The scarf is one of the must-have accessories for fall or any time of year. Scarves are incredibly versatile, making even the most ordinary outfits look spectacular. Scarves are one of the more affordable accessories, too. They’re cheaper than buying a new purse or another piece of jewelry. This chevron-patterned Infinity scarf available via Amazon is a real bargain at $8.59 with free Prime shipping. Other color options are available; some have lower prices and small shipping fees, but this color and pattern are my personal favorite. This particular scarf is sheer and lightweight. It fluffs up nicely, too. At these prices, you can afford to buy several different colors.
If you’re looking for ways to wear your new scarf, try some of these options:
- Wear it around the neck. This is the classic way to wear a scarf, but don’t be fooled. There are many different ways to tie a scarf around your neck for different and interesting looks. Check out the YouTube video called 15 Different Ways to Wear a Scarf for a bit of inspiration.
- Channel Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn by wearing the scarf over your hair. It will add a touch of old-fashioned elegance or tame your hair on a bad hair day.
- Wear it as a belt. If you don’t have a belt to go with your outfit or just want something with a little more pizzazz around the waist, go for your scarf. They fit comfortably at the waist and can be worn in many different positions for a variety of looks.
- Tie the scarf on a handbag for a little splash of color. It can be used to make the handbag look more fashionable or serve as an emergency accessory to cover your hair on a humid day or to throw around your shoulders if someone else comes to work wearing the same outfit.
- Wear the scarf as a shawl. This is one of the best ways to wear a scarf, yet it is often overlooked. You can tie it at your collarbone or use a beautiful brooch to pin it down.
Scarves look great on anyone, with any outfit. There are few accessories that are so versatile and so affordable. Stock up whenever you come across a good deal on scarves; you can never have too many.
