How to Wear a Scarf: 5 Different Ways to Tie a Scarf Stylishly


With every new season, I encourage my Style Coaching Clients to assess their wardrobes and clean out what no longer serves them, especially dated items. This helps eliminate closet clutter and allows them to see what items they really own. As we gear up for fall, the one item that I adore that helps bring an outfit together and provides a pop of color or print is the understated scarf.
