Ways to Wear a Scarf to Accentuate Your Look

In women's fashion, there is one accessory that is often completely overlooked, yet can offer endless possibilities for enhancing the look of your wardrobe. That accessory, of course, is the scarf. Scarves have been a part of women's fashion for millennia, with representations of fringed rectangles of fabric found in Chinese sculpture dating as far back as 1000 b. c.
      In the last half-century, scarf-wear has evoked an air of Hollywood-style glamour, and sophisticated elegance. Just picture such icons as Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly arriving for lunch at the Brown Derby, their beauty barely disguised by silk scarves and sunglasses, looking amazingly glamorous.
Scarf Styles:
      Throughout history, scarves have been made from a variety of fabrics
- from heavy wool knits to fine silk weaves, patterned or plain - each style appropriate to its setting or the fashion of the period. Today, fashion scarves are commonly made from silk, rayon or acetate, which offer a light weight, fluid movement, strength, and a shimmering finish. Other common fabrics for scarves are cotton and wool, which make for a slightly heavier scarf, with structure and often textured finishes.
      Scarves come in many sizes and shapes, and many are designed for specific uses. There are bandanas and kerchiefs which are smaller in size (usually 14-16 inches [35-40 cm] on a side), to large shawl-like scarves (which can be up to 48 inches [120 cm] on a side). There are square scarves, rectangular (or oblong) scarves, and triangular scarves. Some scarves have hemmed edges, fringed edges, and fused edges. They can be batik dyed, tie-dyed, silk-screened, have woven patterns, or solid colors. In short, the possibilities are endless.
Wearing Scarves:
      Scarves can be worn in a variety of ways: as head coverings, shawls, accent pieces, belts, and even as garments. They are truly versatile and can add flair to a style, or be used as a subtle accent. They can be tied, pinned with a piece of jewelry, or secured with specially designed accents. Below are some examples of ways to wear scarves to accentuate your look, the shape of scarf you will need and how to secure them.
Scarves as Headwear
      Covering the head is one of the traditional purposes for which scarves have been used. Some cultures' mores insist that women wear scarves to cover their head as a matter of propriety, and in areas of the world where the climate is cold, women use scarves to protect their heads against the elements. Our concern here, however, is the use of scarves in fashion.
      The scarf is still used to protect the head/hairstyle, but it is just as important to look good in the process. Scarves have also gained popularity (because of their functionality) among female cancer patients who have experienced hair-loss as a result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. The following methods of wearing scarves will serve you well, regardless of your motive for wearing them:

Scarves as Garments
      Apart from their use as headwear, scarves can be extremely versatile and can be used as apparel in other ways. Learning the following techniques can enable you to make the most of your wardrobe by adding an additional measure of versatility. You can add a couple of scarves to your suitcase when traveling and be prepared to create additional looks from your existing selection of clothes. Their compact nature also means that you can add new looks without needing additional luggage to accommodate them.
      The following scarf-tying techniques will allow you to fully realize the versatility of your wardrobe:
Skirt Wrap
      Halter / Blouse
Scarves as Accessories
      The most prominent use for scarves is as a fashion accessory. A bold, beautiful scarf can add a splash of color to an otherwise severe-looking or
plain garment, and can add a touch of softness and femininity to a suit. The variety of shapes, colors, patterns and fabrics mean that scarves are imminently versatile, and a style can be found to compliment any outfit.
      The following scarf-tying techniques will allow you to make the most of your scarves, regardless of the look you are trying to achieve:
The Long Tie
      The Neck Wrap
      Bandana Wrap
      Ascot Wrap
      Two-Shoulder Wrap
      Side-Knotted Belt
      Scarf as Traditional Belt
Scarves with Pins:
      As we've seen, scarves can be knotted and worn in many different ways. But what about those times when you just want to have a scarf to add a splash of color or a little flair to an outfit? One of the great things about scarves are their versatility, and the way they can be combined with other accessories to change the look and feel of an outfit. Below are a few ideas for doing this:
Over the Shoulder, with Jewelry Pin
      Shawl Style, with Jewelry Pin
      Cowl Style, with Jewelry Pin
      Scarves can add a tremendous amount of variety to an otherwise simple wardrobe. The sheer number of styles, fabrics, colors and patterns available with scarves make them an excellent accessory to add to your wardrobe. You can find scarves that are suited to virtually any style of dress. From scarves made with thick rough-spun wool and silk yarns, to fine, satiny silks and rayon fabrics you can make any look that much more special by adding the right kind of scarf.
