Accessories Return This Fall & Winter

Fall/Winter 2013 will once again see the re-emergence of accessories. One of my favorites has always been a great scarf. 

Whether it's a great Gucci, Pucci, a museum quality Hermes,  or something with a rough ethnic vibe,  a scarf adds attitude and projects a chic image.

Surprisingly, women have told me they stay away from them because they are not sure how to style them.

The nonchalant French have always made it look so easy.

 Time to test the theory on American soil.

 I spontaneously handed a variety of scarves to a few of my FIDM students, as well as a group of well appointed Beverly Hills women at dinner, and asked them to make the scarf work with their outfits.

Each created a  unique style (in a few short minutes) that suited their comfort level and did so without much fuss.

 Give it try in front of your mirror and enjoy the results... and compliments!
