The Burberry scarf is such a beautiful, quality, luxury investment for your wardrobe. So, of course, you want to know how to style it in many different ways so that you can get the most out of your beautiful purchase. I don’t actually own the classic colorway of the Burberry scarf; instead, I went for this pink colorway called Vintage Check Ice Pink. I decided to go for this particular colorway because I already have a lot of pink in my wardrobe. That’s the fun thing about these scarves – they come in lots of different colorways, so you can really choose one that suits your personality.
Just before we get into styling the scarf, I want to talk about the colors and tones of your outfits. When styling a Burberry scarf, it is easiest and best to stick to neutrals for the rest of your outfit. The scarf really is the standout piece, so if you get a little bit too busy with your outfit, it can take away from your scarf. You don’t want something like stripes or dots going on because it is going to clash. I find neutral tones to go great with the scarf – I’m talking black, navy, white, cream, tan, and camel. Camel is the classic Burberry color that you will find in most of their scarves anyway. From there, you can also pick a color out of the particular scarf that you have and tie it in with your outfit if you want a pop of color. For example, the classic Burberry scarf has red in it, so you could wear a red sweater, have a red handbag, or even wear just a little touch of red lipstick. That’s a clever way to add a little pop of color so that your outfit looks coordinated and not all neutral.
The first way to style your Burberry scarf is with a trench coat, and Burberry invented the trench coat, so of course, it’s going to go well with the Burberry scarf. They made it for the British army back in World War One. I’m wearing a Jack Wills one which I find to have the flare of Burberry but obviously not with the price tag. If I’m going to wear my trench coat open, I do like to have the scarf just hanging down because the length of the scarf with the coat falls quite nicely.
Twist it, turn it, tuck it. New ways to dress up the new Burberry scarves—and pair them with the latest It bag.
Singapore Tatler contributing fashion director Desmond Lim suggested exposing the frays of the scarf to give texture and form.
It was a hot day out, but temperatures were dropping in the Burberry store at Ion Orchard. Cocktail shakers were in the air. Waiters made their rounds with signature drinks and canapes as guests of Singapore Tatler chatted about the special autumn/winter pieces Burberry had flown in from London just for the exclusive event.
On everyone’s lips? The Burberry Scarf Bar. It opened late last year, offering an impressive range of lightweight cashmere scarves in over 30 colours and tens of shades of thread for personalised monogramming. Made in two distinguished Scottish mills, in Elgin and Ayr, each scarf is craftily woven on a traditional loom, then washed in fresh waters before finishing touches are applied.
Scarves as precious as the ones produced by Burberry deserve more than a casual throw over a cold shoulder. The presentation by Tatler contributing fashion director Desmond Lim proved that they shouldn’t only see daylight in cooler climates.
To better show them off, wear the scarves on the head, he advised, as he demonstrated three ways to tie them over brushed hair. The first look has a halo effect and is ideal for those looking for a neat yet textured finish. “Flat hair is bad hair!” he warned.
The second, the scarf equivalent of a messy bun, was a hit as it didn’t require a skilful hand to recreate. “Don’t work up a sweat making the twists flawless. It’s supposed to be relaxed and imperfect,” said Desmond. The last look was perhaps the easiest to copy—lay the scarf over the forehead before tying a bow at the back.
What’s in a name
The It accessory to complement the scarf is the Patchwork bag, fresh off the Burberry Womenswear February 2016 runway show. The bag du jour boasts an exclusive mix of colours, patterns and embellishments in leather, checks and exotic skins, all finished with a polished buckle inspired by the brand’s iconic trench coat. No two bags are the same, as each design is truly one of a kind.
The individuality of the bags are armoured by their own unique names—every Patchwork, designed in London and made in Italy, is individually named after a British street, town or village. An accessory imagined with an eclectic fashionista in mind, it can be worn as a shoulder bag via its chunky strap, across the body with a detachable longer strap, or held as a clutch in the evenings.
Burberry is one of the most iconic names in fashion, with the classic Burberry pattern familiar to even those with zero interest in the latest styles. One of the most famous pieces Burberry makes is the Burberry Scarf, a garment that is made from cashmere and comes in various colors. However, combining this respected piece with your clothes is not always easy.
That’s where we can help, giving you the best combinations to wear with your Burberry Scarf. Whether you want sharp and casual or slick and formal, we’ve got you covered. Since the Burberry Scarf made its debut in 2008, we have been matching it with styles to find the best fashion choices for this popular accessory.
Something of a bold choice to start, especially if you don’t get the tones exactly right. Match your camel Burberry Scarf with dark blue jeans, a long blue coat, and even throw in a blue bag. Too blue? Of course, you’re going to have to break it up with camel colored boots and a mustard sweater or button down shirt.
Check on Burberry
Teaming check patterns directly with a camel/mustard Burberry Scarf could be a match made in hell, but if you choose right, it can become heavenly. We recommend a large square dark with white patch check coat with your scarf blooming in the middle. Add some black skinny jeans, black boots, and a dark bag. Complete the chic look with a dark brown hat.
Denim on Denim
You’re going to have to be careful with any denim on denim look because it can either look clean and contemporary or out of sync. We like a grey Burberry Scarf with light blue three-quarter jeans, if you get them with roll up legs, even better! Add a denim jacket that’s slightly off color to the jeans and a pair of dark brown ankle boots to finish a look that works in many casual situations.
Playful and Relaxed
While you associate a Burberry Scarf with covered winter fashion, it is an accessory that works wonderfully during spring and the fall too. We love the look of combining a tan Burberry Scarf with a bright red thigh-length girly dress, black tights, and black high heel shoes. A wonderful combination of style that give off a breezy finish.
Rocking the Spring
Another excellent spring idea will bring out the rocker in you. Grab your jean short shorts, even cut away an old pair of your own jeans. Add a hip-length black top or t-shirt and put a black leather jacket on top. Finish the rock chick look with knee-high zip boots. You can put the Burberry Scarf around your neck, or even wear it as a bandana.
Believe us, we have only started scratching the surface of the fashion looks you can create with a Burberry Scarf. Many people make the mistake of thinking the unique patterns of Burberry make it hard to mix and match with clothes. That’s simply not true and in fact, a Burberry Scarf is one of the most versatile accessories you can have in your wardrobe.
This month on my Back To Basics series post, I wanted to do something a little different and share a review of one of my favorite winter basics, the Burberry cashmere scarf. When I do reviews of popular luxury items, y’all seem to love them. I wanted to share more about this scarf and how I style it. I had wanted a traditional Burberry cashmere scarf in camel for as long as I can remember and my amazing in-laws gifted me this one last Christmas. I find myself reaching for this scarf a lot in my winter wardrobe and will for years to come.
Which Size and Pattern Do I have: Burberry has many options when it comes to scarves. I have the Half Mega Check Cashmere Scarf in camel. I picked this one because it’s long enough to wear multiple ways. I feel like the length also helps it be warmer than some of the other sizes. This one also doesn’t have a lot of red on it like many of the others, so it can be worn with more colors too. I suggest going to either the Burberry store, or to a retailer like Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus with a large selection and trying on several styles to determine your favorite.
How Do I Style It: Since this scarf is one of the longer Burberry scarves, I can wear it many ways. I find that the scarf looks best with other neutrals like black and tan. I also love it with red. This one doesn’t have a ton of red in the print like many of the other camel Burberry scarfs, so it can go with more. I mostly wear it around my neck and not wrapped, or wrapped behind my neck with the two ends in the front, or wrapped behind my neck with the two ends in the front then I tie it again. I’ve included the several photo with ways I’ve styled it.
- Classic/Investment piece: While this is a pricey item, it is a classic! It is something that will never go out of style and is something I can see myself pull out for decades. I always feel very put together when I wear this.
- Warm: The cashmere is a warm, but breathable fabric.
- Durable: I’ve had mine a little over a year with a good amount of usage and it still looks perfect. I am really careful with it though.
- Can be styled many ways
- Only works for winter
- Doesn’t match everything: since it has a pattern it doesn’t match everything, but I still feel like it goes with a lot.
- Cashmere is delicate: proper storage is a must. I always keep mine covered to make sure moths don’t get to it.
Is it worth the price? Although this scarf has a steep price tag, I do think it’s worth it because it will last for many years. I have a pink cashmere Burberry scarf that is probably close to 10 years old and it’s still in great share. As long as you’re careful and take care of the scarves, they last a long time. This is one of those winter pieces that I always reach for and helps me feel put together. I especially loved it for our Europe trip last year. It made me feel like I fit into the culture/stay warm.
Burberry scarves are one among the imposing brands, known all over the world for the best quality materials and elegant styles. You can rock any kind of get-together with a simple and ravishing Burberry scarf around your neck. If you purchase your scarf from Burberry’s registered and reputable stores, then you can be confident that the scarf you carrying is an authentic one. However, incase if you buy it from somewhere else, then you will definitely need to know how to spot a fake Burberry scarf.

