When should you wear scarf pockets?
It can be worn anywhere at any time — they work wonders when taking a hike, strolling through a farmers market, or grabbing lunch in the middle of the work day when you don’t want to carry a full purse. For it to be practical, pick one that has a deep pocket; has colors that fit your everyday style; and is a good length.
When traveling, the easiest route is to wear the scarf at all times. Don’t worry about wrinkles—it will retain its shape as long as you wear it. It is simple to pull off and won’t look frumpy. You can grab a spare for seasonal changes as well; having one warm and one cold weather accessory is ideal!
