The other day I was flipping through a Free People magazine I got in the mail, and a certain recurring trend caught my eye. Scarves being tied directly at the neck… almost looking ascot-like. To my surprise, I actually love the way this looks.
Where had I seen this before? Well, they were all over the runways for Fall/Winter 2015-16. In fact this trend showed up in New York, Milan, and Paris for several shows, each styled differently.
Fall/Winter 2015-2016, Chloe, Paris
Fall/Winter 2015-2016, Moncler Gamme Rouge, Paris
Fall/Winter 2015-2016, Bottega Veneta, Milan
Fall/Winter 2015-2016, Marc by Marc Jacobs, New York
Obviously, not all statements made on the runway show up in everyday fashion, but these scarves are subtle and stylish enough to most definitely have the possibility of showing up in everyday fashion. Not all of these looks take on the exact form of an ascot or neck tie scarf, but they definitely seem inspired by them. These scarves were popular accessories for women in the 50s, and made a big comeback in the disco-era for both men and women. Could they be making a comeback in today’s fashion? When styled with the right garments, I think so! My suggestion if you like this trend: try to get them before they the prices begin to sky rocket.
