As winter comes to an end, Easter candies, floral skirts and photos of bikini-clad schoolmates on Panamanian sands begin to infest our newsfeeds. This can only mean one thing: spring has almost sprung. For many Fashionistas and Fashionistos, that means packing away their winter wardrobes and digging out their warm weather ensembles. However, the infinity scarf happens to be an accessory that refuses to be locked up for the upcoming months.
This week’s Fashionista sported this piece on a gorgeous coming of spring afternoon as the trees and other flora of Emory’s campus were regaining their vivid colors. What stood out the most was the detailing of her scarf, which she proudly revealed was her own work. Here is an alternative to this homemade wonder.
One thing to keep in mind is how her scarf is paired with the rest of her outfit. By wearing this cable knit sweater, her infinity does not compete for attention with her clothing. Instead, it stands out against the deep shade of her sweater, which is especially important when working with an intricate handmade scarf.
The infinity scarf can be paired with a casual outfit, but one like this can add a more sophisticated touch. This may be important with upcoming internship interviews that take place during the spring. Whichever look you are aiming for, an infinity scarf can be paired with the outfit of your choosing. Most importantly, this Fashionista proves that these scarves will be permanent residents in our wardrobes across the seasons.
