I love textiles of all types, but I've never been sure how to wear a scarf. I always fear looking like (1) a flight attendant (2) a middle-aged lady consultant with flowing clothes (3) shorter and squatter than I actually am. The most I've done is to throw a scarf on when I wear a coat. So I'll try again, maybe with advice from A Woman of a Certain Age.
I've considered pared down my collection, but altogether I still have quite a pile of color.
