The scarf has long been a an icon of ladies fashion, but it has certainly lost its luster over the years. Here in the United States, women tend to forsake the poor scarf as a winter-only accessory, but a couple of popular Youtube videos aim at changing that for the better. As women start turning towards classic and signature looks as inspiration for their wardrobes, the scarf is ready to take back the runway and streets one neck at a time.

A Scarf for Every Style

A scarf is one of the most versatile accessories in the closet. Many woman find scarves to be a great replacement for more flashier or uncomfortable pieces of jewelry. A floral pattern scarf, for example can easily replace a flower pendant or a bulky and uncomfortable necklace piece. All the while it still draws attention and focus to the face and eyes. The same scarf can be paired with a complementary set of earrings or a muted pair of shoes for a effortless look.

A good, classic scarf can also help you cut down on space in your jewelry box. Struggling each morning to find the perfect necklace to pair with an outfit can be a big pain and a horrible waste of time. A good fashionista knows that while one look may work with a v-neck dress, the same may not look as great with a sweetheart style t-shirt or a long sleeve silk blouse. That’s where the scarf comes in. Instead of rummaging through necklace after necklace, a silk can be transformed with a little patience and creativity to match whatever you’re wearing.

With department and fashion accessory stores starting to stock more and more pattern and fabric options, the sky’s the limit with what you can do and how you can wear the piece. For example, a plain, one colored scarf can add a simple touch of complimentary color to an already put together ensemble. A silk scarf adds texture without bulk while a long, cotton material version is the perfect cold weather, casual accessory.

Your signature style is just a tie and twist away with a scarf that matches your personality and compliments your outfits.
