Scarves are one of the most versatile clothing items you can own. I love how a cold weather scarf can keep you warm, a bandana can add some earthiness, a silk scarf can add a little French style, and a pashmina can be used as a wrap when you are dressed up. I can’t think of very many clothing items that have such versatility. And they’re timeless. When you see them in an old movie, or on an old movie star (like Grace Kelly, below), they still hold up. They don’t look dated. They’re classy, and classic.
Now I know red is a color that is fairly controversial. I used to think you either loved it or hated it. But I’ve realized that that simply can’t be true, because I don’t love or hate it! I actually really like it – in small doses. Do I think a great drop dead red dress can be gorgeous? Definitely. I just don’t ever gravitate to such a big statement color in a big way. In fact, last year for Valentine’s Day my daughter didn’t have anything red to wear for her school spirit day so she was looking in my closet, and it was then that I realized that I literally don’t have any red clothing – not kidding! Not a sweater, blouse, or top to be found. But this is the rub. I love it in accessories! I think a great red bag can make an outfit!
Well, it’s been ages since I’ve talked fashion here on the blog, and I’ve missed it! And since fall is probably my favorite season – especially when it comes to fashion – I thought I’d touch on one of the biggest fashion trends coming this fall!
