Another 80’s fashion trend to come around again, scarf prints are showing up in collections for designers of all styles. But this time, the prints aren’t just the classic gold chain weaving through a navy background. These prints of new go for color and worldly pattern – a nod to Gianni Versace in his heyday with a twist.
Use these patterned pieces just as you would pair an actual scarf…juicing up solids. But don’t shy away from the full on dress for the va-va-vroom effect.
Instagram feeds of beautiful prime women show us how it’s done.
Our own contributing Prime writer, Nancy Weiss, wears scarf print tops and skirts with the epitome of effortless style on her instagram feed a.two.drink.minimum. On her blog to help others wear the new look, she instructs “Floral, paisley or geometric scarf prints can be paired with animal print which is another trend for fall 2019.”
Now don’t these women just look classy! With patterns this busy, it’s always good to show the form and shape of your body, especially your waist.
We’ve seen everything from tunic-style, flowy scarf blouses, to the high-necked, high glamour blouses of old Hollywood and feel they are all agelessly wearable.
Not everyone is going to be able to carry off this full-baroque power piece. Too much for you? Still pick up your own scarf print blazer and tone it down with solids…even jeans.
