So what are the trends for the mumsnet scarf this year?

Any contenders so far. It's practically winter in Scotland it was never summer to be honest so I am mouring my lack of summer by looking at autumn winter clothes.

Has anyone bought any nice scarves recently?

I just wear scarves that go with whatever I am wearing, but I am not exactly a follower of fashion.

Scarves are OVER.

Cupcaketin Tue 11-Aug-15 19:38:23

coasting what ??? I love scarves and having a warm neck, how can they be over grin

I want to buy a Hermes or similar silk square this autumn, 90x90, but I don't really know where to look except Liberty. Anyone? I'm near London.

Saying scarves are over is a bit like saying gloves are over! Oh nobody is going to wear a coat this winter, they are so over!

Bunbaker Tue 11-Aug-15 19:45:56

Exactly Dexter

Oh fgs - it didn't take long for somebody to run out the old, 'They're over' line. How bloody ridiculous. If it is cold, you wear a scarf. I have a skinny and bony collar bone, anaemia and low blood pressure - I'm often cold, and guess what? If I'm cold, I put a scarf on.

I neither know nor care what the trends are, but I have a gorgeous grey cashmere one that I bought in the sales earlier this year. I want a bright pink one and also a red one. I already have lots of thinner ones for Autumn.

Scarves are over?!! Isn't that like saying boots are over? Or tights are over? How daft

Turquoiseblue Tue 11-Aug-15 19:53:39

Noooooo they can't be over - I luffs a nice scarf ! Have my eye on a few this season (and nothing else fits wink)

I wonder if coasting means thin fabric fashion scarves that are worn indoors rather than woolly outdoor scarves?

Scarves will never be over in my house. I love a large fine wool/silk pashmina type scarf. I'm looking for a pale gold one this year.

Yes - the Mumsnet scarf is one of those long, insubstantial accessories that some people are able to tie in an attractively casual fashion. Some others among us, no matter how we YouTube, always end up with pointless lengths of floaty fabric sticking to our sleeves, trailing behind us from the neck, half-strangling us and getting in other people's drinks.

Tsk. Newcomers to MN. Do you know nothing?!

TeresaGiudicesForehead Tue 11-Aug-15 20:24:40

Lol Garlick!

I really don't care if scarves are over. I'm freezing almost all the time so I NEED my scarf. I don't care if I'm a fashion leper. It's either that or a wolf fleece so gimme the scarves.

PetiteBateau Tue 11-Aug-15 20:28:26

Wolf fleece grin

I like scarves

Coastingit Tue 11-Aug-15 20:30:16

Yes the insubstantial MN scarf type scarf is what I meant is OVER, thank you understanders!

I like the sound of a grey cashmere scarf, I could get on board with one of those. I spent a large period of last winter bemused at people's love for the Acne Canada scarf and now I would absolutely love one.

But I am definitely planning to chuck out my 30 or so patterned long thin wide ones.

Cupcaketin Tue 11-Aug-15 20:30:42

Teresa you will never be so cold that you need a wolf fleece, it would be better to freeze, seriously. A nice scarf however keeps your neck just at the right temperature. All we need is to watch GBBO to see how Mary Berry is wearing hers, my mum is always phoning me to work out how to do a scarf like Mary and I have to work it out for her grin

Cupcaketin Tue 11-Aug-15 20:31:41

I am definitely not chucking out my long thin wide ones, I may just Kondo the ones that don't bring me joy......

TeresaGiudicesForehead Tue 11-Aug-15 20:39:37

There's a few people round these parts that wear the odd animal fleece. I live in the fashion mecca that is the west coast of scotland.

I'm kind of trying to kondo my wardrobe and make it capsule so i'm looking for the one that goes with everything. A grey cashmere night be the answer.

Love the colours in this but it is acrylic.

Hermes scarves are sold in the Hermes shop in Bond Street. Or on line via their official shop. More choice is store. Even more choice in their Paris store!

Scarves in general: any decent pashmina type is still wearable. Tweed is very in this winter plus sheepskin and pussy bow blouses. Wear the whole lot and you will be fashionable and warm.

Millymollymama Wed 12-Aug-15 14:06:03

Teresa - Scotland - tweed!! Problem solved!

FrancesHB Wed 12-Aug-15 16:32:38

Thanks MillyMolly. Obvious really. smile

icklekid Wed 12-Aug-15 16:36:15

I've just got this in grey powder-uk.com/product/milly-7/ loads of pretty ones!

Carpaccio Wed 12-Aug-15 17:30:37

Scarves will never be over!

Hermes is also sold in Selfridges and Harrods.

I will be wearing my old Hermes scarves, Mulberry scarves (from the outlets) and my latest scarf which is grey with a metal chain going all around the edge. I don't remember the brand, but it wasn't very expensive at all.
