Men's Scarves: from Muffler to Stole

Thursday, 09 December 2010

MenScarves are not only for women as they are must-haves of the men's wardrobe. Its functions remain mostly the same - to keep you warm in the colder weather and to complement your look. Since men accessories are relatively monotonous, men's scarves have become an important accessory besides its fainted function of keeping warm. A classic scarf can give men added charm and present a dazzling appearance. While scarves may not be the most fashion-forward of men's accessories, they can still lend a touch of grace and elegance to a man's outfit. The difference between men's and women's scarves is hardly perceivable and is not instantly recognizable. Regardless of the fact that the boundaries between the sexes in fashion become increasingly blurred every year, you have to be very careful when picking this accessory in order to balance individuality and style.

Blurred Borderlines

The borderline between men's and women's fashion over the recent years has become increasingly blurred. Certainly, the classical men's and women's looks aren't going anywhere, but one can't deny the fact of their interaction and combination which is effectively proved by the evolution of men's accessories, such as scarves.

Only a few years ago, men's scarf options were limited to elegant silk scarves and narrow knitted pieces that are worn under the coat and can be seen only at a closer inspection. And suddenly everything changed. Men have become fashion-conscious and started to tie the scarves around their necks, like French do, or added brightly colored pieces to their wardrobe and revealed their unexpected love for fancy prints.

Gradually, men ceased to view scarves as purely functional pieces and tried to fit them into a bigger picture, as an essential part of the metrosexual look. As it turned out, men's scarf can trade its functional purpose for an elegant look.

The Power of Tradition

Most men's scarves stick to the standard long-skinny-rectangle shape. Some embellishments like fringe might be available, but the most easily distinguishable characteristics of scarves you can use to express your individuality will be with the material or the fabric pattern.

A good all-purpose active scarf material is fleece. This fabric made of polyester is warm, durable, stretchy, machine washable, and quick-drying. While many fleece scarves are just the standard rectangle, you can also find more fitted fleece gaiters. You can also find fleece scarves in just about any pattern you can imagine.

Another everyday (but perhaps less popular) scarf material is wool. Wool scarves are durable and warm, but some people may find them itchy and you'll need to pay close attention to the care label to see if the particular one you have can be machine washed.

At the upper end of the wool scarf spectrum are cashmere scarves. Cashmere is recognized as one of the softest materials out there and is often considered a luxury item. A cashmere scarf is a good choice for more business or formal occasions - they're great for paring with a suit and a nice trench coat. Cashmere will require special care too - you will not want to generally machine wash these, so if they need cleaning, send them to the dry cleaner.

Fashionable Classics

In terms of high-end fashion, scarves for men are making a huge comeback this year. It seems as though they are rapidly becoming a staple in a man's wardrobe. So if you are oblivious to fashion trends or you are even someone who likes to think of himself as a fashion forward individual, check out the following designs from the world's most prominent designers.

The first designer who has created a new line of scarves would be no other than Giorgio Armani. He has come out with the Giorgio Armani silk stole in two colors: gray and lavender. This exquisite piece of accessory is perfect for a night out in the town. Made out of pure silk and printed with the brand name «Giorgio Armani» all over, it is a must-have accessory.

The next prominent brand that has come out with a new line of scarves is DKNY. Known for its trendy yet sophisticated designs, DKNY has created the DKNY signature cotton fringed long scarf which is available in three colors: light gray, dark gray and white. Made of pure cotton, the material is stitched to perfection and the ends are fringed to give a classy effect.

Dolce & Gabbana has also come out with its own line of chic scarves. The first style is a dark blue and gray logo knit wool fringed long type. The second style is a dark blue and white all over logoed knit long type. The third is a light blue and brown logoed knit long type. And fourth style is a black and rust orange logoed knit long type.

A popular luxury Italian brand Fendi has also come out with a stunning collection of men's scarves. It is basically a logoed trim knit long type and it comes in two colors: gray and blue. Since it is perfect for formal occasions, you could match it with a dark blazer. There is no doubt that this look will reflect your good taste in fashion.

Another brand that has released a line is the high-end brand, Gucci. One style is a chain-printed doubled silk in blue and red and white designs. The second style has the signature diamond pattern that is made out of wool in black and white. It also comes in three different colors: fuchsia, olive green and indigo. The third style comes in the signature buckle stripe with wool material.

A popular Western designer who has also come up with his own line is Marc Jacobs. Using his signature logo, he created one that is knitted out of wool. It is available in the colors black and brown. His designs would go perfectly with the preppy look of a corduroy pants and a tweed jacket over a polo shirt.

Roberto Cavalli has also designed a fabulous line that encapsulates his signature style. Made out of knitted wool, his designs come in three different colors: black, blue and purple.
