A classic in a fabric like this sheer silk Burberry plaid is an instant update

Heading into this holiday season, fashion savvy ladies will be reaching for a scarf. The right scarf can give your look an instant update and become a style signature.  This fall, designers gave this classic accessory a twist with unusual colourations, textures, and embellishments. 

One of the most unusual and beautiful collections is by designer Dries Van Norton.  His soft knitted alpaca scarves are fancifully beaded. The look is luxurious and cozy. You can find a selection of Dries Van Norton’s bejeweled scarfs at Barney’s New York. They are priced from $660. 

Rendering a classic pattern in a sheer fabric gives it a fresh new look.  Burberry’s Check Silk Crepon Scarf is large gossamer rectangle. It looks perfect wrapped around your neck with jeans and a great leather jacket, or draped around the shoulders of your favourite sheath.  The scarf comes in different coloured plaids and sells for $325.  AEO Sparkle Plaid Loop Scarf is at steal for $20.  The large sheer beaded rectangle combines both trends._Dragonfly Selfridges
