Scarf Staples

Looking to update your wardrobe but not trying to break the bank? Scarves are definitely a solution to your problem. Scarves range in price and are available in a wide range of styles and fabrications. Not only is there a surplus of scarves attainable by an exchange of currency but there is also a variety of ways to tie these versatile accessories. Each way to wear can elevate your ensemble and make your outfit look different. I have pictured 3 different ways to tie a scarf.

The Basic Loop

This style is the most common and simple way to tie a scarf. Drape 1/4 of the scarf and take the remaining 3/4 and wrap it around your neck and let the other end drape. An effortless and chic look!

The Vest Editors note-I am using the same scarf throughout this entire post. How cool is this vest look? And it can be accomplished by the same scarf used in the basic loop. To accomplish this look start by folding your scarf in half then tie the folded end with the ends of the scarf. This will create armholes, simple throw it on and go!

The Pretzel

This scarf tie is the most complex out of the three. Take your scarf in half then take one end and pull it thru the loop. Then take the second end and go under thru the loop. Adjust accordingly. This look is cozy and draws the attention closer to the neck. You would want to use this style when wearing a simple top.

I hope these steps help and if you have any questions feel free to email me at fashology101@gmail.com, I am happy to answer any questions. As a bride-to-be on a tight budget I know personally I have been utilizing the versatility of scarves to elevate my wardrobe. Have fun with it and happy shopping! Till next time dolls.

Stay Sassy + God Bless xo

When a backpack comes to mind the first thing that crosses ones mind is a school bag filled with books, binders, and pens. One of the hottest trends that is here to stay is the backpack. They are no longer just an item for school kids but, a fabulous and functional accessory for the ladies. They are a great update to a handbag and allow for hands free adventuring. I am smitten with this bag, the wolfepack by Gina deWolfe. This Boston designer hand crafts each piece out of genuine leather hides. The style is minimalistic making it versatile piece with impeccable quality. The wolfepack is an investment piece that is a wardrobe addition made to last. This bag will add instant chic to any ensemble.

I paired the wolfepack with this asymmetric dress, studded boots, and a faux leather jacket. I can't bring myself to wear tights just yet. This dress is flattering to my shape and these boots are my favorite. The combination of the wolfepack and boots adds edge to this look.

Feel free to check out Gina deWolfe's website and get a wolfepack of your own, you won't regret it! If you want to dip your toes into the backpack trend search for one that suits you, they are out there. But like I said this one is hard to pass up! Whatever you add to your wardrobe make sure it fits your style personality, lifestyle, and budget. Keep in mind that any good handbag is an investment and with any purchase make sure you will be getting a good cost per wear. Till next week dolls. Happy shopping!

Stay Sassy xo
