It's that time of year when you don't really need a heavy coat but something just to keep away the chill. I have always been a fan of the shawl scarf. You can wear them around your shoulders, over jeans, a dress...just about anything and have a chic look. I've worn them as tops and even wrapped around the waist of a pair of pants...just to add color. My favorite material is challis...soft and warm without being stifling. Add a little sass with fringe and wear a piano scarf from the Victorian days! The possibility is limitless. The French know how to wear scarves and perhaps because of their eclectic fashion sense, they are a favorite. Check them out and don't say no before you try one!
