It takes a long period of time for a new idea to be accepted and assimilated in men’s fashion. Currently it’s all about the scarves: a classic that was forgotten. Well, not anymore.
When using a neckerchief remember that the rules are more or less the same as for the pocket squares: it doesn’t necessarily need to match to anything else you are wearing. Still it doesn’t mean that the combination of the scarf with the rest of your outfit is something simple.
The successful combination is a science by itself. It will depend a lot on personal style and intuition. Let’s say that to look good, a scarf has to look charming and discreet. It also helps to do some tests in front of the mirror before leaving the house.
