Last spring the neck-ccessory du jour was a casually cool western bandana. It was spotted on runways, fashion bloggers, and real girls too. Worn fitted and knotted around the neck, so that the one of the four points is crisply centered, this accessible accent was seen layered over t-shirts and dresses, in an oversized variety for the off duty models on the go, and peeking out from underneath turtlenecks.
This fall, we’re channeling Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. Bye-bye, bandana. Pleasure to meet you, little silk neck scarf. These aren’t your grandmother’s silk neck scarves, though if you’ve happened to inherit one or two, you’re a step ahead. These are an updated way to forgo baubles and jewels and instead add an effortless pop of pattern to an otherwise sleek-to-the-point-of-snoozy outfit.
Go ahead, encircle that neck with an elegant little scarf. Leave as little or as much of the ends on display as you’d like, and pair your new favorite décolletage decoration with a fresh white button down, skinnies, and stilettos, or go more moto with a black leather bomber, matching black leather shoulder bag, and destroyed denim. This smart embellishment looks as innovative with a v-neck dress and pointed ballerina flats as your favorite slouchy grey sweatshirt.
