Fashion Fundamentals: The Scarf

March 27th, 2008

Keep a scarf stashed in your handbag.  You never know when it’ll come in handy.  Scarves are great for punching up a ho-hum outfit, giving you a bit of extra color, and keeping you warm from overzealous air conditioning.  Often, they do all three. 

How do you wear a scarf (in three easy steps)?  (1) Fold it in half lengthwise, (2) Wrap it around your neck, and (3) Tuck the loose ends through the folded end.  Presenting our five favorite scarves to sweep you through Spring:

Banana Republic Cashmere Wrap
Cashmere Wrap | $68 at Banana Republic
Simply elegant, and that purple color is lovely.

American Eagle Sheer Striped Scarf

    I’m a scarf fan. I think I must have 75 scarves and I just love them. I usually stick to a classic (boring?) wardrobe but my scarves change the look. There’s something about my leopard print scarf that makes me feel racy, and my chiffon floral scarf can make jeans and a t-shirt look ultra-feminine.

    Wow, 75 scarves! I’m still working on my scarf collection. You’re totally right about how a scarf can really affect the mood of an outfit.
