Are silk scarves having a moment?
Yes, though there is more to this trend than meets the eye. Beyond wearing scarves around necks and heads, scarf shapes and prints have infiltrated everything from jackets to skirts and dresses. At the last Fall shows, designers including Richard Quinn, Martine Serre and Faustine Steinmetz offered tops, dresses and skirts that appeared to be stitched, spliced and knotted from multiple scarves. To adopt the trend, look for prints that take their lead from scarves, say with solid borders around floral prints: Zara’s shirtdress (zara.com.au), Preen Line’s asymmetric midi dress (net-a-porter.com), Rianna Nina’s belted jackets, Diane Von Furstenberg’s halter dress, Burberry’s panelled blouse and Balenciaga’s twist-front dress (matchesfashion.com). Gucci, meanwhile, reinterprets its famous Flora print in this ensemble (pictured, jacket $2095, pants $1580, gucci.com). Otherwise, just tie one on.
