How to wear a scarf: way #1 is to line a V-neckline. V-necklines flatter short women by helping to create the illusion of a longer line overall as well as a longer neck. To wear a scarf this way, just fold a rectangular shaped oblong scarf and tuck it inside the V-neckline. A square scarf will work also, but it will require more folding and may make for a bulkier appearance, so if you use a square scarf, select a lightweight one, such as silk chiffon. Because a scarf worn in way #1 will be right next to your skin, stay away from any fabric, such as scratchy wool, that's not totally comfortable.
