7 Street Style Scarf Looks To Steal NOW

Is it just me, or do street style stars always have a certain je ne sais quois to their looks? Whether it be a fine, layered necklace or a tassel hanging from the strap of their new season Celine, it’s all about those details.

With Winter creeping up on us, we don’t want to fall flat in the style stakes by leaving it to a coat and boots. The best way to add some layered details? A statement scarf!

Want a seasonal-appropriate street style look? Check out these seven scarf looks that are certainly worth lusting after…

The Basic Boho

Whether you are sweating it out in the Southern Hemisphere, or snuggling up in a million blankets up North; this multi-seasonal look is super easy to pull off!

Although this look is undoubtedly chic, it’s simply a combination of wardrobe basics that most of us fashionistas will already have hanging in the ‘drobe.

If you’re headed into Summer, team your ripped-denim jeans with a crisp, white crop top and embellish with a ditsy crystal pendant. Add a over-sized knit shawl to beat that evening chill.

Northern Hemisphere-er’s: Don’t fret! Simply swap the crop vest for a crop chunky knit and layer over a flesh colored vest (thermal, if you’d like to really keep the chill at bay). Then add your knit shawl and you are ready to be papped!

No matter what season you are currently in, finish off your look with a neutral-toned floral scarf, such as the Abstract Floral Wool Scarf. Drape loosely over the neck to compliment your crystal pendant.

The Texture Tease

Oh-so-girly, yet so chunky and snugly: this look is all about juxtaposing fits and textures. One thing’s for sure: it looks absolutely effortless!

Invest in an over-sized, chunky knit sweater. A dark grey marl tone is a versatile option when it comes to styling choices. Layer your knit over the girliest dress you can possibly find in your wardrobe for an oxymoronic peek-a-boo effect.

Bring in a third textured element with a paisley print scarf with metallic details. We think that the Solid Colour Scarf would make a wonderful addition to this outfit.

Team with thick, black tights and classic leather cowboy boots. Yee-ha!

The New Nautical

Back in 2005, when the nautical trend was at its peak, we could simply throw on a Breton stripe tee and be done with it. Fast forward ten years and this trend is a whole lot more complex!

A tailored, striped, jacket and pants combo will see you from the office to the bar. Go for a three toned look to stop it looking too much like a sailor costume. Throw the jacket over a white printed tee to give it a casual edge.

Inject a little ooh-la-la by tying a printed silk-scarf, such as the exotic silk scarf, as you would a neckerchief. After all, anything that looks even slightly Parisian is undoubtedly chic!

Leave hair mussed up and natural and opt for dark sunnies in a quirky, round shape.

Add a polished satchel and juxtaposing sporty sneakers for that ‘I just threw this on’ vibe.

The Understated

Yes! Another look that we can create from the basic beauties we already have! Grab a pair of jeans and a pinstripe shirt and you’re ready to roll!

Tuck your pinstripe shirt into your jeans and embellish with a black, leather belt. Roll your sleeves up and pop your collar. You’re not a rapper, but hey: it looks good!

Keep accessories sleek and minimal by finely tying a printed silk scarf around your neck, securing under your hair and letting the majority of the fabric cascade down your back. The Artistic Print silk scarf really suits the timeless vibe of this look.

Add a plain gold necklace and your trusty black bag for the finishing touches.

The Color-Pop

If you were a fan of the hit show ‘Gossip Girl’, you will probably recognize this chic scarf get-up. Yes: that is Mrs Ryan Reynolds playing Serena Van Der Woodsen circa 2009. If this look’s good enough for her, sign us up!

This look is all about your statement scarf, so choose a color that will really pop from the rest of your attire. The Multicolor Abstract Print Scarf provides an aurora of color to brighten up those cloudy fall days.

Keep the rest of your look black, clean and classic. A black, button up coats, tights and leather gloves will work wonders. xoxo Gossip Girl.

The Oh-So-Polished

Have you ever seen a plain grey sweater look so polished? Dress up a super-casual cotton sweater by tying a silk scarf twice around the neck and securing like a bandanna. The Floral Paisley Silk Scarf will give your sweater an instant injection of class.

Invest in a statement ear-cuff and tuck your perfectly-polished hair nonchalantly behind your ear. This look should scream ‘effortless glamour’, even if it did take you two hours to style your hair…

Over-sized round sunglasses and neutral makeup add to the glamazon vibe.

The Belted Tuck

This look featured heavily in Burberry’s A/W 2015 collection and saw a clever clashing of muted and pastel patterns.

To be a Burberry girl, combine a printed wrap dress in a muted palette with a printed scarf in muted tones. The Multicolor Print Scarf in blue violet is a Burberry-look-a-like for ladies on a budget!

Throw a skinny, brown waist belt over your scarf and voila: a brand new dress! Add some nude shoes and sunglasses and you’re fashion week ready! Feeling the chill? Swap the sunglasses  for thick tights or close-fitting, leather pants.

Which scarf look will you be stealing?
