Before summer comes to an end (because apparently it does that in New York), there's one more trend I've been eyeing to try: the scarf top. From "napkin tops" to halterneck styles to knotted scarves, the trend comes in many variations with one common goal of offering up minimal coverage in maximum heat. While traditional scarf patterns like paisley can easily be paired with jeans and cutoffs for a free-spirited feel, simpler scarf tops are surprisingly sleek when worn with minimalistic bottoms and accessories. Find the version that best suits your style, below.
