Scarves Are a Goth's Best Friend

 ...Or at least mine. They keep you warm in the winter, can be purely decorative in the summer, and come in so many different patterns. When I'm in a hurry (Read: all the time) and don't have time to hunt down a necklace, I normally just grab one of the numerous scarves from my closet. Not to mention, if you're wearing a boring, plain black shirt that day, there's no better way to cover it up then with a scarf. (Unless you feel like wearing a jacket all day I suppose. But let's assume that it's too hot indoors for that.)

Luckily, despite the vivid colors lining the shelves, there are still plenty of monochrome scarves to be snatched up. Also, don't completely ignore color because it's 'not goth enough'. If you like that bright green and fluffy monstrosity then you make it work!  I'm constantly drawn to leopard print in unnatural shades. Don't limit yourself to black, grey, white, and more black. Here are a few scarf ideas that caught my eye while browsing. Though it seems I'm contradicting myself because I ended up with the aforementioned black, grey, white, and more black. Oops.

Most of us in this blogging sphere are enduring the winter months right now, so hunt down some scarves and use them to your advantage! Shawls, jabots, capelets, and detachable fake fur collars are also fair game of course. Another great thing you could do is rip up a plain black scarf and give it a deconstructed, maybe even post-apocalyptic feel, depending on the look you're going for. 

Right now my favorite scarf has got to be either my polka dot one or my bright red leopard print. How about you guys? Do you have a favorite scarf and/or neck accessory?

    1. I love them on other people, but I just don't think they're flattering on me! I normally take a pair of scissors to them and turn them into normal scarves. Oops?

    I love scarves!
    I do wear a Hufflepuff scarf a lot...
    Also floaty scarves in grey, black and dark red...
    I'm currently making a Stuttgart scarf for cosplay, too!

    1. I nearly bought a Slytherin one last time I was at Harry Potter world! XD Ohmygoodness I would kill for that Stuttgart scarf. I want to cosplay so many versions of Loki it's ridiculous. Lady Loki is up top right now though ;)
