It’s a Wrap…all about Scarves

21 Oct

I love to wear scarves…and I wear them year-round.  As readers of this blog are aware, I love to wear my black shawl, from Sept.-May.  I use it as a scarf, shawl,coat, and a blanket and it is always with me.   Probably too much so.   And was absolutely lost this summer, when I forgot it on one of our trips to San Francisco…Mer Mer, the smart girl that she is, brought hers, so I was able to use hers, which truly was a god-send, as it’s about 60 degrees in San Fran in July.    I’ve also given friends scarves, because I find them to also be sensational gifts…I, however, was “shocked” when it was revealed that a dear friend  doesn’t use the black cashmere and wool shawl that I gave her…So, to entice her, since she’s a loyal reader of my blog, I’ve decided to dedicate this blog to her (and she shall remain nameless).  🙂

In the spring and summer, I wear colorful scarves to add Pop to my outfits, since I’m basically always adorned in black and white. 

Here are numerous ways to wear scarves and add punch and color to your everyday look:

This website is invaluable in showing new and different ways to tie scarves.   Who knew there were 37 ways to tie a scarf?  I won’t copy and paste them all, but I suggest you take a peek at this website to learn a few new tricks. 😉

You can buy scarves anywhere…Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Target, Kohl’s, flea markets, you can raid your Mom or Grandmother’s closets (as you have for vintage handbags and jewelry).   There’s no need to break the bank to add a little pizzaz to what you are wearing.  You can spend anywhere from $1 upwards of $500…like this Fabulous little Burberry number…which, with cream, black, white, and red, goes with almost everything I wear:

Here are some great scarves I found, and where I found them:

Target:  $19

Kohls: $18 – Vera Wang!

Nordstrom:  $22.90

Nordstrom:  $42 – $36 – for 12 oblong scarves!

Ann Taylor:  $48

Saks – Burberry Scarf $169

Terry’s Closet, compliments of Etcetera: $225

Another way I like to bring some Color to an outfit, is by tying a scarf around my handbag:

It appears even the stars have emulated my look: 🙂

Other ways to add scarves to your look, is to wrap them around your head.  I’m not a fan of this look, so have chosen not to add a visual to this blog.  It is afterall, Dressed to a T, and since I’m “T”, I have chosen not to give credence to this look.  Don’t get “tied”  down by any one tie or look…find the one you like best, or the couple that work for you.  And yes, Pun was intended. 🙂



And hopefully the fine folks of Tamp Bay, will be sending this ecard to all their friends Sunday!
