Scarf Belts... Add Flair To Your Fashion Look For Less Than $7!

Mar 4, 2008
Scarf belts for that extra flair! Many women have been turning to new ways to accessorize their wardrobe and compliment their summer dresses and evening wear. Scarves and shawls have long been worn over the shoulders and around the neck as one way to do this, but lately the scarf belt has also become popular.

These accessories are basically what they sound like: worn around the waist. Generally they wrap around once or twice and then are either joined in the middle by a buckle or a knot so that the remainder of the scarf belt hangs loosely down the side, the front, or the back. These fashion statements can be knotted and dangling at the small of the back can look almost like a train for a gown and give a sense of elegance to the dress being worn.

A belt tied in front can give just the right detail to an otherwise plain colored dress and give that sense of motion and fluidity as a person walks. Less commonly, they can be tied and hanging from the side can set the dress apart from the norm and give that extra edge.

Strictly speaking, these scarf belts need to be made of relatively thin material or they end up adding bulk where slimness is desired and become cumbersome at precisely the place where agility is required. For this reason, silk and satin are popular fabrics for this type of clothing. One can also find sequined and crocheted varieties, as well as different types of synthetic fabrics.

The color and design needs to be chosen in relation to that which it will accessorize (That's why its important to have several). If it will be worn upon a decorative dress with a certain design then it will either need to match that design or be plainly colored to match and draw out one of the colors within the design of the dress. If it will be worn upon a plainly colored dress then it can add detail to the look by having a design or a complimentary color of its own.

Something else to consider when choosing and purchasing one is how exactly it is going to be worn around yourself. Some prefer to keep it simple and to loosely knot the it in the desired location. Others wish to have a buckle or a pin of some sort which can further accentuate the look of itself. Either way they will choose to have each side of it dangle at equal lengths or they will offset them for a less exact but no less fluid look.

Remember, its important to have several available (how about keeping them in your car?) so you can quickly and easily change your look to fit the impromptu occasion. Add a bright colored one when going out to meet friends at your favorite drinking spot. Guaranteed...you will be noticed.
Or use a more subdued one to wear at work and on that important first date.

Regardless of how they are worn or what style and fabric in which they are made, scarf belts are a wonderfully versatile and elegantly beautiful way to add to any wardrobe and compliment what you are wearing.
