This post is in partnership with Fleur Sauvage.
Today’s partnership is really, really special, as I’m proud to introduce to you a beautiful new brand founded by a longtime follower and member of this community – Fleur Sauvage! I had the chance to test drive these beautiful new scarves while in England and am excited to share this collection of feminine must-have accessories with all of you!!
It all began in April 2022, when at the age of 40, Fleur Sauvage founder, Maria Confer was diagnosed with breast cancer. Over the following 8 months, Maria faced a double mastectomy, chemotherapy, and several rounds of surgeries. During her darkest days, she was gifted a gorgeous luxury scarf to wear during hair loss. That generous gift sparked joy by giving her the ability to feel beautiful and chic at a time when she felt anything but.

During her recovery Maria was inspired by her nine year old son to start drawing again. As her drawings emerged it became clear that what she was creating would translate beautifully into silk scarves. With a new mission in mind, Maria sought out the best sustainable silk printers, finding an incredible GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified factory in England where her 100% silk scarves are now made in small batches, with the highest attention to detail, like hand-rolled hems. With the focus on sustainability, every piece of packaging is either reusable or made from recycled and compostable materials and 10% of all profits are donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Fleur Savage’s gorgeous scarves are the perfect fall accessory as there are hundreds of ways to wear this wardrobe essential. The square scarves come in come in two sizes (50cm and 90cm) as well as twilly ribbons, and a range of designs from beautiful florals to sporty motifs so you have the perfect companion for every occasion.
The 90cm scarf is my favorite size to collect due to its versatility. From cinching the waist of a dress to tying back your hair, from an impromptu top to a stylish sling for a broken arm (made famous by Grace Kelly!) the 90cm scarf does it all. (I even have one framed on the wall of my dining room!) I have the Lily of the Valley and Holiday Ribbons designs which both sold out the moment Maria released them, so be sure to preorder them for the next delivery, or they also come in smaller 50cm versions if you just can’t wait! Read on for my favorite styling tips and how to wear the most feminine of accessories!
I love this style for pairing with fitted blazers, crew neck sweaters or button up shirts. Fold your scarf in half along the diagonal, center the point at the front of your chest, then loop the ends around your neck tying in the front. I like to wear with the point slightly off to the side.
The easiest way to wear a scarf. Fold your scarf in half along the diagonal, and tie the ends behind your neck, creating a big drape-y sling. Looks best over a button down with a popped collar and this season’s oversized blazers.

A casual look that works well under almost any jacket or blazer, I like this style to add a hint of color or pattern to a look. Fold your scarf in half diagonally, then fold the triangle back and forth like an accordion. Drape over your shoulders and around your neck so the edge falls in ruffly folds.
The Modern Ascot
This is a great way to add a little interest or pop of color to the neckline of your sweater. Fold your scarf on the diagonal then roll it into a 2” wide ribbon. Loop around your neck twice and tie. (Fit should be snug.) Arrange so it lays nicely under the neckline of your sweater.
Stubbs and Wootton Mules (20% off with code “FRIENDSOFSTACIE”)
Fold your scarf in half along the diagonal and roll it up before tying it around your waist. It’s a wonderful finishing touch to fit ‘n flare dresses, high waisted pants, or left fluttering from the belt loops of your trench coat. I love weaving it through this leather belt designed for a scarf for extra polish.

The Twilly Ribbon
This is such an easy way to to add a little color and interest to your bag and overall look. Tie your twilly ribbon in a loose knot around the handle of your bag, leaving about 4” free, then loop the ribbon around the handle as you go, ending with a second knot on the other side and another 4″ free.
There are so many ways to wear a silk scarf, these are just a few of my favorites! How do you wear your scarves? Would love to know in the comments below! xx
