The Subtle Art of the Scarf

The Subtle Art of the Scarf

Scarves often get overlooked once we remove our winter layers.  At this time it can be a hodgepodge of whatever is leftover from winter that have not bored you to tears.  

Underestimate at your peril.  Scarves can add colour, personality and just the right amount of glamour to your look.  I love drama in my clothes not my life.   Scarves make a fabulous transition if you are not ready to commit to a summery print or colour in a dress.  There are so many options to choose from.   Perhaps you crave a designer label - a Hermes bag out of reach?  Why not opt for a vintage Hermes scarf.  I use this as an example it does not have to be Hermes or designer.  There are so many small niche brands who do scarves.   eluroom has it's own collection of scarves.  Made from the remnants of the dresses.  Boho edging is back and a scarf is an easy way to introduce this to your usual day to day look.  Made from silk the eluroom pieces have fringing and tassels which speak to this look.  Perhaps you have what I call a 'wardrobe lurker'. something you have put aside from maybe a special occasion, a holiday now is the time to revisit and fall back in love with it.

How can a scarf transform your look?

Adding a scarf to your outfit can instantly elevate your style. Whether you choose a bold pattern or a classic solid colour, a scarf can add interest and dimension to your ensemble. By simply draping it around your neck or tying it in a unique way, you can create a whole new look.

What are different ways to style a scarf?

1. The Classic Loop: Simply drape the scarf around your neck and loop it once for a classic and effortless look.

2. The Infinity Style: Create a loop with the scarf and then twist it before looping it around your neck for a chic and cozy style.

3. The Belted Scarf: Add a belt over your scarf to cinch your waist and create a stylish and unique look.

4. The Head Wrap: Use a scarf as a head wrap for a bohemian and trendy look that also keeps your hair in place.

5. The Shoulder Drape: Let the scarf hang over your shoulders for a casual and relaxed vibe that adds a touch of elegance to any outfit.
