Skinny Minnie

Here is my low down on the accessories trend of the season. No outfit right now is complete without a skinny scarf. Here I am wearing one by Rockins. I’ve thrown it over my staple uniform which always consists of a stripy top from J Crew, Zara black jacket and jeans from Anthropologie.

HOW: This trend has been around for a few seasons now. Made famous by Kate Moss who is always seen out and about wearing her bestie Jess Morris’ brand Rockins. The skinny scarf is the ultimate in rock chic and has taken over the statement necklace on the style front. It’s come into its own this season.

WHAT: A skinny bit of patterned silk sometimes finished with tassels that fashionistas are wearing about town loose around their neck. Most definitely a look for day. Wear one at any time and think of it like a mans tie worn undone. Most designers and high street stores stock them so there are loads to choose from and varying in price.

WEAR: With a loose fitted denim shirt, t-shirt, leather biker jacket or blazer jacket. Not really to be worn with a coat as that will just over power what this little slip of a scarf is about. It’s not really a dress accessory either – too feminine!

WHO: All the cool cats – Mossy, Sienna, Fearne and Rosie. If you’re into rock chic, Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent and Parisian life then this is the accessory for you.

WITH: Attitude, smokey eye make up and a hangover. Not that I am supporting any of those characteristics in the above photos, promise!

WHY: The skinny scarf should be effortless and easy to wear so there is no ‘why’ really, only ‘when’ and that’s easy – always!
