Does it Complement Your Body Frame?If there's one thing you should be careful with when it comes to womens scarves, then that has to be the scale & thickness of the scarf and its tendency to add bulk and highlight your body scale.
ScaleThis is especially geared towards petite and thin-boned women. A super-chunky knit is very trendy for Fall/Winter and all but can look funny on gals who have an opposite body scale!
Petites & Thin-boned body figures
You don't want to look like you're drowning in your own scarf, so if you're Petite be on the look-out for scarves that have a thin to medium knit texture. Another way to free up your neck is to let one of the ends hang freely on your bust.
Your body scale can handle thicker and larger scarves. But if you're a plus size petite I recommend you to go for medium scale scarf styles.

There's no need to completely eliminate scarves from your closet. You just need to style it correctly and wear the right style that help downplay your chest.
