How To Wear A Scarf In The Office

I’ve always coveted a “signature style piece,” something that a friend could look at and immediately proclaim, “That’s so YOU!” Cubicle Chic has certainly helped me define my personal style, but I also think I now have a signature: polka dots!

I originally wore this scarf as a tube top on Independence Day, but it has SO MANY USES. Here, I’ve incorporated it into an otherwise plain office ensemble by tying it the same way I tie winter scarves: double up the scarf, draped it around my neck and pulled the loose ends through the loop. Lately I’ve been tying it to my bag (same way), giving it a little extra flavor!

If you couldn’t tell, it’s an SDV piece… scarves are another fantastic way to work some vintage into your office wardrobe. You may think I am crazy for wearing a silk scarf in the heat of summer, but during the day it kept the air conditioning-induced goosebumps away 🙂

The magenta shoes add playful touch to the white and navy combination, and they’re not too much for day to day wear. Unexpected pops of color are my favorite.
