silk scarf & embellished bibs!
documenting the versatility of the short sleeve sweater with @bananarepublic today! when these sweater tees arrived from Banana Republic i thought it would be a good idea to show some simple ways to dress them up. while the statement necklace is a pretty standard go-to... i decided on a silk scarf and this really fun embellished bib. in addition, these types of sweaters go with all bottoms -- skirts, pants, shorts. here, i've styled them for some work wear, and casually with some distressed skinny jeans.
the key to the silk scarf is go with a square one otherwise you have too much material hanging around your neck. a double knot always works making one side slightly longer than the other. asymmetry is always good. pro tip: you can also tie the scarf around your wrist or your handbag. i am a huge fan of silk scarves -- such a classy factor that will never go out of style. the embellished bibs are a little hard to find but they also come in collars as well. another great and unexpected way to add a little something to a plain top!
