A fresh way to wear a silk scarf: Tie it around your neck, and still add many strands of necklaces. Mix it up and wear it with your plaid shirt. Dig through your mom and grandmothers closet for some vintage silk scarves.
A look we never get tired of seeing or wearing, is to belt the outside of your blazer or knits.
Wear the long wool coat and pointy heels to dress up a pair of ripped denim.
A printed pencil skirt is timeless and will work with everything in your closet. Wear it now with a simple black tee and statement shoes.
