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.

Winter Wonderland Essentials

Happy spring! What better way to celebrate than with some snow flurries; like we haven’t had enough already. If you live in New England you are fully aware that it looks like a winter wonderland. Despite the fact that we are now in “spring”, there is no denying that a winter coat is an essential for the colder temperatures. Since we are in a season transition it is the ideal time to purchase your winter coat for next year (and the tail end of all this snow). Typically retailers will put the left over cold weather gear on sale in an effort to get rid of this merchandise before bringing in new spring products. February and the beginning of March is usually the slowest time of year for retail stores, in an effort to generate business retailers will send out coupons or incentives to get you, the consumer, into the store. Watch for these coupons in your email inbox because you can score some pretty sweet discounts.

Preparing for a winter apocalypse doesn’t mean you have to look like Randy and Ralphie from A Christmas Story, bundled up till you can barely move. I picked up this houndstooth coat at Macy’s a few years ago and I find it fabulous yet functional. I paired it with this red scarf for a pop of color. There are a variety of cold weather coats available to you that will fit your fashion personality while keeping you warm. Other accessories other than the coat and scarf appropriate for cold weather months include beanies, ear muffs, gloves, or mittens. As I mentioned prior, there is a plethora of different styles, fabrics, and patterns available to you in all the items mentioned. The idea is to get cold weather items that reflect you while still keeping you warm, which is top priority. Purchasing a winter coat is an investment but you can find a good deal around this time of year.

Well dolls thank you for swinging by! Good luck finding your winter wonderland apparel and keep the faith! The warmer weather is on it is way!
