The flowers start blooming, the sun shines brighter and the days get longer. The start of summer is always exciting, but it calls for a wardrobe overhaul: we must trade in our skinnies for skirts and our heavy sweaters for lighter shirts. There are some accessories that can survive the transition from the colder months to the warmer ones, including scarves. While we may shed our jackets early, the beginning of summer may still be a bit chilly. A thin, vibrant scarf is the perfect solution to keeping up with summer’s bright colors and can be worn even when the days get hotter.
This Fashionista makes the transition of seasons look effortless by pairing this light pink scarf with a short sleeve peasant top and maxi skirt. She chose a short pom-pom scarf to put over her shirt, which makes her outfit more playful and girly. She also wore a simple necklace under the scarf, showing that other cute accessories do not have to be sacrificed for the scarf trend. By pairing her outfit with a pair of gray Converse All-Stars, a simple turquoise ring and silver bangle bracelet, this Fashionista radiates a cool, casual vibe.
How to: Experiment with scarves in different colors and patterns to brighten up your outfit. Summer is the perfect time to break out those floral infinity scarves. Try buying one that is made of cotton, so it does not make you hot. As the days get warmer, scarves can also be used for other purposes. Aside from headscarves, you could also try braiding a scarf into your hair. Chiffon scarves, like this one by Kate Moss for Topshop, are perfect for this because they are thin and lightweight.
