How to wear scarves according to instagram - Part 1
Scarves are quintessential accessories that have been favoured by some of the most remarkable women through history. These simple fashion accessories can magically add a touch of elegance to the simplest outfits.
But we often forget how versatile they are. I sometimes wonder how many precious silk or cashmere scarves around the world are kept carefully in boxes covered by thick layers of dust.
If you think “I am not the silk scarf type “or “the cabin crew look is not for me” and you own several scarves given to you as gifts but you don’t know what to do with them, then stay with me!
I love colourful printed scarves and have been collecting them long before I launch my line on Narosib, but I often find myself wearing them the usual way, around my neck. So, I turned to some of my favourite accounts on Instagram who rock the scarf style to get inspired and try alternative methods of incorporating scarves into my outfit.
Here you find the first part of an Instagram inspired guide to wear scarves in all seasons and climates.
Turn your scarf into head accessory
Scarves as head accessories are a big trend seen everywhere on Instagram for practical reasons. A great way to add a dash of colour to your ponytail or stop the itchy bites of hair touching your face when you want to get on with your work.
