Calling all HoC Winters, colours experts and scarf lovers!
I'm tempted Faddy cos I love it but it's going to be right next to my face, and I'm definitely not a summer-leaning winter...but maybe I'm taking my colours too seriously... Might get it if the price doesn't go up too much, and will def check out TK Maxx!
Thanks Hopefully for the definitive answer
If anyone's seen a scarf with ice colours in it please let me know!
I'm only an interested dabbler in all of this colours business - I've never gotten it professionally done. But I will tell you what a friend of mine was wearing yesterday. She is very beautiful and I think probably a Clear Winter? (Same colouring as Megan Fox). Anyway, I just googled 'clear winter colour palette' and everything she was wearing was on it:
An icy pink marl sleeveless tank top - very neutral-y coloured Emerald turquoise skinny jeans Flipflops with fuschia toenails
My rambling point is: not sure what kind of Winter you are, but clearer/brighter shades of the colour combo in your scarf (i.e emerald turquoise + fuschia vs mint +violet) look AMAZING together on a Winter.
I think I'm a jewel winter... fuchsia, emerald, scarlet etc work on me - I'm more Snow White-ish colouring than tanned and Megan Fox-y. Your friend's outfit sounds great, and that's a v useful palette, thank you!
Yes, it was a great outfit, the colours absolutely popped with her deep tan
I am almost certain I'm a Winter (definitely cool colouring and gravitate towards jewel shades like you) but I would lovvvvvvvvvve to get this confirmed. However, I'm not in the U.K. and I couldn't be sure it would be done right. So I just continue to dabble
Anyway I often get given scarves as gifts, and if they're too 'warm' or muddy I try to make them work with a brighter coloured top.
Love the one you linked MadChoc. I hadn't thought about the green in the one I linked not being emerald - to my eye all bright darkish greens are emerald - I think I need to do some more colour studying!
I adore them both Perseis, more than the star ones in fact! This is dangerous, don't get me perusing Becksondergaards website! I really don't want to pay over £40 for a scarf. And yet I want it to be stunning and exactly the right colours
Perseis I'm so sorry I'm an idiot, I was looking at those scarves on my phone where the picture is tiny and didn't realise the 'birds on the wire' one isn't Becksondergaard! Am thinking about getting it, but need to work out if the colour is right first... not sure if it's more of an autumn greeny blue...
