Neutral silk scarves coordinate with many outfits and are appropriate for evening wear, professional attire and even the beach. Gray and brown are your friends if they are found in silk scarves. We tend to think of gray as the somber garb of depressed people. Not so with silk which transforms gray to silver and ochre to gold. (Okay...so ochre isn't really neutral, but it is a neutralized yellow.)
This silk chiffon scarf is made with many shades of brown, beige, tan, black--using human skin tones as the inspired palette. Coordinated with a black dress and a leather jacket, the scarf itself makes the outfit.
This scarf wavers on the line between neutral and color. The border is a warm orange brown. The black background sets off the design elements which are shades of wood --mahogany, spruce, maple with gold, ochres and silver. The inspired palette for this scarf is the orchestra.
This scarf is predominantly black, with a pattern made with beige, gray and unexpected turquoise. Coordinated with a gray sweater, the turquoise accent livens up the whole look.
Wear friendly neutrals to add sophisticated accents and surprising detail to every outfit.
