What did Grace Kelly, Jackie O., Ingrid Bergman, Lauren Bacall, the Duchess of Windsor and Catherine Deneuve have in common? They all wore Hermes scarves, one of the most iconic accessories of the fashion world. A few years back I found an Hermes scarf in my mother’s closet (she’d set it aside unaware of how to wear it or even what Hermes was…) and I quickly scooped it up for my own wardrobe. It’s a lovely bright yellow and attracts more compliments than any other item I own. I love to tie it around the leather handles of my Longchamp Le Pilage bags to dress them up a bit. It’s fun to mix an affordable piece like a Longchamp with a splurge item like a French silk scarf. Everyone woman could use some of these spectacular colors in her wardrobe.
