My favourite scarves of 2012

Hi everyone!! I thought I would do a 'show and tell' of my favourite scarves that were either bought, thrifted or given as gifts to me in 2012. As you may already know I am a denim addict-more of that is on my dedicated style blog Live To Love Denim but my other current style addiction is scarves. I love them in all colours, designs and materials and no matter if they are high street or designer they all add that something extra to outfits and stand the test of sizing issues and trends.

This first scarf was a pre Christmas buy by myself from H&M instore. It had been reduced to £4 and I love how it can be worn not only as a scarf but as a shawl/cape too. It is currently still on sale online here for £5:



My second scarf was from early 2012 and is a striped grey, baby pink and brown one by Hobbs, which I thrifted from my local Sue Ryder charity shop for just under £4. I wore it earlier with my brown Per Una down puffa coat and brown Pavers boots and it is the perfect neckwear of choice now the weather has dipped:


My next scarf was a Christmas present from my lovely mum when we spied it in the men's section of Marks & Spencer just before Christmas. It is available in a different colourway on line and what I love about it is that it is red tartan check, pure lambswool and was made in Great Britain. I wore it solidly over Christmas and New Year but am now giving it a little rest! The men's style to me worked out better quality than the ladies alternative-there was an orange and pink check scarf which was also lambswool, made in Great Britain but was actually smaller in length and width and was £25, so dearer than this one which was £19.50.


My next one is a blue leopardprint and star print scarf by Guess and was a present from my lovely son which he received in a goody bag from Guess at their Spring/Summer 2013 press day. I love the mix of the 2 prints  and is a great year round scarf:


This scarf was a present mid 2012 from a lovely friend and is actually by Burberry. It is a wool mix and has a gold thread running through it-it is very long and again is perfect as a year round scarf, definitely one of my firm favourites:


Of course my other favourite scarves from last year are my Mulberry scarf from Liberty's and my Liberty wool wrap scarf that I got in October.

I need to now enjoy wearing all of these and put them on a strict rotation! Have you got any favourite scarves that you purchased or was given as a present? Are scarves a passion for you?
Wishing you all a lovely weekend, apparently we have snow on the way but at least I am ready for it!!

I really like the scarf/cape combo. Everything about it! Color/design/shape, etc. I'll have to do a scarf post soon. I DO like them and have acquired quite a few this past year!

That guess scarf looks gorgeous and the rest of your collection is lovely too. I've got two favourite scarves at the moment - a bright green one I got in a sale for £3 and a black and cream scarf with polka dots from Wallis reduced in the sales. xx

I've seen that H&M one in-store but didn't realise it works as a shawl also - now v tempted to take a trip in tomorrow as I've some shoes to return! Loving the Hobbs one also. Aren't scarves just amazing? Most favourite thing in my wardrobe. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Avril x

I love love love scarves, I bought a huge animal print cotton one from primark months ago and I've worn it what must be several times a week since it's purchase! It's not only great with a coat but great with a cardi or a T shirt. I just loved it. I used to have a huge chiffon vintage sarong that I wore as a scarf, I lost it and I'm still sad about that *whimper*
