The Most Versatile Accessory

If you're anything like me, you have a plethora of pashminas and scarves crowding your wardrobe space.

From wool to silk and everything in between, scarves have to be the most versatile accessory a woman can own . . .

And this is the time of year to experiment with the way you wear them - turbans, traditional knots and my personal fave - tucked into a belt. By simply letting the two ends of your scarf fall down over your chest and adjusting them in place with a belt, you create a sleek and stylish look that not only adds extra interest to your outfit, but holds your scarf in place even in the windiest of days.

Long, billowy silk scarves are great to work with because the lighter the fabric, the lesser the bulk.

For a sleek look, try a neutral, monochromatic outfit and layer with a thin, colourful scarf. Layer thicker, knitted scarves over tailored, structured jackets and coats, like trenches or blazers.

A thick, oversized scarf looks super cozy against a neutral trench, paired with a thin black belt to balance the volume.

Bold and bright looks best against the simplest of backdrops, such as navy or a camel coat. The thin fabric of the scarf keeps bulkiness at bay.

A knee-length scarf creates a vertical line and elongates you, especially when the ends of this scarf aline with the hem of a dress or coat.

It gets even easier when you simply tuck the scarf into the belt that comes with your cool coat.

Go bold and intertwine two pashmina scarves worn as one. Simply weave two contrasting colours or printed scarves together and just wrap or knot around your clavicle. The use of two scarves gives you more combinations and individuality, and of course the extra coverage will help to keep you lovely and warm.
