Al Pacino wore one with his dark suit and open shirt collar in The Godfather, and so did other distinguished actors like Michael Caine and Clark Gable. The silk scarf or foulard, worn as an ascot, adds verve, depth and character with its colour and texture, elevating any unassuming ensemble. French luxury maison Hermes is celebrated, not only for crafting the finest leather bags, but also for their signature silk scarves. To exude genuine style, wear one knotted insouciantly round the neck to take you one step ahead of the monochromatic hordes.
