Many ladies ask, “Should wear a scarf with a necklace?”
The question shouldn’t be “should I”, but “how should I?”
For years, it’s been faux pas to pair a scarf with a necklace, but now, it’s a hot trend! So how do you create a cohesive, chic look? Well, there are a few ways:
You can blouse the scarf with a choker so the necklace shows above the draped scarf.
Another method is wearing a layered necklace above the scarf in a V. Unfortunately, you can’t see everything that’s going on in this pic. The scarf is draped over one shoulder so it frames the extra long necklace. I couldn’t get my camera to capture it without it being fuzzy. 😦
But my pink Italian scarf & pearls still look so chic!
Next, I tried looping a scarf around my neck once and allowing it to hang and frame different necklaces. Notice that the loop can be close to the neck or further away. I put it further away for the bobble/bauble necklace & closer for the multi-strand pearls.
I also tried laying the pearls on top of a draped scarf. This way the scarf is a backdrop for the necklace. Try to match the weight of the scarf to the weight of the piece. Meaning, if you have a classy scarf, put it with a classy set. A whimsical scarf should be paired with a fun set. Don’t mix messages when putting jewelry together. But there are some pieces that’ll work either way.
Works well for covering the cleavage!
Finally, I put the necklaces on top of the scarf.
I hope I inspired you to try some different looks using some of the items you already have (or some you plan to own) & I hope you enjoyed my mini photo shoot. I know I did! Play around with these styles in different colors, fabric types & lengths of necklaces & scarves. Pair them with your favorite ensembles to see which ways flatter you most. And when you find it,
