One to wear with suede:


I'd wear with... my suede, burnt-red Alexander Wang jacket (remember the neckline when choosing a jacket as you want the scarf to be seen), my denim culottes and slip on Paul Andrew flats. Wrap the scarf right around until you are able to have a neat side tie.

The one to wear navy:

I'd wear with...  my navy, cashmere round neck sweater and indigo skinny jeans from Hudson or Koral, grey socks (Item M6 do amazing socks you want to show off) and my Tods burgundy loafers. This scarf is the perfect light weight layering for summer, too - just swap the cashmere for a navy t-shirt (Splendid, T by Wang and Sunspel are at the top of my list).


The one to wear with a jumpsuit:

I'd wear with...  my denim APC jumpsuit and my grey Acne brogues now, and in summer a good slider or sandal (nothing bright, let the scarf the job). Look to Cos, Tava, Gucci (with the amazing old school colouring) and New Bark for great sandals this season.
