Recently I’ve been obsessing over scarves shown in fall 2016 runway trends, overlapping fall/summer trends. I’ve noticed an increase in chokers and skinny scarves being used, bringing Christian Dior spring 2016 runway show to the lively streets of Paris. Whether it be your trendy fashion blogger, celeb, chic tourist or effortless Parisian, they all have one thing in common, knowing how to style those scarves all season long.
After returning from India this past winter, I brought with me three silk scarves, because how could I possibly pass up on an opportunity like that? Each scarf individually radiated such vibrant unique colors. I decided to hop on the choker trend but wanted something interchangeable. I love accessories, but knowing myself, they will get worn once and never see the light of the day again. I try to think as a minimalist—you don’t need much to stand out, at least that’s what I’ve learned from Parisians. All you need is confidence and one or two bold statement items. So, without having to pile up on accessories, I now have a three-in-one scarf that can be used throughout the season.
Summer has just begun in this beautiful city; warm yet not warm enough to strip down to a bikini. My style being every simple, I chose to pair my cozy t-shirt dress (comfort is essential) with a summer colored scarf and ’70s looking suede boots, taking the look to another level, thus making it stand out from the rest of the crowd.
