Reader Sarah sent me this question:
I love making and wearing necklaces. Between my own creations and the necklaces I have purchased, I have a large collection of necklaces, and wear a necklace most days. As a result, I have been slow to take up the scarf craze. Lately, I have seen women combining a necklace with a scarf. Can you offer tips on how to do this?
This is a tough one, but I’ll do my best!

Scarves are intimidating. Much like belts, they belong to a family of accessory that most women admire on others but fear themselves. Many are given scarves as gifts, inherit them from family members, thrift or purchase them on whims, and end up with a confusing collection of pretty, diaphanous thingies and no idea how to wear or style them.

Experimentation with ties and configurations helps us suss out which scarves are ideal for our personal styles and unique figures – silk squares, knit infinities, long narrows, thick cowls. If you are struggling to understand how to wear the scarves in your collection, honing in on YOUR ideal scarf style is a great place to start. Here’s how:
