Spring Scarves

I remember travelling to Italy about 4 years ago…we were struck by a very new trend: wearing scarves….in the heat of summer! Scott thought i was crazy, but i brought scarves home for my friends and families and told them this was the “European” thing. I fell in love with the trend…though i doubt it’s longevitiy in the fashion scene allows it to be called a trend any longer. It’s a mainstay…scarves year round. And though i love the warm, chunky varieties that we’ve been wearing these winter months, i always pause and let a contented sigh escape when i see the brightly colored, lighter versions arriving for spring.

Here are some of my favorites (and shhhh…Scott doesn’t need to know that 2 of these made their way into my closet this week… i couldn’t resist!!)

You've seen us tweet about these! Joe Fresh at the Real Canadian Superstore. $14

Neon Stripe Scarf~~the Gap $29.95 The Green stripe is truly neon and looks fabulous over a crisp white tee!


Chrysanthemum Sprigs Scarf~~ Anthropologie $58 Shades of green would look great with denim

Microspun stripe scarf~~ J Crew $33.50 I LOVE this scarf..made from jersey cotton, it acts as wrap as well! Perfect for travelling...keep it in your carry-on for use on a flight or a cool evening! Comes in a variety of colors..

This last scarf is a splurge but serves double duty…wear it as is, or as a sleeveless wrap!

Diane von Furstenberg "Hanover" Pink Landscape Scarf ~~ Nordstrom $204.38 CDN ...Love the brilliant hues in a colorblocked pattern!

Shown in the Linescape Green...belted and worn as a wrap..love it!!

Pair these scarves with some of your wardrobe basics: a neutral sweater, a crisp white tshirt, a pair of skinny jeans, your favorite ballet flats and you’re ready for Spring to blossom!
