Here are five scarf types and the ways you can wear them to your advantage.
Draped around the neck and in a vibrant colour, skinny scarves, in a silky material can make a black or navy work suit really come alive. Avoid tying them under the chin as this tends to make your neck look shorter - rather loosely drape.
Worn in the neck of a shirt or blouse they add a dash of colour! This look is really popular with lovers of vintage styles. These scarves can also be tied around your hair for a 1940s look.
Not the type your gran used to wear after a shampoo and set! Think Audrey Hepburn, think glamour! Headscarves can provide the perfect frame to your face in a colour that flatters your skin and eyes an in a soft material they are useful for holiday wear and chilly evenings.
4. Oversized Scarves
More flattering if you’re a bit taller as they can swamp a small frame. Worn with a mid-length dress or trousers these can look great - it’s all about balance. As an extra layer use instead of a coat or jacket, in a pretty pattern and colour – this will brighten up a plain or dark outfit. Go for shades of soft pastels or bright jewel tones.
5. Cosy Shawls
Usually made of a warm soft and usually a knitted fabric again they can replace a jacket. Eveningwear looks more glamorous when you drape a pretty shawl around your shoulders.
So as you can see scarves are a really useful addition to your clothes collection and can give a different look to an everyday outfit without costing a fortune.
