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!
