ikat is still as hot as it was last summer, and promises to be absolutely everywhere this spring (see tory burch’s ikat-crazy resort line for proof). whether the colors are muted or bold, an ikat-patterned scarf is an endlessly versatile way to add a little trendy to your pre-spring style. wear it now with a trench, or pair it with tights to warm up a flirty spring dress in a couple of months, when you just can’t bear another day of thick sweaters and wool trousers.
the version above is our “high” version – made by yarnz, it’s 100% cashmere and sells for $188. this one looks so cozy to me..it’s hard to resist.
of course, if you’re loving the look but less willing to commit, i love the bolder colors in this version by charlotte russe…especially for just $9! the styling is a little trickier to pull off, as it’s a square scarf, but that also makes it even better for warmer weather. tie it cowboy-style like all the trendy girls are these days, and you’re set for spring.
