Wrap It Up

By Kristin Tucker Posted February 13, 2012 at 2:13 pm

It’s the perfect accessory whether your winter weather is mild or cold.  Have you been ignoring your scarves lately?  Time to break them out!  Old Man Winter has finally paid us a visit.  Remember The Fashion Plate’s holiday wish list?  Well, if you were lucky like me, Santa brought you a gorgeous patterned pashmina or traditional scarf.  (See below.)

Scarves not only keep you cozy in your often-too-cool office cubicle, but they can add a pop of color to your suit, biz-casual look or neutral colored coat.  Scarves in a bold color are the perfect cold-weather addition to a sweater or shift dress with tights and a cardigan.  Plus, scarves in classic patterns like paisley, houndstooth or checks will complement a silk blouse and slacks.

If you make a particularly windy commute, Tyz Scarves have a built-in wire allowing you to wrap and style your scarf without readjusting it.  Then there’s no fear of it blowing away!  Don’t forget that a pashmina scarf makes the perfect travel partner adding that extra layer of warmth and doubling as a blanket no matter what your mode of transportation.

For those of us who love to dress colorfully, wrap your neck with whatever pattern suits your mood–from animal print to color-blocked to floral and striped.  Check out these scarves displayed at Bevello on Franklin Street.

ScarfWorld lets you search scarves by color, fabric and even embellishment.  Challenged by how to wear or tie your scarf?  Texere Silk offers step-by-step instructions on more than 35 ways to tie your scarf.  That means you can have a different style for each day of the month.

For an inexpensive way to stay stylish and warm visit one of our local boutiques and add a little pop to your wardrobe.  Make it pink, red or diamond studded this week to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

Those are my tips on wrapping it up with scarves.  Share yours below.
