Evening Scarf Styles

The once very humble scarf that hung around in the wardrobe is fast becoming the style diva of modern fashion accessories. No longer have the stylish bags and shoes got it their own way,they have to match in with the ever growing army of scarf styles. The humble scarf has been called eye candy for a new generation. So what is this all about, what should we be wearing on our evenings out and whirlwind social calendar?

“When I wear a silk scarf, I feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman”

This was said by, Audrey Hepburn. It also seems that Brigitte Bardot, Grace Kelly, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon agreed with her, by constantly being seen in scarves. They wore them during the day and also at chic social functions. If it was good enough for them,then I think we should take the hint.

Evening Scarf Tips

  • Scarves add a special finishing touch; they are often the focal point of an outfit. Make the most of a plain dress, by adding a splash of colour around the neck. Create different ways to wear it by experimenting with twisting, knotting, looping and draping.
  • Scarves are relatively inexpensive, so you can have a drawer full for every season and occasions. Having said they are inexpensive, did you know that one designed by Henri Matisse, sold for 4.8 million at a Christies auction?
  • Try a Royal blue scarf with a black dress.
  • A Summer scarf will go with a cocktail dress.
  • A Darker green scarf will go with black suit type clothes, and brown or red with dark blue.
  • Try a white scarf with leather.
  • Put opposite textures together, e.g. courser coat with smooth silk scarf or smooth coat with textured fluffy scarf.
  • Use the scarf as a trendy head wrap to go with oriental style clothes.
  • Beware the rainbow scarf unless you are heading to a football match.
  • If the scarf is complex and highly coloured then the rest of what you are wearing should be more subdued.

Many top fashion designers are now including scarves in their collections, for us it is all about being your own stylist. A spokesman for Bloomingdales puts the rise in interest in scarves down to a world, where every purchase has now more than one function. The scarf covers numerous possibilities both as a fashion statement, weather protection and also as a religious head cover.
