Week 6: Forget Me Knot ~ L’avion Pussy Bow

It’s Week 6 of the Business Chic Little Black Dress (LBD) Project and you have a chance to win a L’avion silk scarf illustrated by an Australian fashion illustrator!

Those of you following the BusiChic LBD Project, will know that I believe that scarves make a wonderful accessory that can be used in a multitude of ways to add functional style to one’s workwear. This week, we’re upping the ante in scarf luxury by styling one from L’avion in silk chiffon.

Step 1. Start with business chic basics like a LBD and crisp white shirt; note that a pant or skirt suit will also work well.
Step 2. Fold over your L’avion Menagerie illustrated by Sarah Hankinson scarf so that the leopard print edging is visible and place around under the collar of the white shirt and tie in a knot. I like to place the knot off-center as I find the final result is less twee when done that way 😉
Step 3. Tie L’avion silk scarf into a pussy bow. Et voilà! A chic pussy bow that has the added edge of bringing a tasteful dash of leopard-print into the office!

L’avion is offering two voters the chance to win their own silk scarf from the new Flora & Fauna range. Your vote will put me in the running to win L’avion products but most importantly, meet Jo Scahill, the creator of L’avion. I much admire how Jo has collaborated with a different Australian artist to create a unique print for each of the scarves in this collection.The vibrant Bouquet scarf was illustrated by Spiros Halaris, lady-like Plume was illustrated by Kelly Smith and the leopard-print-chic style I was sent to work with, Menagerie illustrated by Sarah Hankinson.

What do you think of my styling efforts this week?
