- Scarf dos and don’ts.
Definitely add fashionable, warm scarves for winter. After wear, untie, smooth and hang gently so the wrinkles can naturally relax. Never iron a scarf after wear – the heat can darken and set invisible soils and skin oils. Always wear a scarf with fur, leather and suede to prevent collar soiling from skin oils or makeup. When your scarf needs freshening, we suggest hand finishing to preserve the hand rolled hem or fragile fringe. […]

- Time change.
When Daylight Savings Time ends, winter’s right behind. Now’s the time to store away your warm weather clothes. It’s a good tradition and a great way to make closet space for the bulkier winter clothes. Just don’t add moth balls to your stored garments — instead use cedar chips or dried lavender. Moth balls contain naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene, petroleum-based chemicals that can cause eye and skin irritation and definitely are not safe around children. Skip the moth balls but be sure to clean everything thoroughly before storing—stains and yellowing can develop over time on garments that aren’t 100% clean. […]

- Cashmere deluxe
While still a splurge, cashmere’s more affordable than ever. But it’s still an investment worth protecting. Wait for deodorant to dry before putting on your sweater or it can build up and create a stain. Don’t wear the same garment more than once a week. Remove wrinkles by ironing on low, inside out. And please, clean your cashmere before storing (folded in tissue) to avoid moth damage. […]
