“RunWays with…” will be one of our more fashion-oriented regular posts, where we pick an item from our favourite runway show, and suggest how you can apply this to your wardrobe.
This month I picked supersize scarves based on the Chanel Fall / Winter 2013-2014 Ready-to-Wear collection. Scarves are quite an easy way to make an outfit stand out. Oversize scarves can be more than this though, they are somewhat of an upgrade to your usual scarf that is sure to make more of a statement, and can quickly turn your everydays into more sophisticated outfits. Needless to say, they will also give you extra cosiness in the winter months, and can be worn in a multitude of ways.
Top Left: My personal favourite and a classic way to wear a scarf; just wrap one side around your neck and shoulders, and let the other side fall freely at the front.
Top Right: Just tie your oversize scarf at the front in a chunky knot and let both fall at the front.
Bottom: If you love scarves but hate all the flimsiness, this is the method for you; just throw both ends behind your shoulders, and you will get a snood-like shape at the front.
Left: A similar front knot like we have seen above, but tied more loosely, just as chic, but more laid back. There’s just something really cool about ultra long scarves flowing at the front (make sure you don’t get tangled in anything though!)
Right: I love this idea of mixing two similarly patterned scarves together. This method can also work with other types of scarves.
A more structured / put-together girly look; tying your scarf into a bow (this also works beautifully but in a different way with smaller silky scarves). Just fix the bow with a pretty brooch or a quirky one.
And here are some snaps from Pinterest that can give you a better idea of what sort of oversize scarves you can wear, and what clothing and accessories go with them.
