The last time I was in Paris I realized the virtually every single woman, and plenty of men, were wearing scarves. Twisted, knotted, wrapped, doubled, hanging….and a thousand different chic ways. But you don’t have to be a French to know that a scarf can change the look of an outfit, in seconds. And now that there’s a chill in the air, scarves are a perfect way to show off your personal style, by wearing scarves that are fashionable, functional, and warm.
One company that ha been synonynous with high quality and fashionable scarves, is Fraas. They’ve been making all sorts, and for a long, long time. If you use the search feature on the Advice Sisters website, you’ll find that we’ve been suggesting Fraas scarves for every season. Now, this Fall/Holiday brings us the FRAAS Casual Grace Reversible Scarf. This scarf is soft and drape-y, but with enough substance to warm up a chilly neck or shoulders. And this style, #060607 ($40.00) is reversible (you can see both sides in the photo I personally took of the black scarf I was sent. This one features one side with dots on a solid background, and the other is a (dare I saw it- “Missoni-esque” ) pattern in a symphony of earthy brown, blue and beige stipes, with blacks dots. Wrap it and show both sides, or highlight just one. No matter how you choose to wear it, it’s sensational.
This (hand washable) scarf is of super-silky 53% viscose and 47% acrylic, so it drapes nicely. The scarf is long enough to wear as a belt, too, measuring 14 X 72 inches. It looks amazing with a leather jacket, but you can also wear it with a blouse, inside. At $40.00 SRP. you’ll get a lot of different looks from this one scarf so it’s also great for travel. And it comes in plenty of colors.
Just to give you an idea how colorful and fashion-forward even warm, wooly scarves can be, check out my photos of some other Fraas scarves that I saw LOVED when I saw them, months ago , at a Fraas Fall Preview. Who says warm and functional has to be boring or bland?!!1 The lime green, multi-colored acrylic scarf is 26″ x 67″ and if you wrap it around a sweater, you’ll get the effect of a lion’s mane, or a fabric necklace. The long scarf featuring two big, chunky tassels is 217% wool and 83% acrylic, so it’s long and warm (dimensions are 9 x72. — style 060586) The scarf with rainbow stripes from Faas as well, looks like it is genuinely knit by hand. All will add a much needed pop of color to your coats and jackets. For under $50.00 you’re getting high quality fashion scarves that will keep your warm and feeling happy, for years to come!
Scarves are also one size fits all gift. I hate to admit it, but the holidays are coming sooner than we think. These beauty scarves make welcome, easy to please, impressive gifts that look like they cost a fortune (and only you will know they didn’t)!
