Stylish Summer Scarves

Accessories play an integral part in helping us appear polished and pulled together. That’s why this season, fashionable BGs are reaching for summery scarves to create a cool and chic look. The key to wearing scarves in the summer is to opt for silks, chiffons and other lightweight fabrics that are airy and won't absorb heat.

They are the perfect accessories for breezy, summer evenings. Whether loosely tied around the neck or used as headbands for a retro, laid-back look, scarves can be worn in a variety of ways. Plus, they can easily be incorporated into your fall wardrobe!

Of coarse I'm in love with that Coach one too. I haven't worn a scarf around the neck this summer but I looove wearing them in the hair.

Wes said...

I like the Bassanti scarf but I'm waiting to save the scarf look till the fall. I just cant be bothered right now w/ anything on my neck, it's too hot! lol

antithesis said...

i dont wear scarves in the summer. i wanted to start this summer but i really have not gone anywhere to warrant trying the look out. cute choices.

Kwana said...

Wonderful post. Very inspirational! I must up my summer scarf wardrobe.

i noticed this trend when i was in new york a few weeks ago...too bad i suffer from "hot neck" syndrome, lol...i'd going to have to wait till it gets a little cooler for this trend

BGG, I'm on the fence with this scarf thing. I guess because it's just so super hot here in Texas. I do like the look though so I bought a blouse that looks like a giant scarf and it's beautiful. It's very light weight and hangs slighty off the shoulder. It was only $20 bucks at Love Culture. I wish I had gotten a couple more. As for my favorite accessory this summer, I guess it would be the colorful bangles you introduced us too!

i have the one by freepeople...but i seemed to have developed a thing for zebra. i just picked up about 4 zebra-print things today so i might need to get with the cavalli scarf.

I never wear scarves in the summer,but I love the idea of wearing it in my hair, and like everybody else I love the coach one as well!

Calming Corners said...

I agree I love the Coach scarf. I like the look of summer scarves.

I love scarves they're a lifesaver in the summer when the change of temperature goes from hot to cold. For that reason I love simple patterns. I love Free People full fringe and Tolanzin Zig Zag.

Just K said...

BGG, for me less is better in the summer time so I don't go for the scarfs. My absolute favorite accessory this summer would have to be the beautiful purses we have to choose from...the clutch, the duffle or somewhere in between. It just makes me happy to switch up!

SolShine7 said...

Scarves are one of my weaknesses. You can wear different styles of them year round! But this summer I've been wearing a lot of headbands. I just bought a bunch from Target.

MeMe said...

So I just had to go back and look at the Coach scarf everyone was raving about...pretty cool, but not a must have for me. I don't know maybe I'm just not a scarf person. I think I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to pull it off. I think it would make me look too polished and like I'm trying too hard. I'd much rather the look look effortless. Nothing worse than people being able to tell you spent weeks/days/hours putting together the perfect outfit, necklace, sunglasses and all and it showing!

What do you think?

Greetings,

I'm here by way of rawdawg. I don't wear scarves in the summer simply because I might pass out down her in Baton Rouge, La. But perhaps I can take your advice into consideration when it gets a tad bit cooler. I like your spot!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@Everyone - Wow, I didn't know that the Coach one was that popular!

@Meme - I do know what you're talking about when "trying too hard." LOL!

Beautiful, but I never know how to tie them!

Yasmeen Christian said...

I love floral scarves.

kitty vodka said...

those are all sooooo cute but for me it will only lead to more sweating. i will have to save that rend for the fall.
