The forgotten accessory - Scarves


Its really funny that we are approaching the end of March and the thing I have rediscovered is scarves. Only I could not wear scarves through the majority of winter, I have a huge coat that I don't need a scarf with, and then rediscover them as spring pops up. In my defence, they are light weight scarves that add a tiny bit of extra warmth if you go out in a lighter jacket than a coat, and I have styled them as a fashion piece rather than a warmth piece. 

Back in January I used mt beloved Alexander McQueen scarf as a prop for my favourites post, you can see it in the photo above, and while it is a piece I adore it went unloved for quite a few months with me being at work and not wanting to wear such a luxury piece to my day job, where I have a lanyard, badge and lots of other things going on that could catch and damage it. 

When I got the invite to the Chino Latino event that I went to the other day the dress code was red and black, so I knew for sure I wanted to utilise my beautiful red scarf. I thought about how I could wear it as I didn't just want to drape it over my shoulders, or wrap it around my neck, and that's when I came up with the idea to wear it like a 'tie' or a 'bow tie' I am not suggesting this is revolutionary or something I have invented, but I can honestly say it has changed the way I think about scarves and will be a way I can add scarves to a shirt in the future to change up the way it looks and give the outfit a new dimension. 

I have so many scarves, and I used to wear a scarf every day, and I don't know what happened but it slowly phased out, but I have seen so many beautiful scarves in the shops recently and have my eye on a few so I can see this becoming a thing once again as I have rediscovered them and have fallen in love with utilising them in other ways and giving them a new lease of life, as well as bringing an outfit to the next level. 

I absolutely love the way they look, and although it only works with thinner scarves and may not be to every ones taste it is a really easy, fun was to change up an outfit, and style it in a different way to make it seem more interesting and on trend. I could take an almost plain collared top and turn it into a statement piece in the outfit utilising the collar and a scarf, and I really love the idea.  Let me know your favourite way to style a scarf!

  1. I'm really getting back into scarves too - I love wearing lighter ones in the spring. Got to admit, teeny tiny bit jealous of your McQueen piece, been lusting after one for years now but I keep spending all my money on beauty instead. I did pick up a gorgeous blush pink number from Primark at the weekend, but the weather seems to have turned back into wooly scarf territory this week!

    1. I love thin ones for spring they add a touch of warmth if its still a bit cool, but don't look out of place! I saved for a while and didn't know if to get it, and decided it was something I had wanted for ages and I had to get it while I had the money saved! They do such amazing versions of it too x

    1. Thank you so much! I was quite pleased with how it looked, but didn't know if it actually looked as good as I thought, so I am so glad to have feedback! x

    1. Me too, they add a nice pop of colour or pattern to a plainer outfit, or a bit of extra warmth if the day is a little cooler than expected! x
