That Is My Neck

I didn’t feel bad about my neck until I saw this photo (now carefully cropped to remove the full-on Tortoise Effect). Just as well this post is about scarves, then. Navy and khaki are two of the chicest grown-up colours, and so I was delighted to find this vintage men’s scarf at Leftovers in Brixton Market. It goes with everything. Well, everything I wear. A lot. Like denim, old military jackets and my lovely COS coat. Being collarless, the COS coat does require some assistance at this time of year.

Here are some more go-with-everything scarves:

Evie feather print scarf, £39,  Hobbs, available HERE.

Polka dot silk Saint Laurent scarf, £175, available HERE


Versace Baroque scarf, £155, available HERE.

Oh and I’ll be moving over to WordPress soon. Just fiddling about with fonts. Stay tuned.

  1. Great scarves! I'm wearing a floral print scarf today and it brightens my mood every time I look at it. Good luck with the WordPress migration! Can't wait to see the new format!

  2. I love that vintage scarf Alyson. WRT necks etc… I am frequently amazed at what "crops" up in photos…stuff that I hadn't noticed before….necks factoring greatly into this experience!

  3. Love the silk scarves. I am in a shibori class in Los Angeles. Weekly we choose colors, textures and design silk scarves (or other items) to dye. Lots of possibilities here for advanced style neck decoration.

  4. I have to say my favourites at this time are the infinity scarves. They are so easy to wear. Although, I do have a big collection of others. With winter in Canada, scarves are a must. Collarless coats scream for a scarf or turtleneck, don't you think?
    I now wish I had paid more attention to my neck. I've encouraged my daughters to treat their's the same as their face.

  5. Love the scarves…always my go-to accessory. But your neck revelation is why I never ever am photographed anymore. I like the picture of me in my head better!
