WEAR A SCARF IN THE SUMMER
I like scarves even when it’s not cold. Of course I’m not talking about sweltering July; I mean May or June when there’s a pleasant breeze—and I’m not talking about heavy wools either, I mean light materials like cotton, silk, and thin cashmere. Adding a light and colorful scarf gives you the perfect finishing touch, so on any windy summer day, feel free to grab a scarf and wrap it around your neck with your suit or tweed sports jacket.
WAYS TO WEAR A SUMMER SCARF
LOOPED — Thinner, lighter material allows for more elaborate wrapping.
KNOTTED — Instead of flinging it loosely around your neck, wear your scarf like a tie.
ROLLED — Yes, you can pull off a bandana if you treat it as a neckerchief.
PATTERNED — The trick to making loud, busy prints work is to keep the rest of your outfit simple and subdued.
CUSTOMIZED — Personalize your scarf with interesting adornments.
LAYERED — Contrast is key when wearing multiple layers of anything, so mix long with short, patterned with solids.
