All scarf styles are fashionable, versatile and absolute must-haves but we have to be honest: not all scarves can keep you warm and cozy during the cold season. That being said, we made a top 5 fall and winter scarves that will keep you warm and cozy while adding a much needed touch of style and creativity to your outfits:

1. The Pashmina Shawl

Light enough to be worn during spring and summer but also warm enough for the cold season, the pashmina is an absolute wardrobe must-have for any season. Choose a bright colored one to add a pop of color to your trench coat or opt for classic black and white to go with everything else in your wardrobe.

2. The Knit Infinity

Cable knit infinity or plush knit infinity, this season opt for either style you prefer as they will both offer you lots of comfort, warmth and style.

Wrap them cowl-neck style for a plus of warmth or drape them around your neck celebrity-style.

3. Patterned Knit Scarves

Modern design? Check. Cool pattern? Check. Knit? Check. Versatility? Double check.

This just might become your favorite F/W scarf style.

4. Keyhole Scarves

This season, dress up in elegance with a stylish keyhole scarf For a secure fit, this style features a discrete keyhole slit to slide through one end of the scarf so you won’t have to worry about arranging your scarf through the day.

5. Rose Detail Scarves

This is the ultimate scarf style. Combining feminine elegance with the fierceness of studs, these scarves  will add a touch of magic to any outfit you wear. Plus, you will love the softness and warmth these scarves can bring.

Guest Blog: Fall Fashion According To The Stylish LittleLimeDress

In 2011 Fashion Trends, 2012 Fashion Trends, About Scarves, Fashion Scarves, Get the Look, Women's Scarves on September 23, 2011 at 3:35 pm

We are beyond excited to present you with a fabulous guest blog post by the lovely Meaghan from Just in time for fall, Meaghan has created four stylish looks consisting of this season’s key pieces, each look under $200. Scroll down because you’re in for a fall fashion treat!

When the fabulous La Purse team came and asked me to do a style piece for the La Purse blog, I was thrilled. I have been in a serious tweeting relationship with the LP team for a while now, and a post for their blog was just the thing to show I am committed 😉 In all seriousness though, I was excited to do a post and immediately started browsing their site for which scarves I would pull. Then panic set in, how was I supposed to narrow down all these options? It took a while, but I narrowed down my choices to four fabulous pieces that are perfect for any fashionistas wardrobe. I often start building my look around accessories, and so the below picks were built from the scarf down. The looks are my personal vision and style, but the scarves were my inspiration. Here are four looks, built around La Purse scarves, all under $200!

 Look 1:

Colorblocking is not going anywhere for fall and winter, and what better way to work the trend than with a fun, playful scarf like this textured knot scarf with oval patterns in a fall inspired mustard color. I paired the scarf with a simple, more relaxed white blouse from Old Navy as a base for the mustard. The fun thing about this blouse is the round neck, long sleeves with button cuff and button tab to roll up the sleeve for a more casual look. I opted for this blouse instead of a classic button-down to give the look a more laid-back vibe. I then chose to color block the scarf with blue cropped slim fit trousers from Asos. I love the rolled cuff in the trouser, it makes the look playful and chic. Finally, keep your shoes (and handbag) neutral so not to take away from the look itself. I found these tan platform pumps for $35 from Payless; a great deal for stylish and versatile pump!

Mustard Textured Scarf, La Purse, $18

White Blouse, Old Navy, $30

Blue Slim Cropped Trousers, Asos, $37

Women’s Komet Platform Pump, Payless, $35

Total Cost of Look 1: $120

Look 2:

I started look two with the vibrant red striped lycra/viscose scarf. I had a hard time choosing the color for this scarf, but ultimately ended up with this red one. The colors reminded me of the leaves changing and the deep richness there is to the fall season. I paired the card with this chiffon maxi skirt from Forever 21. I love the idea of a chiffon maxi skirt. Ladylike, comfortable and versatile, the chiffon maxi is a great addition to a fall/winter wardrobe. It can be dressed up, or worn casual and while it may not seem like a simple base piece to build a look on, it is! At only $12.50, you can try out the look without breaking the bank. Wear the skirt with a classic turtleneck in a cream color. Not only will you get a million wears out of this Banana Republic turtleneck, but the color is a great base for all the other scarves in this post as well! I absolutely love the idea of mixing hard and soft, and so I chose to complete this look with a rugged ankle bootie from Piperlime. This is a great way to rock a rugged boot. Pair it with jeans, trousers, mini skirts & more.

