I have a bunch of scarves lying in my closet basically going to rot. I never wear them! First off, it’s not that cold in Bangalore, so I’ve never felt the need, but of late I’ve been realising how damn COOL a light cotton scarf looks just as an accessory!
There are literally hundreds of ways to wear a scarf, so one of my resolutions for the new year is going to be to experiment with scarf wearing and see where it takes me! I wore a scarf yesterday with an old black t-shirt which I hadn’t worn in ages and ages. It was a terrible, out of shape t-shirt with an iron stain. All that was completely hidden under the scarf, wasn’t it? 🙂
Mango, Zara, Accessorize all sell scarves for around Rs. 1000+. I saw a bunch of scarves on Myntra.com for less around Rs. 200, but I’m not sure of the quality of the fabric. You could even pick up half-meter or quarter-meter fabulous fabric from stores and get your own scarves stitched for a fraction of the cost. Or tear up some old chunnies and convert them into scarves. Getting a few new scarves could totally transform your wardrobe and can make a simple outfit look fabulous. So before you drop thousands of rupees on a new dress, try transforming it with a scarf.
Quick tip: Always remember to wear a printed scarf with a solid, single coloured top, and you should be fine.
