Karlie, oh Karlie, let down your hair!

Rapunzel perfection.

Hermes has long been the authority in refinery, established in the mid 19th century as a saddle shop by a Frenchman. French and English influences have made it what it is today – the ultimate in luxury, based on a strong tradition of “refined elegance.”

I’ve seen super-creative ways to utilize Hermes scarves, from ottoman covers (throw a lucite box with baubles in it on top), pillows, wall hangings; Grace Kelly used an Hermes scarf as a sling when she broke her arm. A great introduction to Hermes scarves is a twilly.

Twillys are genius in that they don’t cost a lot (relatively speaking), but they give you that little bit of Hermes exclusivity. I tie mine on bags, around my neck, around my head, and mostly around my wrists as a bracelet. The next size up jumps in price, so my tip? Look in the mens department for pocket squares. They’re a little less in price but have all the color and impact that a large womens scarf does.
