Working Neutral Colours with the McQueen Scarf

Hi Everyone! Hope you've all had a fantastic day! The temperature in Melbourne has cooled down a little over the past week, and this was exciting for me as I find dressing for work in cooler weather is a lot easier than dressing for scorching temperature.

I pulled out my Alexander McQueen skull scarf today and decided that today will be the day for a bit of scarf action! :) You should never underestimate the power of a scarf. It is effortlessly chic and elegant. When you choose the right colour combinations with a refined texture such as silk,  and tie it around your neck or even tie it on your bag, the look is classic and will never go out of style.
Now, I know that wearing a skull scarf or skull anything to work, especially in a professional environment is probably a little controversial and may be frowned upon, so I paired it with something classic and neutral to tone down the edginess and create a clean silhouette.

I have always admired Alexander McQueen as a designer. While his collections are unique and technically exquisite, what really solidifies McQueen’s style icon status was his ability to inspire individuals and the fashion world to push the boundaries of style.  His designs are appealingly eclectic, with a cutting-edge mix of tradition and punk, and  are a true reflection of who he is, how he feels and what he believes in.  

Notorious for his theatrical runway shows that elevated fashion to a level of art, his reputation has been partly built on his unwillingness to conform to the norm, and his belief that true style is about cultivating individuality. Whenever I wear any of his designs, it makes me stand up a little taller, speak a little louder, challenge myself a little harder, and that, is exactly why you should wear a McQueen scarf to work!  RIP Alexander McQueen.
