The Yellow Scarf: Smart Summer Accessory with Miles Of Versatility

Let’s be honest, ladies; every woman can wear a scarf and look chic and put together. The scarf is truly a universal accessory and can be tied, draped, knotted or folded in numerous stylish ways. The scarf is timeless and looks proper in any fashion decade.

When it comes to the summer scarf, I adore something with a light, delicate texture. Whatever scarf you pick up to purchase for those warm weather months ahead, buy one in yellow. That’s right; the color is happy, vivid and looks luscious next to summer whites and navys and denims, too.

The shade of yellow is also making headlines globally for spring and summer 2011. The U.S.-based Pantone Color Institute appeals to fashion designers across the world, and Pantone 13-0755 Primrose Yellow has made the cut. Here is how the well-known color institute describes one of their spring/summer colors:

“Primrose Yellow sparkles with heat and vitality. Inviting us into its instant warmth, this joyful yellow shade takes us to a destination marked by enthusiasm, good cheer and sunny days.”

I happen to agree; you cannot wear a bit of yellow and still feel down. The shade is glorious, stands out and yet goes with everything you put on.

A yellow scarf for summer instantly updates your ensemble without even trying hard. It adds a fresh, look at me pop of color without adding bulk to your outfit. The styling options are practically endless, depending on the size of the scarf you put on. You don’t have to break your serious fashionista budget and spring for a frou-frou Chanel scarf. There are plenty of beautiful scarves right here in London without the stuffy label or outrageous $500 price tag.

A scarf’s fabrication will determine if it is appropriate for summer. For example, a pretty yellow scarf in silk, cotton or linen are all wonderfully soft and breathable for those warm days and evenings. Even pashmina is a very lightweight cashmere wool that’s ideal for draping in summer. Many women wear this fabric as a shawl/scarf/wrap during all four seasons.

You can have fun wrapping, draping or tying your yellow summer scarf. You can even tie one to your handbag or tote. You could also make a pretty kerchief or turban head wrap to protect your hair from the sun and heat.


Trust me when I tell you that a yellow scarf looks lovely with dresses, skirts, jeans, shorts, a light sweater, tee-shirt, etc.

A simple accessory can amp up your fashion game in seconds, and a pretty yellow scarf will never disappoint or look wrong. Casual, dressy or in between, grab this accessory now.
