Happy Tuesday, Curls!
Welcome back to the work week (for those of us who were able to have MLK off).
I decided to do a post about my scarf collections. So many women, natural, relaxed, and transitioning wear them, and since I have a scarf addiction I decided to share my collection with you! I have a total of 38 scarves. I have built my collection by picking up scarves from thrift stores, yard and estate sales, bought a few, and was gifted a few.
When people think of scarves, most think of knit scarves worn in the winter. I live in Orlando, and the temperature drops every now and again during the winter months. I use that opportunity to beak out the knit scarves. During the rest of the year, I use scarves to accentuate my look by adding color or a design to a very basic outfit, I also use them as shawls, turbans (I’ve not mastered the turban wraps to a tee yet, but I am working on it), use them to as hip scarves when I dance, as protective styling aids, add them to a wool hat to protect the hair from snagging on the wool, as a belt, etc…the uses of scarves is endless. You can also go to your favorite fabric store and purchase 3 yards of your favorite fabric to use as a turban or to wrap around your body for extra feminine flair!
