Bows have been seen a lot lately on the Resort 2016 runways, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I love the feminine silhouette. The many different ways designers have been incorporating them into dresses, shirts and pants is adorable without being overwhelming. -(Anyway many of the looks I have been seeing.) An easy way to ‘bow down to the bow trend’ is to tie a light scarf in a bow around your neck.. Neck scarves are chic, and trendsetters such as Kendall Jenner and fashion bloggers everywhere have been seen wearing cute neck scarves lately.
Scarves are my favorite way to complete an outfit. They add color, movement, and can be used in a variety of ways to spice up an outfit. While some people think of scarves as something to wear to keep warm, there are many lighter options that won’t make you break a sweat. Light organza, lace, cotton or silk scarves are all wearable in the summertime.
I added a matching pastel organza scarf to the latest Kate Stoltz NYC summer crop top instead of incorporating it into the pattern. The removable scarf can be worn around the neck, or tied around a handbag handle as a cute accessory. While I love the bow trend, trends have a tendency to disappear within a couple of weeks or months. Because of that, I wanted to create a top that could be changed based on the Kate Stoltz customer’s mood. A statement necklace could completely change the mood.
The look was inspired by my last visit to the Hamptons, in early July. I saw a couple of breathtaking sunsets, almost the color of the crop top. The whitecaps of the waves, the breezes and calm serenity relaxed me and I wanted to create something that reflected that mood and scene ❤ To shop or browse the look, click on the links:
