Try This Scarf Styling Trick For An Instantly Chic Look

The perfect lightweight accessory for a cool spring day, a scarf offers a simple way of breaking up your outfit and adding a layering element to your look. Lately, however, we’ve noticed a novel way of wearing long scarves: instead of knotting or twisting it, street style savants and celebrities like Clemence Poesy and Nicole Richie are wearing them simply draped around their necks. Styled in this way, scarves give off a breezy, effortless feel and result in an instantly chic ensemble. Ready to try the look on your own? Continue reading for our tips.

1. Try It If: You want to elevate a basic neutral coat.
Layering’s often tricky to master, but this stylephile goes for a visually intriguing look by tossing a cream scarf over her coat.
Try It With: Lauren Ralph Lauren Lightweight Pashmina Scarf ($30) in Cream; Enrico Coveri Fringe Solid Wool And Cashmere Pashmina ($85); White + Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap ($295) in White.

2. Try It If: You need to energize a simple, everyday outfit.
Richie opted for simple, comfortable pieces for a plane ride, like her blazer and jeans combo when she touched down at the Los Angeles airport last month. A leopard-print scarf enlivens her outfit and lends a little extra pizzazz.
Try It With: Becksondergaard F Reflected Leo Print Scarf ($38); Guess by Marciano Yasmin Cheetah Scarf ($68); Saint Laurent Leopard-Print Cashmere And Silk-Blend Scarf ($895).

3. Try It If: Your ensemble could use a pop of color.
This style-savvy dresser breaks up her denim-on-denim ensemble with a punchy mint green scarf, which is also a cool way of referencing spring’s ubiquitous pastel trend.
Try It With: Spun By Subtle Luxury Modal Scarf ($60) in Mint; Faliero Sarti Tobia Scarf ($225); Tsumori Chisato Cashmere Cat Dot Stole ($395).

4. Try It If: You want to add a touch of bohemian appeal to your look.
Thanks to its fringe trim, Poesy’s blanket-like camel scarf injected her cozy sweater and cropped jeans with boho-inspired flair at the Acne F/W 13 show in Paris earlier this month.
Try It With: Nordstrom Tissue Weight Wool And Cashmere Wrap ($88); Enrico Coveri Cashmere Fringe Long Scarf ($148); DKNY Big Cashmere Scarf ($395).
