5 Ways to Wear the Oblong Scarf

Have you ever wondered why Parisian women always look so darn chic and effortlessly cool? Although it has a lot to do with attitude, we suspect it also has plenty to do with their masterful scarf-wearing skills!

This spring, a printed scarf is a great way to incorporate a splash of vibrant color into your wardrobe as you transition out of winter and into sunnier days ahead.  Choose a scarf done in a lightweight fabric like silk, cotton, linen or viscose to complement with your warm-weather favorites like dresses, cropped sweaters and tees.

A long scarf, otherwise known as an “oblong” scarf, is probably the most versatile scarf style out there. Below are five great ways to wear the oblong scarf this spring!

The Easy Shawl

1) Put an unfolded oblong scarf around your shoulders and pull the ends in a half knot, tight and high up your back. Tie the ends securely.

2) Pull the scarf fabric down your back to cover the ends.

The Neck Wrap

1) Place scarf behind your neck so the ends are equal length.

2) Wrap closely around the neck so it creates a turtleneck-like cover. 

3) Tie the ends in a half knot.

4) Tuck the ends neatly under the scarf loops so they aren’t showing.

Great Gifts for Mom, Dad & Grad

The next couple of months are primed to be quite eventful with Mother’s Day, graduations and Father’s Day on our calendars! With so many important people to celebrate in the next few weeks, we wanted to take a moment to round up a few great gift ideas for all those wonderful moms, dads & grads out there. 

For Mother’s Day, why not treat mom to a nice Sunday brunch and surprise her with a chic women’s watch, a gorgeous Coach handbag to replace her old one or a pretty printed scarf for spring? Just seeing her smile as she opens up a gift she loves will be worth a thousand words!

When it’s dad’s turn to enjoy a day dedicated to his all-around awesomeness, surprise him with a practical yet equally awesome gift. A pair of fun cuff links that declares his love of golf perhaps? How about a classic sports watch or a new Fossil wallet to replace that old tattered one he keeps in his pocket? For the dad who’s into dressing up for the office or just to look his dapper best, a new Calvin Klein tie should do the trick.

Now on to the celebrated grads! Congratulate their many achievements with a gift that they can take with them as they venture into college, grad school or the “real world”. A snazzy new briefcase or a nice laptop case (for their new laptop, maybe?) are both great grad gift options. Commemorate her hard work with a pretty Dogeared necklace that represents her transformation into a successful and confident woman. Of course a versatile watch is always a good option to keep the new grad in time for class, interviews, flights...anywhere their next chapter takes them!
