You want to repeat a scarf’s colors for a great look

Work outfit inspired by the colors of a scarf

This outfit of the day was inspired by the colors of this Louis Vuitton scarf that I found in a consignment store in town for just $5. Some times I am really astonished what treasures people have in their closets.

How I created the look

I picked items from my closet that have colors that occur in the scarf’s print. Since it has gotten cold again, I had to bundle up. Thus, a cashmere sweater in pink like the flowers on the scarf with a brown long sleeve T-shirt underneath plus my leather sheath are a perfect combination with otk-boots and tights. To add extra insulation I wear two pairs of tights and a half slip.

Use the colors of a scarf's print as inspiration for the color combination of your outfit. #styletip Click To Tweet

How I wore the pieces of this outfit before

When you are already reading the blog of a while you may remember the mock neck pink cashmere sweater that I wore before with three shades of pink in the post at the link. You can see how I styled this leather sheath dress before in the post at this link. In case you missed it or when you are new here, you can find another way of styling the over-the-knee boots in the post at this link.

These otk-boots are fantastic to keep the knees warm. For some interest and extra insulation of my neck I added this Louis Vuitton silk scarf. The scarf and its print ties the color combination of the outfit all together. The result is a posh work outfit.

Styling your outerwear is a must

For the commute I added my new burgundy motorcycle coat. You have seen the coat with a Fair Isle sweater in the post at the link before. Again I wear this shearling beauty with the burgundy beret. Nevertheless, this outerwear outfit looks a little different as my leg “coverage” differs strongly from how I wore this coat the first time around.

When winter lasts from early October to end of April you really have to try hard not to get bored of your coats and “outerwear outfit”. Thus, I try to create a new one every time. Watch it.
