How to wear a Buff headscarves

Monday, 22 Jul 2013

This is one piece of clothing that is truly multi-season. Wrap up in it during winter and it'll stretch to provide a vital layer against the wind, covering whatever you need covering.

The polyster microfibre might just be the simplest accessory you'll ever buy. It might also just be one of the best.

Buff boasts an SPF rating of 30 or more (exceeding most Doctor recommended level of sun protection). Made of tech fibers wicking moisture from the skin keeping you warm in the cold, & cool in the heat. Wear alone as a scarf, cap, pirate, face mask, and more!

Buff is very thin & doesn’t change the shape of your head, allowing your protective helmet(s) to properly work. Perfect for gardeners, runners, and for those undergoing Chemotherapy.


We have a wide range of Buff headscarves to suit any style:

How to pack your suitcase

It’s that time of year again, you’ve got a great deal on you flights and you are off abroad. That great deal on your flights means that you only have hand luggage. So how do you pack all those shoes, dresses, phone chargers and your wide brim hat.


Here some top tips:


Take your nicest things

Those "special" things you save for high days and holidays? Take them. OK, maybe leave the diamonds at home if you are going backpacking, but don't get stuck in a rut of only packing tatty old vests and shorts. Just because you can be casual doesn't mean you have to look like a scruff.


Two pairs of shoes, two cover-ups

Wear Converse or trainers for the plane and pack one nice pair of flat sandals and one pair of wedges. If you're going somewhere warm, take two light layers that can be worn together: a cashmere cardigan and a blazer, for instance. Then, if you leave or arrive on a chilly day, or if things get really unseasonable abroad, you can layer up.


Underpack

If you take something you don't wear, you will waste time packing it, hanging it at your destination, then repacking it, and probably having to iron it again when you get home. Leave it where it is.

 


Soft wide brim hat (example to the right)


All of our soft wide brim hats can be rolled up into your suitcase and then when you arrive at your destination they pop right up again back into shape.


A party dress

Never, ever go anywhere without a really nice dress and the right bra to wear with it. You never know who you might meet.
