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.
