Compared to jewelry, fashion scarves are excellent accessories that elevate your style and expand your outfit combinations without looking flashy.
They add a colorful and trendy punch to any outfit, so they’re definitely a must in any fashionista’s wardrobe!
These are the 8 hottest scarf styles that will create a chic look no matter time of the year:
This is your scarf essential number 1 that will go with absolutely everything, no matter season, occasion or your personal style. Give a black pashmina scarf to a friend who doesn’t like fashion, and you’ll see them wear it for many years to come because it’s so versatile. The fabric isn’t too heavy to wear for summer, neither is it too light for colder months. Plus, you can wear it as an elegant shawl with a nice cocktail dress. It’s warm, soft, durable and gives a luxurious feel that most fashion scarves can’t provide you.
Chunky Wool Scarf
They’re perfect for cold weathers, keeping your neck warm and outfit fashionable. You can never go wrong with soft textured, solid colored chunky scarves in black, dark brown or cream white. They’ll match with all of your winter coats, jackets and knit sweaters; however you should add a new dimension to your outfit with ribbed and crochet style. Typical Fall/Winter colors like deep purple, deep red and mustard yellow are a must if you want to add a splash of color to your plain winter outfit.
It adds a special touch to classy office work outfits such as the dress pants-shirt or basic jeans-v-neck sweater combo. If you don’t want to look too matronly then make sure you don’t tie it tight around your neck. Let it hang around your neck or below the dress shirt collar. You can also wrap it to your handbag for a French chic style.
It’s a super-trendy classic scarf style that re-appears every season. Have in mind that if you have a large bust/round torso/or wide shoulders then you should be careful wearing a plaid scarf because it can make you look heavier on top. The best way to wear it is to let it hang loose around your neck (vertical line) and add something eye catching on your bottom half to balance out your top-heavy body shape.
Why not inject some glam-luxe in your style? The faux fur scarf is a red-hot trend for the colder season, adding a glamorous feel to any boring outfit. The best way to wear it is to let it hang around your neck on top of winter coat or knit cardigan.
Any fashionista should own at least one charming vintage scarf! Do some scouting at flea markets, yard sales and thrift stores. The thing about vintage scarves is that they’re available in limited quantities, making it almost impossible to stumble upon anyone with the same piece. It’s original and gives you a nice break from mainstream fashion.
It’s a hot item that looks good with a basic tee and jeans. Wear it to look fun and trendy. Kate Moss is one of the top fashion trendsetters who have been caught wearing this sexy leopard print scarf, so you can never go wrong with it. Wear it as your key piece and work around it with simple garments and accessories.
Boho scarves add a little bit of exotic flair to your style. It definitely enhances any casual outfit. Choose between ethnic-inspired designs such as: Ikat, paisley, florals, tribal print, Batik, anything with ethnic motifs in rich and earthy colors. They’re a thrill to wear in the grey winter months.
