In the same way that the necktie dominated the professional world as a sign of power and importance. The silk scarf has become a way in which women are able to display their personalities and assert their dominance in the modern day professional world.
International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde is one of the female executives who has made the silk scarf become so much more than an accessory. With luxury brands increasing their focus on the creation of scarves, it is no wonder that the accessory has become an item of prestige. The scarf not only shows that the person wearing it pays great attention to detail, but it also shows the creativity of that person by the versatility in which the accessory can be worn.
Donna Loveday, co-curator of the exhibition Women Fashion Power at the Design Museum in London says that many women in male dominated industries, like politics and economics, wear bright scarves to stand out in the room and make sure that they are seen and heard. The Power Scarf is a way in which women have chosen not to blend into their work environment. Thus, they do not have to reject their femininity to achieve success.
