Feeling preppy and experiencing a not so freezing day in Ithaca? Toss on a plaid scarf. When the weather allows you to hang up your down jacket and ski hats (meaning it went from zero to 20 degrees), have fun with it and channel your inner New England, boarding school chic.
This week’s Fashionista was spotted utilizing a neutral earth toned palette, from black riding boots, to an evergreen vest and gold and brown jewelry. To top it all off, she wrapped herself in a classic Burberry scarf. Instead of adding multiple layered necklaces or an exceptionally flashy shirt, a scarf makes a noticeable statement while keeping you safe from the winter winds. Score! Prints that are similar to plaids are not solely used for flannels and country themed events. Simple plaid and checkered printed scarves by Eddie Bauer and L.L.Bean could not possibly be more simplistically collegiate.
If plaid and anything resembling it has never been your style, follow in our Fashionista’s footsteps! Utilizing a neutral outfit such as a plain white long sleeve and black jeans, any kind of printed scarf is bound to stand out. Even a black long sleeve and plain dark blue jeans would allow for an all-American feel and a patterned multicolor scarf would add a trendy edge.
Spotted: Burberry scarves are a staple in each collection the British brand has released. A trademark alongside their trench coats, the red, black, white and camel brown print is unmistakable. Although scarves are more common throughout their fall/winter lines, soft floral color and understated print scarves were Burberry spring essentials.
