San Francisco may have turned a corner. It hasn’t been as cold lately – some days you can ALMOST leave a jacket at home. It’s a typical California winter: crisp mornings morph into bright warm(ish) afternoons once the sun breaks through. But soon as dusk hits, the chill comes rushing right back in so it’s wise to be properly prepared. Perhaps Katy Perry said it best: “it’s hot and it’s cold,” aka the perfect scarf weather!

Scarves are THE perfect transitional accessory. A big blanket scarf is a godsend. It shields you from the chill on days when you leave your coat at home. On the other hand, a light weight scarf is so right for a day when you can’t quite figure out if that sun outside is actually warm. With scarves, you don’t have to worry about messing with sleeves or disrobing super clunky layers once the day warms up- scarves are just THAT easy to take off. But putting them on and having them look effortlessly fabulous? That can be a totally different story, right?!

Getting the perfectly styled scarf ‘round your neck is admittedly not as easy as it looks. Ever wonder how fashionistas get their scarves styled to perfection? We’ve got six uber-stylish ways right here!

One Shoulder Shawl: This style is perfect a sophisticated night out. Instead of going typical “shawl”, just wrap the scarf around one shoulder for an edgy asymmetrical look.

  1. I love the whole blanket scarf thing. It’s so funny – we all do that at home! I like it because it makes me feel like the queen of my castle

  3. I love the loose wrap around look! Thats the one I always go for in winter, and it’s so cozy. Really enjoyed this post 🙂

  4. Am I seeing it correctly, or is the “blanket scarf chic” lady wearing a boot on her left foot and a sandal on the right? And her purse is hanging open…??? What’s going on there?

    1. Suzie,
      I think she has a slit in her pants & the one leg is covered by the pant leg & the other isn’t. Most likely, she is wearing two sandals. But, yes, her purse is wide open! Too funny.
