3 ways to style your Infinity scarf

A basic must-have that everyone needs in their wardrobe is an infinity scarf. I’ve fallen in love with infinity scarves, so much so that normal scarves have become a thing of the past. They are so easy to just throw on and the placement always looks great. To show you guys how versatile this cozy accessory is, here are three ways to style it.



1. Keep it causal! This look will work for anyone and everyone. It’s the easiest way to work an infinity scarf into your wardrobe. The first way I styled this gorgeous cranberry infinity scarf with a soft tunic sweater. This is a perfect outfit for running errands and holiday shopping!  I simply threw on a pair of fleece leggings and tall boots to complete the look.


2. Next, I went with a little dressier look. Dress up your scarf with something shiny or sparkly. I paired the same scarf with super fun gold harem pants and a simple grey top. I finished off my look with a leopard-print clutch.


3. Infinity scarves even work with edgier outfits. I couldn’t resist throwing in a little leather. It’s a great way to mix up the textures of your ensemble.  I threw on my staple leather jacket over a tight striped midi dress and finished off the look with a pop-color bag.

Winter Trend – Leather Pants

If you’re going to try one trend this season, make it leather (or faux leather) pants! They’re super hot right now and a great way to break from your everyday denim. I love the edginess they bring to feminine pieces and even some of the most basic neutrals. On top of being chic, they can be extremely comfortable. You know the saying, “Style over comfort?” Well, that’s not the case with leather pants!

Leather pants are most likely my favorite alternative to jeans. They fit the body nice and snug, keep you warm, and add a wow factor to your outfit. Initially, I thought there were limited ways to style leather pants, but after living in my leggings, I realized they’re a lot more versatile than I thought. Try going casual cool in black and white, pair them with a classic cable knit, or add a menswear vibe with a plaid buttondown. However you decide to style your pants, I promise you’ll not only look chic, you’ll feel chic too!

Isabel Marant Collection for H&M



It’s T-minus eight days until the Isabel Marant collection hits select H&M stores worldwide, and the retailer has just launched a dedicated microsite in anticipation. It features plenty of photos of the line, a countdown clock and video—all arranged in a Tumblr-like format.

According to the site, the H&M locations carrying the collection will open at 8am local time on November 14 and the online shop will begin offering the collab at 12pm EST. In the “how to shop” section, H&M explains that they will again be utilizing a wristband system to organize shoppers day-of. The first 300 people in line will be broken down into groups of thirty and each will receive a colored wristband that corresponds to their group. Each group will have 15 minutes to shop the collaboration, and there will be five minute breaks between groups while staff, presumable, straightens out and restocks. After three and a half hours, the collaboration will be opened up to everyone.

H&M will be enforcing a purchase limit to try to curb resellers. Each shopper can purchase one item per style. Returns will be accepted for three days after the collection’s release.
