Apparently we women are also guilty of not wearing the clothes we do have, with the average item of clothing being worn just 2-3 times a year, despite it being estimated that women buy 64 new items of clothing each year.
Whilst I'd like to know who these lucky women are, I have to confess I am rather welded into my black leggings when running after the kids.
It's really hard to keep up with the latest fashion trends as they change so quickly. And who has the money to buy a whole new wardrobe each time you want to update your look? No. The canny fashionista would advise that you can simply update your existing clothing with accessories.
Items like a scarf can be extremely versatile in how you wear them and I've found a lovely little book that challenges us to wear a scarf in 50 different ways - yes 50!
The 50 Ways to Wear a Scarf book by Lauren Friedman from Qwerkity.com (£9.99) shows how to wrap, loop, or tie a scarf to instantly dress up or dress down any outfit, helping you to discover the delights of styles such as the Bandit, Minnie Mouse, Ascot, New York, Boy Scout, babushka and 44 other fascinating styles.
The book shows you how to create these styles in easy steps, complete with illustrations, helping you to get the right look using oblong and square scarves.
OK, so I probably still need to practise but at least now I have 2 styles in my repertoire!
|My version of No. 1 - The Bandit|
Because the instructions are well illustrated and simple, the reader is given the confidence to try out styles of scarf you might not previously have considered.
I will definitely be giving some of the other styles a go.
|Delft Blue Bird Scarf - £9.95|
