In my recent trips to Europe (London and Paris last fall and Rome and Tuscany a few weeks ago), I’ve admired the chic yet effortless look of European women. While the city-chic dresses, pants, and structured flats would be out of place in my laid back hometown of Delray Beach, I’ve been seeking to find a way to incorporate a more Euro vibe into my typical beachy wardrobe. Enter the summer scarf. Particularly in French culture, silk scarves are everywhere. They add a touch of elegance and je ne sais quoi to the most basic of outfits. For me, I love how the addition of a scarf adds some color to my largely neutral wardrobe. My favorite way to wear a silk scarf is to pair it with an unexpected outfit. In this instance, a scarf dresses up a casual outfit of cutoffs and an off-the-shoulder top, adding an unlikely twist and making the look a bit more grown up.