Vibrant Red Stripped Lycra Viscose Scarf, La Purse, $18.45

Chiffon Maxi Skit, Forever21, $12.50

Essential Turtleneck, Banana Republic, $60

‘Velora’ by Blowfish Rugged Ankle Bootie, Piperlime, $69

Total Cost of Look 2: $160

Look 3, The Plus Size Look:

I always love to incorporate a plus size look into my styling, and while any of these looks can be translated to plus size, here is a specific look I designed around the La Purse double layer mixed purple print scarf. This scarf is so versatile, you can really wear it this  anything from from a white tee shirt and jeans to a wear to work dress, like this 2 in 1 pleated skirt dress from Asos. This dress is a great piece for the curvy girl’s closet, with a fitted bodice and high waistline it is a flattering silhouette and it isn’t bound to a specific season. Wear it through the fall and winter with boots, tights and blazers and bring it back into spring with bare legs and sandals. I thought the best way to “winterize” this look is with black opaque tights and these wedge ankle booties by Coconuts from Piperlime. If you don’t, for some strange reason, have a pair of black opaque tights you need to get them immediately. Seriously, please do not go another day without adding this simple basic hosiery choice into your wardrobe. The possibilities for your closet are endless when you have hosiery options. Throw a pair of tights under shorts, mini skirt, dresses for work- anything. Use your imagination, find inspiration and change your look for less than $20. Not feeling the wedge ankle bootie? Wear this look with pumps, flats or even boots- it is up to you, just be sure to be confident in whatever you decide! The best part of this outfit? You can rock this look to work and wear it right into the evening for drinks with friends! 

Double Layer Purple Print Scarf, La Purse, $19

2 in 1 Pleated Skirt Dress, Asos, $59

‘Josie’ Ankle Booties by Coconuts, Piperlime, $79

Black Opaque Tights, Torrid, $15

Total Cost of Look 3: $172

Look 4:

Getting dressed for a night out on the town with friends is one of my favorite things to do. There are so many options, so many fun ways to express myself, and so many accessories! I am usually a statement piece kind of girl, whether it is a huge necklace, bold earrings, or a playful scarf worn the right way, I love adding that final wow piece to my look. The lightweight metallic silver dot scarf is def one of those pieces. For $19, it can change an entire look. I chose this scarf to pair with these skinny jeans I found on Piperlime by Levis Curve. I have blogged about Levis Curve before, while they don’t fit me as a plus size 18, they certainly fit a ton of my clients and they love them. If you haven’t had the time to try them, I recommend it. The utility button up tunic from Forever 21 seemed like a great going-out top to me; lightweight, slightly oversized in that sexy way, and affordable enough where if you ruin it- its ok. Finish the look with a knee high heeled riding boot for that fall fashion effortless style we all hope to achieve.

Lightweight metallic silver dot scarf, La Purse, $19

Levis Curve Skinny Jeans, Piperlime, $55

Utility Button up Tunic, Forever 21, $25

Divine’ by Very Volatile Boot, Piperlime, $79

Total Cost of Look 4: 178

Celebrities We’d Love To See Wearing Our Scarves

In Fashion Scarves, Pashmina Scarves, Pashmina Shawls and Scarves, Summer Scarves, Women's Scarves on July 15, 2011 at 6:55 pm

One of our guilty pleasures is keeping an eye on what celebrities wear, especially the scarves they wear. After years of observing celebrity scarf styles, we feel like we have a good grasp of the scarf style some celebrities love.

Here’s a list with the celebrities we’d love to see wearing La Purse scarves and the scarf we’d pick out for each of them.

