I find myself not knowing what to wear every morning lately. I know odd right, considering I’m a stylist. But my issue isn’t my clothes, my issue is the weather. I’ve lived in Chicago all my life, I should be used to the frozen tundra to the desert heat all in one day, but for some reason this spring is throwing me. I want to wear bright colors, short sleeves, and springtime trends, but I’m cold. I know later it will get hot, and then get cold again. I know I could grab a sweater, but that’s not doing it for me.
Solution: a scarf!
I went through the trend a few years ago where I wouldn’t be seen out of the house without a scarf. I have quite the collection. Some I love, some I hate now, and some that are just a bit useless and frayed. Although the scarves are still in style, I personally outdid it. So it was not initially my natural inclination to grab a scarf. But then I saw this awesome video from Nordstrom’s. It shows all the millions of ways to wear a scarf and my passion for scarfs came back.
I love adding the pop of color and style to my wardrobe. I love that I can make one scarf do so many different things. I love that the scarf transforms the outfit into a whole new one. But mostly I love that when I get cold I have the solution at my fingertips, and when I get hot, off it comes. And as a bonus I’ve even used my scarf to wrap my daughter up in when she was cold, and I have to admit I even used it once as an impromptu burp cloth- although that I don’t recommend.
What do you think of all the different ways to wear your scarf?
