Hello world. My name is Amy, and I’m a Scarf-aholic.
A scarf is without a doubt one of the simplest yet chicest of all accessories. Turn an ordinary outfit into a stylish ensemble by adding the perfect scarf. Wearing a scarf is often thought of as a winter fashion accent but with so many different shapes and fabrics, a girl can rock this trend year round… if done right.
I absolutely love how chic a scarf can make any outfit. Now, if you’ve read Simply Me’s “About me” page you already know that I live in sunny southwest Florida where our summer temperatures are commonly in the 90’s with 100% humidity. And yes I admit, I’m still Fit to be Tied. Now, I’m not going to lie, in my neck of the woods, sporting this fab accessory can be quite challenging and I’ve suffered a few fashion faux pas myself. So, if you experience sweltering summers like I do, don’t pack them away just yet…listen up.
First of all, don’t be afraid to think outside the neck. Scarves can be worn as a sarong to cover your bikini, as a belt or even as an accessory for your bag. Wear them tied in your hair, as a headband, work them into a braid, or even as a bandana. Loosely draped at the neck can work in summer as well…but the key is to make sure the material is light so it won’t be hot and heavy. Stick with a lightweight fabric for summer and bright colors are always best to compliment your summer glow.
Now, once the temperatures dropped…Game on. That’s right my friends, Scarf Season is in full effect. They keep you warm, giving you a cozy 'winter wonderland' feeling. It's also a great outfit addition to looking stylish during the freezing months (ok, maybe not “freezing” let’s go with “chilly” for my fellow Florida girls). While a chunky knit is sometimes just the ticket for warmth, using oversized and voluminous scarves made of lightweight fabric can give your winter look a sophisticated lift.
So no matter the season, scarves are the perfect addition to any outfit; an absolute must-have for every girl’s wardrobe. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled a jeans and tee-shirt outfit together with a colorful scarf, it gives a comfy casual outfit a little bit of fabulous! While a scarf is just an accessory it has the ability to transform your entire look! If you need help on how to tie a scarf I found this awesome, must watch, tutorial on YouTube; 25 different ways to tie a scarf by Wendy’s Look Book. Careful though…the next 4 minutes could very well result in the next….Scarf-aholic!!
'Til next time...
