I love the colors and textures available this time of year! Above, I’ve created a couple of accessory “bundles.” Either accessory color story could work with either bag shown.
No kidding, I’m doing the Snoopy Happy Dance daily now that the weather has cooled down enough to bust out the scarves! I’m a bit color and pattern-averse when it comes to clothing, so scarves can be real power players in my wardrobe. I use them to:
- Add color near the face
- Provide an accent color and/or pattern for neutrals
- Add variety
- Tie together other colors in an outfit
- Keep the neck warm! (I have some arthritis in my neck, and find wearing a scarf in cool temperatures helps prevent and reduce stiffness.)
Plaid and buffalo check prints seem to be “hot” for fall, and a scarf is one way to play with this trend without veering to sharply into Lumberjack or Grunge territory. If you’re into pattern mixing, wear your plaid or check scarf with stripes, animal print or floral print.
If prints aren’t your thing, or you’re looking for a solid scarf to wear with printed pieces, I really like the Nordstrom in-house branded scarves. The cashmere and silk blend is a lighter-weight option, and the tissue-weight wool and cashmere blend provides warmth without bulk. Both are great for travel.
Nordstrom has a fantastic selection of fall scarves and accessories in a wide range of brands and prices. They offer free shipping and returns and if you have questions, their customer service people are knowledgable and helpful.
What do you most look forward to wearing when cooler weather arrives?
