Scarves - wardrobe workhorse


If you're looking for sheer versatility, nothing beats a scarf.  Beyond the obvious, keeping your neck warm, there are the outfit making qualities.  Scarves can add color, texture and pattern to beef up your neutrals.  A print you might never wear in a dress or blouse can work in a scarf.  Not sure what to do with it?  Scarf tying videos abound on youtube.  Get adventurous and add a scarf ring. Yes, there are videos for that too. 

Every clothing budget has room for a few scarves.  Cashmere blends are heaven in cold weather.  Silk chiffon can transition right into summer heat since they feel weightless around your neck. Scarves can be worn so many ways, or even tied around the handle of a handbag.  How about using a small scarf tied around your wrist as a bracelet?  Tie one on your ponytail.  Drape one around your neck in place of a necklace. Thread one through your belt loops.  Scarves come in so many sizes.  No other item gives you so many options. 

Still not convinced?  Look back at the icons of style who wore them well. Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn knew the elegance of the scarf.  Need I say more?

Also a lover of scarves over here! I have always had some in my closet, but have bought more over the past year. Love that you can throw different colors and prints over a simple black dress and it can really spice up the outfit!
