all wrapped up
In London, scarves make an appearance quite early in the autumn and remain as a necessity when
we are almost nearing the peak summer months. Since living in Scotland, I’ve collected quite
an arsenal of scarves. And though I enjoy the bundled up warm, cozy feeling, I can’t help but
crave a polished look. I think I’m nearing more blanket scarves than socks at this point in my
wardrobe and so I thought I would share how I’m deciding to wear my blanket scarves through
autumn and the rest of the year for a “hopefully” more complete look that can help turn any
ordinary outfit into something a bit different.
Maybe this is an Indian thing, but it’s always important to have one silk scarf in your closet.
One that is in a rich hue and compliments most of your closet’s color palette. A silk scarf
can be worn any time of the year from the beaches in the summer to the winter evening dinners
out. I simply tie it around my neck when traveling with a coat on and then drape around my
back delicately placing the ends on my arms. It’s quite ladylike and elevates the look of
any simple dress!
what I wore
If you can’t tell from my Instagram, I’m a big fan of the leggings. It’s one fashion faux
pas that I allow myself to embrace. My weekdays are usually really long in meetings and
wearing full suits and business formal dresses, so a simple leggings outfit is just the way to
enjoy a weekend in my opinion. I have a few long vests and tunics and throwing on a scarf
around my neck with a skinny belt is a great way to add dimension to a simple weekend outfit
that is equally lounge-worthy and exudes casual sophistication.
what I wore
Ponchos dominated the street-style game this past fashion month and is autumn is greeting the
70s trend they are starting to take over. As you know, I don’t particularly enjoy spending
too much on trends and styles that I won’t wear that often and will eventually fade away.
It’s super easy to make your own poncho with a blanket scarf draped over your shoulders and
belted around the waist leaving the back loose.
