Connecticut in Style – A Connecticut-based lifestyle blog by Sarah O’Brien
Baby it’s cold outside. The temperatures are well below freezing here on the East Coast, and while I truly love the cold weather (I really do) I can’t leave my home without getting bundled from head to toe. And, if I’m leaving the house with my husband, he’s always giving me “the once over” to make sure that he thinks that I’m dressed appropriately for the weather. I know that this doesn’t have anything to do with scarves, but I have to share that he always glances at my shoes and then asks me if they are comfortable. Argh! Can you imagine ANYTHING worse than someone asking you that? I’d be mortified if anyone looked at me and thought that I was wearing sensible shoes. That’s the kiss of death in fashion. When my husband remarks about my shoes, I give him “the look” then I hope he’ll never ask me again. But he always does. I need to work on my look or I need to stop going out with him. Guess which way I am leaning? (kidding).
When it’s this cold, the only thing that anyone can see of me is my coat and boots and it’s not terribly stylish. Worse, they are in the same color family and I look washed out. One of the easiest and most chic things I do to elevate my winter style is to wear scarves. They add color, dimension and interest to any outfit and you can really mix things up by tying a scarf in several different ways. What’s great about all these options is that they change the mood of the outfit from casual to really chic. Here are 12 ways to tie a scarf that are guaranteed to warm things up.
