Great Gifts Always Fashionable - a Scarf - I Love Hermes Scarves | Buy Online
I love Hermes scarves. I love, love, love scarves! From chiffon to heavy silk to satin to linen/cotton to even wool and cashmere. Scarves simply offer the very best in fashion for every season. Silk scarves for women are a thoughtful and useful gift which creates lasting memories beyond the fresh flowers and chocolate.
Fabrics Galore - Yet Silk Reigns
Hermes scarves are made in amazing fabrics from cashmere to silk.
Silk is the fabric of choice because it is very durable but also a great value since we can wear silk even in the heat of summer. Silk has both a cooling and a warming effect.
Scarves are an essential IF you are over 40 and female and fighting the wrinkles around the neck. A beautiful scarf adds color and life to your face and to your very soul. No matter your age, a scarf filled with color and artistry is uplifting to you soul.
There is another delightful fabric which is also silk, a very fine sheer silk called "mousseline" which I imagine would in American terms be best described as a chiffon. Silk of any sort is a great long term investment for your wardrobe.
Of all the great fabrics, a heavy, high quality silk scarf such as Hermes will last you a lifetime. A great fashion investment that will serve you for decades as my Grandmother's silk scarves have served me.

A Greek God. I love history so to me this is fascinating. If you enjoy a tidbit of history - you must read this article: The Greek God Hermes. And the photos are remarkable in this article! Enjoy!
Best Fashionable Anti-Depression Prescription
My best friend was giving advise to another female and she stated to quit wearing black and tan and add color.
A scarf with bold beautiful design and color, with a luxurious fabric next to your skin - especially your neck is one of the very best anti-depression medicines outside of pure exhilarating exercise (the exercise professional tiny input here) and for some ladies shoes!
Ladies with scarves are memorable - the scarf will forever define your personal brand. If you care about your fashion statement and want to take it up a notch for not allot of funds - buy a couple of quality scarves and wear them on a regular basis.
In the spring, I have a special blue scarf that literally marks the end of the winter for me. The top I wear is very basic but the scarf is stunning!
Men Will Compliment Females on their Scarf!
Men you must explain this one to me. I can wear jewelry, wear new shoes, even have a new hair color or style but you never mention it - almost always when I wear a scarf I get a compliment - over and over again! I love it! Don't understand it - but love it! Great fringe benefit of wearing a scarf.
Friends Afflicted with Cancer - Sick Friend Thoughtful Gift
A sister of a close friend is undergoing cancer treatments which left her without her beautiful blond hair. She confided that she refuses the wigs but she has begun to enjoy the scarves.
Hermes Pronunciation: If you want the correct pronunciation of Hermes, check out the video - An Expensive Little Habit - French Scarves.
Proper Grammar Side Note: A single piece of this wonderful fashion accessory is "scarf", multiple items should be referred to as "scarves".
Hundreds of Options for Scarves - My Three Favorites
There are hundreds of options for wearing scarves from belts to head wear to tied in front, knotted and even knotted with multiple knots. Here are my top three favorite scarf options.
Scarf Option #1 - Scarf Clips or Scarf Rings or Scarf Slide
Technically these three items are all different - although similar in purpose - just a different method.
Scarf clips and rings are fun and functional too! I actually own just one - classic and multifunctional. It is gold with small crystals and goes with everything and anything.
I love my scarf ring because knotting a scarf is not my favorite chore. The scarf ring or clip
Scarf Clip: A scarf clip opens and will often have a clasp similar to a clip earring.
Scarf Ring: A ring is almost identical (albeit smaller in size) to a napkin ring (this is the one piece that I own and use always with my blue spring scarf).
Scarf Slide: And a slide is often flat with a bar across the center to add stability to holding a soft scarf.
Scarf Option #2 - Wear On Your Hand Bag
I love this option - it keeps your scarf safe and secure and right at hand and add great color to any outfit.
Very fashionable statement especially with the right size bag.
Great way to carry your scarf with you and also a dash of color too!
Scarf Option #3 - Tie on the Tab of Your Trench Coat
To me there is nothing more classic than a basic tan trench coat and then add tie on the shoulder a colorful silk scarf. This is how I often wear my Grandmother's scarf. The tan and the navy look wonderful but the scarf takes away that manly look of the trench coat. The masculine trench with the soft silk scarf is a great composition.
Just as glovescan be worn in the summer and for evening galas, scarves are not just for winter anymore!
A silk scarf on a spring coat is a clear fashion winner!
