I’ve been on a huge scarf kick lately. This may seem counterintuitive as the weather is gradually warming up, and scarves tend to be cooler-weather accessories. However, I don’t see it that way. Spring and summer scarves are quite a brilliant concept, and I’m thrilled that there are so many lightweight options out there to choose from.
I posted this pic on my Facebook page last week (you should like me!). It’s a scarf I picked up at BellJar in San Francisco. (They have an online store, too.) I’ve been wearing it with basically everything I own.
When deciding on a spring/summer scarf, first make sure it’s an appropriate fabric. My favorites are the super duper ultra lightweight gauzy cottons. As far as colors and patterns, you can’t go wrong with a bold color like the ones above. This can offer a fun pop to a casual weekend look. Just treat it like you would a statement necklace and make it part of the outfit.
Or, you can have some fun with patterns. This is another one of Karen’s purchases from JCPenney. Because the polka dots are in neutral colors, it will go with just about anything. (This is no longer on their site, but here’s a similar style.)
