The first widely recognised mention of a scarf is in Ancient Egypt, when Queen Nefertiti is believed to have worn an embellished headpiece over a woven necktie. In Ancient Rome, linen versions were used to clear away sweat on working men, and many countries have used coloured scarves to indicate ranks in the military throughout history.
Symbols of comfort and warmth, scarves have rightfully earned their status as winter wardrobe essentials. From bright checkered prints to vibrant colorblock styles, this season’s scarves feel modern and exciting. Typically made in a wool blend, knit or cashmere fabric, they will provide plenty of warmth, and often add a little luxe, too. Draped over a top and paired with trousers, a solid-coloured scarf will lend any look some sophistication.
There are even more ways to wear them depending on the other kinds of scarves you have like square ones or infinity ones, but longer rectangular ones are arguably the most basic and popular style during the colder months. From silk scarves to winter scarves, there are many different models, fabrics and length, you have just to find the right one for you.
