5 Fresh Ways to Wear Scarves this Summer

5 Fresh Ways to Wear Scarves this Summer

Scarves? In Summer? Are you mad? Not when they're light, luxurious and effortlessly chic. Silk scarves can completely change an outfit, regardless of the season. So we sat down with Lillle Toogood, Founder of Good & Co Scarves - New Zealand's hottest accessories brand - to get her tips on how to wear a scarf in Summer.

Lillie’s background in graphic design is evident in her incredible scarf creations. Each Good & Co piece is based on a photograph she’s taken on her travels. She then manipulates the image to create her eye-catching scarves. Since starting the brand in 2011, Lillie has become recognised as a front-runner in accessory design. We adore this brand, and we know you will too!

Here's Lillie's tips on Summertime scarf-wearing. Click each image to shop.

  • Tie around the neck (not too tight) and knot to finish, ensuring the ends sit flush with the collarbone rather than sticking up
  • Wear to brunch with the girls.

  • This oh-so-elegant look is perfect for afternoon drinks or lunch with the in-laws.
