How to Wear an Oversized Scarf

How to wear an oversized scarf. It can be done and SIMPLY, ladies (I promise!). I was on Pinterest last night searching around for different ways to tie a scarf for a project I’m doing with my niece, and I came across SO MANY blog posts on a million-jillion different ways to fold, wear, wrap, tie, fold, etc. them. Mama mia! It’s a scarf, it shouldn’t be something complicated. It should be easy for you to do, not like prepping for brain surgery. I love fashion to be fun and fabulous and chic… but I also want it to be easy, not something I’m working on (especially tying a scarf) for over 10 minutes.

So for today, I thought it would be fun to show the easiest of easiest ways to wear an over-sized scarf.  Here’s the easier way to do it:

How to wear an oversized scarf

  1. Find a slimming shirt to wear as the “base.”
  2. Wear a pair of jeans/pants/trousers that have a straight or skinny leg fit.

That’s it!

How to Wear an Oversized Scarf

The reason you want a slimming or tighter fitted shirt is because you don’t want any extra layers when you’re pairing it with an over-sized scarf. You want the scarf to be the focus, not your shirt. As far as the straight/skinny fit pant, same reasoning. You want your shirt and pant to hold the scarf perfectly, not have the scarf look like it’s adding extra anything to your look of the day. It’s also a slimming way to wear an over-sized scarf because you can (literally) hide any problems areas you might have — mine is my stomach! I’ve got a pouch from my 5 kids!
