If you’re planning a trip to Italy (and I’m sure other countries in Europe) you need to cover your bare shoulders before entering a church. They do have paper ponchos for you, but they look pretty silly. This is when a scarf is a quick shoulder cover comes in handy.
And, I don’t know about you…but, I prefer to look elegant vs silly.
A square scarf folded along the diagonal, and knotted in front makes for a prefect shoulder cover.
Even though it’s a large scarf, it folds up quite small and hardly takes up any room in your bag!
