with a silk scarf caressing your neck.
