Plaid scarves are not just for wearing in the wintertime. The right scarf can set off your sundress in the summer, a plain tee-shirt in the spring or a knit sweater in the fall. And, of course, the right scarf is essential for accessorizing your winter coat and keeping your neck snuggly warm.
Plaid scarves never go out of style and never go out of season. Any solid color top, coat, jacket or blouse can go from bland to pop with the addition of this basic accessory. There are so many ways to wear a scarf, including draped over your shoulders, wrapped around your neck, tied in a knot or attached with a brooch.
The scarf can also be worn around your waist, folded in a breast pocket or draped casually over your elbows and around your back. From evening wear to the beach, a scarf is one of the most versatile and convenient accessories you can own. Turn a monochrome outfit into a fashion statement with a bold scarf. Use it as an evening drape or don it to show off your grandmother's brooch.
A matching hat, scarf and gloves make a fantastic ensemble for fall and winter. Eye-catching combinations like red on black, white on black, black on white and red on white stand out and make your outer wear as fun and attractive as your other outfits.
There are many plaid scarves to choose from, including Club Room, John Ashford, Echo, Charter Club and others. Some coats come with a matching or coordinating scarf. If not, consider purchasing one in a set with a matching hat or earmuffs.
Don't put it away come spring. Keep it out to wear with your solid black outfits, white outfits and other solid, neutral colors that need a splash of brightness to be complete. Your solid yellow, white or gray sundress will certainly stand out with a bright red, green or blue scarf draped over your shoulders or tied around your waist as a belt.
When you need to remove your scarf, simply tie it around the strap of your handbag. It makes an attractive accessory there, too. The scarf has remained in style for many decades and shows no signs of slowing any time soon.
