AC­CES­SORIES

India Today - - CONTENTS -

Scarves are some of the most ver­sa­tile ac­ces­sories you can have in your wardrobe. Whether you’re go­ing for a tra­di­tional look or a con­tem­po­rary one, you can eas­ily add a scarf to add a lit­tle ‘oomph’ to your en­sem­ble.

I feel a scarf adds in­di­vid­u­al­ity to any out­fit. It en­ables you to cre­ate your own unique style and lets the ob­server in on what’s your style. While we’ve had a num­ber of favourites as we set about de­sign­ing col­lec­tions over the years, the styles fea­tured here are among some of the clas­sics I love the most. Learn how to style it right and make a state­ment us­ing this pop­u­lar ac­ces­sory.

The Neck­er­chief

Ty­ing our silk square scarf se­curely around the neck. The per­fect ac­ces­sory with an open neck shirt.

The Euro­pean Loop

Cre­at­ing a loop and tak­ing one end of the scarf through it. Ideal for a work or leisure look. Works with any scarf in any fab­ric but I do feel the more vo­lu­mi­nous the scarf the bet­ter the look.

The In­dian Wrap

Our typ­i­cal In­dian wrap style goes over the torso. The best way to show off a gor­geous print or weave.

The West­ern

If you’ve ever seen a Hol­ly­wood West­ern movie you must have no­ticed the tri­an­gle tie on the neck, a stylish al­ter­na­tive to the usual scarf tie.

The Tie

Tak­ing your skinny silk scarf and ty­ing a sin­gle knot at mid­dle front of your neck and let­ting it sash through the cen­tre line of your body.

KNOTS AND CROSSES A mix of clas­sic and new knots can change how your out­fit looks
