Georgia May Jagger And Cressida Bonas Bring Back The 'Gap Yah' Scarf

OK, let's have a sidebar about a scarf. Please. It's a particular kind of scarf, not a woolly scarf nor an 'I've just arrived in LAX' kind-of scarf. It's a Gap Yaah scarf and they seem to be very popular with celeb royalty. It's a known fact that Cressida Bonas and Georgia May Jagger are both hot stuff. Right? Reasons being Cressida's dungarees at Glastonbury (this combined with the fact that she is so infrequently papped that we just have to keep referring back to THAT look) plus the impressive royal associations (hello princess to be!). Then there's Georgia May, aka: rock royalty, who is the model daughter of legend Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall. Need we say more? These girls' style credentials are through the roof so it's little wonder we're now turning our attentions to the way they're wearing their scarves this winter. Part Kings Road, part hippy, slightly grubby student - it's what you'd expect from a posh girl on her travels. Mixed with their own luxe looks, floaty locks and top-notch lifestyle, CB and GMJ give 'Trustafarian' a whole new edge. So do you want to work the Gap Yaah scarf? Here's how...

1. Side-knot

There's no slouchy, loose wrapping going on here see Cressida for further info - it's all about a small, tight knot to the side either round the neck OR the waist - just make sure it's not centred.

2. The faded hippy print

Cressida's has a super boho vibe with a faded print - teamed with a scrunchy, layers of jewellery and printed slouchy trousers for a retro trip.

3. Galaxy Print

Georgia went for a stardust print - lending a dandyish David Bowie edge to her tailored look

4. The good cause

Prince Harry's beau is faithfully flaunting his wares (10 girlfriend points, Cressida) - her studenty-looking scarf raises money for his charity Sentebale

Whatever your cause, be it charitable or sartorial, make sure you add a devil-may-care flick of the hair. It's all about how you carry it. Here are some of our favourites for inspiration...
