One Scarf, Many Looks

I am a scarf hoarder, and can’t resist picking up pieces with particularly eye-catching prints and colour combinations. A scarf is a versatile summer wardrobe must-have, and I just wanted to do a recap on how I manage to wear one of my favorites in three totally different styles:


We are in the age of advocating recycling, and here I am recycling an old post you might have missed 🙂 I bought this scarf from Zara about a year ago, and love its funky leopard print and gorgeous turquoise hue. So fresh and summery without being a cliche floral I’d say!

  1. As a Scarf: Duhh! Pretty obvious this one:-) It also doubles up as a shawl for the chilling A/C and a cover-up from the midday sun.

  2. Bolero: Fold the scarf in half, and tie the two ends of each corner together. Slip your arms through each hole for a funky, one-of-a-kind bolero!

  3. The Halterneck Dress: With the scarf open against your back, take two corners in both hands. Pull the right corner over the left of your neck, and do vice versa for the other. Tie the two ends behind the neck. This look is perfect for covering up by the poolside!

For a boho-ethnic twist, dig out your favorite Indian dupattas (the often heavily embroidered, colourful scarves used with most Indian outfits).

Loved this easy to follow video by the gogeous Komal from PopXO.com:

 

I hope this post makes you dig into your scarves collection and reconsider how versatile these beauties really are 🙂 If you are anything like me, you’ll be heading off to the mall sometime soon for more!
