Scarf updates

Tis the season – of the lightweight scarf that is. I know, it’s still so warm in Brisbane, but it won’t be for long, and it’s definitely time to start looking at those in-between pieces that will save you when the chill does decide to arrive.

Scarves are one of those key pieces. Light-weight, cotton, neutral or bright – they’re one of the easiest and most versatile trans-seasonal pieces you’ll lay your hands on.

The easiest way to wear the larger, broader scarves is a single loop around the neck, and tucking the ends under the loop so it all sits neatly. It can be dropped down on to the shoulders and wrapped for more of a shawl affect also, and I love them as a wrap for small children if it gets cold when you’re out toward the evening. There’s a lot of fabric to drape them in.

If you’re choosing a print, the rest of your look can stay minimal and the scarf is the hero piece that updates and adds just enough to the outfit. See? Scarves. Life-savers.

Here are some of my favourites available now:

Sussan scarf $39.99
Sussan scarf $14.96 on sale (Note, the colours match beautifully with summery looks, making it easier to work into your wardrobe now through autumn).
Gregory Ladner scarf $27.97 at David Jones
Seed scarf $39.95 at David Jones
Blue Illusion cashmere blend scarf $99.99
Taking Shape scarf $49.95

Side note: Let’s pick up the conversation again and talk about kerchiefs some time soon. Around the hair, around the neck, or around the bag strap. Much to discuss.
