While researching beautiful styling options, we discovered this great tone-on-tone look at accessories specialist Codello. The unique interplay of fabrics, colors and patterns reflects the wonderful lightness of summer. The playful summer scarf made of light fabric and with casual plucked fringes looks super in combination with the natural-colored linen pants. Perfectly match the small clutch and espadrilles with Snoopy motif. The new scarves from Codello enchant us with other cute motifs such as unicorn, Peanuts, Mickey Mouse and Dumbo. In each new collection, the accessories label brings out colorful designs that beautifully complement any outfit. For the office, you may copy the look in the picture on the left one to one.

Scarves for the cool nights of summer


The trend from last winter, namely the “belted scarf”, we can take with us into the next season. A light summer scarf is attached to the body with a narrow waist belt and can also be worn with a breezy little dress. This belt and scarf combo also works well with summer jeans and a simple top.

However, it is important to keep a low profile when it comes to accessories. Any scarves that are large enough are suitable for this look. Like, for example, these unique scarves from LOOKS by Wolfgang JOOP, which we discovered again at The hand-drawn motifs radiate a feminine charm and make each scarf a fashionable eye-catcher. Fringes on the edges give the accessory a casual touch.

But the turban style you can also succeed with a rectangular cloth. In the video below, this blogger shows how to tie the turban in 5 different variations:

Scarves as hair accessories


Your bun, braided pigtail or ponytail look too boring? Then you can upgrade these simple hairstyles with a pretty scarf. For this, it’s best to choose a classy silk scarf in vibrant colors that evoke summer feelings. Likewise, a scarf can be used as a hair band or headband. But for this styling you need a larger long rectangular or square cloth (at least 55 x 55 cm ) made of a lightweight material. The bandana prevents the hair from falling into the face and is also great for bad hair days.
