How about wearing a scarf to inject some boldness, a dash of color, a hint of style and some feminine softness into your wardrobe? One of the great things about scarves is that they create a focal point for the eye. If you wear one around your neck and tie it so that the long ends hang down in front and back, you’ll emphasize the vertical. An Ascot or square knot tied at the neck will draw attention to your neck and face. If you twist a scarf, you can wear it as a headband; or, if you prefer, you can wear a scarf like a shawl over one or both shoulders. A scarf adds drama to a tee or tank top and can make your work ensemble look far more polished. You can spend a fortune on a designer scarf or, if you’re thrift-minded, you can find a beautiful one for under $10 at the following stores:
