Your Most Flexible Fashion Accessory

The scarf has faded in and out of popularity over the years, but it has never really gone away. Speaking generally, it is one of the most classic accessories that lends itself to a number of different styles and forms. Most people tend to find just one way and wear it in that way. With such a great fashion accessory, you need to learn the different ways you can wear it so that you can dress up your look without spending more money.

Draped

 

The drape style creates a rather exotic look. You simply drape it over your shoulder and walk around with it resting there. If you’re worried about it flying away in the wind or something happening to it, all you have to do is use a belt to fasten it to your waste. Thin silk scarves work best here. Remember that you will want it to be wide enough to cover your shoulder for the maximum effect.

Pinned

Sometimes you just need a little covering when wearing one of those stunning Shoshanna dresses. One of the solutions is to take a scarf, place it over your shoulders, and pin it with a decorative pin. The pin acts as a fashion accessory too, allowing you the opportunity to further customize your appearance. When dealing with fashions similar to the general Vera Wang and Shosanna dresses, make sure that you choose a pin that complements and blends rather than takes all the attention to itself.

Knotted Around the Neck

The classic train robbers of the Old West used to knot handkerchiefs around their necks so that they could use the handkerchiefs to block out dust and smoke. Self’s Beauty Department describes this as being the new inspiration for the knotted neck trend that has started up this summer. The trick is to knot the ends together and then wear the knots behind the neck so that the front billows over the top. This is a fun style, and it works best with polka dots, one of the more common choices of the summer. But it should not be paired with a dress or a shirt that has a lot of embellishments on the front.

Loose Tie

Style Guru lists the loose tie as being one of the sexiest ways to wear a scarf. The key here is to choose a light weight and thin silk scarf. Then you put it around your neck and just tie it loosely. You don’t knot it. You just let it hang there. The beauty of it is that it creates a delicate fashion look that complements almost all dresses ranging from Shosanna dresses to the Cushnie Et Ochs.
