A beautifully crafted scarf never fails to be the perfect accessory to top off a polished outfit. But come springtime and warmer weather, that final layer can sometimes be a tricky add-on. Designers offer up a bevy of spring-ready scarves in lighter fabrications and spunkier patterns than their cold-weather counterparts, but pulling off these statement designs takes effort. Unless you're cruising in a convertible along the Côte d'Azur, a spring scarf can read as a bit too bold or out of place if not styled with care.
So steps in Olivia Palermo to demonstrate the perfect way to style a scarf for spring. Out at a Fragrance Foundation luncheon in New York City, Palermo finished off her monochrome menswear-inspired getup with a contrasting skinny scarf that pulled the whole look together. The scarf's dark blue and subtle detailing popped against the beige plaid of her two-piece suit and the matching beige of her Chloé bag. Palermo tied the scarf to the side, allowing its asymmetrical nature to give the look a playful modernism. The skinny silhouette was a stylish nod to a men's tie, providing a chic finishing touch to the suit while also giving it a breath of springtime air.
