Liven up your winter look with a scarf! At a recent Momtrends event in NYC I got to work with Echo to dream up three fresh ways to wear your silk scarves. Perfect timing really. I have to say I am pining for spring. I’m so weary of blazers, boots and sweaters at this point. One option would be to shop for new sweaters and coats. Not happening. To get through the chilly days yet to come in March, I’ve got to get creative.
This week I dove into my scarf bin and came up with three ways to use a scarf as an accessory:
1.) Bracelet: A new way to style some “arm candy.” Skip the bangles and wrap a colorful scarf around your wrist.
2.) Rosette: Pretty and easy to tie, the rosette works well with blazers, jackets and cardigans.
3.) Head scarf: There is no such thing as a bag hair day with a great scarf in your closet.
My look for this experiment was pretty basic. A navy Rag & Bone jacket that I wear all the time. J Brand denim, White Ralph Lauren shirt. Boots. The outfit is kind of a snooze. When I worked in this amazing butterfly scarf, suddenly everything felt new again. The moral of the story–you don’t need a new wardrobe. Now is the time to play with accessories.
Master all three with this quick, instructional video:
Now I want to know what you’ve been wearing. And I know there will also be a lot of Red Carpet Recaps (which I love). I wrote mine here–can’t wait to stir up this fashion cauldron of controversy. If you link up this week, you’ll get a chance at a fabulous prize….two silk scarves from Echo. I know. Pretty fabulous. Good luck everyone!
Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls. Each week we post about our personal style and then invite our friends to join in the fun. Today I get to play host. We rotate each week. Everyone is invited!
