Monochromatic Scarf Dressing: Perfect for Transitional Weather
As the temperatures cool across the globe and we transition into the fall and winter weather, our sensibilities always turn to a darker, more muted palette. But don't confuse the desire for a more muted palette with the desire for something that is uninteresting or lacking in depth of style. Dark, monochromatic layers can be every bit as eye-catching as a brighter, more vibrant palette. One of the best ways to achieve this, is by using scarves in your look.
Scarves are something that have traditionally always been associated with cold, wintery weather, but they are equally useful in their more lightweight permutations during transitional weather. This dark, layered look is balanced perfectly with the addition of the lightweight black Chan Luu scarf, which provides a perfect balance between the rich burgundy of the cashmere crew neck and the lighter color of the trench with contrasting sleeves. This look is the perfect transitional weather uniform; casual, yet pulled-together enough for everything from a day out shopping to the morning school run. To take this look from day to night, try swapping the trench, cashmere, and booties for a tailored blazer and pair of killer heels. By layering the blazer over a simple silk blouse, and adding the Chan Luu scarf, you are not only ready for any temperature eventuality, you also are giving a louche, relaxed vibe to your look. Trade the simple button earrings in for some statement jewelry and a chic clutch, and you are ready for dinner and drinks on the town.