Always buy Burberry scarf from a reputable seller
Always keep it in your mind that Burberry never places its scarves anywhere other than their registered stores or online website. Therefore, do not expect to find an original Burberry scarf in every second third stores or shopping centers. You can simple visit Burberry’s official website and click the “Store Locator” link in the menu bar in order to find out the exact locations of their stores. To spot other fake Burberry products i have provided some links below, read the rest and have fun.
Look at the price tag of the scarf
Closely inspect the price tag of the scarf you want to buy. Burberry is an expensive brand for sure. Therefore, it sells its scarves in the upper hundreds of dollars, ranging from $175 up to more than $500. If the scarf under examination contains a price tag in lower hundreds, then it most probably a fake Burberry scarf.
Study the label of the scarf
Thoroughly study the label of the scarf. In case, if it says, “Made in China,” or somewhere else other than “Made in London,” it is a knock-off for sure.
Inspect the Patterns on the Scarf
Now, thoroughly inspect the patterns of the scarf. The patterns should perfectly straight from side of the scarf to the other. In addition to that, the original Burberry scarves are always designed in either Nova or Classic checks. In case, if you find a scarf with imperfections like off-color diagonal patterns, it cannot be an authentic Burberry scarf at any cost.
Feel the fabric of the scarf
Authentic Burberry scarves are made entirely from fine quality and expensive materials like cashmere, wool, and silk. Anyways, if the scarf under observation is made from cotton or other cheap fabric, it is most certainly not an original Burberry scarf.
Read the logo of the scarf
Make sure that the logo on the scarf is spelled in uppercase letters only, like BURBERRY. However, most of the imitations of Burberry scarves are spelled “BURBURY,” “BURBERY,” or “Burberry’s.” In addition to the spelling on the logo, the leg of the “RS” of an authentic Burberry scarf should resemble a kickstand of a bicycle. On the other hand, the “RS” resembling a straight leg is a clear sign of a fake Burberry scarf.
Before I knew anything about fashion or style, I was able to recognize and identify one of the most iconic color schemes and patterns: the classic Burberry check. The people I’d see wearing it always looked so elegant and confident.
Of the garments adorned by that check, none are perhaps more famous than the Burberry scarf. The classic version is 100% cashmere, woven on traditional looms in the Scottish towns of Elgin and Ayr and finished by hand using methods that have been passed down for generations.
If you have an icon, you don’t mess with it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t build on its quality and success. Burberry is doing just that with the launch of the Burberry Scarf Bar. For the first time, we’ll all have access to an expanded range of classic and lightweight cashmere designs, prints and monogramming options, as well as 30 colors.
If one thing is certain, it’s that a Burberry scarf is timeless. Definitely check out the Burberry Scarf Bar online or in store and should you consider investing in one for yourself, here are five different looks for a little inspiration.
1. All Business
Classics never go out of style. Grey suit. Check. Crisp white shirt and simple tie. Check. Burberry trench and signature plaid scarf. Check.
2. Indian Summer
There’s always a day in late October that’s chilly in the morning, but overly warm in the afternoon. On a day like this, ditch the coat and throw on a light cashmere scarf to keep warm.
3. Edgy Workwear
Go high-low and mix casual pieces with tailored elements for an edgy work look. A denim jacket in place of your suit jacket for those days you’re feeling rebellious.
4. Coffee Date
Nothing looks better (or sexier) than well-fitting basics. Slim dark denim, a tailored blue button up, and classic cap toes. Then, just accessorize simply and smartly. Simple is always stylish.
5. Deep Fall Sharp Casual
When it starts to cool down, one of the easiest knots to tie when you’re rushing out of the house is the Parisian knot.

