ALL IN THE DETAILS: Particular Plaid

When the words “Zara scarf” come out of a Fashionista’s mouth, most of us can pin point the exact scarf in our minds. We envision the beautiful plaid blanket scarf that acts as a key piece to any cold weather attire. Unfortunately, as most of us know, it has been sold out for months. Even Target had a look alike for a few months, but fortunately for the readers, I have some exciting news. The plaid blanket scarf is back! There are few left, but they are back in stock with a subtle change in color scheme.

The slight color change strikes me as a season change. The new color is not as vibrant, mirroring the gloomy winter season. Not to worry! You can just as easily mimic this Fashionista’s military style with the new version of the scarf. Along with the vibrant plaid, this Fashionista dresses up her minimalistic style with several accessories. She utilizes the versatility of the blush kate spade new york bag by pairing it with gold arm candy and her military green J.Crew booties. This Fashionista is very mindful of color and how to balance the vibrancy of the scarf with her other accessories and outerwear. When using an oversized accessory as your statement piece, tone down the various colors you use for your ensemble. This will draw the eye to the key piece, keeping it from having too much going on at once.

How To: Have you been dying to get your Fashionista hands on the Zara blanket scarf? Now is your chance! You can imitate this Fashionista’s look with a minimalistic base: simple dark denim and a classic white T-shirt, with a military jacket draped over top. Be conservative with your choice of additional accessories. Keep the colors basic, so they do not overpower the key accessory: this very particular plaid.
