How to wear new season scarves for AW15

When you consider purchasing a scarf this season, consider the colours, pattern and texture. The shape of the scarf will also affect how it can be tied and worn. Scarves with extra pompom details and metallics are in. The blanket and stripe scarf is very much on-trend and these heavier textures will keep you warm throughout winter. We’ve also included light weight scarves for our readers up north who don’t experience much of a cold winter.

Serapes are a scarf worn like a cape. The material has a cut out so that the serape can drape over the shoulders. Look out for blanket serapes as they hit the stores this season. Serapes are great for layering over long sleeve tees or light weight knits.

To get the lowdown on how to wear your scarf this season, we have three popular trends for you to try.

First is the belted look. Drape your scarf around your neck and use your belt to cinch in over the scarf at your waist. This is a flattering look because it draws in the bulk of the scarf making you look thinner.

The next trends is to wear your scarf diagonal. Tie your scarf normally around your neck, but twist it so it is worn diagonal with the scarf ends draped over your shoulder. This technique works for larger, blanket style scarves.

The last trend is to wear your scarf caped. The easiest way to do this is to purchase a serape, but you can also drape square scarf open over your shoulders to create a similar look.