How French Women Stay Slim
A scarf (une écharpe in French) is the ultimate classic staple of the French wardrobe. Indeed, French women are famous for always wearing a scarf in all seasons. In France, scarves are not seen as a winter-only item, but they are worn year-round, and even during the summer season. Only the hottest weather will stop French women from rocking a scarf.
A scarf is a great way to add some French chic to any of your outfits. Indeed, it can be both an accessory as well as a statement piece. It can dress up anything casual, looks good with denim, and looks elegant with elegant clothes. So, if you don’t know how to tie a scarf properly and how to not feel overly accessorized, here is your guide to wearing a scarf the French way. In this article, you’ll learn the three different kinds of French scarves and the chicest ways to wear them in all seasons.
How To Tie A Scarf Like A French Woman
Before I cover how to nouer (tie) your scarf like a true French woman, make sure you have the right kind of scarf in your closet. Indeed, in France, there are three different kinds of scarves French women wear in different seasons: une écharpe, un foulard, une étole. And the difference between those scarves lies in the material, texture, thickness, size, and style.
1. Une écharpe
First, une écharpe is usually made of heavy fabrics like wool, cashmere, or cotton. It’s one of the staples of the French winter capsule wardrobe. It will necessarily be a long narrow rectangle and its width can range from 20cm to 60cm. The French usually choose the color of their scarves according to the color of their coats. And they always have as many scarves as different coats. And I can guarantee you that wearing a textured écharpe the same color as your coat will add subtle visual interest to any outfit you sport. The écharpe is here to keep you warm above all and can be worn in two ways.
How To Tie une écharpe
The first way to wear your scarf in an elegant way is very simple. Just hang your scarf around your neck with each end of the scarf flipped over the opposite shoulder. In some instances, only one end is flipped over the shoulder. The scarf should always look like you’ve carelessly thrown it over your shoulder as your run out of the house. Effortlessness is so very chic!
Another way is to fold your scarf in half, holding the loop end in your left hand and the two loose ends in your right. Then, just slip your scarf over your head and thread the ends through the loop.
2. Un foulard
Un foulard is a lightweight scarf typically made of silk, chiffon, viscose, or similar materials and can be square or rectangle (usually 55×55). Since it is lighter and smaller than the écharpe and l’étole, it will be worn in mid-season when the temperatures start to rise. Le foulard is mainly worn for style and fashion as it does not protect much from the cold. In France, a brightly colored patterned scarf is exclusively for silk foulard like the carrés de soie you can shop at Hermès.
It’s an effortless way to elevate any outfit. And knotting a patterned foulard around your neck becomes a statement in and of itself. I think it’s the perfect accessory to wear with a beige trench coat in spring or with a wool blazer in fall. When it rains, you can easily tuck your silk scarf inside your jacket.
The 8 Most Prestigious French Luxury Jewelry Brands
How To Tie un foulard (a silk scarf)
Here are the six chicest ways to tie a silk scarf like a French woman. My favorite one is called the classic French knot. First, you need to fold up your scarf until it’s one thin band. Then, wrap the band around your neck, crossing the two ends behind your neck. Bring the two ends to the front of your neck and tie a knot just under your chin. You can either keep the knot to the front or you can slightly turn the scarf so that the knot is on the side of your neck. Finally, once you placed the knot just make a double knot.
3. Une étole (a stole)
Finally, une étole is a thin but warm scarf, usually made of wool, acrylic, and viscose. Une étole is a large piece of fabric, very long and very wide. Its size is approximately 70cm by 2m.
How To Tie une étole (a stole)
Une étole can either be worn draped over the shoulders or if the stole is thin, it can also be worn as a scarf, tied at the front.

I’ve always been a lover of luxury scarfs, particularly those designed by British brands. Therefore, you can imagine my excitement on Christmas day when I was handed something in a beautifully hand crafted gift bag that looked suspiciously like the classic Burberry bag. Luxury packaging always creates a sense of anticipation, but this really caused a thrill.
Upon closer inspection it was a Burberry gift bag (hurrah!). The bag was made from a smoke grey coloured thick card, with such quality that it almost felt like fabric. At the top of the bag was some gorgeous two-toned ribbon (recycled material, may I add) tied in a large bow above the matching smoke grey rope handles. A few inches below the ribbon were two royal crests, hot foil printed in gold and in the finest, most intricate detail I’ve ever seen. Underneath the crests sat the iconic Burberry font in gold, embossed at different levels, which allowed the light to bounce from it in all directions – you couldn’t help but run your fingers along the font to feel the tactility.
Once I’d gotten over how utterly lovely the gift bag was, I opened it to find a matching box secured with two-toned ribbon on the right hand side. The box material felt the same as the gift bag, and had the same golden royal crests printed and Burberry emboss in the middle – I couldn’t help but stroke the Burberry name again! Inside I found my colourful silk scarf wrapped perfectly in brown tissue paper sealed with a textured metallic gold sticker with ‘Burberry’ debossed in the centre – it even smelt like luxury.
Although the scarf was, of course, my new favourite in my collection – I couldn’t help but get really excited over the impressive packaging it was presented in. This particular scarf is definitely going to be stored in its box when not in use, as I cannot bear to part with the luxury packaging.
This wasn’t just any old packaging; every feature – the choice of material, the multi-level embossing, the intricate gold foil, the un-doing of the bow, the smooth way the lid of the box lifted – created a fantastic tactile experience that in turn generated huge excitement and anticipation before even seeing the gift itself. As I opened the packaging I was confident that I was going to get an item of quality and sophistication.
As far as I’m concerned, Burberry have perfected their luxury packaging and has managed to make a huge brand impact through their choice of materials and processes. Furthermore they’ve reinforced their values by using all British materials and (where possible) working with post-consumer waste and certified sources to ensure they’re doing their bit to help the environment. This present really reinforced to me the psychological impact that packaging can have, as it somehow managed to make what was already a wonderful and luxurious gift even more special, by creating a memorable, tactile experience for the recipient.
My experience has been so positive that I’ve decided that 2017 might just be the year that I treat myself to the traditional Burberry trench that I’ve always dreamt about. Now how about that for the power of packaging.
PS. I’ve just realised as an afterthought, that I haven’t given you any information about the scarf itself! It was a peony rose print check wool silk scarf. The print is taken from artwork hand-painted in the Burberry design studio and it is woven in Italy from a light and gauzy mix of wool and silk. You can buy one here.

