I’m a real sucker for a colorful scarf! Small ones, large ones, skinny ones, old ones, new ones – I’m not prejudice. They’re like jewelry. They add that bit of detail that makes a bland outfit really pop. And the ways in which you can wear a scarf are absolutely endless-around the neck, as a belt, headwear, halter or tube top (unless you’re built like Dolly) or to dress up a handbag, just to name a few. Grace Kelly even used one as a sling to support her broken arm.
Scarves can also be quite inexpensive. I’ve found some gorgeous scarves-silk, designer, with hand rolled hems-at yard sales and second-hand stores. One of my favorites was only $1.50! You can find that kind of cash in your couch cushion. The one used in the super easy style examples below is a 44×44 Cynthia Rowley scarf I picked up at TJ Maxx for $19.99.
Wear a scarf around your neck to draw attention up and emphasize your face.
Emphasize the smallest part of your midsection by using a scarf as a belt.
