Scarves these days are so versatile that is can be hard to know how to style them. Recently, several new men’s women’s and unisex scarves have arrived as part of our Autumn/Winter 2014 launch, and now you can find out how to style these lovely designs…
Point it Out
Those who want to add a little edge to their outfit will definitely love this dogtooth print square scarf! Simply fold the square scarf in half to create a triangle, and wrap each end around your neck to achieve 3 pointed ends at the front.
We love traditional tassle scarves, and we have several lovely patterns and knits available to choose from. Why not try the striped woolly cable knit scarf to begin with?
Cosy up in Faux Fur
If you want soft and luxurious texture, bring out this faux fur scarf in a rich berry colour. Loop it around your neck and secure it with the Velcro fastening to create a ‘V’ shape at the front.
Simplicity is Key
Eternity scarves and neck warmers are the best way to achieve instant cosiness, and they are the easiest styles to wear. Team up with a matching knit jumper for the ultimate wintery look.

As we transition from a glorious summer to a cooler season, winter accessories are all we can think about! The Dents Autumn/Winter collection was recently launched online, but here is a glimpse of what’s on offer…
Ladies’ gloves have become much bolder this season, with designs including animal prints and faux fur cuffs. Joining them in the women’s collection are a range of stunning handbags, scarves and winter warmers, ready for when the weather turns really chilly.

We recently took on university student Katherine McDougall for a month’s worth of photography experience here at Dents HQ. Having just finished her first year of Photography at Falmouth University, this opportunity was a great way to spend her summer break.

Here’s a Q&A with Katherine…
What have you been up to?
I have mostly been photographing the extensive collection of gloves and artifacts from the Dents Museum, and then editing the images, ready for documentation. Several images needed to be taken for each glove, to record the detailing and labeling. I also helped take images of products for the Dents website.
What have you learnt?
I’ve learnt about the company and lots about product photography. My time here has helped me gain a futher understanding of compositions and editing, which I can take into future jobs.
Favourite part of your experience here at Dents?
The best part has been learning about product photography. I also enjoyed gaining experience in working for a company, which will help my career.
Any unusual pieces in the museum glove collection?
My favourite pieces were the miniature gloves from the Victorian era, which were used to show craftsmanship at such a small scale.
Now that we’re well and truly into summer, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate special occasions in the lovely weather! And with your smart outfit, you’ll be needing some smart accessories too…
For a Graduation
Congratulations to all those who have finished their degrees! For those who are celebrating in style, why not try a Dents clutch bag to make the day extra special? This satin east west clutch bag has a beautiful metal fretwork design, and looks best when worn with a navy dress and gold jewellery to match.
For a Wedding Guest
Metallics are a popular trend at the moment, and silver makes a lovely colour for wedding guests. This beautiful large taffeta body clutch bag comes with a handy chain strap to take you through the day, and is lined with matching satin. Even the bride will be envious!
For a Christening
Christenings often mean wearing pale colours – after all, they’ll brighten up the happy day! For the gents, a beige pair of plain braces will nicely accompany your suit, whereas ladies will adore this large brim hat with a detachable bow. Not only will it will protect you from the sun, you’ll look great in photographs!
What special occasions will you be attending this summer?
The festival is on the huge scale, with some of the biggest acts in the arts
Get your wellies on and the sun cream out – Glastonbury Festival is starting tomorrow! We’re definitely looking forward to hearing about what goes on in one of the biggest events of the season, which is happening just 22 miles from Dents HQ. And this year is sure to be a good one, with a line up including Dolly Parton, Lily Allen and Elbow.
Hopefully you’ll avoid the bad weather and experience some sun!
Festivals are notorious for their changeable weather – and of course, mud!Be prepared with these essential festival survival kit ideas… or pop into the Dents Factory Shop along the way if you’re local to us!
Earlier this year it was announced that the hit ITV drama Mr Selfridge will return to our screens for a third series! The show, which centres around store owner Harry Selfridge during the early years of his department store Selfridges & Co., has proven to be a popular period drama.
As you may know, Dents gloves have made a few appearances in the show during the last two series. Our red women’s silk lined leather glove was notably featured back in series one (read more here), and the latest series included several characters wearing our designs, as you will see here.
The gorgeous red glove that character Agnes Towler featured in the first series
We’re already excited about Mr Selfridge’s return, especially after reading press articles on future storylines and behind the scenes images. Could Dents feature again in the next series? We can’t wait to find out!

Between 17th – 21st June 2014, the annual Royal Ascot will be held in the small town of Ascot in Berkshire. The event dates way back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne, and it has become tradition for the races to be opened everyday by the Royal Procession, during which the Queen and her guests arrive in a horse drawn landaus.
Will you catch a glimpse of the Queen?
In celebration of this exciting event, we’re offering you a free pair of fabric gloves (of your choice) when you purchase any handbag online (for a limited time only). Whether you’re watching from the stands or on your TV, don’t forget to dress up in your occasion wear…
On Friday, the Dents museum was visited by a very interesting group of people…
Roaring into HQ on several Harley Davidsons and one trike, motorbike group The Hogsback Chapter arrived to learn about the history of gloves!
The Hogsback Chapter regularly go to events and rides throughout the year. Coming all the way from Surrey, the group decided to visit the museum as part of their ‘Wicked Wiltshire Weekend’. Events organiser Ruth – who originates from Wiltshire – had heard about the museum tour in a Daily Mail article, and thought it was worth a look!
