Tying your scarf at the front is so 2016. Autumn/Winter 2017 is all about having a party on the back!

As the total babe in the photo above shows, this scarf trend works wonderfully with off-shoulder silhouettes.

A neutral or khaki-hued scarf is fantastic for any Autumnal palette.

How To Style A Scarf For Your Body Shape

Do you know how to style a scarf for your body shape?

Is that even a thing?

Yep: it actually is!

Nope, I’m not crazy!

Whether you are a perfect pair or beautiful and boyish, when you know how to style a scarf for your body shape, this accessory will be your new BFF.

Today we teach you how to style a scarf for your body type.

What’s My Body Shape?

So you’re probably thinking: ‘what exactly is my body shape?’ Although women come in a stunning array of shapes and sizes, your body type all comes down to your proportions.

Scientists and stylists alike have pin-pointed four main female shapes with certain body proportions. These body shapes are apple, pear, hourglass and rectangle.

Am I A Pear Body Shape?

You ladies are all about that bass! The pear body shape is characterized by a larger bottom half and smaller top half. Pear shaped beauties often have larger hips and thighs, a slim waist, a smaller bust and small shoulders.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I a smaller size in tops than I am in skirts and trousers?
  • Do I tend to carry my weight around my butt and thighs?
  • Do I have a slim waist?
  • Do I have a large hips to waist ratio?

If the answer to most of these questions is yes, you are a pear shape.

Am I An Apple Body Shape?

Va-Va-Voom! Kate Upton rocks her apple shape.

Much unlike the bootylicious pear shape, the apple shape honey has tatas for days! The apple body shape is typically larger on the waist and bust with slimmer hips and legs.

You know the drill…..

  • Am I a larger size in tops than I am in skirts and trousers?
  • Do I tend to carry my weight around my middle.
  • Is my tummy larger than my hips?

Yes? You are an amiable apple.

Am I An Hour Glass Body Shape?

Marilyn Monroe: eat your heart out! The hot hourglass shape has a large bust and hips and a slim waist.

Ask yourself:

  • Do I wear the same size in tops, bottoms and dresses?
  • Is my waist my slimmest part?

If so, you have an hour glass figure: lucky girl.

Am I An Rectangle Body Shape?

A rectangle body shape is defined by equal proportions on the bust, waist, hips and legs. This ‘straight up and down figure’ is often sported by models and athletes.

Ask yourself:

  • Is my body straight?
  • Are my waist, hips and bust the same size?
  • Do I gain weight equally around my body?

Bingo! You are a rectangle shape.

How To Style A Scarf For Your Body Shape

When it comes to learning to style a scarf for your body shape, your aim is to balance out your proportions to look more like the hour glass shape.

Scarves are a fantastic accessory to add volume on specific body parts. Alternatively, slim scarves can be used to cinch the waist in or draw attention to certain areas.

Read on to learn how to style a scarf for your body shape…
