Not sure about the colonial reference, because the style is not just seen on women from former colonial nations.

Perhaps it is because women of a certain age experience hot flushes and need a scarf handy to cover up for sudden chills - a cardi being too homely and way too fussy to put on quickly.
Perhaps wearing it folded up in your hand or handbag is inconvenient when you need to quickly throw it on.
Perhaps wearing it draped behind your back and over your crooked elbows is too evening-y.
Perhaps hiding behind it like Linus Steph from Lux makes you look like an idiot and totally unprofessional.

I must admit (as a Dutchie of not quite a certain age) I've worn mine to daytime events and not-too-formal events (I'd wear a silk, thin, shiny one, not a patterned, woolly Pakistani/Nepali one) in this style, and it is a way to show off a beautiful design, add a dollop of colour to one's outfit and have the thing handy in an unfussy way. Plus: it's good for your posture (walk regally, otherwise the f'er falls off) and hides that inconvenient stain in one's blouse.

It seems that for Laurentien is also a wee bit of a Blanket  Blush

The women look to have a good rapport.
I don't mind Laurentien's scarf but the photos make me think of Laurentien selling Camilla curtain fabric.  Laugh bounce

BTW isn't around this time Laurentien and Constantijn would having their 12,5 years wedding anniversary? The were married on 17 (civil) and 19 (religious) May 2001.
A short calculation brings us 17/19 november as the 12,5 years date.

Do you celebrate half year anniversaries?  Yikes
Mind you I am jealous beyond words, since my hubby doesn't remember the annual occasion and has to be reminded forcefully on the more rounded ones occurring once every decade.  Cry

According to the traditions I am used to you celebrate the following anniversaries a bit bigger than your regular wedding anniversary. For example a party at which you invite family, friends, neighbours etc. Also in some parts of the Netherlands you will have a special arch at your house (which is also done on your wedding day). See pictures below.

12,5 years: Copper marriage (Koper huwelijk)
25 years: Silver marriage (Zilver huwelijk)
50 years: Gold marriage (Goud huwelijk)
60 years: Diamant marriage (Diamant huwelijk)
70 years: Platina marriage (Platina huwelijk)
75 years: Albaster marriage (Albast huwelijk)
80 years: Oak marriage (Eik huwelijk)

In recent years I also noticed multiple couples who celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary (Ruby marriage/Robijn huwelijk) with a bigger celebration.

I am not married despite the example of my parents (this year they had their 42th wedding anniversary).





Originally these arches were created (or nowadays rented) and put up by the neighbours of the celebrating couple.

Oh crap Princi!  I almost replied to you yesterday 'well, then it's time to get out the tissues and start folding the flowers for 'het groen' and here you are, posting these quaint traditional horror things!! Being a city girl I never knew of this tradition before moving to wonderful Apeldoorn a few years ago, and I was stupid enough to mention my wedding date to one of my neighbours of whom I know that she's willing, able and ready to make one of these for my 12.5 anniversary. Part of the tradition appartently also is that you're kicked out of the house while the neighbours erect the arch (the men, the women did the flowers), and you're allowed back in once it's up, and you're supposed to offer the neighbours drinks afterwards. Jenever, beer and advocaat are compulsory. Totally look forward to it!!!! Nerves

that way of wearing a scarf was from the 80s or 90s.  i think it looks totally out-of-fashion now.  lots of women then wore scarves that way.

also, camilla looks like she is getting too much work done to her face.

Camilla needs a new interior decorator. Badly. 
I'm wondering if this is the way that Granny decorated and Charles doesn't want to change anything. Thinking

I am raised in the surroundings of a village in a more rural area of the Netherlands. The arches and all around it was part of my upbringing/experiences Wink Smiley. You get used to them and all around it. Our family received their share of arches and was also part of making them for others. For example when one of my brothers married, our house, the house of the bride (as they both married from their parents home) and their new family house received an arch. Over time the arches get more modern in the making, so less irritation.

My parents were brought up in a time you still had the (strong) tradition of noaberschap (neighbourhelp). In which neighbours played an important part in happy and sad events by performing specific tasks. And indeed in some times they were rewarded with jenever Wink.

You are welcome. And a  big Star for you, because of trying to write/speak Dutch! Well done, only a small correction, 'vel' must be 'wel'. For your information the Dutch word 'vel' means skin.
