Scarf prints are making an encore performance for Fall 2019 which is great news for your wallet because you can totally rework the scarf print pieces you already invested in last Fall!
In case you missed this trend the first time around a scarf print is usually a mix of paisley, chains, and sometimes even florals. Think about Versace’s iconic 1990s prints.
Typically on a silk or silk-like fabric it encompasses classical architecture and historical motifs, hanky hemlines and flowy silhouettes which channel a scarf-like effect that creates an opulent feel.
It’s a print that makes you feel oh-so-bougie in a GOOD way and look as though you are stylish AF.
Several fashion houses such as Burberry, Gucci, Versace and Chanel are channeling their love for nostalgia through scarf prints by creating what has been dubbed as “archive prints” this season. Archive prints are basically prints resurrected from the designs of days gone by.
This nod to yesteryear not only cerebrates the history and tradition of the house by bringing some of their biggest hits back to life it also gives the Fall 2019 collections a unique retro feel, almost as though each piece is a hidden gem discovered in a vintage shop.
Dressing like a Bougie Girl is kind of the “biggest” thing this season which makes scarf prints prime real estate and reworking your older pieces a breeze.
Last season it was all about wearing that scarf print head-to-toe but this time around think giant scarves tied in bows around your neck worn with an English Tweed suit, silky scarf print skirts paired with a classic boucle jacket and retro Parisian style scarf print dresses adorned with brassy gold buttons.
Although it’s still a bit too hot to go full blown fall with it, you can start to incorporate your scarf prints now and sprinkling them into your summer repertoire by pairing with easy peasant blouses and ooh-la-la neck scarves to create that French peasant girl effect then when things cool down bouge it up a bit by adding those heavier fabrics.
