Vintage-inspired scarves and silky scarf-like prints were all over the fall/winter ’18 runways. Here’s how you can work them into your wardrobe.

From Jacquemus to Saint Laurent, it seems like all of the world’s top designers were exploring the same flea market when they were designing fall/winter ’18. The vibe on the runway was part modern maximalism, part grandma — a juxtaposition we love.


It’s an easy trend to embrace too — printed silk shirts and dresses are about as forgiving as fashion gets, and no gym-honed bod is required to tie a silky something around your neck or wrist.

It also doesn’t need to be expensive to look expensive. While we wouldn’t say no to Dapper Dan’s Gucci pocket square or a classic Hermès Carré, you’re sure to find something just as beautiful (and original) in your local second-hand store.


At Dannijo, vintage has always been part of the agenda — silk scraps, scarves and ties provide endless styling potential, whether they’re looped through the belt loops of your favorite jeans or nonchalantly tied to the strap of a leather bag.

This season we’ve worked our favorite printed silks into jewelry too, from Liberty fabric-wrapped hoops to silver neckpieces woven with contrasting floral braids. It’s an aesthetic that works as well with your oldest denim as it does with a vintage tea dress.


Here, we’ve compiled our favorite scarf-inspired new season finds, but the styling potential is truly endless. Show us how you’re wearing the look by using the hashtag #Dannijo.

Continue the party with late-night drinks at Parker & Lenox, a speakeasy that regularly flies musicians in from New York or Buenos Aires to perform at weekends, and for salsa dancing, Club San Luis in Roma Sur is an experience in itself. It has a 20-piece live band, and the dancing is phenomenal.
