No one does chic and simple like the New York-ers, and this all black-look with a statement scarf is certainly no exception. To recreate this New York Fashion Week look, invest in a few wardrobe staples: slim fitting black pants, a black blazer and a black sweater. Not only will these items allow you to re-create this hot look, they will make up the basis of a classic and timeless wardrobe.

Fashion Editors state that the perfect look consists of a mixture of timeless and on-trend pieces. Add a sprinkle of on-trend Seventies Bohemia to this classic look wrapping the exotic silk scarf around your neck. Now stand tall, smile and wait for those street style photographers to snap away!

Why do Swedish girls always look so darn stylish? Is it something in that cold, Scandi air or in the water? (If so, where can we buy a bottle?) This Swedish fashionista has taken the nations’ laid back style and added a sporty edge with an oversized basketball tee. To chic-up this otherwise masculine piece, top off your tee with a slim-fitting leather jacket and some pin stripe skinny jeans.

The undeniable perfection of this street-style look lies in the perfection juxtaposition of its masculine and feminine elements. High-shine, pointed black pumps are contrasted with a army-esque, cargo-print scarf draped femininely over the shoulders. The geometric print scarf has this masculine-meets-feminine vibe down to a tee!

No one quite does vintage styling like those in London town! And can you get any more retro than this floral scarf layered over this swing coat? Your Nan would certainly approve. Get your Brit on by layering an open swing coat over your trusty jumper dress. Next, wrap the oh-so-pretty floral paisley silk scarf around your shoulders and belt. Highlight with some vintage style round sunnies placed on the center of the belt. Russian doll optional.

If I gave you five seconds to write down all the words that enter your mind when you think of ‘Parisian Style’, I could bet my bottom dollar that ‘chic’ will be on that list! A colorful scarf is the perfect way to add interest to a classic and chic dress. To copy our inspo look above, don your gray sweater dress with bare legs and wrap sandals. Next, inject some fashion-week-friendly quirk with mirrored Wayfarers and a vibrantly printed silk scarf. We think that the exotic silk scarf ticks all the boxes of Parisian style.

Canada is not only the land of beautiful nature, it certainly has a lot of stunning street style too! For a frost-appropriate and timeless look, layer a camel coat over a LBD. As Karl Lagerfeld once said, ‘one is never over-dressed or under-dressed in a little black dress.’ Add a casual edge with opaque tights and lace up shoe boots. Top off your look with a leopard print scarf, such as the exotic print scarf; a bit of print always adds an extra dimension!

This Japanese, street-style look is cute enough to make your run around screaming ‘kawaii!’ at the top of your lungs! The key to successfully clashing floral prints, as seen on the above photo, is all in the size of the prints. Opt for a dress with small and dainty floral prints in neutral tones and top with a bold and colorful floral print scarf, such as the floral wool scarf. The small print on the dress acts as a less-distracting, yet complimentary, backdrop to the larger print on the statement scarf.

To avoid looking like some sort of tacky fun fair, keep the rest of the look plain and simple. Brown, leather shoes and accessories are a great choice.

To steal Sydney blogger Zanita’s style, add a printed scarf to an on-trend Seventies print tea dress. Pop a brown leather belt on top of both the scarf and dress to blend them seamlessly. For the ‘Fashion Blogger TV’ star’s effortless look, choose a scarf in a simple print and in a palette of one or two colors. The mystic branches wool scarf is simple, yet stylish and won’t distract from your dresses’ pretty prints. Add beachy waves and a saddle bag and pretend that you woke up looking this perfect. We won’t tell anyone, we promise!

India’s fashion capital saw an aurora of color at its last Fashion Week. We love the laid-back, ethnic vibes of this printed pant and stellar scarf combo and it’s easier to recreate than your Mum’s mac and cheese recipe! Take a plain, white tee and add a pair of printed cotton pants. Accessorize with a exotic-print scarf that co-ordinates with the color of your pants. Yes: It’s really that simple!
