How to Wear Scarves to Accent Your Wardrobe

Are you looking for an accessory that can add a splash of color to your wardrobe, be worn in a myriad of different styles and look equally as good with a sundress or a turtleneck and jeans? And would it be nice if celebrates were wearing this magical accessory as well? Then it's time to consider the fashionable scarf.

Scarves are classic accessories that are showing up in all the fashion capitals of the world, including Paris, New York or California. They come in fabrics from silk and cashmere, to cotton and acrylic. Their shapes range from simple squares to long, plush fringe trimmed strips. Scarves are not only attractive and stylish accessories, but they're functional as well.

A thin light weight square scarf can be folded into a triangle and worn around the neck with the ends tied in back. To give it a less western-cowboy look, attach the tails together with a scarf pin, or tuck the tip down under the neck of a blouse. This is a great way to make a low-cut summer top transition into fall and winter. Add a coordinating blazer, a pair of long metallic earrings and even jeans will look dressy.

A narrow rectangular scarf is a great way to accentuate a summer or winter jacket or blazer, and add color and interest to a neutral business ensemble. While a wide scarf in cashmere or silk can add a touch of sophistication to a sundress or t-shirt.

Hand-knit scarves have come a long way from the heavy itchy results of grandma's knitting needles. Today designer knit scarves come in lacy designs made of specialty yarns such as pillow soft baby alpaca and ribbon infused silk blends.

Hollywood stars use long knit scarves to pull their outfits together or add a splash of color to an otherwise monochromatic ensemble. Try winding a knit scarf loosely around the neck and letting the ends hand down the front for a slimming effect, or wrap it around the shoulders to dress up a trendy shift.

When it comes to scarves, the more interesting and unusual the better. A few places to look for unique styles and patterns are specialty or ethnic shops and knit boutiques. Even thrift stores can be a treasure trove of interesting possibilities. When shopping, it's important to be aware of quality. Look carefully for snags, even in new scarves, and when buying handmade items, be certain that the maker is skilled in their craft.

A beautiful and rich colored scarf is a classic accessory that never goes out of style.
