By Sixty and Me September 06, 2019 Beauty

As you get older, you might feel that you need to tone down your look. That shouldn’t be the case. On the contrary, you should embrace this new season of life with fun and fashionable looks and accessories that highlight your unique sense of style.

A good example of a versatile accessory piece that you can try is headscarves. They can instantly elevate your outfit to a fabulous new level.

In today’s video, Margaret talks to Suzi Grant of Alternative Ageing about classy ways to use this fierce and fashionable accessory.

Why Choose Headscarves

Suzi loves headscarves. They are her fashion staple. And it’s not hard to see why. There are several reasons why scarves make great accessories.

First of all, they are very budget-friendly! Scarves are available at all price points, and you can find beautiful ones in vintage and thrift shops for really cheap.

Aside from being inexpensive, scarves are incredibly diverse. They can look elegant, fun, and even sophisticated based on their patterns and how you use them.

They are functional too. Scarves are the perfect way to highlight a great hairdo or hide a bad one! They can also cover your roots if you are in between salon visits.

1 Simple Headscarf, 3 Different Ways

The best thing about headscarves is how versatile they are. If you change the way you wear them you can change the way they accentuate your look. Here are three simple and stylish ways to wear headscarves.

The Top Knot

This easy style gives you a pop of sophisticated glam. Just fold your square scarf and tie two succeeding knots down the middle. Then position the knots on top of your head and tie the scarf at the nape of your neck. The knots on top give you a trendy and playful look.

Side Swept

Get ready to head to the South of France with this classic look. Just fold your scarf diagonally and tie it around your head knotting at the nape of your neck. Then slide the scarf to the side until the ends are hanging over one shoulder. Add a pair of sunglasses and you’ve got that holiday vibe.

The Wide Headband

If you have longer scarves or sarongs, this look is for you! First fold your long scarf or sarong. Then place it on top of your head wrapping it under your hair, and bringing it back up to the top of the head. Knot the scarf at the top of your head tucking the ends of the scarf into the sides. You can widen the headband by pulling the scarf apart to cover more of your head.

A Fun Fashion Must-Have

Headscarves are practical and fashionable. Whether you choose to wear them in a simple, quirky, or sophisticated way, they can instantly add style to your outfit of the day.
