A new season must have - How a pom pom scarf can give some ancient favourites a new lease of life...

We all know that a few good staples can work season after season and year after year and for this outfit I'm going to do a quick calculation of the age of my outfit:

  • GAP boyfriend jeans, mercilessly dumped last year for the Jigsaw boyfriend jeans but now back in favour - 4 years;
  • Hobbs blazer - a rough guess but I would say 4 years;
  • Hobbs pale blue knit - again 4 years;
  • Jigsaw handbag - used to death, fixed by the Handbag clinic, and now back on the scene - 10 years;
  • Boden sunglasses - 3 years;
  • Gold Aldo espadrilles - the new kids on the block - 1 year.
Total outfit age: 26 years

But then this Jigsaw pom pom scarf (£59) came along and turned things around, bringing everything back up to date. This scarf is big, big, big and I'll be able to use it as a great cover up on hot days on the beach. Normally I would go for a brighter option, of which there are many but I just liked this shade of grey and the contrasting pom poms. 

Other colours of Jigsaw pom pom scarf....indigo, navy, pink, shrimp and yellow - almost one for every day of the week!
