Fall Fashion: The Wrap Shawl

Wrap Up For Fall

If there's one accessory we recommend for this time of year, it's a good wrap or oversized scarf.

This year the wrap is a great statement maker and a lighter weight alternative to a cape.

Incredibly versatile, you can wear it with your favorite jacket for a daytime look or alone draped over your shoulders for the evening. Add a few pins or a broach to keep it closed while adding personalization.

Tips for Layering With a Scarf

There aren't many rules when it comes to layering with an oversized scarf, but our guidance is watch the volume. Keep the folds low (away from your face) and off center. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the weight of a wrap shawl, so be mindful of what you are wearing under--a sleek knit or silk top work best. Save your chunky sweaters for another look.

Finding the Best Wrap For You

While a plaid like the one pictured is always a timeless print, feel free to go bold by mixing in fun patterns or bright colors. For a more minimalistic look, go for a sharp black or crisp white. 

Stay Stylish,
