Jacket Scarves

Any true fashionista knows the ultimate truth about scarves - they look heavenly with jackets. If you wear yours right, you're going to be the envy of every girl in town - they're either going to want to be you, or will be copying you already.

Jackets and scarves together have a magical chemistry. So whether you ace at fashion or struggle to keep up, this is one combo you just can't go wrong with!

The truth is - it all lies in the design and staging. Winter scarves come with some added volume, and their arrangements can make the world of a difference.

Jazzing it Up

Plain tops don't always look as great as you think they do. So just spice this up with a bright new scarf and, there - Your fashion sense just got a whole lot better!

Scarves are ideal for giving those everyday clothes a touch of newness. If you feel like you've worn something far too many times, change it up with this little addition.

If this doesn't give you added swag, I don't know what does! The trick is to choose a scarf that stands out, taking the attention away from your regular clothes.

So unless you're walking around in a jacket that you want everyone to notice - don't wear a scarf that matches it perfectly. Colors that stand out are more likely to captivate, and no one will notice you're still wearing yesterday's top!

Depending on the weather, and your style, there are plenty of different ways for throwing on this little accessory. So try out all the different knots and styles to see which suits you best. 

And the best part is, they make the easiest transition from the exhausting work-zone to chilling out at the bar next door!
