It's A Wrap...

Scarves have been a trend for the past several seasons. Breezy fabrics wrapped several times around the necks of stylish women from LA to NYC took over where pashminas left off. This summer, we saw innovative adaptations of this trend on the streets. Scarves add interest and color to a simple outfit and, most importantly, warmth during the blustery days to come. J. Crew offers a long, ombre wool version which can be wrapped several times and knotted. It comes in deep autumn colors, as well as jewel tones. The Gap has Patrick Robinson designs in soft, fringed plaids. Tied once behind the neck, the pattern falls into a V, filling in the neckline of a long cardigan or fitted jacket. Madewell stocks a jersey scarf wide enough to double as a wrap on a cool, cross country flight. The French have always used scarves to extend their wardrobes. With the uncertain economy, a scarf is a small investment paying big dividends in personal style.
