ACCESSORIES REPORT: Scarfing Down the Mustard

Accessories Report

Two things trending this fall are rich colours and animal motifs. Clearly I had to stop this Fashionista to document her trendy style. 

With the break of fall, Canada gets colder and we naturally start to gravitate to dark colours.  It was a relief when I saw this Fashionista who stood out to me when her mustard yellow scarf caught my eye amidst the darkness of what we all call our fall wardrobe. Decked out in riding boots and a cute blue trench, she looked like the true student but her scarf, my friends, reminded me of how easily we can mesh style and function. This Fashionista is wearing a printed silk top from Zara and even though it is not an accessory, I had to make a note of it in case you were interested. Now, on to the scarf. 

Colours like mustard, the famous “ox-blood” red, deep purples, blues and emerald greens are all the rave this season. For some of us who are not willing or able to splurge on a trend, scarves are here to save us. Scarves are a great way to add colour to an outfit and in a season like this, it is that kind of accessory that pulls an outfit together. The bonus is, there are so many out there that you will have absolutely no trouble finding one you love within your student budget. 

H&M is my go-to for affordable and stylish scarves. If you want something similar to the one this Fashionista is wearing, it is available with a fringe detail. Tube scarves are also a great alternative if you don’t like to see the ends of your scarves.

Spotted: On the runway in Milan, scarves were the focus in different shapes, sizes and colours for fall/winter 2012-2013.
