Now is the time of year when dressing can get a little tricky. Fall is definitely in the air, but not officially-so just yet. There are a few 80° days scattered here and there, but the nights are decidedly cooler. Your summer dresses are no longer enough, but it’s really not time to haul out the heavy wool.
My typical answer is to add a scarf. I have an entire drawer of scarves; it’s one of my go-to’s. Nothing too heavy (serious cableknit need not apply), but something to keep the chill at bay. More is king when it comes to scarves; several folds of fabric looks much better than a scrawny loop around your neck like a limp shoestring.
I surfed Nordstrom to find a few of my favorites:
1. Lulla Collection by Bindya Gwen scarf ($28)
2. Nordstrom cashmere blend Ice scarf ($88)
3. Burberry Giant Check cashmere scarf ($375)
4. Jessica Simpson Ombré Animal Print scarf ($38)
5. Nordstrom Dip Dye Border Tissue wrap ($98)
Add these beauties to everything. Seriously, everything.
An obvious choice is a scarf over a tee. One of my favorite outfits is a white t-shirt, skinnies and a bright scarf. It’s perfect; it puts the most interesting aspect of the outfit right up next to your face. I also love it with a lightweight turtleneck, or with a tank top and blazer. Want to jazz up that leather jacket? Scarf it.
And you know that strapless sundress you should put away for the year? Grab a cardigan and a scarf and you can rock it for a few more months (unless it’s very summer-themed, like a pineapple print or neon yellow).
Tell me– are scarves your thing?
