The final stop on Phil Oh’s fashion week tour is Paris, and the looks he captures never disappoint. As you review street style from Paris Fashion Week, you can expect epic off-runway looks and moments of extraordinary creativity from maximalists, minimalists, and every style in between. You could say the fashion month circuit saved the best for last! A common point among this group of Parisian spectators? A penchant for the most classic accessory of the French girl style, the scarf.
A handful of PFW attendees — each with their own personal style, we might add — have incorporated a silk scarf into their look. No matter how they dressed, whether it was a leather jacket borrowed from the boys or a hot pink working girl skirt suit, there was a knotted handkerchief somewhere around them.
We could say goodbye to fashion month, but it’s clear the scarf is here to stay. Pick one that’s vintage or new, and you’ll find there’s no shortage of ways to incorporate a silk bandana into your wardrobe year-round. Here, a delicious demonstration of the possibilities of the accessory, according to the Paris Fashion Week street style set.
