Scarf it Up

September 3, 2012 / Design Tips

The cooler weather of Fall isn’t so bad, especially when you’ve got the accessories to go with it. Right now, that means scarves. We’re constantly amazed by the beautiful creations of artisans on etsy, and these are some of our cool-weather favorites right now.

Check out these red leaves! With the trees getting ready to turn, why should they have all the fun? This shop features all sorts of colors and styles of imaginative scarves-almost-necklaces.

Feeling artsy yourself? This chunky scarf is not too hard to make. You can buy the pattern and then whip it up yourself (or hand the instructions, and some chunky yarn, off to a crafty friend who owes you a favor).

This next one is perfect for bookworms or romantic types. It’s decorated with hand-screened text! This one features a passage from Jane Eyre, and other texts are available. Very clever and really lovely.

Speaking of lovely, these fish are hand-painted on silk, creating a lively piece that moves, and swims, as it’s draped around your neck and shoulders. Another hand-painted beauty is this chiffon flower scarf; delicate, wearable art.

And here’s one of our favorites: bright pink crocheted skulls! It’s got a terrific mix of toughness and tastefulness that brightens up the dreariest of fall days.

Have fun. Stay cool!
