Just Add a Scarf!
For months now, people have been asking when prints are going to make their way to the outside of the bag. I still don't have an answer for you all, but I do have a stalling tactic-- add a scarf! I have been collecting vintage scarves and adding them to the outside of my bags for some time now. I love how easily a scarf can take a bag from day to night or from winter to summer. So simple, so fun and so darn easy.
Scarves come in many different sizes, patterns and materials. I am a fan of the small, silk scarves with bright, bold patterns. I firmly believe you can never have too many prints. Mix a stripe and a floral or an animl print with geometric shapes. There is no wrong way to mix them. There are some obvious rules to creating a successful print mix like "stick with the same color palette" and "don't mix two dominant prints", but the best thing to do it mix until they make you smile.
- Tie a scarf to your crossbody strap or the strap of your totebag handle
- Wrap the scarf around the handle of your handbag
- Add the scarf to the zipper of your clutch
Happy print mixing!
