The Apple Shape Wardrobe: How to Wear a Scarf This Holiday Season

Here’s an idea for how to wear a scarf this holiday season: pair black and white polka dots with bright red.

How to wear a scarf this holiday season

One of the things that many people are searching for these days is how to wear a scarf. Scarves can be tricky, especially if, like me, you have a short neck. For this reason, sometimes a scarf can feel too bulky gathered at the neck area. My solution is choosing an oversized scarf like the one I’m wearing but in a very thin fabric. With it being oversized, I’m able to wrap it around the neck but keep the front part loose. I love to achieve a V-shape with the ends of my scarf for a more flattering effect.

Try this combo with a polka dot scarf

I’ve noticed that one of the most flattering ways to wear a neutral black and white polka dot scarf like the one I’m wearing is to pair it with a pop of color. Bright red is perfect for the holiday season. In the fall I wear it with a darker red like in this post. Since there’s so much going on with the polka dots and bright red, I decided to keep everything else toned down with all black.

A fit and flare red dress you can wear alone paired with a statement necklace, with a black fur shawl, or in this outfit.

Basically, it’ll take you to every holiday party you need to go to all season long, because nobody forgets the woman in the red dress.

All my knee high boots are from Naturalizer because you can walk in them for eight hours straight and feel comfortable.

Black tights if you’re in the market, better than the ones I’m wearing because they are more opaque and super matte.

And lastly, if you don’t already have a black fitted moto jacket, these are great options:
