I’m not one for scarves or shawls.
I think some people like to wear them just to feel expensive. I love fur, but I wouldn’t even wear a Mink shawl because it’s still a shawl. It’s just not my style. I’ll never be on my way out the door on a summer evening and remember, “Oh! Let me grab this shawl to throw over my shoulders incase it should get cool later.” I’d rather be cold and burn the calories. Maybe I’m not much of a draper, I prefer something with more of a sleeve. I remember one time I was going out with my girlfriend for the night and she grabbed a shawl on the way out, leaving me feeling stunned and speechless on her choice of garrish garbage garb. Shawl’s are basically blankets and I associate them with homeless people. I don’t care how nice the fabric may be, you look like a lazy bag lady.
The “elegant” (because that’s what Shawl’s do for your personality) lady below looks comfortable and classy, but I can’t help but to notice she’s basically in a blanket in public. I want to offer her a floor of pillows to relax on on.
Don’t even get me started on scarves. I own two, which my mom gave me, but I will never be seen wearing them. One is a vintage Martin Margiela and I might wear it one night to say to someone, “Who’s this scarf, Margiela?”
Nah, I’ll never wear it because I just don’t like scarves. For one, when I wear them I feel like I’m being choked and not in a hot way. They’re suffocating. They’re kind of a lame fashion statement, too. I really can’t stand people from LA and their thin scarves. What’s the deal with that? They can’t possibly be doing anything for your body temperature, it’s just an annoying long string hanging around your body waiting to get caught in a car door.
No joke, I broke up with a guy I was dating because he wore scarves (Sorry if you see this). It drove me insane.
I know I’m really going off on the idea that men can’t wear scarves, but for me it takes away their masculinity. I guess they aren’t allowed to be warm.
Actually, I don’t mind Jim Jones in this Louis shawl. Anyone else though wouldn’t get away with it.
But this guy…
