Printed scarves are a wonderful way to add interest to an outfit without dominating. They are beautifully versatile and can be worn in a number of different ways. Eye catching prints are much more unique than simple block colours, they help to express individuality and assure that you stand out from the crowd. For anyone with an interest in sartorial styling, the printed scarf is a must. Printed scarves are especially great for off-duty outfits, particularly if you are opting for bold prints.

 

The perfect urban smart/casual look

A printed scarf can add colour and interest to a simple outfit. If you are looking for something that perfectly bridges the gap between formal and informal, then the printed scarf is the ideal choice. Wear your scarf alongside a well-tailored navy blazer, crisp white linen shirt, soft blue jeans and brown loafers. For extra style points, add a carefully folded pocket square in white and a block colour tie that echoes one of the colours featured in the scarf. Our Floral and Geometric Reversible Wool and Silk Scarf is perfect for this look. Wear your scarf open to fully exhibit the design.

 

 

 

The laid back relaxed vibe

A printed scarf can make your basic jeans and t-shirt casual wear appear instantly more alluring and interesting, especially if you add a blazer too. This look works beautifully if you choose a bold, modern print rather than anything too traditional or intricate. Our Black, Grey and Orange Reversible Wool and Silk Scarf is a great choice. Wear with dark navy jeans, a soft grey jersey t-shirt and a charcoal blazer. Loop around your neck to display the bolder pattern. The reverse side of this scarf features a more traditional paisley design that would be ideal for the urban smart/casual look described above.

 

 

 

Adding colour to your outerwear

 In the autumn and winter months we all benefit from a little extra warmth, which is why scarves become essential. Instead of getting overlooked in a sea of traditional scarves, this season gives you the perfect chance to inject a little extra colour into your wardrobe. Add an interesting printed scarf to your outerwear to show that you have a distinctive sartorial style. Our Tobacco and Biscuit Reversible Wool and Silk Scarf looks great when tucked into a woollen pea coat in camel, chocolate brown or black. If you want to stand out from the crowd then you need to consider every layer of your outfit, especially in the winter months when it becomes necessary to throw a coat over your ensemble.

 

 

As the weather turns cooler, it is the perfect time to explore the idea of the printed scarf. Let your individuality fly and opt for something in an interesting print with vibrant colours that can be echoed throughout your outfit. Once you get a taste for wearing printed scarves then they'll soon become part of your weekly wardrobe. Thankfully they work just as well in the summer months too, and are the perfect way to introduce pattern and colour to any outfit.
