The Scarf Print Trend

Florals are always big for warmer months, that goes without saying. But this spring, its close cousin, the scarf print, has taken over the fashion scene. Maybe it is the return of people wearing more silk scarves that has inspired designers to interpret these prints into clothing pieces.

I would possibly credit our current obsession with Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan for the revival of this fashion genre. The Brits (best exemplified by the late Princess Di) have always dressed “smart” in a button down or blazer with a silk scarf around their necks. And, of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Queen and her scarves tied around her head to save her hair; I personally would like to bring this trend to Alexandria to save my blowouts for an extra day or so.

Scarf prints tend to be a little more subtle and can either lean Bohemian or more regal. Whatever you chose, there is a scarf-inspired print out there this spring that will work for you.


  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
