French women know a thing or two about adding the finishing touches to an outfit in an instant. One of our favourite accessories to do just that is a scarf. As an aside, in France, among the middle class (la bourgeoisie), it is de rigueur to receive your first 'foulard en soie
de chez Hermès' for your 18th birthday.
However, you don't have to wear silk scarves, nor designer ones for that matter to bring a bit of French chic to your ensemble. Choose any type of scarf, small, medium or large and learn to tie it in stylish ways, just like French women do.
Please read on to discover the ways a humble scarf can improve your style.
A scarf can:
- be so versatile due to the various ways it can be worn and tied
- pull the different colours of your outfit together
- brings bright colours towards your face
- give detailing to an otherwise simple outfit
- visually slim you down, if worn as a column down the middle of the body
- attract everybody's eyes to your face
- make you look grown-up, chic and elegant
- transform your look from boring to chic
