Buying Scarves

Scarves are an essential winter accessory for anyone who endures a cold-climate locale, but they also offer a stylish accent regardless of your location or the season. With classic charm and modern style, fashion scarves offer a unique look for everyone. With several types of scarves, paired with hundreds of ways to wear them, you can find a scarf trend that fits your everyday style.

 


Types of Scarves

Neck scarves

The basic design is a strip of fabric that can wrap or tie around your neck, but the fabrics, lengths, styles and decorative accents vary greatly.

  • Versatility - The biggest benefit of neck scarves is their extensive flexibility. If you like to change your look throughout the season, you can wear these scarves in several different ways.
  • Winter weather - Scarves made with heavy materials, like wool, are designed to shield you against the cold wind and snow. Thicker styles can even cover your neck and face for extra coverage.  

Infinity scarves

These wrap-around scarves are circular without ends. They loop around your neck like a necklace made of loose fabric.

  • Hassle-free - If you don't want to mess with trying to tie your scarf everytime you leave the house or readjust it throughout the day, an infinity scarf is easy to grab and go.
  • All-season - There are stylish inifity scarves in winter and summer weights, so you can use it as an accessory all year long.

Head scarves

Head scarves are pieces of fabric designed to wrap around your head in a variety of styles and provide full coverage.

  • Hair loss - If your hair is thinning a head scarf or head wrap can be a stylish and inexpensive way to cover yourself.
  • Extra warmth - Using a head scarf made of chunky knit fabrics will hold in precious heat during frigid days outside.

Shawls

These large scarves are long and wide; they have enough surface area to cover a woman's shoulders and arms.

  • Formal events - When you're wearing a sleeveless or strapless gown, you may want something light to cover your shoulders while maintaining a formal look.
  • Cool evenings - Some shawls are made of thicker fabrics that can keep you warm when the temperatures start to drop.

Features of Scarves

Length

  • Short - Short scarves are best for wearing as head scarves or in place of a necklace around your neck
  • Medium - Medium-length scarves can be less bulky than longer scarves if you want to wrap them around your neck
  • Long - Long scarves offer flexibility when it comes to fashion trends, as you can wrap and tie them in a variety of styles

 

 

 


Width

  • Tying - Some scarves are easier to manipulate, knot and scrunch than others because of the amount of fabric they use.
  • Wide - Wide scarves can double as shawls, hoods and even clothing like skirts and shirts.
  • Narrow - Thin, narrow scarves are perfect if you want a splash of color without the bulk of a big scarf wrapped around your neck.

 


Fabrics

  • Summer - Summer scarves are made of lighter fabrics that create an airy, billowy look without weighing you down
  • Transition seasons - Spring and autumn scarves come in a variety of different types of fabrics, some heavy and some light, in colors that match the season
