Belt up ! – 7 Slick Ways to Style your Scarf

Written by Sally



I love scarves of all kinds – I inherited all my grandmother’s and have quite a collection.

It is great showing clients how to style them as a scarf can make a huge difference to an everyday outfit quicker than you can say Jessica Alba.

But if you want to play around a bit more then read on



1. Belt that Blanket Cape 


There are heaps of these blanket capes around so work the stripes or navajo print a different way and belt it. This is me on the way to Yoga – not a big ” go around in my gym gear type of gal” so I am wearing it underneath.

2. Clash that print 

So this works best transeasonallyin the warmer seasons but it is a good one to remember over a pretty dress – florals clash with florals works well. Olivia Palermo is a genius at this but love this girl.







3. Belted Scarf or Throw with Flares 

Love this look with flares – works well too if you have stripes or clashing check showing out from the long sleeve. Great everyday look.





4. Belted over a Maxi Dress 

This can work in summer with a silk scarf or in winter to winterise your maxi. Great for that Boho Luxe look with boots.







5. Belted over one shoulder 

Love this look with this sheath dress but it could work over anything.

6. Belted over chunky knit and sleeveless vest 

Love the contrast of the colours with the muted neutral tones – a great way to style your sleeveless vest in a different way.







7. Belted under a coat or coatigan 


Love how she has belted it underneath – a great option if you want to add a little bit of warmth or don’t want to add too much bulk.
