Adding A Piece of Chic

Adding A Piece of Chic

Hi, hello to all my Chic Word readers out there!

Today I want to talk about one item that can seriously elevate your look– no matter what!

Da, da, da, da… a scarf!

I have always been a huge fan of scarfs & lately I have been reaching for them nonstop. They work in all seasons, go with every type of outfit, & can seriously transform your look.

Not to mention they tend to be rather cheap, so if you are looking for a piece to spruce up your outfit but don’t want to break the bank, this is a great option.

I decided to showcase 2 similar looks (white blouse, black pants) & all I changed was my shoes & a scarf… Despite the fact that these outfits are very simple and easy, the scarf really transforms the look & makes for a lot of versatile outfits.

Minimalistic fashion is huge lately, & even though I love the idea and feel like it would make my life easier, I am not ready to ditch my love of an abundance of clothes & keep a minimalistic closet. However, I did want to show that if you were looking to have a more simple closet with just the basics, scarfs can definitely give you that versatility without taking up a bunch of space/having too many choices to where you are overwhelmed.

Look #1– Multi-Colored Scarf:

I wore my trusty Who What Wear Collection black skinny pants from Target with a white blouse, which is actually from Who What Wear as well. If you don’t already know this, the brand that I tend to constantly shop is Who What Wear. All of these pieces are affordable (under $60) and they have a good mix of classic & trendy pieces as well. Lastly, they are at Target, which makes shopping super easy. So simple & classic look of a white blouse paired with black trousers. Since my scarf had a lot of warm tones in it, I decided to wear a pair of nude heels with this look. Overall I think this is a great outfit for the office or even date night out, maybe wear some flats or sandals for a more relaxed/weekend look.

Look #2– Red Scarf:

Again, as you can see I’m wearing the same Who What Wear blouse & trousers, only now I’ve switched scarfs, along with my shoes. I love this red scarf because it is so fun, yet isn’t overwhelming. I decided to wear a pair of black kitten heel loafers to match the pants & make the scarf pop more. I really love this look because something about it is very classic.

What do you think of scarfs? Are you a fan like me, or do you feel like they are unnecessary… Let me know in the comments below!

Cheers & stay chic!
