Y’all, I am LOVING this summer’s hottest trend: the neck scarf. We all know chokers took the fashion world by storm in the past year, and the comeback of the neck scarf is like the chic European cousin of the choker. I am in love. I totally plan to wear this look when we are in Paris + Rome in August…I can just see it now, riding along the back of a Vespa or eating macaroons in this chic look!
This bandana scarf necklace from Express is the perfect way to ease into this trend because it clasps in the back like a necklace + gives the illusion of a perfectly tied bandana! I will definitely need to master tying a neck scarf as I venture into more styles. I love that this necklace makes it so easy to rock this trend in a no-fuss way!
I styled this scarf necklace with a simple black romper that I love because it goes with everything! Everyone needs a plain black romper, it can be dressed up or dressed down. It’s the summer version of the LBD + you need it! Mine is Gap from a summer or two ago, but Old Navy (same company) has a very similar one here. Plus, both these rompers have pockets which is of course ah-mazing!
I added my favorite jean jacket which adds that 90’s flair that is SO in right now. Also perfect for when those summer nights cool down! Mine is Merona from Target, and this Mossimo one is similar.
I dressed it up with block heel lace up sandals from New Look, but you could absolutely wear this same exact look with sandals! Some gladiators would look adorable with this outfit. My exact shoes are no longer available but these are extremely similar!
Lastly I styled this look with a fun half-up top knot. I love this playful hairstyle so much! It’s fun + edgy at the same time.
Do y’all like this hot new summer trend? Will you be rocking a neck scarf this summer? I know I will! Comment below your thoughts on this look!
*Update: this neck scarf necklace just listed as sold out. So sorry! But you can totally still use this look as inspiration. Any neck scarf would work with this look!