Lets get on with it,initially off, understanding what to seem for is the initially line of defense when understanding how to spot fake Burberry scarves, and executing the study ahead of hand will give you an incredible edge.

Burberry scarves offered at the “Official Burberry site” collection in price tag on typical among $225 to $750, so if you uncover 1 unusually low cost, that need to increase a red flag. Another way to tell if you have or are getting an authentic Burberry scarf is to inquire another person who is an authority about Burberry scarves, this sort of as outlet retail store staff if your searching at an outlet keep, forums if your shopping on-line, Ebay offer’s an excellent forum with folks that know their solutions and how to establish item authenticity. Simply post the item number with your concerns and it won’t be extended in advance of you receive a thumbs up or down about your scarf.
Checking pattern patterns
This a single is not precisely the most viable way to establish if your Burberry scarf is genuine simply because there are so quite a few designs and designs, you would plainly have to have entry to an genuine scarf in order to check it in opposition to the 1 that your not guaranteed about, and it would have to be close to or the identical design and style. But on the other hand it will aid you to be on the seem out for suspicious looking scarves. If your not certain about the scarf you want to get do not get it until you can make an informed acquiring determination that your comfy with, don’t forget it really is your dollars and it does not come straightforward.
As winter is still here but not for long now and year after year we see many people wearing the classic famous Burberry Scarf in brown or as most of you would say ‘Camel’. I have just purchase mine a bit late with winter finishing however such a design and brand wouldn’t be out of fashion and style sooner or later.
My very own Burberry Scarf and packaging:
I’m sure many of you have seen the famous Burberry scarf in Various colours ranging from dark grey, black and all the way to green. No matter the colour of the scarf, we still know its a luxury branded design.
This iconic piece speaks for itself and not words are needed when seen wearing this famous classic iconic well know scarf. It can be worn with practically anything, adding that more class to an outfit especially a standard everyday look.
Where the scarf came from and production process.
In 1856, Burberry was just a small shop located on Haymarket Street in Hampshire, England The shop was run by a guy called Thomas Nicholas Burberry. He made many different items. Few years later and this small shop became a well known designer brand which many of us now shop at and know very well.
Going back to the famous Burberry Scarf. I love how the scarf is 100% cashmere and the cashmere on the Scarf comes from cashmere sheep. Knowing this, now gives you more insight as to why the prices for a Burberry Scarf is costly and this is why because Burberry have to wait a year before actually being able to make and put the next scarf out for sale. Well wouldn’t we all like to think that was true. In reality that would be a vey long wait and production of the Burberry Scarf. The cashmere is taken from the belly where the soft fur is found on the plant seen below:
In this process no animal cruelty is seen in the production of the Scarf. The scarf then get washed and woven in Scottish water and run through with thistles. And lastly the Scarf gets labelled and packed before it’s sold in store and online.
How to tell an Authentic and Replica Scarf
In order to see if the famous Burberry Scarf is real or not by the lines on the Scarf; blurred into one another means the scarf is real and authentic. It is very hard to spot a fake Burberry Scarf. The Fake Scarf will have uneven lines and may contain wider spaces in-between the line or wider blurred lines itself.
The strips on this Scarf should be vertical and horizontal. More likely having crooked strips on the Scarf would indicate a replica. There shouldn’t be any blending within the colours and most strips should meet cleanly meaning that not always will this be the case on a Burberry Scarf.
The Inside Tag & Zipper
Every tag on a real (Authentic) Scarf should match the colour of the lining with uniform stitching. The print will be straight and centred and the back of the tag will say ‘Made in Italy’ with a code underneath it. With the zipper always saying Burberry on both the sides.
By far, Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons of the year because I really love to layer, which makes styling so much more fun. I get to play with a ton of different pieces that I don’t get to wear during the warmer months. There are so many more garments to work with and of course, amazing accessories to throw into the style mix! One of my favorite go-to layering staples are scarves: —there are so many colors, patterns, and textures available, you can easily add an extra kick to your outfit with a great scarf and a little imagination.
I’ve teamed up with Burberry and Vanity Fair to style five of my favorites from the new Burberry Scarf Bar which just launched. It allows you to personalize each scarf by monogramming a broad range of cashmere-scarf options in their stores and online. Each scarf is skillfully woven in Scotland, a process perfected by generations of craftsmen. I love Burberry because it’s such an iconic brand, definitely one of my favorites and their accessories are always such a big fashion statement. Check out their Scarf Bar, try personalize your favorites and let me know which ones you went for and how you wore them! I would love to hear what you think.
Such a good idea! Fall means that the layering game can start, and this is what I love during the colder months. There are so much more opportunities! x

In the latest round of copycat fashion, Burberry is suing Target for ripping off its iconic check pattern.
In a suit filed last week in New York’s Southern District Court, the British heritage fashion brand accuses Target of “repeated, willful, and egregious misappropriation of Burberry’s famous and iconic luxury check trademarks.”
Back in 2017, Burberry discovered Target was selling products like luggage, water bottles, and eyeglasses with its famous plaid pattern and sent Target a cease-and-desist letter. But once it found Target was also selling scarves with Burberry’s pattern at a fraction of the price, the English fashion brand finally decided to take the chain to court.

