Fashion |Three reasons you should belt your scarf

_DSC0425

With a new trend I often find myself debating do I hop on the bandwagon? Or, do I say thats lovely, but no thank you? Both options are good ones but the belted scarf felt like a recycled trend that I couldn’t pass up this round.

For colour/pattern

I regret the populization of the capsule wardrobe for one reason, everyone wants to live in monochrome and by extension the high street is completely void of colour. Over dramatization? No, I just seriously miss the option of colour!

For shape I love a baggy T or dress no matter how unflattering they are but sometimes you want something flattering without a big neon sign saying, hey, I’m chunky. Belt a scarf in front and you have both killer shape and coverage.

To be ‘different’

If this becomes a trend, I’m sorry this probably won’t be so different after all but I love any excuse to switch up my wardrobe so at the moment this is a full on go!

And if you want to stand out a little more may I suggest a faux fur Gilet? This particular one is from Long Tall Sally and it is quite frankly the most cozy and cute gilet I have ever and will ever own.

I may have told you this before. But I work in a casual smart office. Its a place where jeans are welcome. Huzzah! But sometimes a girl needs a little dressing up and date night is the perfect excuse. I feel very mad men in this outfit. The dress is from our anniversary last year, but its a bit of a clinger so I have to be honest it doesn’t get much wear nowadays however mixed with some vintage and a pencil skirt you just can’t go wrong!
