Cultivated and Feminine

Scarves can turn an ensemble from blah to bling carrying a look through even the most active schedule. With spring descending on our Island in full neutral tone, and the season’s styles taking a decidedly male-inspired look, a scarf of soft feminine silk and bold, wild pattern is just the thing to break the threat of monotony. Whether tied like a tie, as shown here, or wrapped neatly around the neck beneath your favorite trench, a light spring scarf will reinvent coordinates. Favorite picks include Etro, $270, Pucci $190 and Fur a Landau, $85, all available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
