November is upon us, and even though some of us may still be stuck in the heat, fall trends are making their way into our wardrobes. Many people associate scarves with Winter, but you really can pair a scarf with any outfit and any season! Scarves are a great accessory for any outfit. They are versatile and work well with everything from work attire to a Friday night outfit. Make them work for whatever weather you are in today!
In the Heat
A light airy scarf can be a great accessory to a cute top with shorts or a skirt for brunch or an afternoon date. Picking a lace or linen fabric scarf will keep the look and feel of your outfit cool and fresh.
While black is always a safe color, try branching out to a soft color like pink or lilac. These can be paired with a dark colored top for contrast to bring a summery feel to your outfit. Instead of wearing a solid colored scarf with a patterned shirt, try wearing a floral patterned scarf with a plain shirt to bring another dimension to an outfit. Experimenting with scarves is an easy way to expand an otherwise plain wardrobe and give you many new options.
In the Cold
Of course scarves aren’t just an aesthetic accessory. For Fall and Winter scarves, try a fabric like cotton, wool or even a home-made knit. While there are many ways to tie or wrap a scarf, the infinity-wrap has been trending.
Fall is a great time to wear darker colored scarves; blacks, browns, even maroons. Mustard yellow and dark greens are also great options for adding color and dimension to your outfit. You will also see more plaid and striped scarf combos during the season.
Along with wearing scarves around your neck, you can use bandanas and small silk scarves for bracelets, hair wraps and even ties for your purse. There are so many options to dress up outfits or transform your look from 9-5 meetings to weekend fun. Scarves are a great way to add new and fun colors to your wardrobe you might not usually consider. Expand your outfit reach by pairing fun prints with your normal plain shirts and a pair of jeans. It really is that easy to expand your fashion and look.
