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.

The Creation Process of the Designer Scarve

Silk Scarves Forever - Well Almost!

Silk scarves will last decades - my favorite scarf is from my Grandmother which she received as a gift before I was even born!

Hermes was a God - A Greek God

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!

Personal Brand

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.

How to Use a Scarf Ring or Clip

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!

I love Hermès' scarfs as well! There is nothing like a wonderful foulard attached to an elegant handbag... My absolutely favorite is one that I bought many years ago at Harrods in London. It was a limited edition that was scented with Calèche perfume and you can still smell the fragrance!

Hermes is amazing. I love their silk scarves. One of my favorite accents for my scarf is my buffalo scarf ring I bought from www.scarf-rings.com. I just could afford to by one of hermes's scarf rings, so I bought one of these.

BbCreative,

I too love silk - nothing more luxurious. I will know that I have "make it" when I can own a Hermes silk scarf. For now, it is a true luxury just to wear Grandmother's old silk scarves. Thank you for your words of praise - very much appreciated.

I can't believe I read the whole thing! Ok, well I scanned a couple of paragraphs. How can one sex be so interested and then the rest of us be so completely 'hit me on the head with a 2 by 4 and put me out of my misery?'

LOL, ok I tried, cut could not get interested in your scarves.

Thank you for sharing your hub with us. Scarves can add just the right touch to hair, hand bags, as a belt, around the neck or even twisted to form a fabric bangle bracelet.

Never thought of a bangle bracelet. And I love bangles too! Great idea!

@Granny's House,

Yes, I pulled her photo - don't like me - check our a real me for the moment. I must work on this profile photo thing. Argh! Thank you stopping by!

@Yenafeon,

I agree - LOVE is the right word for it! Thank you very much!

@msorensson,

I had forgotten too! One of my dreams to have one or better yet while I am dreaming - a collection of Hermes scarves! One in each color grouping!

@Morgan F,

Isn't it appropriate that these exquisite scarves are named after the Greek's greatest God?! A great messenger and underwater guide - and I love the water! Very appropriate and he is a good looking Greek God too!

Silk scarves are very classy, they give a woman totally different look. I love the pictures in this article!

pastella13,

The types and materials are just about endless - something for every wardrobe and something for every personality and style.

Angela_1973,

The scarf is the single most versatile of all accessories and it is "season-less" - it lasts and lasts - never going out of style. I wear my Grandmother's silk scarf to this day - it is has frayed but still looks greats. What a legacy she left me the woman who was appalled with the number of outfits when we could only wear one at a time! Yet, she took great pride in her silk scarf. Always frugal in nature but a woman who knew the value of great style - that is the true beauty of a scarf.

AnnieMary,

I am truly jealous - wow! Love Hermes scarves! Nothing better for the wardrobe. Great investment - lasting - and you are right - 50 would be better than 5!

Beautiful Hub and great ideas! Hermes has always been a favorite of mine. Whether vintage or new, their scarves are exquisite. I liked the fact you also included other beautiful silk scarves for those of us not quite ready to make the investment in an Hermes!


GmaGoldie profile image

GmaGoldie 5 years ago from Madison, Wisconsin Author

lindacee,

You are right - the investment for Hermes is not for everyone. I like to call this extreme purchase a legacy piece of clothing - something to be handed down to children and even grand children.

Great article. They are beautiful. Expensive? Yes but, because they do get used in a variety of ways, you would get your money's worth.

Zabbella,

Hermes scarves are like Italian shoes, they are an investment, not a trend, an investment to carry us through decades of fashion. Yes, you are absolutely correct.

It never fails but men always compliment me on a scarf - never hardly on jewelry.

Scarves are one of the best timeless fashion accessories we women have. Men have ties, we have flowing scarves-once again we women win for style and beauty!
