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.

The Art of Accessorizing!

84778379

Hello dolls! I apologize for the hiatus. Recently I accepted a new position as an assistant buyer for a catalog company. I have been working hard learning this new job and on top of that I got engaged! It has been an exciting few weeks but I've missed my fashionistas! What better way to get back into the swing of things than with a collaboration!

The art of accessorizing is critical to any female's wardrobe. (Especially if you are on a tight budget because now you're saving for a wedding and a house. Face palm) Accessorizing can update any look without breaking the bank. I am wearing an all black ensemble to illustrate the power of jewels! (Whether they are real or costume) These chandelier earrings are absolutely stunning! The green stones are complimented with a touch of gold. When wearing statement earrings like these I suggest pulling your hair back so they will actually be seen. I am a sucker for anything anchor so this double anchor ring is a must have. The best part is that each piece is ONLY $5.00! That is right, I updated this all black look for only $10.00! Check out these pieces and many more at Clubbing Girl { www.clubbinggirl.com } ! I am a fan of fine jewelry but can't afford to stock my collection with it. Coco Chanel taught us to mix fine and costume jewelry to help enhance the apparel items in our closet. The look pictured is great for any weekend adventure and can be changed with accessories like pearls and heels which would be appropriate for a more formal occasion.
