Handsome Scarves for the Men in Our Lives!

 

This autumn and winter season don’t leave the gents in your life out in the cold. These confident gentlemen prefer to look smart, dapper, and stylishly smashing, whether they’re on their way to work, meeting up with chaps, or spending the weekend with their sweetheart. (Hint: Ladies, scarves make wonderful gifts.)

 

Real men love scarves!  It’s so true. It gives them a confident well-dressed look that attracts admiring glances. As a rule, guys love styles that are more traditional in nature, but this wintery season they are leaning toward bold colours and rich designs.
                            
Gents can still be practical when choosing scarf styles, but daring in colours and design choices that will fit with their clothing styles. Men also prefer a masculine scarf, one that’s warm, heavier in weight, and will chase away the cool and brisk temps.  Made from 100% lamb’s wool these substantial scarves are sure to keep him extremely warm through the hardest weather.

 

Men love the masculine zig-zag design and the bright colours of KnotOnly’s men’s newest designer scarf for this winter.  It adds a snazzy ultra-modern look to brighten up any black or greyish clothing. Designer, Glen Prince, creates fabulous designs for the dashing man on-the-go.

 

Keep warm by sprucing up your winter wear.  The first thing men ask or are concerned about is, “How do I wear or tie my scarves so they look distinguished and keep the chill away from my face?” There are two easy ways guys can tie their scarves that give them a fashionable look and helps them stay warm:

 

  1. The Parisian Knot is the most popular and the easiest.  First, fold the scarf lengthwise and wrap it around your neck. Then take the loose ends hanging in front and insert them through the loops and pull them through.  On wintery days tuck the scarf into your coat or jacket for a warm stylish look.

 

  1. The Loose Once-Around Knot is a simple, casual knot that’s more about looking smart than keeping warm on really cold days. Frist, drape the scarf around your neck allowing one end to be longer than the other.  Then bring the long end and wrap it loosely around your neck again. Drape it loosely over your chest and wear the scarf inside or out of your blazer for a casual hanging style.

 

There’s a huge shift in the way American men are dressing. Men were trained for years if they had a particular type of job they had to dress a certain way without any individual flair or personality. Men are becoming more independent and taking ownership of their clothing style in the States. (European men embraced this philosophy years ago.) 

 

Also, for years women bought men’s clothing for them. It was just a cultural thing at the time. Men are breaking away from that rigid “corporate look” that they were trained to dress in and are beginning to add colour, design, and personality to their everyday dress.

 

Men first started showing their independence with bright and bold neckties. Now the best way to express their style is by the addition of handsome scarves to their everyday wardrobe.  Women find men fascinating and charming when they dress up their attire with striking scarves. By wearing a scarf he shows he’s a confident man, someone who is a smart dresser, and loves to look his best.

 

Designer men’s scarves make excellent gifts: Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, etc. There’s no excuse as KnotOnly makes it easy with their free gift wrapping service.  Give the man in your life handsome timeless scarves that he will wear from years to come.

Elevate Your Mood: The Shift to Scarves this Autumn

Women’s scarves this autumn and winter are more than about warmth and accessorising. They’re about lifting your mood and giving you a chic style. Let me explain, when we feel good about the way we look, it gives us confidence and self-esteem; and when our insides match the way we feel on the outside, the whole world seems to brighten up.  

 

“Women have always worn beautiful scarves, but this autumn it’s about making themselves feel confident and adoring the way they look.”…Rebecca D.

 

Everyone has an off day, especially in the colder months when less sun brings a melancholy attitude, which puts a dampening effect on the way we feel.  That’s when you need to give yourself a jolt of excitement by dressing with those simple beautiful things we lovingly call scarves. They are instant mood changers!  These gorgeous textiles quickly change our mindset when pops of colour, stylish designs, and flattering textures are introduced into our everyday wardrobe.

 

Style Tips: Consider these ways to elevate your mood with different styles and colours of scarves that amp up your clothing options:

 

Shifting your Mood takes a few simple adjustments to your attire. Change the way you feel to funky or fun. Need some sparkle in your life? Lift your attitude and your looks with a glittery posh scarf - a sure way to capture and bring out that glamour hiding inside.