“Although Target’s copycat scarves are of inferior quality, they are superficially indistinguishable from genuine Burberry scarves,” the suit reads. “Target’s misuse of the Burberry Check Trademark . has significantly injured Burberry’s hard-earned reputation and goodwill, and has diluted the distinctiveness.”
Fashion brands steal design ideas all the time. And it’s completely legal.
Burberry’s history with the check design dates back to the 1920s, when the company decided to line the inside of its famous water-resistant trench coats with a check pattern. Although the design closely resembles plaid common in Scottish tartan design, Burberry filed for its trademark in 1921, and the check design has become inextricably tied to Burberry ever since. The company started making scarves and umbrellas with the pattern in 1967, and Burberry over time developed into a brand associated with Britain’s upper class.
During the wave of ’90s logomania, Burberry used the check design on everything (to the point where England soap opera actress Danniella Westbrook was snapped by the paparazzi wearing Burberry plaid from head to toe). Burberry diluted its brand image further during the 2000s by issuing a slew of licenses to manufacture the hell out of the pattern.
Eventually, the brand fell out of favor with the English elite. But over the past five years, former president and chief creative officer Christopher Bailey was able to reposition Burberry as luxury by using the pattern more sparingly. At one point, Burberry was only using the check design for 10 percent of its merchandise.
Bailey exited the brand in February of this year, but before he left, he reintroduced the classic check pattern into its fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection with a vengeance. Burberry is now selling check coats, vests, pants, and shoes. The return of Burberry check comes at an opportune time, as ’90s fashion is back in style and millennial customers are opting for nostalgia purchases like merchandise with designer logos.

But if the British brand is going to start leaning back into its trademark design once again, it’s going to have to go after rogue offenders like Target. This time, it has the upper hand in the form of an actual trademark, and it’s fair to assume Burberry is not going to back down on this battle.

Your neck is gonna be SO warm.
Forget sweater season, it’s all about scarf season! Yes, knits are a cold-weather must, but the thing that makes your winter outfit look even cozier is a chic scarf thrown around your neck. It’ll save you from icy wind and it’s a great way to dress up or add a little something extra to your ensemble. And there are so many ways to wear them! Whether you’re knotting, looping, or knotting AND looping yours, the way you style your scarf can change up your ‘fit in an instant.
Here, I took some rectangular scarves I had in my closet to demonstrate nine ways to wear them. And if you ever doubted your scarf-styling skills (I’m guessing that’s why you landed on this very page), these are all super simple to nail, trust me.
There are even more ways to wear them depending on the other kinds of scarves you have like square ones or infinity ones, but longer rectangular ones are arguably the most basic and popular style during the colder months.
Need more winter how tos? Here are the different ways to wear a beanie and exactly how to clean those suede boots that have water damage or salt on them from last year. But back to scarves—let’s get into how to wear ’em below!
This one’s pretty simple. Just throw it around your neck and let it hang, making sure the sides are even.
The Internet makes it easy to find deals on designer items, and eBay is an especially popular site for finding brand-name shoes, clothing and handbags at relatively low costs. If you’re a fashionista looking for a Burberry bargain online, buyer beware! Many eBay sellers are honest, but some are trying to rip off less experienced shoppers with untrained eyes. The only way to be sure that you’re getting the real thing is to buy from a certified Burberry retailer, but if you simply can’t resist the thrill of a deal, be an informed buyer. Never buy a bag that you can’t see, scrutinize pictures carefully and know what you’re looking for to ensure that you don’t buy a fake.
Know your Burberry patterns, and check the pattern on the bag against a photograph of a verified authentic Burberry. The two most popular Burberry patterns are the Classic Check and the Nova Check. The Classic Check pattern features a tan base background, decorated with black, white and red horizontal and vertical stripes and a faded knight insignia positioned at the intersection of two red lines. The Nova Check pattern is similar, with slight variations. The background has a light yellow undertone, and the lines that are red in the Classic Check pattern have a pinkish hue instead. The Nova Check pattern does not have the faded knight insignia.
Handbags-N-Guides warns that any “creative” deviation from these well-known patterns may signal a fake. Avoid any bags that are missing pattern elements, or that include additions to these traditional patterns. Ensure that squares created by the intersecting lines are neat and even. A sloppy pattern indicates a low-quality fake.
Look at the material that makes up the bag. Classic Check bags have leather trim, which may be matte, smooth and brown or glossy and red. Nova Check bags are trimmed with black leather, which may be either matte or glossy. According to the Authentic BURBERRY Purse Buying Guide, the bags themselves are not made from leather, but from vinyl-coated canvas (also known as PVC).
If possible, get a close look at the stitching that comprises the Burberry pattern. On a real Burberry handbag, stitching will be straight and even with no loose threads.
Check the pattern alignment. Lines running down the side of the bag should meet up exactly with lines running along bottom. If the bag has multiple sides (for example, if you have a cylinder-shaped handbag with two circular ends), the pattern on one side should be identical to the pattern on the other.
Look at interior plaques and tags. The bag should have either a metal plaque engraved with the words “Burberry – London,” or a leather tag with the same words embossed on it. If the bag has a leather tag, check the back of it. Many (but not all) Burberry bags have “MADE IN ITALY” stamped on the back of the leather tag, along with a serial number. If the bag’s tag does not say “MADE IN ITALY” on the back, but all other signs show that you have a genuine Burberry, you’re still looking at a real bag. Today, Burberry makes some items in China, especially smaller bags and accessories–a “MADE IN ITALY” stamp helps ensure authenticity, but a bag is not necessarily a fake if this feature is missing.
Examine the bag’s lining. If the handbag is real, it should be lined with black canvas, beige pigskin suede or Burberry’s signature fabric. Burberry signature fabric has a thick jacquard base, with BURBERRY woven repeatedly throughout in glossy beige, black, brown or red thread.
Check the purse’s hardware. Zippers should be gold or silver, and the color of the hardware should match the color of the embossing on the leather tag inside the handbag. Exterior zippers should be metal, and the back of the zippers will be engraved with one of two brand names–Lampo (without the lightning bolt) or riri. Interior zippers may be plastic YKK zippers, without any backside engraving.
Look at the extra packaging that comes with the bag. Both the paper tag and box should be dark blue (almost black) with silver lettering. Older dust bags packaged with Burberry purses are navy blue with light blue lettering and a drawstring; newer bags are tan in color with a black drawstring closure.
Following these tips can help you to ensure that you’re buying a real Burberry, but there are no guarantees unless you buy from an official retailer. If authenticity is important to you, buy from Burberry online or track down an authorized reseller using Burberry’s website.

