Wearing a winter scarf or a wrap sounds very simple; it is however, if we do it with a little extra effort, this accessory can make our entire look!
Back to 2002 when I was learning French in Paris, on a late Autumn day as I strolled about the city – as I always do whenever I’m in Paris. I remember seeing a well dressed young man walking my way. This fine looking man wore a well fitted navy blazer with a blue velvet scarf tied as a bow around his neck – a large bow!
‘Wow! Here comes a prince!’ I said to myself. I was stunned by how elegant he looked when this ‘prince of style’ walked past me. Clearly years later this European ‘prince’ and his posh ensemble is still impressing me. Since then I haven’t seen any men wearing big velvet bows around their necks like he did…
As for this winter, the neck wear is chunky, knitted and large! In other words, it’s much more laid back compares to a big velvet bow.
Well, if you are into knitting, now’s the perfect time to knit yourself a chunky version of this season’s trendest accessories!
