How To Wear Scarves


Want to know the ulimate wardrobe weapon? Yes, that's right: The scarf. Consider it your spiked-stiletto, kind of like the fashion-version of your average, everyday switchblade. Next time you're breaths away from sauntering out the door, a buttermilk-sky mist of Chanel perfume frosting endlessly behind, make sure to never leave without being equipped with le scarf!

Accesorizing with scarves can definetly save your style. Perhaps you're fixated in front of your closet, Yves. St. Laurent-glossed-lips pursed, and eyes glazing over your pre-chosen outfit. Something's missing. We all get that feeling, don't we? Enter... the scarf to the rescue! When styled and furnished accordingly, scarves can swiftly revolutionize your ensemble into a completely new, revamped realm. People will instantly send you the envy-glares from across the street, special merci to your impeccable style. Be proud! 

To diffuse any concerns, yes, scarves can be worn any season of the year. Summer, spring, anything is possible as long as you know how to craft 'em into your wardrobe stylishly!

Look #1: Stay Fresh
Scarf - ModCloth | Tank - TheOutNet | Shorts - AE | Cardigan - Forever 21 | Sandals - Bizrate | Bangles - Oasis | Ring - Now Discount Shoes | 

If you're a newbie to "scarves+wardrobe" department, consider this outfit as a beginner experiment. It's a simple, effortless look, perfect for testing out in school, out with friends, the mall, anything oh so casual!  Investigate James Bond-style around in your dresser for your favorite pair of dark denim shorts (a sure staple for any fashionista!) Next, rummage for a white jersey tank, we're going for one that's relaxed, loose, and a little on the drapey side (a plain white tank used for layering is also acceptable). Tweak a pinch of a cream, soft cardigan for texture, and Greek goddess-esque sandals for daytime glamour. Finally, cast on a mint-toned scarf, along with a slew of classic jewelry. Tres facile!

Look #2: Wild Child
Scarf - House of Fraser | Shirt - Calypso-Celle | Jeans - Citizens of Humanity | Boots - Steve Madden | Bag - Lucky Brand | Bangles - Forever 21 | Ring - YesStyle | 

For those of you who are more willing to travel in a riskier territory, a zebra-print scarf may actually be your next closet BFF. A pattern like zebra-print is definetly eye-candy, and it's also a quick cinch to expertise into an ensemble. Zip-up in a pair of skinny dark-rinse jeans, and a breezy, casual white quarter-length tee (Urban Outfitters has great ones for a low price, so stock-up!) As for footwear, clad your feet in black leather boots, and backpack everything around with gray messenger bag to coordinate chicly with the neutral color palette. Of course, don't forget to execute properly with the zebra-print scarf! I went with simple metallic bangles for jewelry, and for the nescessary dart of color, a pink cupcake ring! Cupcakes + zebra prints, it is!

Look #3: Boho Fuse!
Scarf - Style Server | Dress - Delias | Jacket - TheOutNet | Boots - Topshop | Bangles - Nordstrom | Ring - Modcloth | 

Bohemian trends is adorable, and definetly extremely unique, fantastic to fuse cleverly with scarves. For this ensemble, pair a floral dress in light-toned colors with a chambray jacket, which by the way, is the hottest trend I've seen in a while! (If you haven't heard of the chambray trend, Google it ASAP! No chambray? Replace with your favorite blazer instead!) The periwinkle-blue of the jacket bouquets pleasingly with the dress's pink hues. Step into vintage-baptized ankle booties, and cape on a dark, maroon circle scarf! For a playful tease on accessorizing, slip on gold bangles, a toast ring, and little mouse earrings to coequal the color of the chambray. You're ready for a day out thrift-hunting!
