If you caught my most recent fashion post you will be aware that I have added a neckerchief to my (already limited) accessory list. After seeing a couple of cool girls wearing one – note Olivia and Hannah – I picked up a bargain one in Primark and fixed it around my neck. Now I’m not a huge fan of anything too ‘tight’ or short around my neck. Mine is a far cry from model-esque and subsequently I need something a little longer to give the illusion that I even have anything between my shoulders and my head. Chockers have always been a no-go.
So I loosely secured my new friend around my neck, leaving enough space to clearly see the said part of my body, and whaddya know! I bloody love it! I’ve been added it to pretty much every outfit, just a little bit of sommin’ extra as my day-to-day style can be a little erm, underwhelming. I haven’t been brave enough to wear it to the office yet, so instead I have devised a couple of different ways with a neckerchief for those of you who, like me, need to work their way up to and adventurous work fashion choice.
- Classic neckerchief
Number one if of course the classic around-the-neck neckerchief. Tie it however you like, and wear it with what ever you like. As I mentioned before I wear mine a little looser, but feel free to tie it closer in, or even give it a tie to the side, in a sixties air hostess fashion. I’ve got my eye out for a red neckerchief to wear with a blue and white striped top. That’s the weekend outfit of my dreams.
2. Around the head
For those who don’t fancy using your neckerchief as an actual tie might like to attempt it as a headband or head scarf instead. I’m sure there are lots of ways you could tie it to add a little pop to your outfit, but I’ve gone for the classic knot/bow here. It will definitely be something I adopt more in the summer – hair up in a messy bun, headband just so and shades on. In my mind I look cool, alright.
3. Add it to a bag
Number three is a very simple but effective way to incorporate a neckerchief. Here I’ve tied it around the strap of my bag and left the end hanging down, but you might fancy it more in a big bow. Or on the top handle of a backpack would be ideal. Just a cheeky little flash of colour when you turn around.
I’ve definitely found a new accessories obsession for the summer, so expect to see it a lot more around here. What other ways would you use a neckerchief to add to your outfit? Let me know as I’m sure I’ll need a few more ideas soon! If you want to follow me on Bloglovin or Instagram to catch all the knew posts around here!
