Fall Fashion: Scarves

The SCARF.... A fabulous, versatile, and even practical accessory we see more and more of as the weather turns cooler. Who doesn't love the warmth you instantly feel after wrapping often yards of fabric, or better yet, soft, hand-knit wool, around your's amazing.

What is also so great about this accessory is the multiple ways of styling and the various colors, fabrics, textures, and styles or types scarves can be found in. There are scarves for any weather and every outfit...quickly adding interest and color to an otherwise basic outfit.
Whether it's a $5 "pashmina" you purchased from a street vendor in NYC or a $450 traditional Burberry plaid....scarves are an effortless accessory to add to any ensemble. Priced from under $10 to over $100, there are so many options out there....

Once you've purchased a scarf, or two, there are several ways to wear, or style a scarf.
There are so many ways, from simple to complex, that there is even a Scarf Tying Guide online! Click here to check out the step-by-step instructions, with pictures!

Two favorite ways to wear your scarf:
  • the "New York Knot"--where you fold the scarf in half, wrap it around your neck, then pull the ends through the loop (pictured)
  • just wrap the scarf around your neck twice and leave the ends hanging on each side.

Here is one fantastic, "new" way to style your silk scarf, from the blog, Everything Fabulous--this scarf is styled more as a necklace, than a true scarf....but I love the change--so unexpected!!

Another newer "type" of scarf is the infinity scarf, which is just one continuous loop of fabric. These can be looped around your neck multiple times to hug close or loosely looped around as a longer accessory. I have yet to own or wear an infinity scarf yet, but as I searched for affordable scarves, they were popping up everywhere (above in the "scarf collage"-click on the names or the collage to bring you to a page to find out WHERE to get these scarves....all of them are available now!) infinity scarf just might be the next accessory I add to my wardrobe!

They look so amazing, cozy and warm....perfect for the first weeks of fall....which is next Tuesday already!
I am SO ready for scarves, tights, and tall boots....amidst the crunching of leaves, bonfires, and cranberry tea simmering on the stove......I LOVE fall!

And remember it is still BOUTIQUE WEEK....check out MSP-StPaul magazine's webpage for details....maybe you can find a great deal on a new scarf for your fall wardrobe!!
