I love the way a scarf can elevate an outfit and add a touch of elegance to your look but I can seldom wear them around my neck in hot weather. Today I’m sharing a few ways I style scarves during the dog days of summer.
Choose a very large square scarf. Fold in half into a rectangle and tie small square knots with the corners on each side. Square knots will not slip out. Cross left over right then right over left, and tug tight.
Then simply slip your arms through the openings created and voila, instant coverage.
It’s flowy and cool and works over any sleeveless or strapless dress or top.
I also love using scarves to cover my hair. Being at the beach, windy days, or just driving will tangle and damage my baby fine, thinning hair. Here’s a favorite way I tie a scarf to protect my hair and cover a bad hair day. I’m using my favorite Herme’s scarf that my husband surprised me with several Christmases ago.
Fold a square scarf into a triangle. Place the center of fold low and straight across your forehead. Then bring the sides back and wrap them over the long triangle at the back of your head. Then tie them into a snug square knot at the base of your skull.
Many times I leave it full in the back, but today I loosely braided the ends for a more compact look. You can also tuck the ends up under the back.