If there was a singular must-have item among the street style set last winter, it was the initialed, plaid Burberry poncho that first appeared on the British brand’s fall 2014 runway. After the piece made its debut, it was spotted on the likes of Cara Delevingne, Olivia Palermo, Suki Waterhouse and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and with celebrity placements as solid as these, it’s not surprising that the label saw a spike in sales in the months that followed. Burberry has hinted that customers could expect its poncho offering — as well as its customization options — to increase in the coming seasons, and on Tuesday, the company announced a brand new initiative that makes good on its promise.
Launching online and in stores, the “Scarf Bar” allows shoppers to design a classic cashmere scarf, completely personalized to their own specifications. With more than 30 colorways available — as well as 30 shades of thread for embroidering initials — it’s the first time the company has offered this large of a customizable offering for accessories. (The Burberry Bespoke program that launched in 2011 does allow for up to 12 million combinations for those who want to create a totally unique trench coat.)
The scarves are made from 100 percent cashmere and are woven at Scottish mills, but craftsmanship like this comes with a hefty price tag: A monogrammed “classic” scarf (the smaller, heavier option) retails for $550, while the “lightweight” larger option comes to $870 after initials are embroidered. But if the commercial success of last year’s ponchos is any indication, it’s money people will be willing to shell out, especially come holiday season.

Scarves might just be my favorite accessory. If I had to shop for just one thing that I could use for the rest of my life (but why would someone do that to me?), it might be a scarf.
Scarves are so versatile. They don’t judge you, they don’t miraculously shrink when you’re pregnant or put on a few pounds, and they have a tendency to stick around.
But how to tie a scarf? That’s another story! We asked our friends for their favorite methods and came up with 19 ( woo-hoo! ) different scarf tying ideas you can try. Just read through this post or check out the video at the end to learn how to tie each one like a pro.

19 Ways to Tie a Scarf
All you need is a large square or rectangular scarf to create these 19 different looks. I used a couple of my favorite scarves in various sizes, but you only need one scarf to make the majority of these knots.
Obviously, a shorter scarf is best for neckties and basic drapes, while a longer scarf is good for the more complicated knots. And heavy winter scarves are ideal for a simple toss and tuck, in my experience. But feel free to try each knot with a few different types of scarves to see how it looks.
1. The Braid
Fold the scarf in half and place it around your neck. Take the loose ends of the scarf and pull them through the loop, making sure not to pull it too tight. Now, twist the loop and pull the loose ends through again. Continue twisting the loop with one hand and pulling the ends through until you run out of scarf.
It’s a story as old as time.В Girl sees designer item she cannot afford, girl subsequently falls in love and saves for an entire year to make it hers, and the two live happily ever after. Of course, in this somewhat autobiographical tale, the girl was a 16-year-old me, and the designer item in question was a beautiful, hand-illustrated Fendi silk scarf that I saw in an airport. I worked a very unglamorous job at a local bakery in order to afford it, and honestly, every single flour-covered hour was worth it.В
As far as designer purchases go, I’d say a scarf is the ultimate first luxury buy. You get all the excitement of shopping a designer brand without the eye-wateringly high price ofВ a leather handbag or aВ ready-to-wearВ piece.В
Designer scarves are also hugely versatile. Within the first few years of owning mine, I wore it as a necktie, a belt, and a headband. I tied it around handbags as an additional accessory and even folded the scarf in half to fashion it as a top. In the years since, the item has claimed its rightful position as a piece of artwork on my bedroom wall. (The scarf features illustrated images of Fendi Baguette bags in an array of colours, so really, I should have known it was artwork all along.)В
For a first designer purchase, I couldn’t recommend a scarf enough, and with each luxury fashion house creatingВ its own unique designs, it can be quite easy to fall in love with a scarf (or two). From timeless monogrammed stylesвЂ”of whichВ Burberry and GucciВ excelвЂ”to artfully drawn prints and patterns, keep scrolling to see scarves worth the first investment.
On Friday, Burberry staged an in-person runway show—the house’s first in two years—at the grandiose Central Hall Westminster in the heart of London, a stone’s throw away from the Houses of Parliament. It doesn’t get more British than Westminster and Burberry together again, as creative director Riccardo Tisci noted when discussing the collection, saying it “embodies an intangible essence that is Britishness, a unique fusion of honouring the beauty of the past, whilst also remaining focussed on the future.”
Amid tense national politics in the United Kingdom and war in Ukraine, Tisci was thinking locally about how the Brits have dressed for centuries, and how they want to dress moving forward. His keen eye for streetwear and what the youth wants to wear right now melded with classic English sensibility in what is arguably his most successful collection for the brand yet.
The opulent setting was configured as a private dining room, with guests including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Simone Ashley stationed around the runway as models such as Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk walked onstage and around the tables. The clothes started with classic Tisci silhouettes: dresses and skirts in classic Burberry tartans nipped high at the waist, paired with simple blouses and sleek leather thigh-high boots.
In an ingenious move, Tisci rendered Burberry’s iconic Equestrian Knight Design in crystal—blown-up to cover a sweater set entirely and repeated on black silk dresses. Workwear coats and sharp blazers paired seamlessly with polka dots, scarves, and patchwork matching sets, all working harmoniously to drive home the impossibly cool modern-day flair.
Tisci has been playing around with the iconic Burberry trench silhouette since he joined the house in 2018, but no other iterations have been as successful as the strapless gowns he created with trench-ified corsets. Rendered in classic beige, puffed black, and even yellow feathers, these gowns felt instantly fresh without veering into gimmicky territory, as some other experimental pieces have in past collections.
This time around, the austerity of the clothes was counteracted with fresh accessories like crystal facepieces, technical glasses, and baseball caps. Whereas in previous seasons, Tisci was more likely to roll the dice, this season felt decidedly restrained and studied in its approach. Maybe the sober location provided a cleaner slate for the pieces to simply be admired, or maybe Tisci is filtering more of what he wants to say into what works for a customer buying clothes today. Either way, not showing on the schedule and on his own terms seems to have worked in his favor.

