It always fascinates us how a simple accessory can be so versatile and stylish. For this reason one of our favourite styling tools for Winter is the fashionable and functional scarf!
Style up your outfit, stay cosy and transform your look with these 6 simple scarf styling techniques.
TIP Before you do embark on some styling fun always ensure your scarf:
- is in a colour that flatters your complexion and features i.e. warm or cool, high or low contrast, clear, muted or dusty
- compliments your body frame i.e. petite, medium, statuesque or long, short or even torso
- is in a pattern or print that makes you smile!
- can update or give a fresh look to your existing wardrobe items
This article we are showcasing one of our favourite “new in” check scarves that is perfect for every palette as it combines both warm and cool neutral tones.
Style 1 – The “Snood”
Great for those who want to create the illusion of a shorter torso, draw the eye to their upper body and show off their waist.
Style 2 – Long & Relaxed
If you need to add length to your upper body and elongate your torso, this style technique will create a vertical focus and give a “relaxed” look. Perfect for camouflaging a fuller bust and/or tummy too!
Style 3 – Looped & Long
A personal fav of mine (Jordi). A trick here is to have edges finish at different points to create shape and add angles to the body balance. Great style technique to “uneven” a silhouette that is even distance shoulder to hip/hip to floor!
Style 4 – Belted
This style isn’t an easy one as not everyone can wear waisted belts. If you are able to wear a belt, then feature this look in your wardrobe, if you cannot wear a belt the “Long & Relaxed” style is the way to go.
Style 5 – Wrapped Up
Fabulous for after 5 and evening wear as this look is chic yet warm! Your scarf can also be secured with another trending accessory – the vintage brooch!
Style 6 – Around A Bag
This styling tip is great for those days when you get hot, then cold, then hot again… wrapping a scarf around a bag is an easy way to add colour/print to your look and have an added warm layer in case you need it.
Happy scarf styling!
