I am so excited to co-host the Fabulous Friday Link Up Party with the Fashion Over 40 Fashionista, Jennie from A Pocketful Of Polka Dots. The end of this post will have instruction on how you can share your latest post and check out what others are sharing. It is truly a PARTY!!!
All About Scarves
When you think of parties you think of the holidays, and that brings with it the dreaded question of what am I going to wear? Today’s post is all about scarves and the power they have to change an outfit from boring to FABULOUS.
An easy way to change up an outfit is with a scarf. I don’t have many in my wardrobe, but the ones I have are workhorses. This is a simple pashmina scarf from Amazon for $7 and comes in about 20 colors. What to look for in choosing a scarf? For me, because I am petite, I want a lightweight, oblong/rectangular shaped scarf that I can tie or loop close to my face.
Add Cheetah Or Leopard Print Scarf
A cheetah or leopard print scarf is a MUST have for your wardrobe. Animal print is considered the new neutral and it will go with everything. If you are not comfortable with prints, leopard is a great place to start and a scarf is an inexpensive piece to add to your wardrobe.
Try A Plaid Scarf
Not sure about leopard? Try plaid! This oblong, lightweight scarf is the BP Plaid Scarf From Nordstrom. It is sold out but the BP Line has tons of great oblong shaped scarves.
Go For Bold Color
Here a simple blue cashmere sweater looks complete with a bold but Classic Plaid Scarf in Dark Green from J Crew Outlet. This scarf brings attention to my face and away from my tummy.
This is the same Classic Plaid Scarf in Dark Green from J Crew Outlet but worn with my Chenille Fringe Poncho from Chicos. Total different look where it brings out the softer hues in the poncho. Want the scarf to be a showstopper, try it with anything black.
Plaid Scarf To Add A Festive Holiday Look
Need a new look for the holidays? This is the same Classic Plaid Scarf From J Crew Outlet but in a color called Black Rich Saffron. It has hints of red, green, and blue with a background in black so I have many different outfit options to wear this scarf.
Want to get really bold? Try mixing patterns. The leopard print and plaid are an easy duo to mix. The 1901 Leopard Print Coat from Nordstrom is more black than brown and it easily goes with the Classic Plaid Scarf in Dark Saffron. I added a red turtleneck to bring additional color to the outfit.
Diva Glam With Faux Fur
Okay, you really want a fashion statement? Go Faux Fur! Nothing says, Diva, like faux fur. This is the Faux Fur Scarf in black from Target. Added to my leopard print faux fur coat from Fabulous Furs, this scarf not only adds some warmth but with my black sunglasses on gives me a total movie star look. Caution, only wear this scarf if you want to be noticed.
Scarves are a great way to get mileage out of your wardrobe. They can change what you thought was a boring outfit, into one of your favorite looks. Lots of scarves out there this shopping season.

Time For Fabulous Friday Link Up Party
What is a Link Up Party? It is a place where bloggers/Instagramers can add their most recent post (link up) in one place and check out what others are posting. Kinda like one-stop shopping for inspiration and ideas.
How does it work? Simple, we ask that you follow the host and co-host on at least one or if you want all of their social media platforms and add a link to your blog post that tells everyone where you Link UP!. Then go to the InLink Link UP tab and follow the instruction. By linking up you are giving Jennie @ A Pocketful Of Polka Dots the permission to send you a short and sweet email reminder to link up next week and check out your new friends.
Meet Our Host! So let’s get started with the party. I would like to introduce you to Jennie from A Pocketful Of Polka Dots. I have been following her for a while now on Instagram. She is a southern fashionista from South Carolina who is embracing midlife with style, grace, and fun!
Make sure you read her Fabulous Friday Post and see who she is featuring this week from last week’s link up party.
