"I'm really into neckerchiefs right now. I think I was somewhat subconsciously influenced by Marc Jacobs' Spring 2014
collection—it only occurred to me after senior beauty editor Maura Lynch asked if that was my inspiration—but something about a simple silk or cotton scarf wrapped choker-style (tied in front or in the back—dealer's choice!) around the neck feels eminently cool, super-fresh, and like a definitively downtown take on Parisian chic. I've been wearing mine with slouchy sweaters or form-fitting v-neck tees—anything goes, really, as long as the rest of my look has a tomboy touch, otherwise it can start to look (and feel!) a little fussy.
PS. I'm not the only one! Features editor Hayley Phelan recently styled hers with pale, boyfriend-fit blue jeans, a black tank and a sleek black blazer. Trust me: it was as awesome as it sounds." - Verena Von Pfetton, executive digital editor
