5 ways to wear a scarf

Think a scarf is a bad investment? Think again. It can transform the dullest clothes into a statement outfit.  This Lulu Guiness iconic lip print scarf is my new go-to favourite for the Winter season because it works with so many different outfits and compliments so many fabrics from stripes and florals, to leopard and block colours such as pink and red.  Clashing patterns and vibrant colours are THE way to wear fashion right now.  Wear the scarf in a double sided twist, necklace style, leave it long, in a classic loop or as a shawl.  Pair with your biker jacket, long coatigan, winter coat or evening wear.  Here are my 5 ways to wear a scarf....
