Many of you that are regular readers will already know how partial I am to a silk scarf. Or two or god knows how many of these little accessories I have hanging in the wardrobe!
Accessories are so important for finishing off a look and For me, these squares of silk are the perfect accessory
You can do so much with a silk scarf, wear it many ways and it’s quite surprising how warm they can be plus how good it feels on your skin.
They will never date and can add that little extra help to your outfit and sometimes completely change the whole look
Let me introduce you to Rampley & Co Accessories
When Rampley & Co contacted me, I have to admit that I hadn’t heard of this brand before, so of course, I got straight online for a nose to see what they were all about.
The gorgeous pieces of silk stared back at me. The women’s scarves are so colourful and they are just like pieces of art. I was very impressed with the men’s collection of pocket squares and matching ties. So if you want to treat the man in your life to some super smart silk accessories for workwear or a special event like a wedding then do take a look via the link at the end of this post.
I’ve chosen to wear my “Early Life Of Achilles” silk scarf like this: tied corner to corner around my neck and tucked into my trousers, each corner at the back. I wear my scarves like this a lot and as you can see it creates a nice cowl neck at the front. I have a thick white long-sleeved T-shirt underneath.
It’s very windy! Maybe I should have put it on my head! (Big hair!)
But getting back to the scarf. I love the colours, rust, cream, blue and brown tones, perfect for any time of year. This one that I’ve chosen is from the V&A Collection but do have a browse at the other collections available. I was really impressed with the Fine Art collection but they were sold out.
In fact on looking this one that I’m wearing is sold out at the moment! At £195.00 I would not be able to afford such luxury, but these silks are obviously very popular! There are neckties available though, I like the idea of those too.
It was also interesting to read on the website, about the history of the silk scarf and how it came to be one of the most popular accessories for women. You can read it here
The scarves are all 100% silk and the edges are hand rolled. Made in the Uk and delivered worldwide free of charge.
How do you wear yours?
I’ve pulled the scarf out here and draped it over my shoulders. Wear a scarf like this over a plain dress and you can transform the look. It’s even a trend now to have them wrapped around your handbag strap. Have you seen it?
I often tie mine to one handle of my shopper bag and cover everything on show. It just keeps everything more private and looks stylish. I wore my Red silk one in this post, tied around my neck and you can see without it the whole look would have been so plain.
I’m interested to know of any other ideas you may have, how you wear yours? Do share!
I’m wearing my new blazer and trousers with the scarf. This has been one of my January purchases as are the trousers. I got the trousers from Zara just as they went into sale and I’m really pleased with them. The blazer is from Micheal Kors and there’s a post coming up about that and where I got that from.
I’m heading back inside now to rearrange myself. And warm up! I’m having a nice cup of tea at the local Hilton hotel just down the road to my home.
Thank you To Rampley & Co for this amazing gift. I know this will be worn so much.
