Many Faces of A Scarf: Savvy Ways to Wear a Scarf

I adore this floral pink scarf
To many, scarves can be boring because it is something simply tied wrapped around the neck. However, silk scarf is one of my favorite accessories because a scarf is not just a neck accessory. In fact, a simple scarf has many faces! A gal has a use for scarves from head to toe.
A long thin scarf like the one above can accent a gal's outfit or her bag. I often use a scarf as a bag accent, which makes the look totally unique and snazzy.
My all time favorite scarf is 35 cm square because this size is so versatile.
A large 35 cm silk scarf can become a beautiful head accessory.
In stead of boring old bag strap or chain, a silk scarf can become a pop of color as a bag strap. I have used this to make my bags snazzy.
Folding a silk scarf diagonally across will change it into a strapless top instantly. It is a savvy stylish way to add colors to an outfit. A gal can add a jacket or cardigan to make it less drafty in the back. I love to wear silk scarves this way in the summer.

Right: A long scarf will turn into a colorful bikini top.

Right: A 35 cm square scarf can turn into a halter top.
Tie two scarves together around the hip area to create a stylish skirt.

After sharing various new modes to wear silk scarves, I want to share that my savvy sponsor Women Clothing Today offers a great selection of savvy silk scarves at very reasonable prices, from about $30 to $100. My favorite is the pink floral long scarf here for only $26.35. What about you, are you ready to update and glam up your wardrobe with new scarves?

  5. I am always a few moments behind you with my brand obsessions. In my scope: Hermes scarves. I'm on my Birkin plan (30cm), lusting after the versatile farandole necklace (120cm) and planning to add many, many H scarves to the mix in the next year. This post was very timely for me.

  11. I really like the it on the bag. I was shopping with a friend on Saturday, and there were several really beautiful scarves I liked. But I NEVER wear them around my neck. I like the idea of them, but I don't love having to put it on and take it off all the time.

  18. I remember seeing scarves tied on bags everywhere in Europe! It's such a chic way to use scarves in a new way. I'm not sure I'm confident enough in my knotting skills to wear a scarf as a top though!
