Scarves. Empress Josephine had a wide collection of them. After WWII, British and American women wore scarves to promote national pride and post-war symbolism. To this day, there is so much more to be said about what may seem to many like a simple and versatile accessory.

When you look at some of the most powerful professional women of our time, such as IMG Managing Director, Christine Lagarde, her accessory of choice has inspired many to follow, too, wearing this “new power symbol”. As I like to call it The Power Scarf, boldness in choice of material and colour shares a deeper meaning about women taking a lead in their line of work.

Ultimately, the true accessory is confidence.
