You always look great in a white T-shirt and jeans, but you can spruce up your outfit with a silk scarf. You can also layer a T-shirt underneath a fitted blazer and add a long, loose scarf to soften the look. Whatever the case, adding a scarf to a T-shirt can give you several great looks that range from polished and professional to quirky and fun. Here are five different ways to pair up a scarf with a simple T-shirt.
Things You'll Need
- Various scarves
- Brooch or pin
Add a short, silk scarf to your favorite white T-shirt, dark denim jeans and black heeled boots. Simply tie the scarf (printed or in a vibrant color) around your neck so that the tied scarf edges just graze your collarbones. This easy, effervescent look takes you from lunch with the girls to casual Fridays at the office.
Give that same white T-shirt and jeans a more polished look by choosing a long, loose scarf (at least 24 inches in length) and pairing it with a fitted blazer. Just place the scarf around the back of your neck so that its two sides loosely hang on either side of your T-shirt and blazer. This look really takes shape with a printed scarf that adds a splash of color to your outfit.
Tie a long, printed scarf around your head like a headband for a fun, flirty look. Let the ends of the scarf hang down over the front and back of your T-shirt. Use a vintage scarf found at an antique or secondhand store for a chic, Bohemian flair.
Wrap a large scarf around your shoulders like a shawl on days when the weather is a little breezy or chilly. Fold a square-shaped scarf into a triangle and simply tie the two ends together over the front of your T-shirt. Wool scarves work beautifully for this look, especially since they add both style and warmth to your T-shirt outfit.
Loosely tie a long scarf around your neck so that the knot rests against the neckline of your T-shirt. This is a casual yet put-together look. Secure a brooch or vintage pin to the knot to add a splash of the unexpected to your outfit. The result is a sleek, sophisticated look that is set apart through your personal pin.