1. Jessica Alba

We’re 100% sure that Alba owns an impressive pashmina and fashion scarves collection. The actress is rarely spotted without a scarf on her neck and for this reason she’s number one on our wish list.

The scarf we’d pick out for for her: the Vibrant Red & Pink Stripped Lycra Viscose Scarf. Alba would rock this scarf, especially if she would pair it with a cute maxi dress and gladiator sandals.

2. Nicole Scherzinger

The former Pussycat Doll loves wearing animal print so naturally we would suggest the Blue Double Layered Animal Print Silk Scarf for her.

3. Kim Kardashian

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian starts is another celebrity with a passion for fashion scarves. We got to see Kim wearing some fabulous scarves over the years and we’re sure she would look amazing if she wore Double Layered Light Colors Print Silk Scarf. The scarf would go perfectly with her skin tone and let’s not forget her passion for nude colors and feminine fabrics.

4. Jennifer Aniston

Remember the famous light pink pashmina the actress wore a year ago? Well, we’d spice things up a little and suggest she’d wear the vibrant Neon Pink Pashmina Shawl.

5. Sarah Jessica Parker

If there’s one celebrity we’d love to see wearing our bold satin ruffle scarves, that’s SJP. She would look incredible with the Ruffle Scarf Teal Blue!

6. Hilary Duff

We’d love to see Hilary wearing our Grey Holes Scarf .

Other celebrities that are constantly wearing fabulous scarves are Selena Gomez, Victoria Beckham, and Nicole Richie.

We had fun scarf-styling all these celebs for this post and we’d love to know your thoughts:

Which celebrities would you style with our scarves?

How To Shop For The Perfect Scarf For You

In 2011 Fashion Trends, About Scarves, Fashion Scarves, Pashmina Scarves, Pashmina Shawls and Scarves, Summer Scarves, Women's Scarves on July 6, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Women’s scarves can easily turn an otherwise lifeless outfit into a fashion-forward look without having to spend a ton of money on pricey accessories or anything like that. It’s easy to put on a beautiful scarf and come up with a breathtaking look!

However, shopping for the perfect scarf that suits you in every way: style, color, and fabric, has to be done a certain way. You should know that a scarf can make your look but it can also break it. Meaning that if you buy a scarf just because it is trendy; without paying attention to any other details, chances are you’ll end up ruining your look.

Scarves are usually worn very close to your face so you must check to see if the color is flattering your skin tone and if the style suits your personality. The most important is that you feel comfortable with your newly purchased scarf.

Here’s a set of useful tips to keep in mind when shopping for fashion scarves:

1. Go For The Basics

You can’t  go wrong with a stylish basic scarf, such as cashmere pashmina shawls, in a solid color like black and white or neutrals such as beige, walnut or ivory cream.

These pashminas are timeless pieces that will get you from winter to spring and look well with pretty much anything else in your closet. Sure, they are a safe choice, but better be safe than sorry.

2. Shop For Fashion Scarves To Update Your Collection

If you are a scarf collector, chances are you’re always searching for the latest fashion scarves. As you’re shopping for new scarves to add to your collection, here are some important things to keep in mind:

– Don’t over do it with colors. If you plan to wear a colored outfit, don’t pair it with a multi-colored scarf because it’s just too much. Opt either for a multi-colored scarf to go with a simple outfit, or choose a scarf that features only one of the colors of your outfit.

– Shop for a neon colored scarf to add that much needed pop of color to your look!

– Do a little bit of research before you hit the stores and find out which designs are trending right now and choose the ones that suit you best.

3. Fabrics To Shop For: cashmere, cotton, silk, wool, mohair or viscose. Opt for fabrics that not only look good, but also feel good. Remember, you’ll be wearing the scarf close to your skin.

4. Shop For Colors That Complement Your Skin Tone

5. Expensive scarves aren’t always the best ones, so search for affordable high quality. There are plenty online stores that offer a wide range of quality fashion scarves at great prices.

Happy scarf shopping!
