3 Ways to Style a Scarf with Julia Hardie

3 days, 3 ways with Julia

Name: Julia Hardie
Location: Auburn, Alabama
Occupation: Student

Style Icon: Sarah Jessica Parker circa Sex and The City

Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex in the City is my main source of fashion inspiration. I love how her character wears whatever she wants, no matter what. She really inspired me to find my own personal style and forget the rules. She makes everything fashionable, and her style is so powerful. Not to mention her obsession with shoes definitely fueled my own.

Best Style Advice

Details are important. From your jewelry to your socks, accessories can revamp or elevate an outfit.

Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.

Gianni Versace
The Garment

I picked up this little silk scarf from a thrift store in Auburn a couple years ago for a pirate costume. I forgot about it afterward, until last year when it became very popular to wear silk scarves as tops. Silk scarves have amazing versatility: they can be worn so many different ways, either as a top or an accessory. Since I rediscovered the variety of uses it has, I’ve worn it probably once a month and it’s become one of my favorite pieces.

Look One: Lunch by the Beach

Style a scarf as a top

There are soooo many different ways you can tie a scarf to turn it into a top. I love it for the summer too because the fabric feels cool against your skin in the heat. (You can google it to find a ton of different directions on how to do this.) I paired the top with some chunky gold accessories and white pants. And of course, a big, big hat.

Look Two: Style A Scarf for A Day Drive

style a scarf in your hair

I adore wearing a scarf in my hair. It always reminds me of Audrey Hepburn and ‘50s convertibles. Worn as I did looks best with a V-neck, especially a plunging one. Big sunglasses are a package deal with this look, too. I really love doing hair scarves on days when my hair doesn’t look the best (or I don’t want to wash it).

Look Three: Belt it

I was inspired to do this the other day during one of my class lectures. My professor was talking about men’s fashion post Woodstock and included an ad for pants that showed a man in yellow trousers with a scarf for his belt. I loved the idea and immediately wanted to style a scarf to recreate it. I like going all out on a theme. This one is clearly the ‘70s! This style also works well with dresses, and if your scarf is long enough you could make a big bow.
