(To snob your friends call it a foulard print, scarf in french, the new trendy word to describe a scarf print)

The scarf print... scarf
The easiest way to adopt this trend is to wear a silk scarf (yes, that easy !). You might already have one in your wardrobe so there is no spending involved to be right on trend which is always a good thing for our credit card.

The scarf print blouse
Wearing a silk blouse with jeans seems to be the winning combo amongst fashion bloggers, wear a silk blouse with destroyed boyfriend jeans to be super trendy or with white jeans for a chic look to the office.

The scarf print shorts
Shorts are probably the most versatile way of wearing the scarf print. As you can see on the pictures below the scarf print shorts will look good with anything (if you style them right, bien sûr !). They are perfect with a simple white men's shirt as Rumi, with a sporty twist like my dear Jen or with a simple blazer as worn by E.

The scarf print shorts are definitely my favorite, and the options are endless. If you're into DYI projects you can easily transform an old scarf into a cool pair of new shorts. Check out how to do it by following Geneva's tutorial here.
The scarf print trousers
I have talked about the silk trousers in the blog a few months ago so I don't need to tell you how much I like these. Wear them with a simple top and a leather jacket and you're good to go !

The scarf print total look seems too risky in real life but on paper nothing can beat the head to toes foulard outfit worn by Kristin, right ?

Now, if you are falling for this trend, I would recommend that you go for affordable pieces unless you're going for the scarf. I'm not sure that foulard print trousers and shorts will still look very cool a few years from now so it's better not to invest your month's rent on a pair, right ?
What's your verdict, are you into this trend ?
As for me, I think I'm going to pass, or maybe I should use this as an excuse for splurging on an Hermès scarf which has been on my wishlist forever... Any thoughts ?