 

Can’t decide whether to choose from the dark blue or the winter white Stylesnob glitzy embellished scarf? Buy them both to extend your wardrobe and lift your mood to a sparkling level on any given day.

 

Know what makes you happy. Women who have always worn scarves or those who are new to adding them to their wardrobe, understand what makes them happy. Is it the timeless styles that give a secure, confident feel, or maybe it’s the floral prints that bring a smile to your face? Or perhaps you feel the happiest when you’re wearing the luxurious feel of silk or cashmere.

 

Put a dance in your step this autumn. Select wisely and invest in designer scarves that will lift your spirits and make you feel beautifully pampered and loved.

 

A Touch of Colour plays a huge role in the way we feel mentally, as well as physically. Stylists are adamant about having a little spice in our wardrobe. It’s a great way to change those plain clothes into fabulous styles that make you feel instantly chic.

 

Choose colours that look best with your skin tone. Select scarves that can be mixed and matched with other outfits for a whole new wardrobe. For instance, if you love wearing dark navies or black, swap out tops and bottoms with more neutral shades and use your scarves to give a pop of colour - even changing the look of the entire ensemble.  

 

Women in the UK and across Europe have found the secret of wearing scarves to broaden their wardrobe. It’s catching on in the U.S., on the other side of the pond.  

Women are smart and savvy and that’s why they shop for their scarves at KnotOnly.  Exquisite styles, fabulous fabrics, types, and brands everyone favours.

 

Embrace wearing scarves every day, they’re the most luxurious way to lift your mood and look absolutely stunning.  Contact our stylists if you need help finding your next perfect scarf.

Building a Woman’s Scarf Wardrobe: Taking You From Season to Season

Who knew? Did you ever think about building a scarf collection that will stretch your wardrobe and clothing options?  Not many women do…they usually buy beautiful scarves they fancy here and there.   Building a collection of posh scarves is fun and fashionable that will effortlessly take you from season to season.  It all starts with a few basic “must-have” ladies scarves that you truly enjoy. Take what you love and build from there in sophisticated style.

 

Essential Women’s Scarves

 

Every woman should have a few basic scarves in her wardrobe collection. If you’re just starting out building your wardrobe, look for versatility, neutrals, and dark shade scarves that you can wear with an array of different outfits.  Make sure you start with these basics:

 

  1. A dark and a light solid pashmina (luxurious all-season scarf)
  2. A dark and a light solid wool scarf (cold season)
  3. A light or neutral cotton scarf (fall and spring seasons)
  4. A gauzy or silk summer scarf (warmer seasons)

 

Build on Your Existing Scarf Collection

 

This is where the fun begins. Explore and find your personal taste in the type of scarves, as well as the design, fabric, and colour that gives them their funky, vintage, or chic look.  Gradually add prints and different textures that will easily go from season to season with pops of colour that brighten up the grey and cold days of winter.

 

Add a couple of scarves that are a little bolder or shyer than you normally would wear. The added personality will give your clothing a wider breadth of styles. Select an exotic animal print or go softly with muted butterflies, ladybugs, and bees. Be pleasantly surprised at all the compliments you’ll receive when you step outside your comfort zone.

  

Enhance With Wraps, Shawls, and Pashminas

 

 No woman’s scarf collection is complete without KnotOnly’s designer wraps, shawls and pashminas. They are the essence of versatility allowing you to go seamlessly from casual to formal attire and from cold to warm seasons without a hiccup. 

 

Versatility and elegance describes these particular scarves to a tee. There are so many ways you can wear them from draped around your shoulders to wearing them wrapped around your waist to give your figure a smaller cinched waistline.

 

Have an area of your figure that needs a little help? These ladies’ scarves are perfect to hide those flaws and emphasize your assets.

  

Style Tips

 

Wraps, Shawls, Pashminas can hide a full-figure bustline if it’s worn tossed over one shoulder. The soft drapes will cascade over the bust giving it less definition.  The rule of thumb stylists live by is: The more attention that is put on the neckline, that’s where the eyes will go, distracting from other areas of the body.

 

Always have these beautiful types of scarves handy for a dramatic change in your wardrobe. Because these designer scarves comes in all shapes, sizes, and styles they can easily be tied in a bolero, a snug vest, and a jacket style. The wearing possibilities are endless.
