How Should I Wear The Neck Scarf Trend? Should I Even Try It Out?

Yesssss, definitely give this trend a shot, especially if you don't mind fabric close to your neckline (the turtleneck-averse should walk the other way). It's a great option for almost every body shape...

Season: Fall
Body Type: Hourglass

Style Advice:

  • Take your typical black-on-black look, tie a simple printed scarf in neutrals loosely around your neck, done. 
  • This isn't the only outfit option of course. Check out the 4 images below for more inspiration/ways to wear the trend.
  • You could always wear a scarf with a t-shirt and bring it into Spring/Summer. Easy.
  • This loose knot works well back to a crew and v-neck top.

Dear Hourglass Seeking A New Way to Wear Jogger Pants for Spring

Got it.

Try a loose black jogger pant with a slightly more fitted top (a halter neckline will show off those shoulders) and slip on flat sandals. This way you're not hiding curves under too much fabric because that, would be tragic (understatement). 

Keep it black-on-black or mix in a white/gray tank to lighten things up a bit.

p.s. Switch the sandal for a higher heel and clutch if you want to wear this into Happy Hour.

Dear Rectangle Seeking an Off-the-Shoulder Outfit Option

A. Way to step up to the best trend of the season (says moi). 

B. Try a high-waisted boyfriend jean cuffed at the hem, cinched at the waist, and a lace-up pump. Or, try a flare leg jean, sans, belt at the waist, to balance out proportions (with a heel).  

p.s. If you're short-waisted, avoid the boyfriend jean cinched at the waist like a Soul Cycle class on Saturday morning after a late (laaaaate) Friday night. It is the exact opposite of what you want. Instead, tuck one end of the off-the-shoulder top into a mid-rise flare leg jean. Simple, yet effective.

Dear Seeking A Green Croc-Embossed Clutch to Wear to Dinner

Well played on your exotic accessory selection. 

I found a couple of on-point shopping options for you below. Love this deep emerald hue back to black-and-white. It also plays well with jewel tones like purple and amber.

p.s. You can easily wear this type of clutch for a coffee date too back to a casual jean (skinny or flare leg) and basic tee.

Dear Pear Seeking A Quick & Easy Weekend Outfit Idea That Involves Kicks, 

So you're looking for a sneaker-based outfit that looks more polished and less 'gym time' huh? Here you go...

Try a chunky knit turtleneck sweater to balance out your proportions back to a skinny leg jean on the bottom half. Pair it all back to your sneakers (keep the sweater neutral if you have colorful kicks) and a small shoulder bag that can hold everything you need without getting too big and bulky. 

The layered bracelets and rings are easy additions that make you look like you know what you're doing in that closet of yours. Stylist what? Stylist who? Have fun with it!
