STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Skinny Scarf

We’ve all had those days where we got dressed and just felt, well, boring. One of my biggest challenges with my own personal style is that I feel too basic. Fashion is supposed to be a means to express yourself, so everyday when styling myself, I look to stand out.  A great solution to this is to spruce up your outfit with a unique, trendy accessory. On this Fashionista, she chose to add some magic to her outfit with a skinny scarf. We have been seeing this trend slowly but surely make its way into the outfits of Fashionistas/os all over.

The skinny scarf is so popular because it’s versatile and unique, yet understated. You can add a neutral colored one to your outfit, or stand out a bit more with a fun print. Now don’t get me wrong, the skinny scarf is not going to keep you warm in the winter, but it adds a fun twist to your style and is a good transitional piece as we head into the cooler months of fall.

The skinny scarf can be worn with any outfit. For instance, it looks great with dresses or shirts with a v-neck or even paired with a turtleneck. They also come in many textures, including silk, velvet, fringe, metallic and lace. I’m currently obsessing over this one at Topshop. It’s simple, with a killer pattern that stands out and turns any basic outfit into a trendy, stylish look.
