Silk Scarf Beauty

by Mary DeArment March 15, 2015

The beauty of a fine quality scarf is determined by design and color. These are highly personal choices relating to preference, personality, coloring, occasion, and wardrobe. Fashion editors can tell the consumer what colors are “in” but if you don't like the color or it isn't flattering to your complexion or wardrobe, why bother? In the end, the scarf connoisseur chooses her scarf because she loves both the design and the color. A fantastic quality scarf whose design you don't like will sit in the drawer, unworn. If you love the design but not the color (or vice versa) it won't work for you.

Scale is an important consideration when choosing a scarf. A large scale tends to take over an outfit – so the scarf is featured at the expense of the other outfit components. A scarf with a very small scale pattern adds a subtle accent to an outfit and ties together closely related colors; a tiny pattern looks like a texture and doesn't invite close inspection.

A midscale pattern is often the best choice. A midscale pattern is small enough to complement the face and large enough to be comprehensible to those interacting personally with the scarf wearer. The observant conversationalist (or silent admirer) could identify the scarf as floral or nautical or word based without violating socially conventional proxemics. The wearer of midscale patterned scarves invites interaction but not intimacy and establishes a presence without dominating the scene. After all, we don't want others to put on their reading glasses to see the pattern on the scarf!

The colors of an excellent quality scarf will be vibrant and consistent. If all colors are in the same family they should enhance one another, not compete. If there is an accent color it should be balanced and integrated.
