According to Paris Fashion Week Street Style, You’ll Need a Foulard or Scarf for Spring

Spread the love


The last stop of the Phil Oh fashion week tour is Paris, and the looks he captures never disappoint. Reviewing Paris Fashion Week street style, you can expect epic off the runway looks and moments of extraordinary creativity from maximalists, minimalists, and every style in between. I guess you could say the fashion month circuit has saved the best for last! One commonality among this group of Parisien showgoers? A penchant for the most classic of French girl style accessories, the foulard.

A handful of PFW attendees—each with their own personal styles, we might add—incorporated a silk scarf into their looks. It didn’t matter how they dressed, be it a borrowed from the boys leather jacket to a hot pink working girl skirt suit, there was a handkerchief tied somewhere on their person.

We might be saying au revoir to fashion month, but it’s clear the foulard is here to stay. Pick one up that’s either vintage or new, and you’ll find there’s no shortage of ways to incorporate a silk bandana into your year-round wardrobe. Here, a delightful demonstration of the possibilities of the accessory, per the Paris Fashion Week street style set.

Scarf As Top

While this showgoer paired her scarf as a top with a trench and leather trousers, come summertime, you’ll be able to wear a scarf as a beach cover-up, in your hair, and by itself as a top.
