Looking for Rome Fashion Tips? Scarf tying is one of the easiest ways to ramp it up!
You know how much I love telling you to wear scarves when you visit Rome (see my pages of Rome by Month, in the menu at the top of each page)?
On this page, you'll get super style types about how to wear that scarf whether you are visiting Rome or at home.
Tired of wearing the same outfits all the time?
Don’t assume this means you have to set aside money to buy a bunch of new clothes.
Revamping your wardrobe doesn’t need to be expensive. Sometimes all it takes is the right accessory.
For instance, a silk scarf can transform your current outfits if you know how to style it right. These tips will help.
Of course, the simplest way to use a scarf as part of an outfit is to wear it in the classic style. Wrap it around your neck twice, then tie it into a knot and tuck the ends into a blouse.
This is one of my favorite ways to instantly breathe new life into an outfit when I’m in a hurry. The added pop of color the scarf brings to the outfit will turn an old piece into something that feels new and fresh. You can also experiment with different ways of tying a scarf for a little variety.
You don’t need to look for new accessories or rely on an accessory subscription to help you step up your wardrobe. A scarf can work to rejuvenate your other accessories as well.
For example, simply folding a scarf into a thin strip and wrapping it around the handle of one of your favorite handbags provides an accent color that will make your bag stand out. You might also want to tie it in a bow around the handle if you prefer that styling. I like to mix and match both depending on the bag I’m using.
I also sometimes fold my scarf into a thin strip and insert under the closure flap of a clutch, then tie a knot. The silk scarf gives me an adjustable, colorful handle, and helps to turn my favorite clutch into a multi-wear bag. I love to wear this as a trendy belt bag, or just sling it over my shoulder if I’m on-the-go.
It’s no secret that humidity is the enemy of a good hair day. It’s certainly given me my share of bad hair days, and sometimes you need a simple fix when the weather isn’t cooperating.
This is yet another instance when a scarf comes in handy. With the current headband trend showing no signs of stopping, consider putting a new spin on it by folding your scarf into a three-inch strip, tying the knot at the front of your forehead, then fastening it to the base of your neck. The result is a unique headband that keeps your hair out of your face while also making a fashion statement.
And, with summer days rapidly approaching, start thinking about how you can incorporate these accents into your warm weather outfits, too. If you’re looking for the perfect silk scarf, a summer subscription box will give you some great options to get started with.
Remember these points the next time you’re looking for an affordable way to update your wardrobe. Most importantly, have fun using a scarf in new ways! Indulging your own creativity is key to finding smart uses for this versatile accessory.
