I am a scarf aficionado, or my husband might say a scarf addict. I own more sizes and shapes of scarves than anyone probably really needs. I have been drawn to scarves since I was a teen. Photos of elegant women in exotic places with scarves tied on their heads as they sped along in a MG on the Cote d’Azur or used as a wrap to keep the evening chill off their shoulders, or artfully tied as a stunning accessory.
If you ask my friends, my scarves are my signature accessory. But for me they are a woman’s single most important travel accessory! Why? Because of its versatility, it can be worn to keep you warm, protect you from the sun, cover you for modesty, make a fashion statement, and dress up an outfit.
Scarves are easy to pack, throw in a bag, and are the great travel multitasker.
