Swap belt for scarf

A stylish way to wear scarves that I am loving now is to wear the scarf as a belt. You can either use a small silk scarf or square scarf (that can go around your waist). You can use a silk scarf as a belt for your pants or skirts. Fold the scarf to make it thin (similar to the size of a belt) then pass it through your belt holes in your pants. You can tie in front as a bow or to the side.

Scarf with work wear

Scarves are also super stylish for work outfits. For some of us, the scarf is a simple way to dress stylishly for your cold. For warmth, pashmina, as well as the blanket scarf, is perfect. It keeps you warm at the office in place of taking in too much hot coffee or tea. If your aim of using a scarf is just for style, opt for colorful silk scarves. One stylish way to wear a silk scarf with your workwear is to wear it long with your blazer. Also, you can tie the scarf on your neck in a bow with your dress to look chic.
