Kim Kardashian In Chan Luu Houndstooth Print Wool Scarf
In everything that you see or read about fashion, the words “pop of color” seem to appear. Whether you are looking at video footage of the couture shows, or perhaps browsing your favorite online high street retailer, there can be little doubt that adding just the right color accent to your look, that “pop” of color, is at the heart of the modern approach to accessorizing. Yet there is another, equally effective approach when it comes to adding accent and interest to a look that has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence this past season; the use of graphic black and white.
Kim Kardashian’s look is a perfect example of how you do not necessarily have to use color when using a scarf to add accent and interest to a look; her large-scale houndstooth print makes a bold statement against a fitted black motorcycle jacket layered over a tunic length top. Her choice of a motocross-inspired skinny jean lends an air of casual chic to the look, yet the dark wash of the denim keeps the silhouette streamlined. Here, the bold scale of the Chan Luu eggshell and black houndstooth print wool scarf actually works to soften the look; the graphic pattern softens with the drape and flow of the fabric, creating interest when juxtaposed against the harder, motorcycle-inspired pieces she is wearing as a base layer. To pull it all together, the classic Birkin bag in a complementary eggshell color is the perfect way to repeat the graphic black and white color story she has created with the scarf.
