I have (literally) two boxes full and the ones I'm currently wearing are in a drawer. Or three. There are lots of days when I wear two scarves - one as an accessory for my outfit, another for warmth if I'm going outside and wearing a coat. I never throw a scarf away these days. Unless, of course, the colours just don't suit me...Missus Smarty Pants has taught me well! ;)
You can almost tell the decade I wore them by their shape and material: small, cotton, squares (late 80s, worn in a jaunty French style) large, square silky Hermès type ones (90s, used them tucked inside or outside the dark business suits I wore at the EC Court of Justice), long thin knitted ones (early 00s, in bright colours worn over jumpers and coats).
And this is my current 'I'm-in-love-with-this' scarf. From one of my favourite scarf producers, the Danish company Erfurt. Paisley pattern, also very 'on-trend' here in Denmark right now. The base colour (green) is not one I wear very often these days, but the colours in the scarf suit me and it goes with everything else in my wardrobe. And it's got bells on...or at least green, white and pink pompoms! ;)
