Trend Alert: Scarf Prints 101


We have seen a lot of experimentation when it comes to florals, animal prints and stripes. But this season we saw a fresh burst of colourful motifs known as the scarf print trend. If you are still living in a cave and never heard of this term, let us enlighten you. As the name suggests, the prints have been inspired by vintage-inspired silk scarf designs.

So, where did it all start? In February 2019, at the inauguration of the British Design, Richard Quinn presented her Autumn/Winter’18 collection where the outfits showcased silk scarf designs, complete with matching headscarves. The ensembles got the approval from Queen Elizabeth II as she handed him the best designer award. It was then that other top designers took to the trend and the rest is history.

Outfits designed in patchwork prints, knot works and paisley patterns were seen at the runaways of Balenciaga, Burberry, Marine Serre, Ferragamo, Toga, Versace, Gucci, Dries Van Noten and Jacquemus. Scarf-print blouses, skirts, paperbag trousers, asymmetric dresses, longline shirts and a plethora of other designs were spotted everywhere. The trend soon caught on with high-street fashion houses like Zara and Asos as well, where you can get them at reasonable prices.

The best part about the trend? It’s versatility. You can pair the shirt with solid-coloured trousers for work, pick a maxi dress when heading for an evening soiree. Scarf prints have already taken over the fashion world by storm and are soon going to be a fav street style in India as well. Let’s take a look at where you can buy one from.
