I know, I know. Traditionally, silk scarves are reserved for ladies over a certain age to wear across their shoulders as a shawl or hipsters to wear as a headband.
And while both of those looks are iconic in their own respect, it doesn’t always leave much room for the rest of the world.
But happily, that narrow and outdated image of the silk scarf’s versatility is so last season, friends.
Just ask MOGA, the Australian start-up label whose silk crepe de chine scarves are as affordable as they are ethical and most importantly, stylish.
Better yet, they’re something I’d not only want to buy my mum for Mother’s Day but also for myself on pay day. That is a rare fashion feat indeed because as a general rule, mother daughter dressing and clothes sharing is just generally a bit weird, isn’t it?
Retailing at AU$50, the scarves can be worn in literally dozens of ways. One quick scroll through their Instagram account shows one woman using the product as a headband, while another opts to wear it as a hijab. Another says the scarf has become her best friend during chemo, while another has styled the scarf into a summer-by-the-pool-esque turban (a look I aim to be cool enough to emulate one day, but baby steps).
