Celebrity Scarf Looks

It’s every girl’s dream to look like a celebrity, but did you know that simple additions in your outfit can bring you a celeb-like look in no time? Winter does not automatically equate to wearing dowdy clothes; you can still stay on top of fashion by dressing and accessorizing like your favorite Star. Here are some of the coolest and most sophisticated ways to wear your scarf this season.

Match perfectly

Match color to color. If you’re going neutral this winter, then work it to the max. Hue on hue is a fabulous look and works beautifully on neutral shades like cream, navy, white, camel, and black. Get a more sophisticated look by playing with fabrics that can bring out the allure in material. Pair long skinny knits with metallic or leather jackets in a similar color.

Go oversized

Cambridge Houndstooth Wrap Scarf Oversized is in and in good time too, with winter blizzards and storming up cold regions. Wrap yourself up, keep cozy, and look fabulous in a woven scarf that works great with any outfit. Look awesome in a pair of leather skinnies, long knit top, long overcoat, and an oversized wraparound scarf.

For the not-so-cold days

On days when it’s not too cold, try an infinity scarf or a single wrap around to keep you warm and styling. Pair your wrap with a regular sweater top over some jeans and boots, and you’re good to go. Or, try the infinity look—our personal favorite—with a pair of leggings, button down sweater, loose fit overcoat, and a shoulder strap bag.

Light and subtle prints are great for an everyday look that complements your outfit well. Soft blue plaid scarves on white tops and jeans under a camel hooded overcoat makes a great option while running errands or hopping to the store.

Spruce it up

Bring out the glam factor with a pair of fitted ankle crop jeans, black blazer over a hoodie sweater, and a tasseled and printed scarf that adds color and fresh perspective to your look. Or, pair a leather fringe jacket with an oversized scarf for a comfortable, yet cool and hip look.

The mysterious scarf can work wonders and completely transform your outfit as well. Use a lightweight scarf and knot it around the neck to make it seem like an infinity scarf. Worn over an oversized coat with blouse and skirt over tights, it will make you feel like a glamorous diva.

If you like monochromes, then embrace the idea of pairing a fitted gray twill overcoat with a matching gray and white scarf.

 

 

 

 

Accessories Can Make or Break a Look

You may dress well, but the look is incomplete without the right accessories. We can loosely define a fashion accessory as a secondary item that contributes to a wearer’s outfit. An accessory can be a purse, jewelry, gloves, shoes, jackets, boots, suspenders-the list is endless. In fact, anything other than your clothes is an accessory.

Fashion accessories for all seasons

Fashion accessories are just as important as the clothes. Some of the fashion accessories that are in style all year round are sunglasses, jewelry, and handbags. Even in the Summer, when the sun is hot and shining, you can look your fashionable best. Oversized sunglasses are the latest trend. Find what shape suits you best and match the color with your outfit. Wayfarers, aviators, cat eye, and many more styles are up for grabs.

Jewelry, nowadays, is no longer a female-dominated domain. Of course, women have always obsessed about jewelry, but designers today are designing jewelry exclusively for men. With stars like Johnny Depp walking out in jeweled finery, it is the latest trend to take the world by storm. Rings, cuffs, cuff links, tie bars, bracelets, and chains are in. There is a slight risk of overdoing it with jewelry, but do what suits you and whatever you are comfortable with. Do not follow trends blindly.

When it comes to accessories, scarves can be an inexpensive way to make any outfit complete. Even for men, scarves are a necessity for every season. During the summer, a nice silk scarf can help protect your skin from the sun while keeping you cool when a breeze passes by. In the winter, a great knit scarf can add pizzazz to your outfit while keeping the chill off your neck.

Handbags, including a range of man purses or messenger bags, are the most important yet practical accessory these days. The range, color, and designs vary as per the occasion and you can never fail with a classic style.

Choosing the right accessories

A look is incomplete without the right accessories. An individual’s style reflects in the way they accessorize. In fact, the right accessories can restyle an old repeat outfit, make an inexpensive garment look expensive, give you a new style, and make you look completely different.

Just like the garment one wears, the accessory can change the entire look. They can draw attention to or away from any part of the body. Accessories can lengthen or shorten your height. An accessory can make you look elegant or boho chic and contribute to your personality, be it a handbag, earrings, belt, tie, muffler, shoe or leg warmers. It can basically add a finishing touch to your overall look.

A Head Scarf is a Multi-Faceted Accessory

Headscarves have been worn for eons for a number of reasons. They can be used for keeping the head warm, to keep hair do’s intact, or purely as a fashion statement. Katharine Hepburn and Grace Kelly made the trend way popular in the 60s.

Here’s how to wear a head scarf

head scarf You can simply fold a scarf in to a triangle and wrap it around your head and tie the corners falling down your face into a knot. This look is quite common and keeps the hair from flying astray. You can also try various styles of wrapping a head scarf which will make you look ultra-chic.

Let’s start with the ‘Up in Knots’ style, which looks like a hair band and holds hair in place. Take a scarf or a skinny scarf and fold it horizontally until you are left with about a 4 inch wide rectangle. Center the scarf on the nape of the neck, bring each side to the front of the head, and tie a double knot. Take the two sides hanging down, twist, wrap, twist again, and tuck in the ends.

The second style is aptly called ‘Little Bow Peep’. This too is more or less like a hair band, but looks really cute, too. Take a skinny scarf; fold it in horizontally in half, just like ‘Up in Knots.’ Next, center the scarf at the nape and tie a knot by bringing both sides on top of your ears. Make a two sided knot over one eye, tie a bow, and tuck in the ends.

Headscarves are fun

How about a style known as ‘Knotted and Nautical,’ which begins the same way as the other two styles. The knot this time is centered on the head and the loose ends are tied, twisted and tucked under.

Last comes the ‘Itty Bitty Bow.’ A small square scarf is folded in a triangle. Centered on the neck, the scarf is tied over the ears on the top of the head. The tips are tucked in like a bow.

Headscarves can prove to be very versatile and practical yet fashionable. Try a few styles today and you will definitely be complimented for making a style statement.

Every so often, I get a print stuck in my head, and I keep wearing and making it until I get sick of it. These days, that print is triangles. I love the geometric print on everything — pants, shirts, jewelry, and of course, scarves. :)

Lately I’ve been seeing triangles everywhere — bags, prints, the runway — so I wanted to make a triangle print scarf of my own. It’s super simple, and you only need a bit of time!

Supplies you need:

DIY Triangle Print Infinity Scarf

  • Paint (Soft Fabric Paint is best)
  • Scarf (Any scarf will do. For a scarf similar to mine, I like this and this, too.)
  • Sponge
  • Water to dilute the paint
  • Paper/plastic to put under the scarf so it doesn’t bleed

Directions:

DIY Triangle Print Infinity ScarfIt’s quite simple to add a print to your scarf! You can use this for any technique:

  • First, I put the paint on a plate in different amounts and swirled them all together.
  • After that, I added a little bit of water to dilute the paint and make it easier to stamp all over the scarf.
  • Then, I got my sponge a bit wet and started stamping!
  • After one side of the infinity scarf was done, I let it dry and then stamped the other side.

After the scarf was done drying, I wanted to experiment a bit with how to tie an infinity scarf. The thing I love about scarves is that they make an outfit look effortless, but put together, too.
