Scarf season

The cooler weather has revived the favorite fall accessory.

Gone are the days you can walk out of the house showing off your bare arms and legs. Now that it’s getting chillier and fall is officially here, our new best friend and fashion accessory, the scarf, can come out of hibernation.

A scarf adds that needed “oomph” to someone’s outfit. Boutique employees in Syracuse and Syracuse University students tend to think so too. Some Girls Boutique on Marshall Street has a section just for scarves.

SU Senior Roz Amirfazli, 21, and employee of Some Girls for more than three years, said scarves add a “pop of color” to a look.

"I love scarves because they can make or break an outfit,” she said. “Our scarf craze begins in the end of October and goes all the way through April.”

Mali Golomb-Leavitt, a freshman psychology major, fashions a long, knitted scarf on the quad as she studies.

Her co-worker, Steph Curtis, 18, an Onondaga Community College freshman, agreed. “A scarf can differentiate you from other people,” she said. “It can make a boring outfit look really good.”

The boutique has a variety of patterned, bright and pastel colored scarves. Amirfazli also said animal print scarves are making a come back.   

Students at SU are also gearing up for the chillier weather. For freshmen like  Stephanie Conn, 18, who hail from warmer states like Georgia, scarves haven’t been a priority in the past.

“I’ve never really been a scarf kind of girl,” she said. “But I don’t mind having to wear them, because they give an outfit a better look.”

Freshman Shanaria Elder, 19 wears scarves often. “I just love them because they’re so comfy,” she said. “But they also make an outfit pop.”
