- Pashmina scarf – a little shop in Romania
I recently picked up this sparkly orangey pashmina in a little shop here in Romania. What better outfit to add it to than this black dress and purple cardi combo, which gives this gold-threaded orange beauty the perfect chance to pop.
After putting it on and creating a cowl-neck collar with it, I decided that it was just begging to be belted. Now it’s become sort of a joke that we here at academichic like to belt anything and everything, but until today, I had not yet dared the belted-scarf-look. In this case, the largesse of the pashmina and the way it it layed due to its volume and size, belting it just made a whole lot of sense to me. It fused the pashmina with the cardi resulting in a collared top as such. I think I may have to give this belted-scarf look more tries in the future.
What do you think? Have you tried the belted scarf yourself this season? Do you ever find yourself thinking, ‘hi, my name is ___ and I’m a compulsive belter’ ? If so, you’re not alone! S.
