If you had to choose a version of this scarf to wear, which one would you prefer, the orange or teal? I can’t make up my mind? What makes you decided on the colours you wear? Do you decide with your head or follow your hart?
I have previously on this journal declared my love for orange in all shades and forms you can ready about this here My love for orange is an on going affair yet my relationship with the camel coat has yet blossom. I see stylish women wear this item every season. There is rarely a season where a variation of the camel coat is excluded from the catwalk and collections around the world. Yet on me, this colour and style somehow looks a bit dull. I am dying to join the camel coat community yet I have come to the conclusion that the only way for me to be able to join this club will be if I come armed with an orange scarf to go with the camel coat, and a Mac neon orange lipstick. My orange fish & chips print scarf was coloured with this particular job in mind, to keep the camel coat company, or perhaps give yours a new lease of life? What do you think?Mission accomplished?
I am jet to find the camel coat of my dreams, but will keep searching.

A possible colour match for my teal fish & chips print scarf above would be any item of clothing in tobacco, dark bottle green or pale blue and dusty mint. Dark blue denim, navy and black would work too. Perhaps a somehow easier colour story to wear than the orange? When deciding if I favour the orange or teal version of this scarf I have to admit I can’t make my mind up if I love orange as much as I think or if in everyday busy life the teal colour story would be easier.
So far a lot of early enthusiasm for the orange colour way has been shown amongst my creative friends and family however I have got a sneaky feeling that the teal colour way is going to be a slow burner, a bit like the story of the rabbit and the tortoise. As a designer this always happens to me. When designing a collection I instantly make a mental note of the scarves I think I would like to wear. It is always the boldest and most colourful ones, then when I have a second look when the collection arrives I choose totally different. Strange, I know.
