It’s that time of year again, Fashionistas. I know that many of us have been waiting and anticipating the start of the beloved season of autumn because with this season comes an assortment of magical things such as that perfect chill in the air, the changing of leaves and, of course, pumpkin-flavored everything. (Don’t even try to tell me that you don’t love pumpkin spice lattes. I do not have time for lies.)
Personally, I have always felt that the most wonderful thing about fall (yes, even more wonderful than pumpkin spice lattes) is the fact that it demands a shift everyone’s wardrobe. Fall is a time to reinvent oneself, to try out new things and incorporate a few different and interesting pieces into one’s closet. As any Fashionista knows, Candy Pratts Price said it best in The September Issue with her famous line, “September is the January in fashion.”
With this in mind, why not step up your accessory game with a floral scarf? As soon as I spotted this Fashionista, I first noticed how stunning her scarf was, and I loved that she chose to play with a floral pattern despite the fact that fall is just around the corner. The “I only wear bold colors and florals during the summer” mentality is definitely something that many of us are susceptible to, but like I previously stated, now is the time to try something that goes against the grain. Go ahead and take a bit of inspiration from this Fashionista while you’re at it. She wore her fun and flowery scarf with a navy dress and brown oxfords, so even though she used a strong floral in her standout accessory, her entire look was still beyond appropriate for this time of year.
If you’re ready to adorn your neck with a floral for fall, try out this scarf from Forever 21 for starters. You could also experiment with an even brighter pop of color by going with a scarf that has some red in it, like this one from ASOS; however, if you’re someone like me who always manages to stay true to her muted colors no matter how hard she tries to go for a piece that stands out, this blue and white snood from Topshop is more than likely to be ideal.
So, Fashionistas, this fall I encourage you to change with the seasons, whether that change be in your attitude, your inspiration or your entire wardrobe, it won’t hurt to start with a scarf!
