Add an exotic scarf to your summer wardrobe

Adding an exotic print scarf to your summer wardrobe can really jazz up a plain outfit. They are also great as part of a capsule wardrobe for your holiday or a cruise.

Cotton summer shawl

The new summer stock is now available in our shop. Here I am modelling our parrot and animal print scarf. A vibrant combination of yellow and orange parrots on a bright blue background. It is 100% cotton and measures 180cm x 105cm which makes it incredibly versatile. You can wear it in a variety of ways; as a shawl, a light summer jacket or as a sarong over a swimsuit or bikini.

or simple wound round your neck comme les francais!

The second scarf I am modelling is the Indonesian Panther scarf/stole. Again it is a large scarf and can be worn in a variety of ways. The exotic jungle print depicts fruit, flowers and prowling panthers in bright colours on a black background. There are subtle threads of gold lurex running through the print making it ideal for evening. I took mine with me on my recent trip to Somerset as part of my capsule travel wardrobe. It was great for dressing up a simple evening outfit. The same print also comes with a golden yellow background. with a rose gold lurex stripe.

    Hi Brenda
    I am working on it. I would like to do some scarf tying videos but will have to learn the technology first.
