How to select the right scarf

Most women that love scarves use the conventional method by putting it around their neck and distributing equal length on the left or right side for drape. By altering the length of the scarf on either side, you can get mesmerizing knot patterns and wrap patterns for a drape. Select a scarf that complements your skin tone, eyes and hair. The scale of the scarf should be selected in accordance with

the nape of the neck. Loud colors tend to highlight dark circles; hence it is safe to wear a monotone if you have dark circles or puffy eyes. A scarf should ideally complement your body frame. Versatile colors for scarves are black, purple, brown and cream/off white. Colors popular with teens and young women are mustard yellow, lime green, blue, pink, olive green, lemon yellow, turquoise, white, silver and gold. Textures, patterns and prints such as batik, lace, plaid, ruffle, stripes, polka dots, crochet, and ethnic ikat are a rage with young women and old women.

Scarves for thin boned/petite women

Many thin-boned women, petite women and anorexic women look disproportionate when they wear chunky scarves. Petite women or petite women should choose medium sized scarves. Thin knit textures look stunning on necks of thin boned women. Thickness and scale of a scarf is of essential importance and should be selected to aesthetically complement your body frame.

Scarves for curvy women

Women with curvy bodies can wear large or thick scarves. If you are short make sure the length of the scarf when draped is long, this accentuates your frame and makes you look taller. Ruffle scarves look exceedingly beautiful on women with curvy figures.

Scarves for women with well endowed bodies

Women with a large bust or women that have well endowed bodies often complain about their bust being highlighted when they wear scarves. You do not have to refrain from scarves if you are overweight or have a large bust. All you need to do is pick the right scarf and drape it in a way that it downplays your chest. For this the best way is to choose a scarf with a dark color base and let it hang with cluster knots. This not only downplays your chest, it also makes you look taller and slimmer than you actually are.
