ALL IN THE DETAILS: Statement Scarves

Statement pieces are also known as the standout elements that really bring an outfit to life. That is exactly what came to mind when I spotted one of my favorite Fashionistas on my campus. I always love seeing my fellow students put extra effort into their outfits for the day while keeping cool and comfortable.

Scarves have always been one of the consistent and classic trends that are carried over each season. It’s one of the most versatile accessories that can instantly dress up or dress down an outfit while being an easy addition that can add that necessary edge or flair. Scarves are the ultimate transitional piece from fall/winter to spring/summer. Considering all of the endless ways you can style them, they are all around fashionable and functional. 

This Fashionista’s scarf really adds that additional edge to her outfit that makes it stand out, proving that sometimes the success of an outfit truly lies within the details. For her total look, the scarf of choice is from Free People, and one of the details that made it stand out to me is the intricacy of how she tied and wrapped it. She draped her scarf over a great T-shirt with leather accented sleeves paired with light wash skinny jeans from GUESS by Marciano. She finished it off with some black leather boat shoes from Coach, a silver kate spade new york watch and a Brighton necklace. This look is fashion-forward while being effortlessly cool and chic with the scarf acting as that ideal statement piece. This is perfect for a day out on the town, lunch dates, class or just running errands.

How To: Have an outfit that just doesn’t seem complete? Does it seem to be calling for a little extra element? A scarf is the perfect solution. It’s the adaptable element that can add the much needed flair and originality to your look.
