I constantly find myself staring in my closet trying to put new looks together. Sometimes I need to go shopping, but most times, it’s just a matter of being creative! Any time I add an accessory (like a scarf) I immediately feel like I have a whole new look without spending a dime. 😉 Read below to learn 6 ways to style a scarf and get those creative juices flowing.
Around your neck, duh!
This might seem like a no brainer, but so many people struggle with how to accessorize a simple sweater and jeans. It doesn’t take much to elevate a look, and a scarf is the perfect addition to any look. Cooler temps? Thicker scarf!
As a Knot
This style works best for light-weight scarves. I like to incorporate this style in early fall or spring to add another color or pattern to my outfit.
Traditional Neck Loop
I’ve shown it here, but if I were to truly style this for an outing, I’d probably choose a thicker scarf. Especially in colder months, I love looping a cozy knit scarf around my neck one or even two times to create a whole other level of comfort.
The beauty of a think scarf like this is that you can actually tuck in the ends of the scarf to create an infinity loop. This means that you get several uses out of one piece of fabric!
As a Shawl
This styles reminds me of when I was in high school and I would bring a blanket from class to class to keep me warm. It was always so cold!
But in all seriousness, I think this is a very classy way to wear a scarf. It helps to have a wider piece of fabric, but you can use it with a thinner piece as well. Another great way to use this technique is when you don’t have a coat or jacket that pairs well with your evening look. I wear nice dresses to the symphony or ballet, and so I don’t have to wear a jacket that doesn’t match, I often use a shawl to keep me warm in the cold theater.
On a Handbag
Another great accessory hack! I love to tie a head scarf or similar onto my bag. It fills out my look without making the outfit appear busy. It’s also a great way to accessorize on a trip if you’re low on suitcase space. You can use the scarf with an outfit, on your handbag or even tied around your ponytail!
Pro Tip: This bag is reversible meaning you should pick a scarf that pairs well with both colors of the tote. That way you can style one bag, scarf and pair of pants several ways and just change your blouse!
