In recent years, scarves have really made a come-back as a fashion staple. The young and trendy are wearing them all year-round and have made retailers stock as many different fashion options as possible. For Spring 2011, some fashionable scarf trends are going to be animal print scarves, snoods, and tasseled scarves.
Animal Print Scarves
Animal print scarves are a real easy way to spice up any outfit. It’s the perfect fashion accessory when you want to add a design or color to your outfit, but don’t want to be over dramatic. One good way to wear your favorite all-black outfit is to add a leopard print scarf. You can choose from either a gold and spotted scarf or a silver and spotted scarf to pair as an accessory for the outfit. These scarves come in a range of material from silk, cotton, to fluffy faux fur. There are also many different prints to choose from, but the leopard print seems to be the most common. For an example of this scarf, check out Jessica Simpson’s cheetah print scarf available from Macy’s here.
Snoods are scarves which come in a circular shape which can by worn around the neck just by slipping it over the head. The advantages of a snood are that you don’t have to worry about re-tying your scarf all the time and you don’t have to worry about the loose ends getting caught in something. These scarves are not just for keeping warm, though, they are also very fashionable. You can see a simple example of a snood here.
Tasseled and fringed scarves have become very popular. There are many styles, colors, and prints to choose from when shopping for these scarves. One of the most popular style is a color paired with black in a checkered pattern. You can see a black and white example of these scarves here. These scarves are very trendy among younger groups because they add a little touch of fringe to their look.
These three scarf trends are going to continue on well into 2011. Animal print scarves add that extra little flavor that an outfit might need in order to come to life. Snoods offer benefits besides fashion. And tasseled scarves allow the younger generations to rebel in a way that is fashionably appealing. All of these scarves can be found at affordable prices, allowing anyone to follow these trends.
