I am a scarf aficionado.
From the moment I saw my Grandma Lory (my number style icon!) don her silk kerchief around her neck when I was child, I was hooked on this fashion ornament! It’s just a simple piece of cloth, and yet it can amazingly transform an outfit.Whatever one wears, whether it’s a staple jeans and a shirt, wearing a scarf elevates the entire ensemble a few notches up!
Because of its versatility, the scarf has become a staple in my signature look. I probably own over fifty pieces, half of it I am inherited from my beloved Grandma. Yet despite the mass collection I can’t stop perusing the boutiques for the latest selections. I am obsessed!
Now I do know a lot of women who own scarves, yet are afraid to wear them. And the others that do use them limit themselves to putting them on only in the Fall. Why? French women wear these neck wraps all year round. And who wouldn’t want to follow their style?!!
See below for my favorite selections ofthe latest bright and beautiful scarves from mainstream shops, such as H&M, Mango, Zara, Juicy Couture, Banana Republic, and the like. And very recently, Stella and Dot launched their first scarf collection as part of their Fall 2012 line. The rayon wraps are beautiful and bright, with the hues dark blue, turquoise green, poppy orange, fuschia pink, and leopard brown.
With Stella and Dot’s recent release, they also created a really cute video on How to Wear a Scarf: 10 Ways, as demonstrated by the New York Stella and Dot Design Team lead by Chief Creative Office Blythe Harris.
Have a look see and study the many chic ways you can wear it! Then head out over to your closets and bring out these neck wears and practice how to tie them!
