If you are on a tight budget like most people are, adding a scarf will make your wardrobe look plentiful even if you wear the same outfit over and over again. Adding a scarf can update your look, making people think you have a whole new wardrobe even if it is just the scarf you have added! There are many ways to wear your scarf, depending upon your outfit and the style of scarf.
Hacking Knot: Using an oblong scarf, fold it lengthwise in half. Drape it around your neck, and then pull the ends through the loop and tighten. This can be used on colder days, use with a sweater or coat. This style can give an elongating and slimming look.
Ascot: Fold a square silk scarf on the bias. Place around your neck then flip the ends over each other. You can either leave the ends out or tuck them into a V-neck shirt or sweater. This style can give you a regal look especially if worn with a blazer.
Neckerchief: Fold a small square silk scarf on the bias, and then wrap it around your neck. Tie the ends in a knot. You can wear this style with a V-neck sweater, a blouse with collar with two upper buttons opened, or a round neck blouse giving them a sportier look.
Wrap: Place an oversize square or oblong around your shoulders or just below. Throw one end over a shoulder or flip the ends over each other. This can give you a sophisticated look. You can wear this on top of a turtleneck shirt or wear it with a nice dress like a shawl.
Buy scarves in different colors, shapes, fabric materials and designs. Buy at least three for every season. That is only twelve pieces for the whole year. You can buy inexpensive ones at discount stores or wait until they go on sale at your favorite department stores.
Do not tie scarves too tight arund your neck.
