Who doesn’t love a good scarf? And especially — who doesn’t love a good ’80s scarf? The 1980s was the decade I struggled with scarves before finally learning the tricks of tying and draping to make them look just tossed on. Scarf-wearing is indeed an art, and today we take a look back at some of my favourite ’80s scarf-wearing images.
