Today scarves are made in many different sizes and materials to accomplish different purposes. Choosing the right scarf you can add flair to your clothing style. What follows is a guide to men's scarves and scarves for women.
The Different Types of Scarves
Scarves are typed by the material they're made out of and how long or wide they are. The most common scarves are winter scarves, which are thick wool scarves made to protect your neck from cold weather. There are also thinner sport scarves that are made from polyester.
Then there are scarves worn as fashionable accessories with tuxedos and overcoats. These scarves are thinner and lightweight to be worn during the winter or the summer, formally or informally.
The Best Fabrics for Scarves
Winter scarves tend to be made out of wool to keep the neck warm. Some scarves are made out of cotton because of their durability and can be easily washed, but most fashion scarves are made from other lightweight materials such as cashmere, chiffon, and silk. These materials are more delicate, but are soft and glossy.
Mulberry silk is a natural fiber produced by silkworms and is especially shiny. It is the most breathable of silks and does not absorb much sweat and moisture.
