My favorite way to style a scarf is to layer it with a cardigan or jacket. A small scarf can look fabulous with just a simple top--like a crew neck or V-neck. But a larger scarf (below) layered with a cardigan or jacket is so cozy. Here I am in Monfort, France, on vacation, looking very relaxed, don't you think? While I do like to twist and tie a scarf to create different looks, there are times when I'm just as happy to wrap the scarf around my neck a couple of times and leave it at that.
I also love a wide scarf because I can throw it in my handbag and pull it out if the air or air conditioning is a little chilly. Just having something over my shoulders (below) makes a big different in my comfort level. And, yes, I love the arm-covering benefit.
WHERE TO SHOP
These days, you'll find scarves just about everywhere--including in drug stores! Here's one from Jones New York and below it, an Old Navy Scarf.
Finally, here's another scarf tying lesson with the same Eileen Fisher model. Many of the techniques are similar to the first video, but there are a few new ones as well.
