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