Fall Scarves 2017
I have a bit of a scarf obsession. It started when I was in high school. Two of my aunts and my mom got into a mad scarf-knitting phase. I had scarves coming out my ears so to speak. I got so used to having a scarf for every occasion that now it’s hard for me to part with any scarves I pick up along the way. And there are so many scarf trends out there to try!!
After sharing my Women’s Fall Fashion Trends + Closet Essentials post last week, I found out you all are just as in love with a great scarf as I am! And in my hunting for fall scarves online in the last few weeks, I found so many great options at all price points. Did you know there’s almost 100 Nordstrom scarves under $25?? Now you just have to narrow down with one or two to get! Good luck!
Wearing a Scarf
Besides being a warm layer, wearing a scarf is also part of putting together your outfit. In the early fall, it’s an accessory to match your outfit. As the temps cool down, it’s your pop of color above your coat (usually black or tan in my case). If you only want to have one or two scarves, I’d suggest opting for pieces that have black and/or brown hues. Then you can wear them just about every day.
I have a few reversible ones (one side a lighter version of the other) and I can’t tell you how much wear I get out of them!! Plaid scarves can be a really fun pop of color too. And let’s be honest, plaid really doesn’t ever go out of style, so you can wear it for years to come!
How to Wear a Long/Oversized Scarf
In the last few years, the oversized scarf trend has become quite popular. These big scarves are really only great when it’s actually cold outside. Otherwise all the bulk and wrapping necessary can be a bit overwhelming. The trick to wearing an oversized scarf is wrapping it loosely around your neck and shoulders. There’s no need to conserve material!
One of my favorite things about oversized scarves is how great they can be for travel. They can double (triple?) as a blanket or pillow. I really like wide or poncho-esque scarves for adding a chic layer to my go-to tee shirt and jeans travel outfit too!
