        HOW TO STYLE A SILK SCARF

        Before her eponymous label, British accessory designer Jane Carr was a fashion veteran consulting for Jil Sander and Balenciaga, even acting as Head of Prints at one of the most iconic fashion houses known for patterns, Versace. Wearing a silk leopard print (ombre!) scarf from her Autumn/ Winter 2016 collection inspired me to go for an androgynous look. Lately, I sensed my style has been very feminine, so different to what I preferred when I was younger and whenever something is getting a little too familiar, I like to switch it up.

        If you could’ve seen me in front of my mirror, crazy things were happening. I was twisting the scarf into a turban, tying it around the handles of my bag à la Hermes, and even experimenting with how to wear it as a top (it’s too cold right now so that idea died out as quickly as sunlight in winter). Finally, taking inspiration from Baudelaire’s idea of the 19th century flaneur, I came up with this look. I used the scarf as a cravat of sorts, tying it into a bow for a softer edge, and pairing it with a velvet blazer. To keep it on trend, I layered with my ‘pyjama’ shirt and wore calf hair leopard boots to bring out the scarf’s pattern.jane carr leopard silk scarf jane carr leopard silk scarf jane carr leopard silk scarf
