Spring Outfit: How to Wear a Neck Scarf #FashionFriday

Hello, Friday! This week has flown for me, how about you? It is not only Friday, it is also day 3 of 27 Days of Spring Fashion.

If you’re just now tuning in, I’m teaming up with Cyndi from Grace + Beauty, and we’re each styling a new spring outfit every day (except Sundays) for the entire month of March. That’s a total of 54 outfits for your spring style inspiration! If you missed the first two days, you can catch up HERE.

Styling a simple spring outfit showing how to wear a neck scarf, a popular fashion trend for spring 2017! The distressed jeans keep it from being too sweet.

The neck scarf trend is really hot right now. I’m seeing these everywhere, and I think it’s such a cute way to elevate a basic look. Take for example this outfit — a simple scoop neck tee, white jeans, and espadrille sandals would be fine on their own (and let’s face it, that’s what I live in for most of the spring and summer!) But when you add a printed neck scarf, suddenly you have a stylish outfit that can take you almost anywhere.

This silk neck scarf is from LOFT, and it’s 40% off! It’s hard to see from the way I have it folded, but there is some blush in the floral print, which I thought coordinated nicely with this tee.

SALE ALERT >> Everything at LOFT is 40% off right now with code NEWNOW, plus you will receive $50 in LOFTCASH for every $50 you spend.

The easiest way to wear a neck scarf is to tie it in a simple knot. First, I folded it into a triangle, and then I just rolled it up, put it around my neck, and tied it into a loose knot. You can play around with it to see how tight you want it. I think when a scarf is skinnier, it looks better to tie it a little tighter. You can wear it right in the middle of your neck, but I like to turn mine to the side a bit, like you see here.

This linen scoop neck tee is from Banana Republic, and it runs small. I’m wearing the medium, and even the medium is pretty fitted, so I’m hoping it doesn’t shrink in the wash. This “blushing pink” color is on sale for $23.

While I love this blush color, it’s probably not the best for my skin tone, so I like how the printed scarf brings more flattering colors near my face.

These Marc Fisher espadrilles spoke to me when I was shopping at Nordstrom back in January, and I snatched them right up. Now I’m seeing them everywhere. I thought they were a nice alternative to the other Marc Fisher style that’s so popular.

They come in mushroom, cognac, black, and the blush suede that I’m wearing. They’re super comfortable and easy to walk in. With a 4 1/4″ heel and a 1 3/4″ platform, you don’t feel like you’re walking in heels, but you get the benefit of the added height.

I like how these distressed white jeans add some texture to the outfit and keep it from being too sweet. These are actually part of the Shopbop Go Big Sale that is running right now, and I absolutely love them. I think I got them around this time last spring, and they’ve held up extremely well. They’re super comfortable and have just the right amount of distressing (in my opinion!)

Of course, I know not everyone can get behind the destructed denim trend, and that’s totally fine. Wear whatever you are most comfortable in. However, if you do like them, but you’re afraid to try them or you’re wondering if you are too old, I say, nonsense! It’s not about age, it’s about your personal style aesthetic. If you like them, you can totally wear them.

Finally, Kate Spade is running a 25% off sale through Sunday! That includes this mylie hobo in the rose cloud that I’m carrying here, as well as the grey and pink versions that are already on sale, so an additional 25% off that!

Also, this bag is a great faux leather alternative for $35.

This is the type of look I love to put together because you can recreate it with what you have in your closet or with your favorite retailers at any price point. (But definitely grab one of these scarves while they’re 40% off! LOFT has a ton of cute ones to choose from.)
