How To Wear A Summer Scarf Through Fall

We love the beginning of autumn, when it’s too cool to sweat and too warm to wear a jacket.  That’s why keeping the scarf you’ve been wearing on chillier summer nights is always a good idea.  You don’t really want to break out a sweater just yet.


Start with a lighter-colored cotton scarf in plaid – appropriate for fall yet not too wintery.  We like updating the scarf from summer to autumn with booties and slim dark denim, and then adding a white henley.  (A couple of the shirt’s top buttons can be unfastened, so the scarf can sit both on and inside the henley.)  Add a long-strap shoulder bag in a warm fall color, a metallic leather wrap bracelet, and pretty earrings that don’t dangle too much, and you’re good to go.
