From O'Shaughnessey by Sara Griot, the Molly scarf is 100 percent cashmere and incredibly lightweight. "It's a perfect accessory to add to dress up an everyday outf t," Griot says. "Customers love it! I think scarves have become more of a statement piece, not really an accessory always meant for warmth. Women are wearing beautiful scarves for the sole purpose of dressing up an outf t—so more fashion than function." T e Molly scarf in ivory with charcoal contrast has an MSRP of $238. In the fall, it will also be available in gray, fuchsia and dark blue, all with charcoal, Griot says. "Inspiration for the line's scarf colors and patterns came from the beautiful fabri cs that we're using for the spring and fall 2015 collections," she says.
