I am so excited for this time of year, and the fashion that follows. I am just waiting for the weather to cool down just a smidge so I can wear layers, boots, tights, and scarves. But really I think its about time we bring scarves in, don’t you think? After all, scarves can really be worn any time of year as long as they’re lightweight enough to withstand the heat. I’ve been playing around with my favorite scarf and how to wear it, and I’m finding that its pretty versatile.
My favorite way to wear this is the usual wrap around the neck. The fringe makes such an awesome detail no matter how you wear it, but this is my favorite. Here, I layered it with a slightly bold necklace. I see no reason you can’t wear a necklace just because you’re wearing a scarf. In fact, I highly encourage it! It makes for a really unique look. (Midas, one of our kitties, had to make a little cameo on this blog post, he loves being outside.)
Not only can a scarf be a beautiful accessory, but it can also be a layer of its own! I thought of the pictures Jason and I snapped with Catherine Coons would be a great example of how this scarf was turned into an over layer. It appears to be like a shawl, or even a kimono because of the look of this particular scarf. I’m in love with the way it drapes over my shoulders so casually. Wearing it this way makes the fringe appear more dramatic too, which I like. Who knew a scarf could be so versatile? This is a whole fresh look for this little number.
Here you can see more clearly, I chose and even bolder necklace to complete the look. There is nothing up around your neck when you wear a scarf this way, so I think it was appropriate. I chose something that I thought would complement the ethnic look of the scarf/shawl.
Let me tell you, it was so extremely hot out that day. But this layer was perfect! An outfit just doesn’t look complete without a layer sometimes, and for this outfit it was the perfect cherry on top. It’s super lightweight, so it worked with the weather, and I didn’t feel silly wearing it. It is still a little hot out, and it doesn’t quite seem like fall yet, but I think starting to accessorize with scarves is a good way to ease into fall. (Another great accessory is a handsome man, apparently)
When putting together this post, I thought of the difficulties people have with scarves. A question I often get is how to wear a scarf or how to tie it. It seems like a simple thing, but it can actually get quite tricky when trying new ways. I came across this wonderful video that shows you 25 ways to wear a scarf in less than 5 minutes. I found it really helpful, and I found some new ways for myself!
