STYLE GURU STYLE: Spice it up with a Skinny Scarf

April 5th, 2016 at 2:06am

The stress of classes, work and basically being an adult can consume your creativity when getting dressed for the day. Though i’m a Style Guru, like all students, I sometimes find myself in a fashion funk. As I recently looked at my own wardrobe, I saw that I was wearing the same outfits on repeat. Whenever I need to pick myself out of a style rut, i’ve found that accessories are always an easy solution!

In John Galliano’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection, many of the looks throughout his show incorporated skinny scarves. The models looked cool-girl chic as they wore skinny scarves draped over blouses, dresses and even T-shirts. I remember seeing the collection and immediately falling in love with seeing how versatile the accessory was.

For this look, I tried out the trend by donning a colorful vintage skinny scarf I recently purchased from a thrift store. To draw attention to my scarf, I purposefully kept the rest of my look very simple and wore a plain black T-shirt, which I tucked into a pair of high-waisted jeans. I also wore my favorite pair of black booties and a small leather cross-body bag. To finish it off, I swiped on a candy apple shade of red lipstick to match the pop of red found in my scarf.

Scarves are classic accessories that have been worn by Fashionistas throughout the ages. Also, scarves are typically inexpensive so they are ideal for those who are trying to stay trendy while on a college student budget. For anyone who is tired of wearing the same old stuff, a skinny scarf is the perfect accessory to spice things up!
