Good scarves cost too much. I know this. And yet whenever I see another perfect, feather-light number with a just-exactly-right print—and then get a load of the price tag— I always manage to be just as disappointed as I was the very first time a pretty scarf let me down. I have never once, in the history of ever, been pleasantly surprised to find that the gorgeous, soft, perfect scarf I’d been eyeing cost less than I was expecting. Not once.
It shouldn’t have to be this way. And part of the the solution, I’m thinking, is to arrive at a place of peace with synthetic blends: done right, they don’t have to feel like you’ve wrapped a dense coat of dental floss around your neck. This polka dot and herringbone number from Loft is a happy thing to behold, and it gives any outfit you might choose to wear all the print it needs.
I am so excited to see that somebody over at Gap shares my enthusiasm for black and yellow.
There’s something very bold and 80s Betsey Johnson about the red, yellow and black palette of this French connection scarf, don’t you think?
Flowers and butterflies. But sophisticated.
“I like that one,” my hairdresser Sija just said when she glanced at my screen (I am in fact writing this as I get my hair done all pretty at the fabulous Damian West Salon). And I’m thinking I’d wear it exactly like she would: with a white tank, little jacket, green army pants and big hoop earrings. A nice little touch of sweetness to balance out all that rocker-chick badness.
Leopard bordered by red is so insanely classic and perfect that I had to include this even though I just showed you a leopard-print scarf two scarves ago.
