Alina’s Take on Wearing a Scarf

scarf1bI am a huge fan of the scarves as I believe it’s not just an accessory, it’s a necessity and major part of the wardrobe if you want to spice up your look and create different images. Scarves are necessity because you can quickly cover up or dress up in a wide variety of beautiful patterns and fabrics. What is amazing about the scarves, it’s more than one way to wear them!

I am delighted to share with you my favourite options for how to rock a scarf in a business world. Is it possible to cover your hair with a scarf in the office? There are many ways how you can wear a scarf around your neck or waist; you can even make a dress out of a scarf. However, I haven’t seen much info about how to wear the scarf properly on your head, therefore, I’m happy to suggest a few ideas. I say yes to wearing a scarf to cover or accessorise your hair. I probably would not wear a turban to a meeting if you are working in banking or consulting community, however, it’s appropriate to cover up your hair in a classic way by tying a scarf around your neck or simply draping it around the shoulder. I think a scarf really helps to create a fresh, different and edgy look. Therefore, I invest in scarves! Below are my Top 5 ways how to wear a scarf on your head.

scarf1aHow to rock a square silky scarf? My number one favourite way is to cover your hair by tying it under the chin. I call it Jacky Kennedy style. You can wear this option with a dress, a suite and you would look professional but elegant and feminine at the same time. Wear it with a pair of big shades or aviator style sunglasses to add a bit off glamour.

scarf2I love turban style because it’s so 60s, so chic, retro and so Elizabeth Taylor. Turban would add an edgy and provocative look to your business suite or an office dress. So I would try this look on Friday, especially if you have plans to go out after work.

In a winter, draping a shawl around your head and shoulders would soften your business style and make you look stunning.

Below are a couple ideas from other fashion blogs on how to wear a scarf. You can also get more ideas from fashion houses like Hermes. When you buy Hermes scarf it comes with knotting cards that show you how to wear it.
