As the seasons change, we look for ways to freshen up our wardrobe. One cost-effective way to spice things up is finding new ways to wear what we already have. Or invest in a multifunctional piece that you will wear often- whether it’s a statement pattern that becomes your signature for the season, or a neutral that goes with everything.
The scarf trend has proven it is here to stay; and during the fall these versatile, practical pieces really shine. The standard wrap, the cozy blanket scarf, and the easy infinity are wardrobe staples, but you do not want to be wearing the same old all the time. Here are four ways to wear a scarf you probably haven’t tried, but should!
The Second Vest
This might be our new favorite trick. A few simple ties and your go-to scarf transforms into an easy-to-wear vest that adds dimension and drama to your beloved fall wardrobe. Want the look of an oversized cardigan, but not quite ready for the warmth? This is the perfect compromise!
The Quick Fix
Fall weddings, dinner parties, or even date nights; you want to look your best in that sleeveless dress, but always wind up feeling chilly. Turn your scarf into a shawl that will stay on and keep you warm on crisp autumn evenings.
The Statement Scarf
Flip everything you know about scarves on its head. Use thin, lightweight scarves as a head wrap to hide a bad hair day, or just make a statement.
Try new things and get creative, but no need to reinvent a classic. Don’t overthink it, simply loop a scarf around your neck and get ready to take on the day.
