Reader Rhianna sent this request via e-mail.

I was wondering if you could maybe do a post on scarves for larger-chested girls like myself. I love scarves, but I have large breasts and they never seem to lay right. Do you have any advice?

I am not in possession of a large bust myself, but I’ve worked with style clients who are busty and struggle to make scarves work. So I’ll offer a few tips, and ask you all to chime in with more! READ MORE

Reader Request: Wearing Scarves and Necklaces Together

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?

Most experienced scarf wearers have identified a style, shape, size, and weight of scarf that they prefer. 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: READ MORE
