How to Look Elegant in Thong Sandals Like Cindy Crawford

Here’s another great example of how a scarf can do wonders to your outfit, no matter how ordinary it is.

Check out Cindy Crawford’s airport style from her trip back to Los Angeles. The former supermodel was decked in simple sweater and jeans as she arrived at LAX with her daughter early this month. Her attire for the day was certainly nothing fancy. It was even extra casual given the pair of shoes she wore, namely flat thong sandals. Despite the laid-back ensemble, however, Cindy still managed to look elegant as she made her way out of the airport. Her secret — a pair of sunglasses for added drama, plus a gorgeously printed scarf.

Ok, we admit it. Perhaps being tall and statuesque helped a little in the looking good department. But if we “isolate” that particular characteristic and put the same outfit on a small lady like, say, Vanessa Hudgens, you’ll still get the same elegant vibe.

That’s basically the power of a good scarf. In which case, this is a cue all of us should take, should we find ourselves in a pair of flip flops or thong sandals with our sweater and jeans. Simply up the ante by topping the combination with a colorful scarf and voila! You don’t look too shabby anymore.

Try these pretty printed neck warmers from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg to copy Cindy’s style. The piece from MMJ is crafted from 100% gauze wool, and comes printed with the label’s logo. The extra from DVF, on the other hand, is crafted from modal-silk blend so it’s extra soft, cool, and smooth. Wear any of these scarves with a colorless sweater and cropped skinny jeans, then you’re all set!
