The Keffiyeh Trend!

It’s A Neck Thing

The New Fashion Accessory - The Keffiyeh

keffiyeh, neck scarf, scarf trends, printed scarves, neck wraps, celebrity trends, accessory trends, fall scarves, winter scarves, Arab scarf, Balenciaga scarf, ashley olsen style, sienna miller style, kirsten dunst styleIt’s a new season, and a new accessory obsession, and it’s not what I expected. It’s not shoes or a bag; it’s a fashioned-up version of the humble Keffiyeh (Arab scarf). You might remember it as a style staple from the ‘80s - think Bananarama.

Well, last year the traditional Keffiyeh in fun colors was the "his ‘n’ hers" trendy nu-rave scarf of choice. It looked best worn folded diagonally and tied back to front, creating a V-shape which all the coolest girls tucked their hair into. I thought the trend had died, but somewhere along the line, it’s had a fashion remix and been given a new lease of life.

It started with Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, who reworked the plain Keffiyeh into multi-colored, chain and coin dripping, multi-ethnic inspired scarves for his 2007 collection. There are now already 30 people on the waiting list for the new $2000 ‘Cheich Tricolore’ scarf.

Celebs and the Keffiyeh

Working the look this fall is Sienna Miller; she favors a basic black and white one, but has just bagged herself a Louis Vuitton one in this season’s tobacco color. Kirsten Dunst is also a fan, while the Olsen twins wear theirs all the time casually slung over the shoulder young Hollywood style.

I was out shopping the other day in London and spotted versions available in River Island and Urban Outfitters, and I am afraid I bought not one, but three. I couldn’t help it. And it seems that every fashion girl worth her salt has followed suit.

How to Wear the Keffiyeh

Wear them indoors, thrown over a simple T-Shirt or dress for an effortless fashion statement. Or make like Balenciaga, where scarves were worn with a cute blazer (another must have) and jodhpurs or jeans.

Get yours now - you know your fall/winter ‘07 wardrobe won’t be complete without one!
