    BBcarnationanne Taylor Click on top title to open EtsyIf you need a breath of spring right now try one of cutest spring runway trends: the small, retro, neck scarf. Marc Jacobs tied small solid colored chiffon scarfs around the necks of his models. The look is very Laverne and Shirley – and cute! The retro squares were also seen in prints and silky solid in other collections. It’s a colourful and easy alternative to the season’s heavy statement necklaces. Adding one of these scarfs to dark sweater or the neckline of a dark suit or dress can lift your look.
