A great scarf is a powerful tool. However, it can be used for either fashion good or fashion...not-so-good. You never want a scarf to overwhelm you or take away from the fabulous clothes you're wearing. A scarf is meant to enhance your ensemble and add just the right amount of fashion appeal. In a nutshell - wearing a scarf well makes you appear fashion savvy, which is a simple way to gain major style cred. 

Different tastes aside, my personal definition of a great scarf is one that really stands out and catches the eye. I love a scarf to have color, texture, and pattern - that's a power threesome right there. A beautiful scarf is the perfect way to add some style and pizzaz to a neutral outfit (like I did with this look). Simply add a colorful/patterned scarf to a plain outfit or layer a solid colored scarf over a more colorful or busy outfit, and you instantly look polished and put-together - all because of one accessory. How sweet and easy is that?! So ladies, stock up on some stylish scarves ASAP! Your wardrobe will thank you later.

  13. Kathleen, I am such a sucker when it comes to scarfs. They make each outfit complete and add that special touch to them. Love the multi colours of yours, so it can actualyl be worn all year long with those colours.
