How to: Use scarves in new ways

Here at Street Scene, we have scarves in every color, shape, and print, unfortunately sometimes it is hard to figure out how to incorporate scarves into your everyday outfits.  We have racked our brains to come up with some new and easy ideas for wearing scarves with your upcoming holiday outfits!


 OUTFIT #1- MARSHMELLOW WORLD
Who says all holiday outfits have to be traditional red and green? Beautiful pastels and deep jewel tones can also evoke holiday spirit when they come in sparkly knits, and bright plaids! This outfit features a shimmery purple sweater paired with a jewel tone plaid skirt. A cute crochet winter hat tops off the outfit, and matches perfectly with the colors in the skirt. In the first photo we used a bright teal scarf as a belt. You can achieve this look by taking any long, skinny scarf and tying it around the waist or hips, either as a sash or a bow.

In the second photo we created our own corsage using a beautiful turquoise, gold, red, and purple printed small scarf. We simply gathered the scarf into a flower shape then secured it with a matching brooch in the center. You can use this trick to attach scarf flowers to just about anything, from jewelry and hats, to belts or handbags!

SKIRT-$12
SWEATER-$15
BELT SCARF- $3
NECKLACE-MAGENTA-$12, GREEN $7
Both winter hats-$8
BROOCH-$20
CROSAGE SCARF:$6



 

OUTFIT #2- CHRISTMAS VACATION
For an everyday holiday look, there are several different ways to tie your favorite vintage scarf around your neck. This outfit is cozy and casual, perfect for holiday shopping, traveling, or lounging by the fireplace! The outfit features evergreen knit pants, a red-stitched, fitted blue jean shirt, and a cozy, oversized faux fur jacket. For our first look, we tied this vintage plaid scarf around the neck like a bandana. To achieve this look, simply fold your scarf into a triangle shape, wrap around your neck with the point of the triangle facing down, and finally tie a small knot around back to secure. This is a stylish alternative to a traditional winter scarf, and can be worn with or without a coat or jacket.

 


For our second look, we draped the scarf underneath the collar and tied in a simple knot around front. This is a great idea to brighten up any boring button-down shirt for the holidays.

PLAID FRINGE SCARF-$10
BLUE JEAN TOP-$12
CONSIGNMENT FAUX FUR-$67.50
KNIT PANTS-$12
EARMUFFS-$5





OUTFIT #3- DECK THE HALLS

Our final outfit is perfect for a holiday party or dinner. The look features a cranberry velvet mini dress, with a simple skinny gold belt, a hair clip, and festive necklace. For our first look, we dressed up our skinny gold belt by tying this poinsettia hankie around the buckle. This can work great on almost every kind of belt with a small scarf or hankie. In our second look, we tied the hankie in a small bow around a necklace with coordinating colors. The different bow and sash ties can be used on either the belt or necklace, giving you different options to change up your look!

GOLD STRETCHY BELT-$8
POINSETTIA HANKIE-$3
RED AND GOLD BEADED NECKLACE-$8
