Using the Scarf as an Accessory
Diversity with a Small Piece of Fabric
Scarves have come a long way from our Girl Guide and Girl Scout days. Instead of orange and brown you can find them in all manner of colors and patterns to suit your wardrobe and taste.
Scarves where a staple fashion piece in the 50s and 60s. Women like Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn made them alluring. They are making a comeback both in Hollywood and for the average fashionista. Sheer, thick, short, long... the choice is yours.
This lens highlights ten ways to use your favorite scarf as an accessory.
