Scarves Szn & Missing Threads
Happy New Year, People!
As we are in the midst of winter, it’s the perfect opportunity to elevate our style through layering and texture using scarves – the most versatile and timeless accessory. One of the standout trends for autumn winter 2023/2024 is using bold colours and prints to make a statement, such as electric blue, cherry red and neon green.
This season, break free from the conventional; styling a scarf doesn’t have to be your traditional around-the-neck approach. An oversized scarf can be worn as a shawl or a cape, fashioning a long-striped scarf into a balaclava.
Scarves with fringe details or embroidery offer more exciting textures to elevate a simple coat or jacket this season.
