FRAAS Fall 2013 Collection

As the air turns crisp here in my corner of the Northeast I have been switching my wardrobe over to fall. Earlier this week I received a FRAAS scarf for review Lipton Publicity. Scarves are one of my absolute favorite accessories and in recent years they have really come into vogue. I thought I would give my readers a peek in to my scarf collection pictured below:

I actually have two drawers full of scarves and while I was taking this picture one thing struck me, I only have one fall/winter weight scarf in my collection. The majority of my scarves are a cotton blend or yarn. The reason? I don't care for the bulkiness of fall/winter scarves. When I received the FRAAS #060607 scarf for review I thought finally a fall/winter scarf that is not too bulky yet warm. It is a mixture of viscose and acrylic and really is super soft. This particular scarf is priced at $40. which is very reasonable for a high quality scarf. Adding to the value of this scarf even more is the fact that it is reversible. One side is solid red with small ornamentation and the reverse side has orange, red and cream stripes with subtle red polka dots.


FRAAS is a 130 year old company that is well noted for producing high quality and on trend men's and ladies scarves. Fraas is an international company with offices in New York, London, Tokyo, Paris, Berlin, Denmark, Italy, Hong Kong, Toronto, and Shanghai. FRAAS scarves are frequently featured in the media including the September 2013 edition of ELLE. FRAAS products are sold worldwide via specialty department stores and online retailers in addition to select products from their line available on fraas.com and Amazon.com. You can also order directly from the company by calling 212-575-0191.

The new fall 2013 FRAAS collection is priced at $26. - $100. and includes several designs with rich autumnal shades, pop colors and bold looks, and embellished and opulent looks. Whatever your fashion style is FRAAS is likely to have a scarf you will love!

I plan to style my FRAAS scarf a couple of different ways: wrapped inside my ivory wool JouJou coat:
I would also pair it with my Liz Claiborne skinny jeans and white cardigan sweater:

And for a night out I would style it with a cream sweater dress like this one from Rag & Bone:
