It only takes a little to add a load of style, and incorporating the right scarf into your outfit is one of the smartest ways to get the biggest bang for your accessory buck.
A scarf can dress up a casual look or bring an everyday vibe to a dressy dress. It can add a complexion-flattering shot of color to an all-black outfit and a scarf in one of this season’s colors is an inexpensive way to update any look.
Here are three great ideas for how to wear fall scarves.
1. A Bouclé Scarf Dresses Up Jeans
If you’re a sweater and jeans gals, there is nothing better than a scarf to pull your look together and turn everything together into an outfit. See how I’ve done it here with this chic, yet affordable, multicolored scarf woven from a super soft and cozy bouclé yarn?
This rustic scarf adds color but also some great texture to an otherwise plain outfit. Chic suede slides and this creamy bag create a harmonious, high-end look.
2. Pair a Colorblock with a Sweaterdress
One of my favorite fall style recipes is a cozy sweaterdress with a pair of booties or tall boots. It’s comfortable, keeps you warm on chilly fall days, and is an easy-to-wear outfit when you’ve slept through the alarm and only have five minutes to get ready for work.
Adding a scarf to a sweaterdress makes it extra chic and polished. See how I’ve done it here? I’ve started with a neutral-colored black sweater dress and a pair of luxurious, suede booties. By simply adding a bright, modern scarf, I’ve taken a basic outfit from pretty nice to pretty wow!
3. Add an Animal Print Scarf to a Leggings Outfit
Do you love leggings and want to find a way to style them that is new and modern? Adding a scarf is an excellent way to do it.
Start with a pair of black leggings (in this case they are faux leather leggings), and add a flowy tunic. Next, layer on an animal print scarf and watch the magic happen. Different scarves will produce outfits that have totally different vibes. I just happen to like the look of animal print with faux leather. For example, this python print scarf worn with faux leather leggings gives this outfit an exotic, edgy vibe.
A floral scarf or stripe scarf would create a completely different feel. That’s the beauty of scarves.
4. Try a Classic Plaid Scarf with White Jeans
Here’s a good idea for how to make a white jeans outfit a little more fall-like. Take a muted plaid scarf with a touch of white or cream in it and pair it with a sweater and white jeans. This beautiful peach and gray plaid scarf is refined and elegant and looks chic worn with a dusty peach sweater and white skinny jeans.
Team up this look with sleek riding boots and a trendy bucket bag, and you have a sophisticated look that a nod to this Fall’s equestrian trend.
