the {very essential} scarf

The scarf is an essential accessory to every woman’s wardrobe. Especially during transitional seasons of the year like Spring and Fall. I always tell clients that the scarf is one of the easiest ways to add instant “chic” to any outfit. Throw on a scarf with jeans and tee and you immediatly evelate your style. Add a scarf to a simple jacket/blazer ensemble to add texture and color. With spring colors and bold patterns in nearly-full bloom, scarves are an affordable, efficient way to add pops of bright-hues and prints to your wardrobe.
A few tips when shopping for scarves ::

1. Make sure a scarf is long enough, which means that it needs to be longer than you probably think! Once you wrap a scarf around your neck a few times, the length very quickly diminishes. Hence, the longer the scarf, the more ways you can wear and tie it.

2. Look for soft, airy materials and textures. If the material is a bit sheer, that is ideal for Spring/Summer, making it more breathable and comfortable when the temps rise.

3. Select colors that are flattering to your face’s skin tone. Since a colorful scarf adds a significant amount of color right up at your face, be mindful of that a certain hue may “wash you out.” Turquoise and coral tones are fairly universally flattering, and a great colors to incorporate into your Spring scarf wardrobe.
