Summer Scarves, Boho Chic

June 4th, 2014

The weather is starting to warm up…finally!!…and summer is on it’s way. One of our favorite trends, year-round, but especially in the summer, are scarves. There are so many fabulous ways to rock a scarf besides around your neck. For an ultra chic boho look, try tying a bright scarf around your head and tying it underneath. Like this! Big shades also encouraged. It’s an effortless look and when used as a hair wrap you don’t even have to do your hair that morning.

A scarf can also double as a beach wrap in the summertime. Throw one in your tote and use as a cover up at the beach or wrap it around you when the sun sets. Summer scarf fabrics that work best are: silk, linen, cotton or a very thin cashmere. Try accenting bright prints over neutral tops-keep it simple.

Although the summer temps tend to sky rocket during summer in the city, the nights can always get cool..and so can the air conditioners!! If you are coming to New York City to visit make sure to pack a summer scarf. It is small enough to throw in your bag and you never know when you will need it. If you do not already own this summer essential, purchase a few on one our weekly wholesale shopping programs!


One of the most popular showroom visits on the Garment Center tour is to a designer showroom which creates gorgeous custom dyed scarves and wraps. Not only do Shop Gotham Garment Center tours grant you access into the private world of designer fashion but they also offer the most remarkable deals on current fashion that exists in NYC.
