Silk Scarf as Head Accessory

As summer is approaching, I am thinking of ways to jazz up my look without adding more layers to the body. What is better than using a bright colorful scarf to accent a white summer outfit.  As much as I adore cool white for summer, it can be slightly monochromatic and boring.

*Thanks to an unknown bug, I have this most annoying bug bite on my cheek. Sigh.......
It does not matter the time of the year, using a scarf as stylish accent is always my cup of tea. It is super easy to use a silk scarf and change it into a savvy head accessory. My favorite hair-do is a loose braid to go with the scarf accent. This way, the overall look is stylish, without looking like I am trying to relive my elementary school years with a pigtail. How do you like to jazz up your summer outfits?

How To:
1. Fold large 35 inch silk scarf diagonally into a triangle
2. With the longest side, center on forehead
3. Wrap around head and tie at the back on two ends snugly around the head

  8. This looks great on you! I can't do silk scarves in my hair for some reason--they just slip out. Maybe I could tie a small silk scarf on a ponytail...?

  10. @Lisa: silk scarf will slip off my head too. but i usually pull it lower so it fits snugly on against my forehead which makes it more secure.
