I am a firm believer that given the right accessory, an outfit can be transformed from something dull to something deviously divine. One of my go-to accessories is in fact scarves. I have an extensive collection comprised of about 20 pieces. Scarves are a great investment and are a practical item especially during those cold, winter months. When it’s a little breezy out, I like to pair a knitted scarf with a nice skirt and knee-high boots. This Fashionista is a perfect representation of that as she rocks an outfit well suited for spring.
This year I have been incredibly attracted to infinity scarves. They create a nice layering affect while, at the same time, keeping you bundled up. This Fashionista certainly got the idea, wearing a mustard infinity scarf that can be worn throughout the autumn, winter and spring months. Paired with a chestnut corduroy skirt, brown boots, black tights and a cardigan, this Fashionista disproves the long held myth that you can’t wear brown with black — she makes this color combo look great!
As the end of the season approaches, you are sure to find some amazing knitted scarves for sale. Some scarves can even be worn into the summer. Thinner and sometimes shear ones, like this one from American Eagle Outfitters comes in a lighter cotton material and can help to bring some color or texture to a look. For the spring, the material can be a little heavier. This classic loop scarf from LOFT emits a refined image that is great for spring. Cable knit scarves work best for winter and fall. Check out this one from Sears; it reminds me of the collection spotted below. There’s a scarf for every season and the infinity scarf works well for each.
Spotted: One of my favorite collections this fall 2012 season came from A.F. Vandervorst. This collection featured knitted scarves in such an exceptional way. I was very impressed by this collection and the allusions the garments created. In some looks it appears as if the models are facing away from the camera — an interesting image. Words cannot express how much I adore this collection; it’s certainly a must-see. Here’s one of my favorite looks from this collection.
