Beautiful Scarves on the Forecast

By February 24, 2015Blog

To say that New York City has been on the “chilly” side these past few weeks is probably the understatement of 2015 so far. And we’re not even going to mention the snow in Boston and cold, cold temperatures everywhere. We know that Winter certainly came late to the East Coast this year, and it’s been the general consensus here that today’s snowy streets, sans sleighbells and the promise of holiday cheer, are not welcome, particularly since we are – believe it or not – on the cusp of Spring.

Yes, it’s true: Spring *is* coming, and it will one day soon be time to strut down the street in cheerful, charming colors and lighter garments.

So what quick and effective wardrobe adjustments can you make to ease into Spring – – BUT still keep warm?

Easy: select and wear a new, unique scarf.

At Vintage India NYC, we’ve got you and your chilly neck covered with scarves in gorgeous colors and comforting cotton. Not only will one of these cheerful scarves update that tired winter coat, but they will be the perfect accessory to – remember these? – Spring clothes.

For instance, this orange scarf makes a great contrast to darker clothing – think, heavy Winter materials – and it also inspires thoughts of warm sunrises, golden afternoons and the charming way that the light shimmers and reflects across the city on a hot summer night:

For a more vintage vibe, this Phulkari scarf features gorgeous embroidery and cheerful mirrored sequins guaranteed to spark a smile. It was made between the 1930s and the 1950s:

And as an added bonus, this scarf can make a beautiful wrap – as pictured here. Maybe it will also be the perfect accessory for next year’s Oscar party or the Oscars themselves?
