A few weeks before Mother’s Day and you are still looking for the best gift ideas… You want something feminine and precious, something exceptional which will make your mother feel special, something different from the traditional bottle of perfume or flower bouquet: a present she will keep forever and she will enjoy every day!
Treat your beloved Mom (or as a mother yourself, have you treated) with an ANNE TOURAINE Paris™ silk scarf, the perfect gift for this very special occasion! To make sure you find the right scarf, ask yourself a few questions (see below) and follow if necessary our tips. Then browse our collection of scarves until you come across the one that says "Mom"! ANNE TOURAINE Paris™ has scarves for every woman.
Our collections include:
1) WHAT IS / ARE YOUR MOTHER'S FAVORITE COLOR(S)? IS SHE MORE NEUTRAL SHADES OR BOLD COLORS?
Navy, turquoise, teal, red, pink, yellow, orange, black, brown, green: our scarves come in a large array of colors, from pastel to bold.
From pastel to bold: many colors (as featured here with our polka dot collection)
Pick a color she loves and which will perfectly complement her wardrobe staples.You can either go for a tone on tone scarf color or a contrasting scarf color. Among the many contrasting color combinations which exist, we suggest you pair green and blue, green and yellow, blue and pink, blue and yellow, brown and turquoise or teal, brown and pink, yellow and black, black and white, black and beige, red and white,
2) WHAT FITS HER SKIN TONE, HER HAIR COLOR, AND HER EYE COLOR BEST?
You, better than anyone else, know which color will match your Mom’s complexion, eyes, and hair. Most of the time, blue scarves and pastel shades are a safe choice for blond women. Green and brown look great on women with red hair. Brunettes should lean towards bold (vivid orange, neon pink, bright blue, red) or pastel colors. With grey hair, pretty much every scarf color will work!
Choose according to her skin complexion, her eye color and and her hair color
3) IS YOUR MOTHER MORE DRESSY OR CASUAL STYLE?
No question: if a classic square silk twill scarf or a large satin silk scarf can be worn in many different ways, it is also essential for dressy looks.

If so, a twill silk scarf will keep her neck warm in the winter (and will be delightful to wear in the summer as well...) and a cozy cashmere silk pashmina scarf will protect her shoulders from getting cold.If she is not sensitive to cold, then a light chiffon silk scarf is a great option.