There’s nothing I love more than a great hair accessory. Typically I go for bows, headbands or hat. But the scarf, the scarf is making a major comeback and I’m totally obsessed. I’m always looking for ways to update my hairstyles and look (only so much I feel I can do with short hair!) so I’ll take the inspiration any place i can find it. It’s funny how something so simple like a scarf can totally transform your look. But did you know that there were so many different ways to wear a scarf in your hair? I sure didn’t, till now!
One of my favorite things about the scarf hair trend is that there are so many options and colors and styles to choose from. You can go for a classic square scarf like a bandana, or a rectangular silk long scarf. Or heck, even “cheat” and buy one already tied for you so all you have to do is slip it on your head. And no matter what your color or print preference is, there’s a scarf out there for you. Really, the possibilities are endless.
How To Wear A Scarf In Your Hair: 6 Different Ways
Now, there are a million different ways to wear a scarf in your hair. One quick Pinterest search and you’ll be overwhelmed with inspiration. And let’s be honest, we’ve all had a dirty hair day and used a scarf to hide the grease, ha! But hey, that’s a good thing right? A girl loves options! Today, I’m sharing 6 different ways to wear a scarf in your hair that I’m currently looking to try out for myself this upcoming spring season.
You can throw your hair up in a classic messy top knot or bun and simply wrap the scarf around the base a couple of times to create this effortlessly chic look. I find this look is easiest when you use a classic cotton bandana.
The classic ponytail tie is certainly the easiest scarf style to achieve. Simply place your hair in a ponytail and knot the scarf around the base and let the ends hang down. This look is perfect with a rectangle silk scarf in a fun print!
This is such a great style to do when maybe your hair is a little dirty/greasier than normal. Dry shampoo can only take you so far, ha! Take your scarf and knot it at the top of your head and then tuck the ends underneath.
Such a feminine look with minimal effort. Take a thin silk scarf and wrap it around the top of your head and tie in a bow at the nape of your neck. You can secure this style with bobby pins.
Vintage Glam Wrap
If you’re feeling extra glam, this vintage wrap style is seriously so fun and unexpected. Great for when the wind is going crazy and you want to tame your mane.
Ok, how cool is this scarf braid tie look? Just tie the scarf (I’d keep it to a thinner silk style) around the base of your ponytail and use it as one of the 3 “sections” when you do your braid. Tie in a bow at the bottom and that’s it!
So there we have it, a fun few new ways to style scarves in your hair this season. While you can certainly wear them now with your favorite cozy knits and sweaters, I’m really wanting to try this trend for spring. Won’t it just be SO cute with a sweet sundress and sandals and your hair up in a scarf? Feels very vintage glam and I am here for it!

Scarves are such a great way to dress up a casual outfit and a great opportunity to get creative with hairstyles and as you mentioned, cheat on a not so great hair day. I use a different colorful scarves most days around the house to help keep my hair tidy for when I leave the house. These are great suggestions for using them as an accessory. I especially love the braid and the simple option of tying it on a ponytail.

