The Neck Scarf

In typical fashion form…everything old is new again…and the neck scarf is back.

Well at least it is in Europe.  It’ll be interesting to see if the trend arrives here in Australia for spring and summer.

Just like a belt, shoes, handbags and glasses, a scarf is a quick, easy and relatively inexpensive way to update your wardrobe.

I like it and I think I’ll give it a go…again.  (You might recall I wore a scarf around my neck to work and this happened)

Really what’s not to love about a trend that was embraced and worn, back in the day, by  Audrey, Grace, Lauren or Jackie.

Imagine adding a red scarf to your had for years chambray shirt.  The shirt takes on a completely new and different look.

Adding a scarf to some of your old favourite basics is just like putting some new cushions on your couch.  It can reinvent the look of the piece.

Scroll through the below photos and see the impact the scarf has in each.  Try to visualise how different each outfit would be without the scarf.  Even the simplest pieces become interesting with the addition of this piece of fabric.

One thing to keep in mind with wearing scarves is, like everything, you want the scarf to be something you love.  You want the fabric &/or pattern to represent your style.   For example, is a scarf (given to you twenty years ago by your aunt) with tiny pink teddy bears really you?   Don’t just pull it out and wear it, thinking – that’ll have to do.
