There is no accessory that can spruce up a wardrobe, add a dash of sophistication and is economically viable like this seasons hottest trend – the headscarf. The headscarf is popping up everywhere! From the runways of Burberry, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana to Proenza Schouler, the headscarf is the must-have accessory for every fashionista. The versatility of this must-have piece makes it perfect for a girl on a budget who is looking for an investment piece.
A headscarf can easily become a staple of your wardrobe. It can be tied around your head, body and even your bags to brighten winter hues. Prices range from as little as £4 to £200.
How to wear it? Try folding it into a triangle and wrapping it around your head with a bow under your chin, a la Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief. If this style is too conservative for you embrace your inner boho and fold it into a long thin piece, perfect for capturing the hippie chic look of the 60’s and 70s (think Nicole Richie and Mischa Barton).
On days you’re not in the mood to wear it around your head, the headscarf can be transformed into a necktie or bow. Wear it around your waist (think Gucci a/w 08) and it is perfect for capturing the Russian rocker look. Wrap it around an old bag and the scarf can transform a plain or old bag into a hot new piece!
With so many ways to wear it, a scarf should be everyone’s go-to accessory! Fear not fashionista, it is never too late to invest in this stylish yet timeless piece.
