How do you decide which style and color of scarf will complement the outfit you are wearing?
The black sweater tank and jacket with jeans above were OK, but when I added the suede shoes and the bag, the colors of the scarf pulled the whole thing together, making the entire look more polished.
We were attending a church function in the evening, so I wore a nice pair of dress pants with a Covered Perfectly top and my Officer Blue Topper from White House|Black Market. The vibrant jewel colors and satin texture of the scarf significantly dressed up the basic pieces.
I wore an old black faux leather jacket from Stein Mart with a Covered Perfectly top and black pants to dinner one evening. The soft, supple black, white, and gray blanket scarf has the same “attitude.” It isn’t too dressy or silky. The jacket requires a more architectural design and fabric against the toughness of the faux leather.
The Covered Perfectly top and pants were dressed up a bit with a vest and a colorful soft cotton scarf. The casual fabrics relate to each other well.
I wore the Officer Blue Topper again on a snowy day with a bright fuchsia warm scarf. The looks above and below include scarves worn for warmth more so than style.
I added the soft gray cashmere scarf/wrap because it related to the same tones of the gray overcoat.
The soft cotton rectangle shape scarf above was tied into the infinity style. The colors of the scarf relate to both the jeans and cashmere sweater. I wanted to fill in my neckline because the V of the sweater is a bit too low.
The scarf above has the same soft blues and tans as my jeans and the boots, so wearing the scarf book-ended the colors to tie the whole look together in a cohesive way.
