It may not be 85 degrees anymore, but it’s not yet freezing either. And while the inconsistent temperatures may instigate a fairly confusing time in our fashion lives, this transitional weather is the perfect excuse to allow your accessories to steal the show.
This Fashionisto takes full advantage of the mighty powers of the infinity scarf to give his casual ensemble some serious oomph. And what makes the infinity scarf so magical, you might ask? It’s a no-fuss scarf. Loop it around your neck once, twice, three times; and call it a day. It’s infinitely connected, so it won’t come untangled. Infinity scarves are an added layer of warmth. And most importantly, they come in all sizes, fabrics and prints, so you can have one to go with almost every outfit.
Infinity scarves are even fashion-celebrity endorsed. Dries van Noten rocked one himself in his fall 2013 show. Jude Law makes the infinity scarf look better than the beanie. Moral of the story, the infinity scarf is a look that all Fashionistos can work.
This Fashionisto turns his basic white T-shirt and cuffed short combo up a notch with a neutral printed infinity scarf, gray loafers and a printed backpack. His neutral color palette is refreshing in a season of so much color, but still feels like fall with the brown accents of his accessories. And while lugging around a backpack may not be a choice when you’re headed to class, make a statement out of it. This amazing camo printed Hershel pack gives every outfit some attitude, from a jean shirt to gym shorts. For the finishing touches on this look, opt for lace-less loafers, like this Fashionisto, or a suede pair, to dress things up a bit.
Hint: Infinity scarves can get a little claustrophobic wrapped so tightly around the neck. If this is an issue, opt for a longer scarf, and layer the pieces at two different lengths — one longer and one shorter. Or, go for a shorter scarf and don’t wrap it at all. Any way you rock it, you’ll be wrapped for good.
