Vintage Scarves

I have spent the afternoon washing and sorting a lovely collection of vintage 1950's -1970's scarves ready for my first vintage fair on the 28th March at Saltaire. The colours and patterns are just fabulous and it got me thinking how such a simple piece of clothing has continuously played a part in our wardrobes, with different looks but always with a sense of glamour and style.
 
 
Look how beautiful Audrey Hepburn and Bridget Bardot look wearing headscarves.

Sophie Loren looks stunning in this colourful head scarf.
 
I am delighted with my latest scarf finds, including several renowned British company, Jacqmar scarves all in excellent condition. 


 
The colours and patterns of the 1960's scarves are full of fun and to me sum up the vibrancy of the fashion at that time, but can still hold a place in our wardrobes today.

 
 Grace Kelly looking elegant wearing a neck scarf.
 
 
Elizabeth Taylor proving that wearing a neck scarf really can look sexy!
 


 
Diana Ross looks so cool , the 1970's still relied on the faithful scarf to add to the finished look.
 
 
Of course we can't fail to give a nod to Madonna who rocked the retro style headscarf in the 1980's. I remember this look painfully well!

Judging by some of the 2015 Spring /Summer catwalk shows it looks like the scarf still has a place in our wardrobes!
