Just because summer is approaching doesn’t mean you have to put your scarves at the back of your closet. Even though you might think it’s too hot to wear them, scarves are one of the chicest and most versatile pieces of summer accessories. Need proof? Influencers and celebrities alike have been spotted wearing them in a variety of creative ways, including headscarves, tops, and everything in between.
How can you describe a modern women’s wardrobe? Is it full of crisp office wear or slouchy self-employment separates? Does she wear floral in the spring or stick to unisex silhouettes? The options are as diverse as women themselves, making it almost impossible to identify a single set of staples that are foundational to everyone. And yet! Some things never change. A pair of razor-sharp black heels look just as fiercely stylish as they did in the 1980s, and my time travelling sources tell me black heels will be wildly en-vogue in the 2080s too. If we try to pick out the keystones of a modern woman’s wardrobe, the picture that emerges is a little bit serious and a little bit flashy, and a little bit devil-may-care-cool. So if any of you modern women need help shopping for basics, well I’ve done the legwork for you.
