Silk Scarves: A Year Round Accessory

Yesterday we were reading the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar and came across a great piece about wearing silk scarves year round. We already love accessorizing with scarves – they’re great tied to a handbag, worn knotted around the neck in the summer, or in the hair as a headband or turban, so we were thrilled to read that we can bring them into fall and winter too! Below is the image from Harper’s Bazaar, and some cold weather silk scarf looks that we put together:


Harper’s Bazaar September 2012

Coat- New York & Co. sz 18 $48

Graphic Scarf- Worth $7

Pair a bright coat with a graphic scarf for fun cold weather look. We draped the scarf around the neck and pulled one end to the front for an easy-going yet chic way to show off the print.

Cream Coat- Tulle sz M/L $40

Paisley Scarf- Talbots $12

For a more classic look, we paired a beige and maroon toned scarf with a cream wool coat. Add some tights and brown riding boots, and you could step right out of a Ralph Lauren ad đŸ™‚

Faux Fur Leopard Coat- Moda sz XS $60

Striped Scarf- Vera $7

If you’re like us, you can’t wait to break out your faux leopard coat for fall (Don’t have one, you say?! We have a few… đŸ˜‰ ). Pair it with a bright striped scarf that pops against the neutrals of the animal print for an eye catching and funky look.

How will you wear your silk scarves into fall?
