What girl doesn't love Scarves? For many women, its even the only piece of silk they own. In recent years the trend with scarves has transitioned from belt, to handbag strap accessory, to draping across your chest, but I would like to make a case for wearing a scarf, as a scarf. I think that women look very chic wearing a scarf as a scarf- and most of us definitely thought that Jackie Kennedy, Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn look chic and even more attractive wearing them with oversized sunglasses, but it seems that this look is nearly non-existant in the present day. So in an effort to inspired someone out there to wear a scarf as a scarf, here are some of my favorite photos of ladies in scarves.

You'll notice that with their scarves, these ladies are wearing more pronounced makeup: stronger eye makeup and colorful lips to help play up the glamorous and fashion-forward side of the scarf. Jewelry is important as well, you'll notice lots of earrings, bracelets, and of course.. oversized sunglasses.
Hopefully these tips and this collection of photos will inspire a few out there to try the scarf, as a scarf. Have a lovely day everyone!
