It's a wrap! Why the scarf is a summer style essential

There are so many ways to wear our gorgeous range of Suburban Turban scarves and headbands, all year round - but they really come into their own in summer! Pictured above, our model is wearing an almost Tuscan-green silk square headband below our lovely Mila summer hat, which works beautifully both dressed-up and down (hot tip: use a quick mist of any hairspray to help stiffen a floppy hat that's starting to get a little too floppy!).

The only challenge will be in choosing which colours to pick and co-ordinate with your summer wardrobe (maybe choose a neutral or two, and one or two 'statement' shades, for contrast and when you want a 'pop' of fun colour!). Importantly, not all scarves are created equal! They vary in length, texture and uses. For example, our lovely long tying cotton scarves are beautifully plain and simple (although, of course, are too long to be worn under a summer hat). These come in a crinkled cotton that provides texture and volume and - essential for women undergoing chemo - they won't unravel once tied in place. These scarves can be tied in a variety of ways, all year round and look at all the wonderful colours they come in (decisions, decisions!).
