Paris Chic – Add a Blanket Scarf

If you want to add a chic Paris vibe to your outfit wrap yourself with the blanket scarf. Wound around your neck or draped nonchalantly over shoulders, this cold-weather comfort is a must-buy for AW15. Wear yours over a thick knitted sweater with skinnies and flat boots, or over a leather jacket and say: Hello, Fall!

Here are a few of the styles I love.

Colour Block Scarves

Nothing says chic like a silk scarf. Whether you favor a wrap around or loose knot style, wearing colorful scarves which are so versatile, lend a look of cool elegance to a classic ensemble.

In everything from rich jeweled accents and animal print to monochrome and abstract prints, they are guaranteed to steal the show. Use them cautiously!

How to Instantly Make Your Outfit More Interesting

Back in 2008 I wrote this post about how adding a headband to your outfit will make it instantly more interesting. I want to add some additional details on the instant interesting list.

A scarf worn as a head band – adds instant chicness to your look

Have a playful bag that gets instant attention – a speech bubble or

Or wear a stylish backpack instead of your purse

Have a coat with a furry texture and wear it with It-girl separates, like skinny jeans and moto boots.

How to Fringes

Fringes are experiencing a huge comeback. You can add them to any outfit and make it pop.  The runways — Michael Kors, Chanel, Lanvin, Guy Laroche — have given us plenty of inspiration for fall. While wearing fringes evokes the Old West, it is a modern way to add garnish and movement to a look. And you can dress it up or down as you please.

During the day, you can take a more subtle approach by throwing on a fringed bag, a kimono, a scarf or a belt.

 

You can pair your fringe bag with a statement sweatshirt and ripped jeans.

 

In the evening, you can go wilder and bolder.
