How to Wear an Oversized Scarf

How to Wear an Oversized Scarf

As the days grow shorter and the temperature drops, there's one accessory that every fashion-conscious woman needs in her wardrobe - the oversized scarf. Chunky, cosy, and oh-so-stylish, an oversized scarf is a must-have for the autumn and winter seasons. And when they’re made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, like our colourful REplaid Oversized Vegan Mohair Scarves, you're not just staying warm and on-trend - you're also making a planet-friendly choice. 

Embrace the Oversized Trend

    As The Guardian reports, the oversized scarf trend looks set to become even bigger this winter, and for good reason. They are incredibly versatile and can instantly elevate any outfit if you know how to style them (more on that below).

    Go for Bold and Colourful

      This is a trend for the maximalist, which means it’s time to go bold or go home. Bright colours combined with simple patterns are the flavour of the season, such as the multi-coloured REplaid scarves, which add a pop of personality to plain coats.

      Get Creative with Styling

        There are countless ways to wear an oversized scarf, and part of the fun is experimenting with different styles. You can keep it simple by draping your scarf loosely around your neck or wear it slung over one shoulder for an effortlessly chic look. For extra warmth and to keep your scarf in place, try tying your scarf around your neck, keeping one end longer than the other (as pictured below).


        Layer Up for Extra Warmth

          One of the best things about oversized scarves is their ability to keep you extra warm. Even on chilly days, you can ditch the big coat and layer your scarf over a leather jacket or cosy jumper for a look that's as stylish as it is snug.

          Keep it Ethical and Sustainable

            Unfortunately, almost every oversized scarf on the market is made from virgin plastic and/or mohair wool. Both of these options have a high carbon footprint and are environmentally unsustainable. That’s why we consciously chose to our make our scarves out of 100% recycled plastic bottles instead – a more ethical, vegan-friendly and sustainable choice.

            In conclusion, the oversized scarf is an easy way to elevate your winter style without overhauling your wardrobe. Want to make a statement about your commitment to the environment? Shop the REplaid Oversized Vegan Mohair Scarves by Shinjuku Lanes.
