Belted Layers

Olivia Palermo has long been one of my style icons because she is so skilled at mixing pieces in fresh new ways + her looks are always polished and chic.  So when I came across this image of her wearing a scarf belted over her outfit, I knew I wanted to give it a try.  What I love about this style is that it can work in the fall (with a plaid blanket scarf), in the winter (with a knit or cashmere scarf) and in the spring (with a woven or silk scarf).  It creates a flattering shape, gives your look some added interest and, most importantly, keeps you warm.

For those of you participating in the Winter Shopping Freeze with me, I will be posting a challenge at the beginning of each week on my Facebook page to help give you remixing ideas for your wardrobe.  So, this week's challenge is to wear a scarf differently than you normally do.  I've included several ideas on Facebook or you can browse Pinterest for more inspiration.  Try tying or draping it in a new way, belting it as I did here or mixing a printed scarf with a patterned top - have fun, get creative & see what you can come up with!  

What I'm wearing:
Warehouse Coat (similar here, here or here), H&M Scarf, Ann Taylor Belt (similar here or here), 
LOFT Coated Jeans (similar here or here), c/o a.n.a Booties (similar), ASOS Clutch (similar here or here), 
Nadri Earrings, BaubleBar Rings (similar here & here), Nails: Sally Hansen Tickled Pink
