Scarves to Accessorize Your Wardrobe

Updated on February 14, 2018

Scarves Are A Must!

Years ago, scarves were mostly worn by older women, over their heads, to protect their hairdos from the wind or rain. If your newly styled hair was teased and fluffy, you wore the scarf loosely so as not to flatten the style. This was my Mother's generation. The scarf was a very practical tool and came in many colors and patterns. The fabric choice was very limited.

Today, the notorious scarf is a fashion plus. The role of the scarf has expanded to include many fabrics, colors, and styles. The scarf of old has become more sophisticated. Its role is varied, depending on the need of the user and the temperature, the attire, and the purpose.

Scarves Are For Everyone!

Do you live in a cold climate? During those cold months of the year, wrapping one's neck with a scarf keeps the body much warmer. By using a knit or wool scarf, the front of the neck and upper chest are protected from cold temperatures. Prices vary according to the fabric and even the store from which it is purchased. Gloves or mittens can be purchased to match if needed. The younger generation has grown up with scarf and mitten sets in almost every store, displayed in bold colors and fabrics, as the Christmas season begins.

Scarves Are Dressy

If you have an outfit that needs a special touch, a scarf could be the answer to your need. Wrap a matching shawl or scarf over the shoulders or artistically wrap your neck. Fabric choice is important when choosing a scarf. There are many light fabrics available that will compliment a summer wardrobe.

Scarves will dress up your jacket or coat! Color and textures are important to consider when making this purchase. Let the color bring out your best look? Do your eyes sparkle and your hair complement the hues in the scarf? Let the scarf work for you, not against you.

My latest scarf purchase was made at Charming Charlies, a local accessory store that is a hot spot for accessories of all types. I was looking for a scarf that would compliment some of my summer outfits. I found a lovely beige scarf, light and airy, with green leaves floating delicately on both ends of the fabric. I can wear it over a shirt or blouse and not feel too warm on a summer day.
