101: Styling Scarves

When it comes to scarves, it’s easy to fall into a styling rut – you know one tried-and-true method, and come back to it over and over. But, inevitably, you’ll see someone with a wisp of fabric tied about her neck just so, and it all looks so effortless and chic that you crave a freshening up of your scarf game. That’s where we come in – our stylists routinely use accessories to create various outfitting options for our clients. Elizabeth’s here with video tutorials of three basic ways to wear a large square scarf, as well as one intermediate option – 101 and 102 if you will, because if there’s one thing we love, it’s teaching styling tips and tricks.

General Scarf Styling Tips & Tricks: 

  • We recommend that our clients wear a necklace as they normally would underneath any scarf with which they’re accessorizing – this way, if they remove the scarf, they don’t feel under-accessorized.
  • When belting at the waist (as seen below), choose a skinny belt and fasten it at your natural waist, an inch above your belly button.
  • Women with larger busts often ask if they should be accessorizing with scarves – to which we reply with a resounding yes! As long as the fabric is light, any of the styling options here work for any bust size.

Note: creating any of these looks is best done with a large, lightweight square scarf, such as the options noted below.
