Typically scarves are associated with snowy weather and frigid temperatures; however, with the arrival of spring and summer approaching, the purpose of the scarf is transformed from an accessory that protects you from the elements to one that amps up your ensemble. When you’re looking for a scarf that simply is adding to your outfit, you can focus less on the warmth factor and more on the pattern or style!
This Fashionista sported a neutral Chan Luu scarf with her spring maxi for a lunch date. The scarf not only supports the feminine tone of the outfit but brings in another color to her ensemble, tying together the brown in her Tory Burch flats with the whole look. Chan Luu’s accessories and clothing are always so delicate, beautiful and detailed, and this scarf is no exception! The tassels at the bottom make for a chic, boho addition to the look. I always find maxi dresses to appear a little boho no matter the style or print, so this scarf really accentuates that quality of the dress. This scarf is also unique because it can be tied so many ways! The scarf can be worn how it is shown in the photo, but because of the cut of the scarf, it can also be worn in the style of a handkerchief scarf. The handkerchief scarf style has become very popular recently, and designers like Derek Lam and Louis Vuitton have paved the way.
A scarf is one of the easiest, most accommodating accessories to purchase because there are endless functions, textiles, styles and ways to tie them. Whether you want to sport a scarf as a head wrap on the beach, use a wider scarf for a pashmina or just rock an original look with a scarf, every Fashionista’s options are open!
