Fall is coming up quickly, and the thought of incorporating scarves into our everyday outfits has us all kinds of excited. Here at Goldfinch, we have a variety of scarves in different shapes, sizes, and colors, so whatever style you gravitate towards, you’re sure to find the perfect fit. And in our opinion, they’re hands down the perfect accessory and a total necessity as the days turn cooler.
So, let’s talk style--why scarves? What makes these beauties the ideal finishing touches to a fall wardrobe?
On a practical note, they’re essential as the weather shifts. During the upcoming transition months, the weather can range anywhere from blistering summer heat to crisp and chilly winds, which makes outfit planning a bit complicated. Wearing a heavy sweater can backfire if the afternoon heats up, but opting for only a light dress might leave you feeling cold and uncomfortable. A scarf provides a happy medium, giving you flexibility and easily layering on top of any ensemble. Toss one over your shoulders as a shawl to warm you up in a snap, or take a break from the heat by rearranging your scarf around your waist or as a hairpiece. It’s versatile and simple as can be when it comes to adjusting your temperature and staying comfortable all day long.
Beyond temperature, scarves are ideal for blending day and night style. Whether you’re topping a pair of khakis, a chunky knit sweater or an evening dress, it’s an accessory that makes outfit transitions seamless. For a casual look, use your scarf as a belt or layer a scarf over your outfit by draping it loosely--both emphasize comfort and ease. If you want to opt for a more refined and dressed up vibe, try a front knot for interest, or drape it around your shoulders as a gorgeous wrap. You’ll find that dressing up or down is a total snap.
Scarves are perfect for adding a splash of personality to your style, too. No matter what types of clothes you prefer--pared down and neutral or layered, bright and colorful--a scarf can add instant pizzazz. Transform a simple outfit by tossing a small scarf around your neck or adding a beautiful pattern to your hair as a quick and stylish ponytail solution. Prefer a looser flowing look? Tuck the corner of a scarf into your pocket for added texture and movement or let the long ends float in the breeze behind you. And try tying it around your head for a chic and sophisticated retro look. The possibilities are endless--just remember that to achieve the perfect scarf style and individualize your look, the trick is to be creative.
As we round the corner into fall, don’t forget to add scarves to your list of must-have accessories. From practical solutions to stylish expressions, they’re ideal for any day of the week, no matter the look you’re going for.
And that’s what we call a bit of Goldfinch magic.
