In The Guardian's Weekend magazine this morning there is a great article about how to wear an Hermès scarf. Which doesn't fully resolve the issue: in my opinion the silk scarf is a tricky thing to get right, and can leave you erring dangerously on the side of Middle England housewife if you get it wrong.
Take Giovanna here: she edges up the scarf with those snakeskin boots (to die for) and that leopard clutch. And the scarf, knotted irreverently in the way you seem to need to be either French or Italian to achieve.
And how pretty does this girl look?
So, how do you wear yours?
