Now is the perfect time to wear light scarves instead of heavy, thick scarves that we wrap ourselves in during the winter months. Silk and chiffon scarves are ideal, actually they are a year-round and a must-have accessory. They will add such a chic finishing touch to any office outfit.

Business Casual Tie Dye

You probably don’t think about wearing tie-dye to a business casual office. Normally neither do we, but we were inspired by May’s issue of Lucky Magazine. They featured accessories that range from preppy to ladylike and we couldn’t help but think how chic these items would look in your work wardrobe. We searched some of our favorite shops to find more styles perfect for your business casual office.

A loose knit cardigan looks chic over black trousers. Add a belt at the waist to give the look more structure. A more subtle tie dye works in a longer wrap cardigan. David Cline Woman Tie-Dye Wrap Cardigan is available in plus sizes. Gianni Bini “Theresa” Cardigan has a more preppy feel and looks chic with chinos.

Pleated Tie Dye Tunic, Ships 4/10

M.S.S.P. Charmeuse Tie-Dye Dress can be styled for the office with a demi-cami and 3/4 sleeve jacket. You can also layer this Gianni Bini “Justina” Knit Top under that same blazer to mix and match your favorite styles. A Pleated Tie Dye Tunic, Ships 4/10 is ideal in a tonal color palette.

We found a few scarves to add to your business casual work wardrobe this spring. Banana Republic Tie-dye jersey scarf is perfect for pairing with a tan trench coat. While Lucky Brand – After Shock Tie Dye (Moraccan Brown) – Accessories is a bolder look during your commute. Gap Lightweight tie-dye scarf is perfect for all day in the office.

We Got the Blues

2) One of the hottest trends lately is a cowl neck scarf. Turn Silk Road’s open weave smocked scarf into a cowl neck by wrapping it around your neck and tucking the ends underneath in the back.
