The Beauty of Scarves
My newest fashion obsession is the scarf. When I started seeing scarves everywhere last fall I was so excited! I’ve collected them for years, but never really used them – until this season. In my humble opinion, there’s no better way to spice up a plain outfit than a scarf. A beautiful scarf can up the “wow” factor of jeans and a t-shirt to a compliment getting, mood brightening, sunshine on a rainy day type of outfit.
The question I’m asked most often is “how do I tie my scarf? I’ve been known to ask a friend if I can restyle her scarf and I’ve never heard “no”! It’s really not as hard as it looks, I promise. When I started adding scarves to my outfits I went to Pinterest for how-to’s and was not disappointed. There are several really good videos which actually walk you through tying, wrapping and general scarf wonderfulness.
I’ve purchased the majority of my scarves from Target (on sale), Sam Moon and Ross. I always watch for sales and rarely pay full price.
After years in the corporate world, I’m very fortunate to work in a jeans friendly office. Today’s outfit started as a plain sweater and jeans combo – I’ve used a scarf to up the fashion quotient and make it a little more interesting.
To the scarf!
