Polaroid is pretty hot right now, with Urban Outfitters and Lady Gaga touting the instant film. For our part, we're fans of Philippe Roucou's Polaroid scarves. The 100-percent silk squares are printed with photographic images and surrounded by that instantly recognizable white border.
We love scarves for covering up bad hair days or adding some interest to a plain outfit, but they can go grandma really quickly. These take an interesting, arty perspective on the medium with photos of a city skyline, an unmade bed, or pretty plants. Unfortunately, at around $435, they aren't really any less expensive than Hermès.
