One of the best ways to keep your outfits feeling fresh — without actually buying a new outfit for every occasion — is to buy versatile pieces that you can style in a number of ways. A scarf is a great place to start because it can easily be fashioned into a number of accessories and is an easy way to incorporate print or color into your outfit. See some of the ways Rachel is styling the Chan Luu silk scarf in the spring box to start getting some ideas before yours arrives.
We love this classic style. Here, Rachel wraps the leopard scarf around her neck twice before tying it in a small knot and tucking the ends into her button up blouse. It’s an easy way to add some personality to an otherwise boring office outfit, plus you can wear the same thing without the scarf in the same week and no one will notice you’re wearing the same outfit.
If you want to freshen up a handbag, fold your scarf into a thin strip and wrap it tightly around the purse handle as a colorful new accent. Alternatively, you can tie it in a bow around the handle for an easy pop of print. This is a great way to enliven accessories in neutral shades.
As the temperatures rise you’ll be looking for new cute ways to keep your hair out of your face and off your back. For an alternative take on the headband trend, fold the scarf into a 3 inch strip, knot at the front of your forehead and then fasten at the base of your neck. You can tie in a bow in the back letting the ends hang free, or tuck the ends under for a neater result. You can also wrap it around the base of your pony tail for an instant upgrade.
Transform the Tribe Alive black leather clutch into an over the shoulder bag or a belt bag with the silk scarf. Fold it into a slim band and place under the closure flap and tie in a knot at the top for an easy cross body strap. Since you can adjust the strap as you wish, you can also turn it into a belt bag by wearing it around your waist instead of over your shoulder.
