Curvy: You need to focus on showing your waist. Find pieces of clothes that fall smoothly over your curves and avoid anything oversized and anything that ends loosely at the hips.

25 Ways to Wear a Scarf

This weekend I realized I was running low on scarves. I usually don’t use them much because where I used to live (Mexico) the weather was mostly hot and whenever it got chilly outside a jacket would cover it all up! However, Boston is a different story. In order to feel good, you have to have a good body temperature too. This is why it is crucial to be covered up in the winter. If you are not, you will LITERALLY suffer through the day. So, back to my point, this weekend I got so cold during the nights. A coat/jacket was not enough so I decided to wear a scarf. Turns out that when I was choosing what scarf to wear, though the options were nearly 2 to 3, I realized I had almost none and I needed to get more for the winter.

Shopping online is something I literally love, and while looking for scarves online, I had a better idea. I wanted to know if with just using one scarf during the whole winter season I could make it look different every time I wore it. I found this video o YouTube which is very cool and really interesting to watch. This video answered all of my questions. Turns out, my idea was logical and it is in fact a great way to save money while applying different looks with your scarf each time you use it.

 Hope you enjoyed the video and remember, this doesn’t apply only to scarves. There are tons of clothes and outfits you can wear and repeat a lot and by just changing a tiny bit of how you wore the previous time, it will look different and you will look fabulous! Try practicing all of the different techniques with your favorite scarf and decide which one you like the most. Many of them look simple yet they are so hard to do! I still wonder how is it even possible to wear a scarf in 25 different ways! It is kind of crazy!
