Spring mood. How to choose a scarf for a trench coat or raincoat

Neckerchiefs are a universal part of women's wardrobe. With their help, you can complement the image, make an interesting note in a strict office style and, of course, add originality to the everyday look. Most often, women recall lightweight neck scarves in the spring, when after winter dullness the soul asks for bright and “warm” accessories. In tandem with this season's trendy trench coats and light coats, neck accessories look unusually stylish and feminine.

The secrets of the perfect combination of scarves with a coat

Spring trends in 2019 reintroduced coats and raincoats in light beige shades. Coats are that part of the wardrobe that suits every woman, which everyone uses, from small to large. In most cases, a trench coat or coat is an outerwear made of the same color fabric, so that everyday wear of such a thing does not make the image dull and monotonous, you need to have several neckerchiefs in stock.

Important! Do not bother too much and learn 100 ways to tie a scarf. In everyday life, only 2 or 3 ways can come in handy, the rest will be inappropriate for going to work or evening walks in the city.

Many girls in vain believe that a scarf tied around the neck or thrown over the shoulders will make them look like a stewardess or add a few extra years. On the contrary, a scarf or kerchief that is involved in a youth image that is well matched to a coat will only emphasize the femininity and sophistication of its owner. It remains only to figure out how to pick them up to the coat. It’s worth taking the following:


The material from which the scarf, scarf or neck scarf (French scarf) is made plays a big role. Sometimes it happens that the accessory itself is unusually beautiful and pleasant to the touch, but there is definitely nothing to wear it with. Under a coat or spring trench coat, you should buy products from:

  • weightless and unusually delicate silk;
  • translucent chiffon and guipure;
  • poplin with a small scar, which can be either double-sided, patterned or plain;
  • luxurious damask with or without a pattern.

Important! Scarves made of mohair, cashmere and thick wool are best left for the colder season than spring.

Accessory color

After choosing the right material, you need to determine the color. The following recommendations will help in this matter:

  • in order not to accidentally form an absurd and clumsy image, either a scarf or a trench (coat) should be mottled and colorful;
  • the classic is the selection of gloves, bags, headgear and neckerchief in one color scale;
  • those who want to create a vivid image can choose a scarf and coat in the same color, but in different shades (under a burgundy coat, a gently crimson silk scarf and vice versa);
  • Accessories with patterns, patterns or combining several shades are perfect for trench coats of classic calm colors.

Important! If outerwear is sewn from patterned or textured fabric, the accessory supplementing it should be smooth and monophonic.


The neck scarves, like any other accessory, have a purpose that must be considered when choosing it:

  • for decoration, you can use small scarves in addition with neat brooches or large clips;
  • if the scarf also serves as an additional heat source, then for the convenience of wearing, you do not need to add any details.

Interesting! A universal method of tying, which will both complement the image and cover the neck and shoulder line from the cool spring wind, is considered to be wrapping a half-folded (triangle) shawl or scarf around the neck. The ends can be connected with each other with a not too strong knot and straighten the loose tissue beautifully laying it on the chest or shoulders.

In order for a carefully selected image not to become a fashionable failure, it is necessary to remember that long and voluminous scarves are appropriate only if the coat is not fastened. Short neck scarves are worn exclusively under a trench coat or other outerwear. But a large and wide shawl with freely hanging edges can be nicely tied over a buttoned spring coat.
