The Jewellery Edit: How Colourful Scarves Became a Mini Trend

This look couldn’t be easier to pull off, says NATASHA SHERLING


Although still lovely wound around the leather handles of a bag, colourful scarves have now migrated upwards, to wrists, in a mini trend spotted outside both SS19 and AW19 shows. Injecting a most welcome pop of colour, this look couldn’t be easier to pull off; especially as designers have generously taken the extra step of providing us with luscious patterned fabric fashioned especially for our wrists.


Versace have twisted their iconic Medusa head motif with gold toned cuffs for characteristically mega amounts of glamour; Balenciaga have supersized the cuff itself, wrapping abstract floral prints tight – but leaving ends loose to peak out perfectly from under any sleeve.

Mikia’s approach is more casual, with a bandana print in cotton proving the perfect piece for lazy summer weekends. And it mightn’t be ready-made, but it must be remembered – Hermes‘ silk Twilly scarf is the perfect length and width for a few wraps around a bare wrist, and with so many patterns to choose from we can’t help but want one or two – even if we have to tie them ourselves. Bonus points for adding in a scarf ring for a touch of extra shine.
