Eventually, after quite the run, I retired the trend, but even so, I still grow weak in the knees at the sight of a really fabulous scarf print, rich in colour, woven to full opacity, and usually featuring an equestrian or nautical motif. Naturally, then, the scarf print trend for spring/summer is one I've jumped at. Scarf print covering my entire body? Oui.
However, printed silk also threatens huge margin for error, given its occasional appropriation by all kinds of wrong; immediately coming to mind are: cheap dollar-bin ties, medallion-print tunics circa '03, and Sears prom dresses. (The third example was a trick point; Sears prom dresses are always wrong). Anyway, to avoid being worn by the scarf print instead of the other way around, avoid colour palettes both fluorescent and watercolour, anything patchwork, and--it should go without saying--any pairing with ribbed jersey cotton.
