How to wear a plaid scarf?

Indeed, some scarves can cause itching due to the material, or the style of your scarf may not suit the rest of your outfit.

How to choose the right one?


In order to properly choose your plaid scarf, you must take into consideration a few important points.
First of all, quality is one of the most essential criteria, because for you to be totally comfortable in your plaid wrap, the material chosen must be perfect. For this winter, choose a natural material from animals for more comfort and softness. These materials such as alpaca wool, sheep wool or cashmere are the most recommended, because they have many benefits that bring warmth. Be careful that sheep's wool is not mixed with other synthetic materials, as this can cause allergies in the most sensitive people. Cashmere and alpaca wool are both very soft and warm, but the latter is more durable. By taking care of your wool and maintaining it, it will last a very long time, enough to keep your plaid scarf for many years. As for synthetic materials, they tend to deteriorate more quickly and do not always keep warm. The price is low, but in the long run, it is not so economical or ecological.
The size of the scarf will be the second criterion which will allow you to orient your choice. This scarf with large dimensions is normally in the so-called oversize format. Plaid scarves exist in all sizes and in several formats. You can find rectangular and square models or play with the lengths of the scarf by forming a triangle. To find this cosy and cocooning side adopt the rectangular model, the widest, because it is the one that is closer to a real plaid. With this one, you will be able to transform it in all ways so that you stay warm in any situation.
And finally, color and patterns also play a role in the choice of your plaid scarf. According to your taste and style, choose a plaid scarf that suits you best and that would match the rest of your dressing room. Tartan and houndstooth patterns are fashionable and timeless, as they go with everything. To stay in the sobriety and elegance opt for a plain color such as black, beige or white, it will fit perfectly with all your outfits. On the other hand, if you want to give a little more pep to your look, color and fancy patterns will be welcome.

This noble material is a rare fiber and is considered to be the softest material there is. In addition to its insulating benefits, it is a material that respects sensitive skin.

In the BellePaga scarf, you will no longer have any itching or skin problems. The softness and lightness of this fiber make this material prestigious. It is a very fine wool, but still 7 times warmer than that of sheep. Moreover, this fiber is very resistant and does not get damaged even after several washes. However, hand or dry washing is recommended in order to keep your garment in good condition (see Care). You will be able to wear it as many times as you want without any pilling problem. You will find at BellePaga several types of scarves for men and women with sumptuous patterns and colors that will delight your outfits.

They are often the real bread and butter of Peruvian alpaca farmers, who treat them like their own children. BellePaga's founders regularly check on site the breeding and working conditions to ensure that the values of respect, transparency and integrity are correctly implemented.
BellePaga also wants to limit its ecological impact by offering you products made of alpaca wool, an animal that does not damage its environment.
