I know I haven’t done much about fashion, but clothes are an important part of your style. Unless you are living under a rock, you should have caught on to the trend or at least noticed that big, fussy scarves are totally IN. They are yet another way women accessorize themselves, though to me are one of the most practical. They are not just making you look good, they provide warmth for the wimps and are perfect for snotty noses. But seriously, you’re most likely going to wear scarves anyway for the winter, so why not get ones that are totally cute? For picking out if your scarf is a keeper, consider this.
1. Are there lots of things like beads or balls hanging off it? Not a good sign. Those fall off easily, often get stuck in coats or zippers and might even fall off in the wash (some people do forget they’re wearing a scarf when eating spaghetti, okay?)
2. Is it too long? if the scarf is a bit longer than you might normally wear, steer clear. They get caught in things and have a mysterious habit of unwrapping themselves.
3. How’s the pattern? Just like with clothes, make sure you like the look of the scarf. After all, it will be on your body. Also make sure you have a shirt or two that you plan to wear it with. If it’s a patterned scarf, wear it with a solid color shirt, and vice-versa.
4. Is it homemade? Homemade scarves are very cool, especially if you get them at craft fairs. It’s always better to know who made your clothes, although there is absolutely nothing wrong with the scarves from the store. In fact, sometimes homemade scarves can be rather itchy, so stay away unless red necks are your thing.
For the dedicated scarf-wearer, you must know there are many ways to tie a scarf. each way can change the length and fit, so tie wisely. For some tie ideas, check this out.
This girl obviously did not get my memo about buying scarves without hanging balls, but her technique is fantastic.
