Last week we talked about the power of The Shoe to elevate an outfit. Today I’ve been pondering The Scarf.
I have to preface this with a confession: I am a hapless scarf-arranger. I have studied the very helpful videos that abound on the ‘nets. I’ve practiced in front of the mirror. But I still cannot finish looking as chic as Une Femme or Pam, or so many other stylish bloggers who’ve mastered the art.
That said, I am re-introducing the scarf into my wardrobe with enthusiasm. I have sorted through my scarf drawer and eliminated the drab: mousy prints, tired chiffon squares. I’ve identified the “fab” scarves and moved them to the front.

Do you use scarves to brighten your wardrobe? Are you a scarf novice or a ninja?
