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.
Do you add scarves to your outfits? How do you style them?

First off, I love this whole outfit SO much! And secondly, I’ve always struggled to wear skinny scarves myself, they’re always moving around or unraveling, so the tip with the safety pin is such a good idea!

I only started this year buying scarves. Most of the time, I didn’t think about them. I usually prefer necklaces, chains etc. But the scarves I’ve bought are long ones. I sometimes struggle to find ways of wearing them in a cute way.
