I get LOTS of questions about what to wear with scarves – many people seem to feel that they’re not wearing their scarves as often as they should. So I’m going to walk you through what I think of, when I see a scarf for which someone wants suggestions.
First, the obvious way to wear a scarf – match the colors! Wearing a scarf with two differently colored garments can make it clear that this ensemble wasn’t an accident.
Next, it’s always easy to wear almost any scarf with black! The addition of another accessory in a similar color ties it all together.
Moving just a bit further afield, I think of what other neutrals are obvious with the primary color of the scarf – in this case, grey and navy are easy choices of happy color contrasts with the red and white of the scarf. As I always do, I toss in another red accessory to show that this choice was part of a plan, and not just an afterthought.
My last thought will be of more non-traditional neutrals – warm colors that look great with a touch of red…
