It is of course not necessary for you to get designer scarves, that would be the last thing I would buy that is a designer one, as there are so many scarves in most of the clothing/accessory stores that are so much cheaper! But of course, you pay for what you get, in terms of the quality, as this skull scarf is made from chiffon which is made from cotton, silk or synthetic fibres. Chiffons are smoother and more lustrous than other fabrics in general.
Because of the simplicity of the scarf, there are almost unlimited ways to wear a scarf, you just need to be creative and think out of the box! Here are videos of ways to wear a scarf:
