If you thought that neckwear was just for the chilly months, think again! Take a page from the French book of fashion and adapt the scarf trend for the spring and summer months by trading wool for silk. As a fan of all things Parisian and nautical, I must say I use any excuse to sport a silk scarf, or as my friends call it every time I wear one, an ascot. Lucky for me, I have wracked up quite a collection from shopping my mom’s closet and vintage stores.
Here is one of my favorites I picked up from Le Placard de ma Mère (French for my mother’s closet). While it’s merely black and white, the contrast between the black background and the white flowers imprinted throughout make quite a statement, especially when paired with a plain black maxi dress like this one. This black maxi may be simple, but its floor length adds an air of drama to a daily look. Accent the ensemble with some gold hoop earrings and a color-blocked, oversized bag and you’ll be ready for the French Riviera—or in my case, brunching in LA. I highly recommend checking out The Hart and the Hunter, an eclectic eatery with blue-tiled walls, light leather seats with gingham pillows, and historical portraits. My friend, Rebecca and I also stopped by Alfred Tea Room for round two of caffeine. The best part? I was so comfortable in my dress that I practically felt like I wearing a nightgown. The key to polishing this look was truly the scarf. I highly recommend shopping your mother or grandma’s closet for one and adding it to a simple garment to elevate your look.
