The ‘Grandma scarf’ is winter’s must-have accessory

This fashion trend might have been all the rage in your grandma's day - but is this generation ready for the retro hit?


Tying your headscarf under your chin à la The Queen could be the chicest move you make this winter. Don’t believe us? Then use the AW21 catwalks in London, Paris and Milan as your point of reference. They were practically awash with the nostalgic look with Dior, Max Mara and Roksanda all sending headscarf-clad models stomping down the runway.

There are two ways to achieve this look: either tie your scarf under your jaw babushka-style or knot it neatly at the back in the manner of Grace Kelly. And whether you want to protect your hairstyle from bracing British winds or just need to inject some colour into your outfit, there are several good reasons to get on board with this retro trend. Just ask Tracee Ellis Ross, Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky, who’ve all been spotted sporting their own version of this fashion throw-back.
