Scarves always looks so chic – yet when it comes to styling them on myself, they feel fussy. But I think I figured out an easy trick to wearing them and keeping them in place! Click through to see how I style a skinny scarf!
This floral silk skinny scarf is part of Ann Taylor’s collaboration with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The scarf costs $29.50, and 90% of its purchase price goes to BCRF. There are 3 scarves in this series – this floral one, which represents Strength, a star print for Inspiration, and a butterfly print for Hope. These skinny scarves can be tied on a ponytail, on your wrist or even on a handbag, but I wanted to try wearing it around my neck.
I folded it in half lengthwise (to make it thinner), and placed it around the collar of my blouse. I then double-knotted it in place – my “trick” was to place a tiny safety pin under my blouse and through the scarf, so that the scarf wouldn’t slide around or slip out of place. It worked pretty well – it was very windy when I took these pics, but my scarf stayed exactly where I wanted it to! It’s definitely made me feel more confident about adding scarves to my outfits!
The rest of my outfit is also from Ann Taylor. Since I was feeling adventurous, I chose these wide leg sailor jeans – definitely a different silhouette than my usual outfits! I think they’ll also work really well with long-sleeve blouses and turtleneck sweaters as the weather gets colder. To balance the fashion forward jeans and scarf, I kept the rest of the outfit familiar and classic – with a pretty ruffle blouse and suede tassel heels.
