Scarves Equal Style in Winter
Any Personal Stylist worth their salt knows that adding a scarf can add instant warmth and style to an outfit, Here are the three main things you need to know before getting on YouTube and watching a millions videos on how to wear a scarf.
Once you know what matters most your style with a scarf is going to be raised by a few notches.
Your Body Shape Affects How You Wear it.
The way you wear your scarf can make you look taller and slimmer!
Or the opposite!
One of my styling mantras (to do with everything you wear, not just scarves) is not to add bulk to areas you feel are already bulky enough.
If you are big busted you’ll suit a finer fabric scarf tied in a way that creates a deep V, or a scooped cowl. Leave some space beneath your chin!
For the oval / apple body shaped ladies, scarves worn long and narrow will be flattering. You can also tie a knot in the scarf just below your bust for another look.
For those lovely ladies who are broader through the hips, thighs or bottom – well, you are the lucky ones! You can go to town with scarves – get on You Tube and watch the millions of tutorials on how to wear a scarf. Scarves are perfect for you – they help to balance, visually creating an hourglass body shape.
The Question of Colour
Because you wear a scarf close to your face, it's very important that the colour flatters your complexion. A good colour for you will make you look fresher, younger and healthy.
To find out which of your scarves flatter you best, hold each one against your chin. Do this in natural light, when you are wearing no make up.
Be Careful of Clutter
Finally, ensure that the scarf doesn’t clutter your outfit – if you have too many focal points to an outfit it (and you) will look messy.
