A month ago, I purchased several scarves from the Princess Rockz plain hijabs collection. I'd been wanting a staple black scarf for a while and after seeing the Summer Drape Tutorial by @Alz_uk I was drawn to the light weight viscose material. I thought this Black Maxi Scarf would be great as it's thin and breathable. It's a bit see-through but if you fold it over or wrap around twice and it becomes opaque. Two layers won't mean that the scarf becomes overly chunky but it does provide good volume. It also makes a great neck scarf for Winter as it's long enough to be wrapped around twice.
As the scarves are so light, they're great in warm weather and I'm looking forward to wearing it in the Summer months. August in Bologna is usually a sweltering affair and so a light scarf is a god-send. Now, as odd and paradoxical as this sounds, I've actually found these scarves great for the chilly months in Bologna too. It's just touching zero degrees outside nowadays and so Italians have the central heating on full blast indoors and the contrast usually brings me out in a sweat once I've climbed the two flights of marble stairs to my work. To combat this, I decided to use a thin scarf and then just layer up with a thick scarf around my neck when I'm outdoors which I can then remove once inside away from the chill. And as the scarf can be puffed up it means it isn't left looking flat and destroyed by weight of the thicker scarf during transit. Both scarves keep their shape throughout the day so they don't become flat. It's awful when you look in the mirror and find your scarf has migrated south, become skew-whiff and looks rather sorry for itself.
