Do’s And Don’ts With A Scarf.

Do’s And Don’ts With A Scarf.

A scarf is the perfect transeasonal accessory. It’s actually just the best all-purpose, all weather fix-it.

If your neck is warm then somehow your whole body feels snug doesn’t it?

They’re also the fastest way to add colour, texture or layers to your in-between weather look. But there are some do’s and don’ts.

Take it to the coffee shop.

DO:

 

Black on black, navy on navy, grey on grey – try layering your outfit with a tonal scarf. Stick to neutral shades – pink on pink doesn’t have quite the same effect – and play with textures choosing a chunky knit or fine weave to contrast with your jacket or top accordingly.

DON’T:

 

Do you really need a hat? And a print on that scarf? No, you do not. Scarves are a big statement on their own. Let them work for, not against, you by keeping the rest of your accessories to a minimum. That goes for make-up too – co-ordinating your lipstick to the fabric wrapped around your neck is not a good idea.

DO:

 

Skinny scarves are really just the poor cousins of bad ties. They belong on rock stars from 1980s hair bands. If you must, then opt for silks and satins that wrap just once, hang long and complement a very simple evening look.

DO:

 

Add a pop of colour with a large shawl-shape scarf. Choose a colour that contrasts with your outfit (red on black above) and that flatters your skin tone. Warmer colours often look best closer to the face.

DON’T:

 

One of the biggest mistakes people make when wearing scarves is choosing styles with too much fabric – this will inevitably overwhelm your face. You don’t want to look like you’re choking. Be realistic about your own proportions and practice in the mirror until you get just the right amount of wrap from your frame.