Burberry’s special-edition scarf for Chinese New Year.
When the Chinese Year of the Horse came around last year, British luxury brand Burberry had it made. Since the label’s own logo bears the majestic creature, it launched a collection of special-edition holiday gift items and gold gift boxes emblazoned with its emblem. Now that we’re in gift-giving season for the Year of the Sheep, it’s taking a different route that hasn’t been too popular with Chinese internet commenters as foreign brands struggle to create special items for the China market that don’t fall flat with consumers.
Instead of referencing this year’s zodiac animal, Burberry opted to emblazon its signature plaid scarf with a bright red monogram with the character fu (福), which means “prosperity” and is often displayed for Chinese New Year. Users on microblogging platform Weibo weren’t impressed, taking to the platform to say that the scarf “looks fake” and the character isn’t turned upside-down, which is how it’s typically displayed for the holiday (this means that prosperity has arrived—the words for “upside down” and “to arrive” sound the same in Mandarin).
Special items for the China market have become increasingly common among Western luxury brands over the past several years, and are especially prevalent during China’s most important gift-giving season. Goods often made with red and gold—colors auspicious in Chinese culture—along with items bearing the year’s zodiac animal are typical.
Attention to Chinese culture is important for the creation and presentation of special-edition China items. For the Year of the Sheep, Johnnie Walker recently released a bottle of its Blue Label Whisky depicting an image inspired by the famous Chinese painting Three Rams from the Emperor Qianlong era during the Qing dynasty. In order to see the full painting with the Johnnie Walker label at once, four bottles can be displayed together. Chinese consumers will be more likely to gift single bottles, however—four is an inauspicious number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word for “death” in Chinese.
For the Year of the Dragon in 2012, Ferrari created a “Marco Polo red” $870,000 limited-edition Italia model with a dragon emblazoned on it exclusively for China, and then proceeded to film a wheel-spinning stunt on top of a 600-year-old wall in Nanjing. The wheels left tire marks on the historic structure, prompting Ferrari to issue an official apology to the Chinese government.
While not associated with Chinese New Year, the “takeout box” handbag is another example of a cultural faux pas with the China market. The style was created by Chanel in 2010 and subsequently emulated by Kate Spade and Charlotte Olympia. When the Kate Spade bag was presented at New York Fashion Week in 2014 after it was ostensibly inspired by a trip to Shanghai by the brand’s creative director, Weibo commenters responded with confusion and mockery. That’s because the shape of the box is only common in American Chinese restaurants, not actual restaurants in China. Those that did understand found the bag to be tacky, instead expressing preference for a bag in the shape of a Japanese-style maneki-neko cat in the same collection.
There are several things brands can do with special China items to make sure their Chinese New Year items don’t fall short. The first is to stay true to their own heritage and aesthetics—for example, Burberry could have had more Year of the Sheep success by promoting its wool items. For foreign brands, teaming up with Chinese artists and designers is also a good bet—Château Mouton Rothschild is hosting a special auction with Sotheby’s in Hong Kong featuring bottles with ram images created by Chinese and other artists. The key for brands to remember is that the China market is home to savvy and sophisticated consumers who won’t hesitate to point out a cultural slip-up when they see one.
Goodness gracious, guys. Can we believe that it’s finally Friday?! I’m still pretty sick and overtired, but I’m beyond excited, as our little family is departing for the East Coast when Mitch gets home from work today. Tomorrow, my brothers, sister-in-law and Grammie will meet Emma for the first time. Cue the waterworks. I’m such the emotional crier.
Today is being spent organizing the house, tying up work-related loose ends, and packing bags for everyone. (Pray for me.) Typically, when I pack for long trips, I end up bringing SO much. I can’t help myself. But this trip is going to be different, because I feel like I’m slowly transitioning myself from owning a ton of stuff to owning only what I love.
It’s been somewhat of a difficult transition. 😉 Like, it’s pretty nice to have lots of options to choose from, right? Over the last couple of years, though, I’ve realized that my ineffectiveness at pairing down my closet every so often was leaving me feeling overwhelmed. And as a result, I just wore the same stuff every day. Whatever sweaters were on top, whatever shoes were worn last, and whatever bags I could actually reach.
I’ll admit that I’m far from where I want to be. 😉 But lately I’ve been ruthless with getting rid of things. Mitch is awesome with selling stuff that has value (he actually pumps that earned money into the mortgage), some of it goes to his students and our families and friends, and the rest is donated. And I’m re-thinking how I look at my closet and “fashion.” I’m leaning more towards owning a few very nice bags, pairs of jeans, pairs of shoes, and accessories–things that don’t go out of style and will last a long time–and living a simpler life as a result.
So let’s talk about the nicest scarf I’ve ever owned. It was an investment, for sure, but as with my Louis Vuitton tote, my Burberry Jacket and my Stuart Weitzman boots, investment pieces are worth it for me. (I wrote about that here.) For example, I haven’t purchased a new bag since the LV came into my life. Mitch is thrilled! Haha.
But back to that scarf. It’s the classic Burberry Heritage Scarf, and I’ve admired it since college. (High school, maybe?) My dad got my mom one a long time ago, and she’s worn it for years, and she’ll totally agree that she doesn’t own very many other scarves because she always reaches for her Burberry. LOVE IT.
I went for the classic “Camel Check,” as that’s what Mom has and I want to be like her. 😉 But I love it in “ash rose,” too. It’s 100-percent cashmere, and it feels like heaven on. And while I usually go for blanket scarves these days and wasn’t sure how I’d like the smaller size, I adore it. I mean, it’s Burberry. You don’t need a lot of it to make a statement! (Although I have to admit that I do love the larger Giant Check Print Wool & Silk Scarf, Brit Sheer Mega Check Scarf, Giant Check Scarf and the Mulberry Silk Blend Travel Scarf. They’re just lighter-weight, and mine is much warmer and cozier for Chicago winters! (Maybe one day, though!)
Of course, I bought my scarf through Nordstrom, as it’s the best retailer ever, haha, and carries the best accessories. No but seriously: I’ve always loved Nordstrom, but I think I really discovered its magic this year. Like I keep saying, the collection is just so perfectly curated. The company also offers free shipping and returns, and the best-ever customer service… so the ordering/returning process is always incredibly easy. Jess and I always say that we’re addicted! I mean, have you seen the Winter Guide?!
Anyway, my scarf is definitely coming back home with me. Shop my other favorite scarves from Nordstrom below! (WHAT A BEAUTY.) And hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun post!
Also: a big round of applause for Mitch. These photos were snapped well after the sun had set, and he somehow managed to make them beautiful. Love you, Mitch. Thank you for being so supportive and awesomely creative, and for taking me out for a hot soup date last night. 😉
A gorgeous silk scarf can feel intimidating to try — that is, until now.
TODAY Style scoped out top trends and found four styles that can instantly turn you into a modern Audrey Hepburn (just add sunglasses). Here’s how to tie that silk scarf like a pro!
Four stylish ways to tie a silk scarf
1. The French Girl Twist
Those Parisiennes and their classic, timeless style . le sigh. Re-create this playful, Paris-meets-cowgirl style with just a simple double-knot. It pairs beautifully with anything from a scoop neck dress to a crisp button down.

- Fold scarf into a triangle.
- Drape scarf around neck with the large point of triangle facing forward.
- Criss cross ends around the neck and bring forward.
- Tie a double-knot in front.
2. The Choker Neckerchief
The edginess of a choker meets the whimsy of a scarf in this charming and modern look. It can simultaneously soften and toughen up nearly anything in your closet.

- Fold scarf into a triangle and roll up.
- Wrap around neck, crossing ends behind your neck and pulling them forward in front of you.
- Tie a knot beneath the chin.
- Shift scarf to the left or right side, leaving the long ends to hang loose.
3. The Plaited Spiral
We love this style that reshapes your scarf into a voluminous necklace. This is a go-to amps up basics, taking your standard weekend uniform of jeans and a T-shirt to the next level.

- Fold scarf into a triangle.
- Fold the largest point back into the triangle.
- Roll up!
- Wrap scarf around your neck and pull ends forward.
- Tie a knot.
- Twist the two ends around each other, keeping the fabric as loose and fluffy as possible, until it starts looking like a braid.
- Tie a double knot making sure to wrap one end around neck.
- Shift scarf to the left or right side of your neck.
4. The Cross-Hatch
The origami-inspired knot of this casual style ups the sophistication quotient. Style with long, lean pieces that echo the scarf’s directional flow — like a shift dress!

- Fold scarf into a triangle and roll up.
- Wrap from behind the neck so both ends hanging loose in front.
- Cross ends and bring one end to the back and around.
- Isolate the loop created.
- Grab the other end of the scarf and feed it into the loop.
- Pull to tighten.
