The second month of the new year is coming to a close. This means one day closer to the end of the semester and a countdown to spring break. But what I’m really anticipating is warm weather to wear all my new purchases for spring. I’m growing impatient since I’ve been shopping since December for spring. It’s never to early to shop ahead, Fashionistas/os! I’m especially excited to wear my light weight printed scarves. The weather is slowly getting a little warmer so I’m ready to get rid of my bulky knit scarves for something more airy and free.
This Fashionista was wearing a light eye-catching printed scarf, so I naturally gravitated to seeing her look up close. Layering is ideal for the winter and Savannah’s bipolar weather, so as the temperature changes all you have to do is pull back. This Fashionista wore a blue striped button-down over a T-shirt and then topped it off with a printed scarf. On the bottom she is wearing jean shorts with black tights and black booties. This look has accents of color and a feel of spring with the printed scarf. Placing a print or floral scarf on top of strips is one of the best combinations. I could easily see this Fashionista peeling away the booties and tights in exchange for some strappy sandals for a nice spring day.
Scarves this season have been getting a new life and playing a completely different role during the spring and summer months. Marc Jacobs this season demonstrated a magnitude of ways to make scarves more wearable on his spring runways. He showcased scarves tied on the head or around the waist over a dress. Of course, he also showed the traditional way of around the neck, and some models even combined all three ways. A scarf for spring is a lightweight and airy accessory that easily gives your look a new dimension. Pattern and print mixing takes more of a subtle approach with the addition of a scarf.
Spotted: Altuzarra spring 2013 collection also featured a fresh take on scarves by featuring them in unconventional ways on the body.
