ALL IN THE DETAILS: Snow Survival—Chunky Scarves

March 10th, 2016 at 2:00am

Everyone knows that an outfit cannot be complete without a few accessories to put the look together. This Fashionista perfectly exemplified this idea by tying together her winter look using a very prominent accessory: the chunky knit scarf. This accessory is essential during the colder months, because it adds warmth, proportion and texture to any outfit. This type of scarf can complement anyone who wants to make a statement and it will definitely turn heads if paired appropriately with the right pieces.

On a very snowy day on campus (as you can see), this Fashionista survived the frigid temperatures by wearing a tan, knit chunky scarf from Forever 21. Paying attention to its large size, she perfectly complements the scarf with a gray parka jacket that ties around the midsection to identify her waist so she is not hidden beneath all the thick layers, and through this she creates different proportions in the silhouette of this look. The jacket is paired with dark denim skinny jeans and burgundy, fur-lined Dr. Marten boots, and the look is topped off with a leather studded cross-body purse. The scarf is a neutral tone that goes along with the earth tones within the outfit. She keeps the look very casual and appropriate for any simple occasion.

How To: If you want to imitate this look, this type of scarf can be found in many typical women’s clothing stores during the fall and winter seasons, such as Forever 21, H&M, Top Shop, Zara and more. It can be worn in a variety of different ways, but if you are looking to follow the latest trend, the best way to wear a scarf this size is to loosely wrap it entirely around the neck to give the thick, chunky effect that is so popular this season. Keep in mind that the look is meant to be oversized, so don’t feel insecure if you feel a little out of your comfort zone drowning in this massive scarf, just tell yourself that you are staying on trend and keeping extra warm at the same time!
