How to Look Manly in a Scarf Like Orlando Bloom

I love Orlando Bloom to the bone. The first time I saw him was as ‘Legolas’, and being a ‘Lord of the Rings’ fan, I was immediately smitten with the character and the actor who fit the role perfectly. *cool*

For those who keep a watchful eye on him, you may notice how he often wears a scarf around his neck.

Some actually think he looks silly in it, especially when it does not go well with the outfit – case in point, the picture of him above with Miranda Kerr. But not many people know that he wears it more for function rather than fashion.

As a daredevil, Orlando fell off a roof (about three stories high) when he was young and they had to fix his back and put a steel rod in it. It was an accident that almost put him in a wheelchair, but thanks to God and science, he was able to walk again.

With that steel rod in his back, he is more sensitive to cold temperature; so to keep himself warm, he puts a scarf around his neck.

So although on certain occasions, the scarf may not be the best accessory for him to wear, he still looks handsome and beautiful as he is without it. Well, at least, to me he is.

On another note, let’s learn from Orlando. A scarf is a great accessory to use for keeping warm. In fact, it is a good alternative to the light sweater. And you don’t have to wear it all the time, only when you need to.

Besides, a good piece of scarf always gives your look an immediate upgrade. So it is always best to invest in a few pieces.
