Scarf Style Inspiration ~ How To Layer With An Infinity Scarf

Today’s scarf style inspiration 💭 is from fashion blogger Julia who I first came across on Instagram.

03746bb8bfd250ceafd5827f15508990

You can easily spruce up your outfit by layering it with an infinity scarf. Here Julia combines the classic black and white combo with a blue and black patterned scarf. She completes the ensemble with black and silver accessories as well. A black purse and a skinny black belt accent the outfit beautifully. Silver jewelry including a braided bangle, minimal earrings and rings finish the look. Add wayfarers on a sunny day!

Black pumps let you make this outfit office ready. For a more formal look add a black blazer.

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

Pumpkin Spice

Did someone say pumpkin spice? Yup, it is that time of the year. Even though it is officially fall season, here in Toronto we have had hot summer like weather for a week now (not that I mind the bonus Indian summer days!). But it has finally cooled down and actually feels like fall. For this fall ensemble, I have gone with a brown and burgundy color theme. The sweater with the beautiful back detail just screams fall. I paired it with gray jeans and burgundy booties. Then I layered the outfit with a plaid blanket scarf and a gold bird necklace from our shop. The brown bucket handbag is added for all your knick knacks. This pumpkin spice look won’t be complete without a cute coffee mug. Also, how adorable is that burgundy pumpkin? Happy Weekend!

The forest green head scarf matching the pants combined with a striped red shirts works so well together. Just wrap a folded scarf around your head as pictured and knot it at the top.

Pirate style head scarf looks hippie but chic. I am not sure I can pull off this look but go ahead trendsetters!

Combine a bold printed scarf and a white shirt to achieve this look. Wrap a folded scarf around your head once, tie a loose bow and let the rest hang on the side for a retro look.

This style cover most of your head and will work perfect with short hair. Instead of tucking in the edges at the end just let them hang loose.

How To Turn Your Scarf Into A Crop Top, Vest Or A Skirt

I have included three pictorials on how to use a scarf to create a crop top, vest or a skirt. I personally would like to try to create the vest. Which one is your favourite style?

 As A Crop Top  

This pictorial created by Wonder Forest shows you how to turn a simple linen scarf into a crop top. The black and white crop top looks rather chic. You could wear the scarf as a crop top as shown in the pictorial or on top of a plain strapless dress to spice it up. Just make sure to secure it properly so that there is no Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction moment!

 As A Vest

The other day I was making my weekly run to the post office to mail off a few of our scarves and saw someone wearing a scarf vest. It can be a creative way to layer your outfit this summer.

As A Skirt

I love the ruched effect that is created by twisting the scarf in the front of this mini skirt. At the back I really like the asymmetrical hem line as well which is trending these days. Make sure to secure the skirt properly for a successful night out.

How To Wear Burgundy

Fall In Burgundy
Add a punch of burgundy to your outfit this fall. You can add it through your accessories for a subtle look such as a scarf or shoes or bag. For a bolder look, make your outfit stand out with a burgundy jacket, pants or shirt. Here we have added burgundy to the outfit with the jacket and the blanket scarf. The main outfit is kept casual with a gray sweater and skinny jeans. Fall will not be complete without suede! Suede booties and a tassel handbag in a neutral tan color complement the outfit. Gold goes perfectly with this warm fall color. You can accent your outfit with simple gold necklace like our birds necklace to add the finishing touches. Hope everyone is having a great Friday. Have a happy weekend!

How To Layer for Work In Summer

Office wear during summer can be tricky sometimes. It is nice and hot outside and you decide to wear that great summer outfit to work. Then you enter the chilly office….brrr. I hate feeling cold inside when the sun is shining so bright!

Layering in summer. Yes that can be the perfect solution for both men and women to stay comfortable and fashionable at work during summer.

With casual office wear becoming more and more acceptable at work, it has become easier to be both comfy and chic.

I have come up with some layering ideas to easily switch between the summer sun and the chilly office.

Layering Options For Women

Summer Office Wear

I have paired a peach blouse that can be tucked into the gray culottes with four layering options for summer office wear. These options will transition you easily from the outdoor heat to the arctic tundra inside!

Option 1: Gray Jacket

Layer your blouse with a jacket for a more formal look that is still comfortably chic. The gray jacket is not too formal but gives you that professional look while keeping you warm and comfy.

Option 2: Black Kimono

A kimono is perfect for a loose unstructured look. This black kimono will add depth and warmth to our outfit while keeping it work appropriate.

Option 3: Black Vest

If you are cold but not too cold a vest could be the perfect layering option. This belted black vest takes chic to the next level while giving you a great layering option.

Option 4: Summer Scarf

This navy floral infinity scarf can be paired with any of the above options or on its own for a chic, layered look. A scarf will give you that extra layer of cozy for those cold air conditioned offices when you are just slightly feeling the chill.

Add a few more accessories including the flats (Tory Burch), necklace (Fashionelle Studio) & and tote (Topshop) and you are all set for work!

Layering Options For Men

Summer Office Wear

Here I have paired a simple navy blue t-shirt from Tommy John and black pants from Topman with some great layering options to make it work appropriate for those chilly offices during summer! If your office prefers a more formal look, just replace the t-shirt with a collared shirt.

Option 1 : Vest

If you are feeling a little cold but don’t want to wear full sleeves, a vest can be a great choice. It will give you the right amount of coziness and at the same time creating a chic, fashionable look.

Option 2: Sports Jacket/Blazer

Go for a more formal look by layering with a sports jacket or blazer. Easy peasy to take the blazer off in the summer heat.

Option 3: Collar Knit Jacket

More informal that a sports jacket, this knit jacket has a casual, unstructured look. The collar keeps it a little more conservative. Again easy enough to take if off when stepping outside.

Option 4: Cardigan

Last but not the least, a button down cardigan can help make your outfit look professional and at the same time help you deal with the office AC.

 

Share your tips with us! Besides layering how do you stay warm at work with the AC blasting?

Mother’s Day Giveaway!

I don’t know about you but I have yet to buy a gift for my mom for mother’s day. My sister and I usually both pitch in and give my mom something together. My mom is easy to gift so we will just have to brainstorm a little and find that special gift for her.

If you are looking to buy something for yourself (yes it is ok to gift yourself!) or your mom for Mother’s Day, Etsy is a great place to shop. For those who are not familiar with Etsy, it is an online marketplace where you can find some great handmade gifts.

So for those of you who have waited to buy something (procrastinating can have some pros!), you are in for a treat. I have collaborated with two awesome shops to hold a Mother’s Day giveaway on Instagram.

Clay N Wire creates some amazing modern and unique polymer clay jewelry.

Fashion Friday Humour

I have been missing in action from my blog for a while now. Things were a little hectic with my etsy shop (which is a good thing!) plus all the family get togethers during the holiday season kept me pretty busy. So the blog has been off my radar. What’s better than to start the year with some fashion humour! Happy Friday everyone.
