Scarves: your new secret weapon!

This week, Nikki shows you how to work the scarf to your style advantage.

I adore scarves and my wardrobe reflects my obsession - I have dozens! They can transform a simple outfit and instantly brighten a plain white shirt and jeans, injecting some colour. And scarves just aren't for winter - I've got a lot of sheer ones for summer too.

Scarves are the secret weapon for big girls because they do wonders for your shape. The lines elongate your torso, making you look taller and slimmer. But one of the biggest advantages is their ability to hide bumps and bulges too.

I'm always finding scarves in all sorts of shops and I've spent anywhere from $3 to $70. I've picked up some great ones from charity stores like Vinnies and the Salvation Army, so don't forget them too! Or even dig in the back of your closet and pull out ones you mightn't have worn for years. Wear them over plain T-shirts or tailored blouses.

You can knot or tie them if you like, but I find wearing them straight is the most flattering. You can even tie one onto your handbag for a splash of colour. Before you know it, you've got a whole new outfit!
