The high street fashion sales have started and we’re all in that mid-season slump where we’ve bought enough skimpy sun dresses and bikinis (just waiting for that summer weather to kick in) but aren’t quite ready to start investing in our autumn/winter wardrobes. Cue the statement summer scarf! The one closet staple that’s not only trans-seasonal but practical too. Take a lesson from a glowing, pregnant Jessica Alba. Her pastel scarf completely overhauls a muted, dressed down ensemble, tackles the summer breeze and adds an instant hit of cool.
We’ve fallen for this lilac Wallis number. It’s got the same pastel tone and better still, has just been marked down in the sale! Wrap it around your neck once, and then tie the ends into a loose knot for a catwalk inspired style. Make yours work hard too, ladies. A summer scarf can double up as a coverup on the beach and provides a great alternative to a cardie on nights out during the warmer months. Think of the cost per wear! LW
