A Decade in Scarf Styles: 1970s

If the 1970s had to be summed up in one accessory, it would undoubtedly be a scarf. From the paisley-print pretties of the peace-out era, to the sparkling turbans of the Studio 54 scene, the 1970s were ruled by scarves!

Whether you’re looking to add a little 1970s flair to your style, or you’re addicted to everything retro, here’s the 1970s decade in scarf styles summed up.

The Hairband

70s big screen queen Goldie Hawn sure knows how to rock a hair scarf. Rather than wearing as a tight turban or wrap around, the boho beauty wore her scarf lose, allowing it to tumble down among her golden curls.

The Head Scarf

Those looking for a more statement look wrapped a printed scarf around their entire head.

The bold prints were often accompanied by statement earrings, smoky eye makeup and brightly colored lips.

Farrah Fawcett was the pioneer of the 70s ‘All American preppy girl’. That flicked out blonde do’, those high waist jeans and impeccable tailored suiting make her one of the most iconic fashion figures of the late 1970s.

So how exactly do you wear your scarf like the original Charlies Angel? Take a life out of Farrah’s stylish book and wear your silk scarf wrapped around short and tied in a neat knot at one side.

Stevie Nicks’ style is almost as iconic as her Fleetwood Mac hits! She is commonly referred to as ‘the queen of rock’, but we honestly think she is the original queen of boho.

Stevie often wore belts as scarves, which complimented her flowy and feminine pieces.

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas: Chic & Comfy Styles To Steal

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and although many of us ladies my be thinking about stuffing ourselves with as much turkey as possible **solemnly raises hand**, Thanksgiving raises a little problem. What on earth do I wear? Ahh… the thanksgiving outfit.. the answer to a possible moral dilemma of eating enough to food to make you look like the octomum.

Let’s be real here: you are not exactly going to be strutting your stuff down the streets of Beverly Hills with Lauren Conrad and co. Your fashion police will be your Mum, your Dad and perhaps old Aunt Maggie. But hey: Aunt Maggie deserves to be dressed up for too right?

Make that family home your runway girl! We show you 10 chic thanksgiving outfit ideas that will totally hide that extra slice of pie you indulged in!

Scarf & Swing Dress

Dresses make us feel like Princesses, but a bodycon number as tight as Kimmy K’s will not be particularly comfortable once you have indulged in three courses of home cooked goodness. Instead, opt for a cute swing dress and top it off with a printed scarf. We personally think that this one’s a little too outdoorsy for a homey holiday. Instead, keep it leafy and pop on the floral pure wool scarf.

The Poncho

Ah… we love a good poncho! As well as being super on-trend, these magical garments will hide that food baby so everyone will be none the wiser. As Thanksgiving is made for pigging out **om nom nom**, go for a longer length poncho and wear with slim fit jeans and boots. As tempted as you may be to team this baby with some baggy pants for some..ahem… extra storage space, doing so may make you look like a walking balloon.

We love the contrast between this rich mustard color and the leopard print bag. If there’s nothing at all big-cat like in your handbag collection, try tying our mixed print scarf around your fave bag instead!

Neutral & Knitted

This neutral combo is so freaking cute! The pleats make it a feminine and pretty look that Nan will smile at, whilst the cardigan adds a element of quintessentially Fall snugness. Layer on tights underneath to beat the chill. Finally, add casual burnished gold accessories for the subtle little cherry on top of this gorgeous outfit.

The Autumnal Print Clash

Although horizontal stripes are typically known for making us look wider, these slim stripes are perfectly clashed with the leopard print scarf. This draws the eye away from the waistline. However, if you are seriously worried about looking like a bloated Betty, vertical stripes are the way to go!

The solid black bottom half of this look is super leg lengthening and our old pal black is always there for us when we’ve eaten too much! Finally, the mustard jacket places it smack bang in Fall territory.

This look is all about that gorgeous print clash, so team your striped shirt with our pure wool animal print scarf.

The Denim Shirt Dress

If you’re going to be snug next to a warm fire, there’s no need to sweat it out in layers upon layers of knitwear! Go for simple and timeless in a shirt dress. If you are worried about been a little nippy, opt for a chambray or denim shirt dress. These both have slightly thicker fabric.

Pop on a printed scarf to embellish the look to perfection! We think that the multicolor abstract print scarf is a literal explosion of Autumn hues.

Orange

The Boho Florals

(Photo Source: shopstyle.com)

As total boho obsessives, we believe that bold florals and baggy shapes are perfect for year-round wear! An oversized boho print dress, such as this beauty above, is pretty and appropriate for a family get together. Plus: the shape ensures that you can totally go for that third helping of dessert!

We suggest that you leave the hat and sunnies out of this one! No matter how Fall-appropriate your hat is, it is certainly not appropriate for the dinner table!

If you want to inject some boho florals into your Thanksgiving outfit without going head to toe, try our floral paisley silk scarf.

Black

The Waterfall Vest

When it comes to bloating, a sleeveless waterfall vest is an instant saving grace! Flowing out at all of the right places, a waterfall vest will skim over any lumps and bumps, leaving your Thanksgiving pig-out not completely on show.

Team this stunning piece with an on-trend pair of slim fit jeans and a plain white tee. If you want to dress it up more, gold jewellery is a great way to do so.
