Skinny by Jessica Elliot Forest Scarf — As Seen On Leighton Meester
Though I generally associate the Skinny by Jessica Elliot brand with affordable, edgy jewelry like open-ended floating rings; neon-tinged, two-toned, enamel bangle bracelets; domed beaded rings; groovy hammered metal earrings; and enamel-coated, color-blocked, two-finger rings; this fun-loving accessories label also offers belts, hair barrettes, key chains, scarves, and other lively trinkets.
While running to the Gossip Girl set, actress Leighton Meester accessorized a striped, heather-and-white cardigan with the Skinny by Jessica Elliot Forest Scarf in Cream ($60 at SkinnyStyle.com). The hand-silkscreened piece features an original print consisting of bushy trees — some with long branches and tiny birds sitting atop them, and others with perfectly rounded tops bearing fresh fruit — and squirrels, robins, and lovable creatures prancing about nearby, creating the type of whimsical scenario you’d affiliate with Bambi-like tales.
Made of 100% cotton voile, the scarf has a semi-sheer quality and a soft texture that makes it perfect for layering, particularly as we transition from summer to autumn.
