This square scarf is hands-down my most versatile accessory. It adds those fancy French feels to any outfit, and the subdued colors make for easy matching. I got this posh piece from Urban Outfitters a couple years ago, and I’ve been finding new ways to wear it ever since. My favorite way (and probably the most intuitive) is in a simple knot around my neck. The trick to pulling this off is to tie it loosely enough to not look stuffy, but high enough to maintain some balance and so the ends have shape. For optimal Parisian vibes, a red lip and chic loafers are très bon (thanks Google). Another way I’ll occasionally wear this scarf is with the knot spun around to the back of my neck. But there are a couple other ways to get more mileage out of this accessory, as shown below.
Try it tied around a medium-to-low pony. If it’s too high, you run the risk of looking a few steps away from saddle oxfords and poodle skirt. But if you’re into that, fine. Just like…find a new blog. Another easy trick for added flair is to tie it around the handle of a structured purse. Not that I would dare to suggest any Kate Spade creation needs to be altered, but on special occasions I’d consider it acceptable.
