It’s winter, clothing accessories and extras are in full swing with wooly hats and gloves being everywhere, but the scarf is the true king of the cold season.
We all owned one at some point, but also have likely all misplaced one as well. The scarf has been a member of the back of the wardrobe gang for a long time, but not many men know how to don one correctly. Fret not, as Mainline has the perfect guide in helping you learn to wear one with formal clothing such as blazers.
If your first difficulty comes with actually putting on the scarf itself, check out our other article on how to wear a scarf in a number of different fashions.
A well-worn scarf can take your outfit to the next level, but finding a suitable one for men can sometimes be difficult. Luckily, you’re on a clothing websites blog, so this is the place to find hundreds!
This Gant Lambswool Purple Checked Scarf is the perfect scarf to go with most dark coloured blazers. The darker edges of the scarf contrast with the brighter centre, which isn’t even close to being so bright that it’ll overshadow the rest of your outfit.
The perfect scarf is one that almost goes unseen, just earning the occasional comment from onlookers. Gant exceeds in this with their wide range of similar tartan designs, be sure to check out their full range on Mainline here.
Barbour are another brand who have a range of premium scarfs, also with a tartan design. The major difference between the two, however, would be the tassels on the end. Not everyone’s cup of tea, and can be very difficult to make it look professional partnered up with a blazer, but if you think you can make it work, take a look here!
The way you wear your scarf can make all the difference, so make sure to again read this article to learn the many different ways to wear a scarf. When wearing a blazer, it’s important to make sure you stay looking classy and sophisticated, which is why I would tend to recommend steering away from frills and tassels on the scarf.
Partnering your scarf with a hat or gloves can take you from someone looks to make a fashion statement to a guy trying to avoid the cold, so be careful not to pair up too many accessories at any one time.
