The Burberry Rainbow Cashmere Scarf Outfit
Happy Tuesday! Is it snowing where you are? I’ve been waiting for the snow to come for days now! Anyway, I thought I would share this look with you that we shot a couple of months ago and I never got the chance to publish it yet. You might remember this Rainbow Burberry Cashmere Scarf as I had it on my wish list for months back in the Summer, and I finally picked it up in Autumn in the sale!
It’s everything I was hoping for and more! It combines the camel house check with a beautiful rainbow stripe, which commemorates Christopher Bailey’s last collection for Burberry, and represents the LGBTQ community, which I am always in support of. Funnily enough, when the rainbow cape first hit the runway last year, I fell in love with it (it looks like this), but given the fact that it was over £1000 and I didn’t have much use for a cape, I never purchased it.
I was hoping so much that they would release a scarf just like it, but I was beginning to doubt it because the only rainbow scarves that were appearing were not what I was looking for, until that magical day when this arrived! I knew I had to have it and it was exactly what I was looking for, plus the fact that it’s reversible so you can wear red plaid on the other side, it basically makes three scarves in one! I was just waiting for that all important discount before making the purchase, and I’m glad I did!
So this is the first outfit that I wore my Burberry Rainbow Cashmere Scarf with and it’s a mixture of older pieces, but brought to life. I wore my PAIGE Margot Skinny Jeans in Black, although I’m not liking the fit so much of these anymore as they’re quite loose around the calves. I also wore my brown roll neck top from ASOS, an old River Island cardigan that I have had for years, my Sam Edelman boots, and then finished it off with my Gucci Marmont GG Velvet Bag!
My idea for this outfit was to keep things warm and neutral with the black, brown and beige elements, to harmonise with the camel tones of the scarf, but then to let the rainbow stripes be the full focus of the entire look so the scarf would stand out. I think I achieved that as every time I look at these photos my eyes are instantly drawn to the colours, and then I see everything else after, and start noticing the details, fabrics and the GG logo from my bag etc., so I’m happy with it.
Also, on another note, when we were taking these photos, it was nice and dry, quite bright, and good lighting, then within 5 minutes, it got really dark, the heavens opened, and it poured down! In typical British fashion, we hid under the stone frame in the white doorway which you can see in the photos where I’m stood, until it had stopped, then continued the photoshoot about 10 minutes after. So even though I have tried to get the lighting to match in all of these photos, some are different, my hair’s a bit humid and puffy, and the ground is wet in a couple (the last pic, and the two torso shots) ha ha, so I thought I would include that as a funny tale since this happens all the time in England. Don’t worry, I did have an umbrella, but Adam didn’t, which is why we took shelter. Anyway, let me know what you think of the outfit and my scarf! Lorna xx.
