Style Tips On How to Wear a Scarf

Featured

Now that Spring has arrived, it’s finally nice to use a scarf as an accessory rather than as a tool to guard my face against the cold. Scarfs are a great way to add a pop of colour and texture to an outfit and there’s so many fun and different ways to wear them!

On one of the first warm days of the year my friend Kristen (check out her blog here) and I went for a walk and I brought my collection of scarves along. I discovered they are not only great to style, but also fun to take pics and play with.

Styling tips for scarves

Here are some style tips on how to wear your scarf this spring and summer.

Wrap It

How to wear a scarf as a headwrap

Wearing a scarf as a head wrap can be a great style addition to an outfit. It can also double as a handy accessory for when you’re having a bad hair day.

To get this look, I took the scarf and wrapped it around my head starting from the front. I crossed the ends of the scarf in the back and brought the ends to the side of my head. I twisted the loose ends into a bun and secured with a hair tie.

Belt It

Belt Your Scarf

Throw a scarf around your shoulders and secure with a belt. I love doing this during the warmer months because it looks like a vest and adds another light layer to the outfit. Let the loose ends hang, this can look super cute if your scarf has  fringed ends, or tuck the ends into the back of the belt.

Double It

How to wear 2 scarfs

Take your outfit up a notch by wearing two scarves at once. Use two scarves with varying colours or patterns and twist them together and wrap them around your neck.

Handle It

Enhance and add a touch of colour to your darker toned purse by wrapping a scarf around the handles of your purse. Simply tie a knot at one end of the handle, wrap the scarf around it and tie a knot at the other end.

5 Style Tips on How to Wear Coloured Jeans during Winter

Featured

During the colder months my wardrobe can sometimes be a bit drab. I tend to wear a lot of black and grey, while items like my coloured jeans shift to the back of my dresser. I came to this realization a few weeks ago when I met with my friend and fellow blogger Kristen (check out her blog Twenties and Fabulous). She was wearing a nice pair of coloured jeans, and they looked great.

Coloured jeans are a great statement piece for any season. It’s all about keeping your outfit in proportion since brighter coloured pieces are typically associated with spring or summer. You don’t want to look like your ready for a picnic when it’s the middle of February.

Here’s 5 tips on how to style and accessorize your coloured jeans during winter.

Over-sized Sweaters. Neutral coloured sweaters in black, grey, cream etc. balance out coloured jeans, while keeping you warm in style.

Hints of Leather. A top with leather accents, a leather vest, or accessories help chic up the look and add a wintery feel.

Fur it up. Nothing says winter like fur. Add a faux fur vest, scarf, or clutch to your look.
