Work Style: Blue Velvet


I picked up these pants on yet another thrifting venture and thought they were just right for trotting through the melting (thank God!) snow.

Inspired by none other than Chuck Bass (who’s a young Heff if ever there was one), I used a colorful silk scarf as a cravat. I’ve only just begun to appreciate the versatility of scarves, and am now throroughly obsessed. It’s especially fun figuring out different ways to tie them–hello Neckclothitania!  Any other suggestions?
