Scarves don’t just keep out the cold, they also happen to be great, simple, and versatile accessories. While they may not be as necessary as they are in winter, spring still carries a bit of a chill, making scarves are still completely appropriate to wear.
Fleece or flannel scarves are a bit too hot and stuffy for spring, but chiffon scarves, and knitted tube scarves are still comfortable and do their job. These accessories are lightweight and can still be used to layer when it gets exceptionally chilly outside. They can be worn with loose cardigans, light jackets, loose sweaters, blazers and they can even be worn alone over your top. Additionally, if you’ve forgotten your sweater or jacket, a long scarf can double as a makeshift pull over if tied and worn specifically. If you have an infinity scarf you can twist it and un-scrunch the fabric so it lays flat to act like a shrug. Similarly you can flatten any scarf to wear over your shoulders as a shawl as well. You can use these looks in a pinch or you can use them intentionally for a unique look.
Spring also allows us to play around with bright and refreshing colors. Pale pastels and some brighter, more neon colors are now in style and are totally appropriate for the season. Neutrals are always in style but spring brings color back into the world and so should your scarves! Try some pastels or pale yellows, pinks, greens, blues or purples to liven up a basic outfit. You can also try playing around with springtime prints like floral or paisley to evoke the spirit of the season. While floral patterns are an obvious spring choice, there are other patterns out there that are spring appropriate due to their color palette. Prints and patterns that use a lot of those previously mentioned pales and pastels, or use a lot of green, really evoke the feeling of the rejuvenation that has come to be synonymous with the season.
Chiffon Scarves can be worn with both casual and more professional or formal outfits depending on the material. Bring some new life to a few of your winter pieces and forego having to re-haul your entire wardrobe. Knowing how to accessorize according to the time of year and the occasion, you can mix and match most piece to last you well through the year. Check out the chiffon scarves at Chicastic now!
