TREND: All Wrapped Up

Wearing a scarf around your neck when it’s warm and sunny out? No thank you. Wearing a headscarf under those heated rays? Absolutely! This Fashionista strategically and stylishly wraps this pink, fuchsia scarf around her head that pulls her hair back and out of her face. On a hot day your hair ends up in a messy knot on the top of your head anyway (you know it’s true) so why not pull it back to begin with and add a bold scarf? I dare you.

Okay, so the head wrap will add some extra heat to your body, which completely contradicts the initial purpose of it that I presented earlier, but when you’re looking fabulous who cares about my illogical theories, right? Just be sure to bring a bottle of water with you to cool down and keep hydrated. (That’s definitely a piece of advice that’s glitch-free.)

This Fashionista’s headscarf adds a bright pop to an otherwise color-less outfit. Wearing dark gray leopard-print leggings, a white tee, a leather vest and black sneakers she looks casual and put together. Her shirt floats off her hips and her vest buttons together at the smallest part of her waist; this combination works to create the most flattering silhouette. Any Fashionista who has learned how to dress her body is definitely CollegeFashionista worthy. 

Hint: For a funky and chic but understated outfit, wear a colorful or patterned headscarf with good denim trousers and a white tee-shirt. For a resort-inspired look wear one with a summery frock and, of course, a pair of oversized shades. If you are skilled, a pashmina type scarf will work. If you’re an inexperienced head wrap wearer (it’s okay, most of us are) then a smaller silk scarf will be easier to work with. I can’t say whether or not manipulating a scarf into a head accessory takes more or less time than actually styling your hair, but I will say that practice makes perfect! Or, get yourself a hassle-free, pre-constructed  that you simply tie like a shoe.

TREND: All Wrapped Up

In the rarest moment that Los Angeles manages to get below 70 degrees Fashionistas get to bundle up. Instead of Eskimo gear The Chic manage to find warmth in sleek layering pieces. This Fashionista donned a textured black scarf and a neutral toned coat over her ballerina fit one- piece and pattern skirt. While looking sophisticated and modernly feminine she still has an outfit of purpose. I thought her look was striking, in such a delicate frame she was able to exude a natural charm by playing with shapes. When it’s cold outside it doesn’t mean you have to loose your silhouette, find some pieces that create volume and still keep you warm.

Style On,

Marko
