ShenWendys Eclectic Guide :: Playing with Scarves




Ever wondered what you can do with an ordinary scarf? I love to wear scarves! There are numerous creative and fashionable ways for you to use scarves to add punch and color to your everyday look.

You can buy scarves anywhere...Takashimaya, Isetan, Accesorize, Robinsons, flea markets, or you can even raid your Mom or Grandmother's closets (as you have for vintage handbags and jewelry). There's no need to break the bank to add a little pizzaz to what you are wearing. You can spend anywhere from $5 upwards to say $500 or more.

Now, how in the world do you use scarves really?

You can wear it as a top paired with a black pencil skirt or a beige flair skirt








As a long maxi dress




As a choker necklace or necktie to jazz up a black top






You can use it as a belt to jazz up an outfit






It can even be a mini-tote bag to bring out 




Another favorite of mine is by tying a scarf around my handbag! You can either tie a simple bow or wrapped round one of the handles!






Transform it into a Kimono for your daughter's school functions such as "International Friendship Day" or "Racial Harmony" where they are encouraged to where a traditional costume from another country.




Other ways to add scarves to your look, is to wrap them around your head. I'm not a fan of this look, so have chosen not to add a visual to this post. Don't get "tied" down by any one tie or look...find the one you like most, or a couple that works best for you.
