Solid and Striped Scarves

Scarves are an indispensable accessory no matter what your style. Make sure you choose yours wisely!

Scarves are an indispensable part of anyone’s wardrobe. They are perfect for every season, they come in a variety of colors, prints, patterns, materials and finishes, and can be worn in so many ways that it could take you months to wear a different style every day. Spring is a great season for scarves. The transitional weather calls for versatile and practical clothing and accessories, and scarves do just that. They can provide warmth from cool breezes just as well as add some depth to an outfit. It’s useful for anyone to have at least a handful of these fashion accessories and to vary their pieces. Having some solids and some stripes can go a long way.

When it comes to solid colors, it’s always nice to have a variety. Try to have at least one neutral color that you can wear with absolutely everything. This will come in handy when you’re on the run, don’t have time to think about your outfit in too much detail, or even if a friend needs to borrow an accessory. You can choose the ever popular black, or any other neutral if you wear it often enough. You’ll also want to add some color in there as well. You can choose from pale to bold or jewel-toned to pastel, it’s all up to you. Choose one of each or go with one color palette and get a scarf in every color of that family. It’s up to you. Again, you might want to opt for colors that you wear often or alternatively ones that contrast with your clothing if you want to make more of a statement.

Stripes are basically the neutral of patterns. They are simple and sleek and can be matched with just about anything, except for maybe more stripes. These can be worn with other patterns as well, such as paisley, floral, geometric, you name it. Also, scarves with stripes can add some depth and dimension to an outfit while still essentially being a neutral. While you can have stripes in different colors, the most popular colors featured are often black and white, or navy and white, black and cream, or grey and white etc. These neutral accessories can do a lot for an outfit without using too much color that might clash with whatever you’re wearing.

Feel free to mix and match, experiment, and have fun. Scarves are one of the most versatile and useful accessories out there, so take as much advantage of them as you can!

Royal Blue Chiffon Scarf

What do you get when you mix one of the hottest colors with one of the most versatile accessories? A wardrobe must have, that’s what.

Royal blue is an incredibly hot color right now. It has a bold effect without being over the top and is just as elegant and regal as its namesake might suggest. Scarves are incredibly versatile fashion accessories, covering chic as well as practical, and are essential assets to any wardrobe. When you combine the two together, you have a killer accessory that can do no wrong.

This color is bright but not too much. This is great for anyone wishing to liven up their wardrobe. That is not to say that royal blue is not daring, it is still eye catching but in a completely different way than say leopard print. The nature of its color allows it to work almost like a neutral, since it is so similar and so close to navy blue, but does so with a kick, adding that extra oomph to an outfit. It is not quite a pure primary color, but leans toward the jewel-toned territory and makes any outfit look more regal and dazzling.

When it comes to scarves, they can be used for anything. They can be worn to simply keep your neck warm in winter, but the way they are worn and what they are worn with can mean a lot of different things and can be done so in many different ways. A simple way to wear this chiffon scarf, is to simply wrap it loosely around your neck to imitate an infinity scarf. If you’re going for a more sleek and sophisticated look, you can wear it draped over your shoulders as a shawl, which can also double as a cover up! And there are thousands of styles to wear it in between. Braid the ends, loop it once tightly about the neck and let the ends loosely fall over the sides of your torso, or do the simple loop-through.

Depending on the way you tie your scarf will determine whether you’re dressing up or down, but no matter what, the color is more than appropriate. This startling blue adds a dash of color to any basic tee shirt and jeans outfit and is just as appropriate if worn out to dinner or to another formal event if paired with a little black dress. This jewel tone is one of the hottest colors right now and looks great with neutrals, patterns, or when worn with other colors. Have fun and feel free to mix and match, but no matter what you choose, know you’ll look chic in this royal blue solid chiffon scarf that you can purchase at Chicastic.Royal Blue Chiffon Scarf
