I love oversized scarfs! I would need an entire new closet for them very soon.:-)))

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I am totally embracing the all-season scarf. I love the Vera Wang resort looks as well as Gemma Ward's look. I want that Alexander Wang cashmere scarf as well as the Alexander McQueen printed scarf for myself!

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

These do look like some very cool summer time scarves. Who ever said scarves were just for the winter?

Fashionista said...

love all the scarves...

XAVS said...

Great items! Yes, indeed...plus, very convenient, specially in summer when we use lighter colours and the aircon is alway son...

style crusader said...

I think scarves really add something to an outfit!

That Girl said...

Ooh I like the snuggly looking grey one! Perfect for a cashmere moment on a winters day, indoors by the fire! (Why I am thinking that when the sun is shining outside I do not know!) Perhaps its because I walked past a shop this morning that had a pre-fall collection on display?

Velo said...

wow fabulous scraf! i am dreaming to have all of all!!!

Ela said...

I absolutely adore scarves, only recently started incorporating them into my daily outfits and now I wonder why I didn't do it sooner. So many great ones are affordable so it's easy to add some pop to an otherwise 'blah' outfit.

Fabulous giveaway, CC! Hope you're having a great week thus far. Thank you for the comment on my hair. xx

Little Rus said...

Scaves are fabulous! So is your post, as always. :) xxx

trendkat said...

Great, now I need scarves! Lol. Thanks CC! Do you notice all the belts too? I have a secret obsession with belts that's really not so secret! Love the plaid!

XOXO!

Bahrain Fashion said...

Vera Wang resort: It's simply dazzling ;) And the Gucci, too!

polishedsense said...

You should send in a photo of yourself with a fabulous scarf for my contest!

I love the plaid scarf in photo 7 and I love love LOVE the grey scarf with the bead sequence on it! So stylish!

Jessica

XOXO!!

Amy said...

All of the scarves look so colorful and gorgeous! Thank you for doing the giveaway!

lisa said...

I once read that all-season scarves were gaining in popularity partly because of climate change, which is creating milder winters and colder summers. When summer weather is hot one day and positively autumnal the next, a scarf is definitely a nice accessory to have!

KIRAFASHION said...

I love scarves, I can't live without them!

Calming Corners said...

I love scarfs. Wonderful selection. I wear them all year!

xo,
CC

EchoScarfGirl said...

Carrie - I love how you compiled all these great scarves! And I'm so tired of hearing how some people think wearing scarves in warm weather is weird. Scarves are great year 'round. So I think it's great you show how versatile a scarf is. Thank you! :) Great site too!

zupu said...

Scarves for me are so important, like light cardigans during the summer and you can play with your look. Adorable pieces!

Cammila said...

I've got some kind of as-yet-unstudied form of dyslexia that prevents me from properly tying a scarf. I always end up standing in front of the mirror for like 10 minutes trying to figure it out, worrying that I'm going to somehow accidentally strangle myself, and posthumously become the subject of a rumor that I accidentally killed myself during "erotic asphyxiation," like Michael Hutchence or David Carradine.


These are all pretty scarves though.

*Dith* said...

this is one item I am still learning how to work with. It looks fine on others but on me..it just feels like I'm on a suicide quest. Lol i'm learning tho.

Minis however, I abs loveee

OceanDreams said...

Scarfs keep you warm and they look fantastic too! :) xoxo

clarewbrown said...

Now darling CC. Why did you have to indulge one of my obsessions - SCARVES?

Le sigh.

And isn't that Dsquared look TDF?! I absolutely looooove that look; I’ve tried recreating it, and I do adore the end result!

bisous,
La C.

Ha, I actually have that edition of Vogue! I pretty much wear a scarf all year round as well, changing from silk to cashmere/wool depending on the weather. Definitely a must-have! Love these choices! The Edrem look is stunning and of course I adore the McQueen. I'm also fascinated by the necklace scarf! Thanks for this terrific summary!
