Sassy Scarves

Scarves can really add flair to any outfit!  Regardless if you wear a scarf as an accessory, to keep warm or protect your head from the sun, the scarf is a timeless and classy wardrobe essential.  Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jackie O have all helped to give the scarf that 'classy' and 'elegant' appeal.  French women know how to work the scarf, tying it and wrapping it in such effortless, yet classic ways!  I personally love to wear a scarf with a trench coat and pair of jackie O sunglasses!!!  Here is my little tribute to the 'Sassy Scarf':

Grace Kelly had such a soft, feminine look and she knew how to wear a scarf to compliment her elegant look.  She looked particularily feminine with a head scarf - it became a look she was remembered for and a look many women have channeled since!

This women looks fantastic in her head scarf - I love how the colours in the scarf compliment the grey toned suit she is wearing - I also admire how sexy her hair looks, with soft, long peices caressing her face - it looks so feminine and timeless!

I 'Love' how this white scarf is tied around this models hair! Its a variation of the head scarf, but its a whole other look - its very elegant, yet at the same time it carries an element of drama and sophistication.  I also love how this model is wearing a low cut. almost backless top - it really accentuates the look of the scarf and makes her earings a central focus!  I just love this look!

What a chic way to tie a scarf! - This is a great example of using a scarf as an accessory - it relaces the need to wear a necklace - it adds such flair and I love the pattern of this scarf!!!

Katie Holmes really knows how to use a scarf to add flair to her outfits - she often uses them to accessorize a more casual jeans and sweater look.  I've been paying attention to Katie's 'look' recently and she has that balance between Euro-chic and Urban New York flair - I love how she can channel elegance and comfort both at the same time!!!

I just adore this grey, ruffled scarf!  I love how some scarves are casual, while others (like this one) are more dramatic and elegant.  This scarf would look amazing over a feminine dress or flowing skirt.  I could also see it working with a pair of flaired black dress pants and a crisp white shirt with pearl drop earings.  I want this scarf!!!

Last but not least, I needed to pay tribute to how classic a scarf can look on a man!  I love how Brad Pitt works this scarf - he looks so handsome and so sophisticated in an old Hollywood kind of way - it reminds me of that Carey Grant, Gregory Peck look!  I think more men should be sporting and wearing scarves - its a very appealing accessory and its totally sexy!!!

I hope that you enjoyed my little tribute to scarves - Scarves are not just for a cold, winter day, they should be celebrated and worn often - tied simply or wrapped elegantly around the shoulders!  The best part is, there are so many different patterns and prints for a scarf and you can really compliment any look with a scarf.  You can play up a casual look or enhance an already dramatic look, adding that extra bit of sophistication!  Regardless of the look you are trying to achieve, give the 'sassy scarf' a chance to transform your wardrobe!!!

i think a large square scarf worn over the shoulder of a long trench coat looks very stylish and elegant on a lady.

I agree - scarves and trench coats are 'made' for one another!!! I'm going to try wearing it like that the next time I wear my trench! Thanks!!!
