Pair a bright scarf with a chambray shirt and flowing blouse like SDN gal, Krista!

While most of us dream of heading to a tropical beach in the summertime, weekends at the lake are a more likely option here at Midwest-based Scarves Dot Net. When you’re packing for a weekend of fun at the lake, you probably toss a swimsuit, cutoff denim shorts, and flip flops in your weekender tote and head for the door. But why miss a chance to impress with the ultimate fashion envy? Implementing summer scarves into your look can be fun, especially with these creative styles!

Sizzle In a Scarf Bustier

Who says scarves are just for wearing around your neck? How cute is this adorable scarf bustier? Perfect for lounging dockside after a day on the water, this look is easy and affordable to create. Simply fold a scarf to the width you would like your bustier to be, and tie it into a knot in the back. Now bring the strings of the knot around to the front and tuck them in at the top, creating a faux sweetheart neckline! Tip: Be sure to choose a scarf that is large enough to wrap around you, and isn’t see-through!

Accentuate Your Style With A Pan Am Neck Knot

Nothing says sophistication like the pan am neck knot! Add this look to a quarter-sleeved nautical-striped top and linen trouser shorts for an adorable, lake-appropriate look! To make this summery knot, take a small, square scarf, fold it diagonally and drape it around your neck. Next, tie a simple knot, center it, and adjust it to your liking. Check out how SDN Gal, Maggie, wore this nautical knot!

Stripes, boat shoes, and a classy neck scarf are oh-so nautical!

Sweeten The Day With a Scarf Halter Top

Here’s another fun way to wear scarves as clothing. The scarf halter top is easy to create and light enough for a hot summer day. To create this look, drape a large scarf across your back and shoulders, as you would a towel, and cross the ends in the front and across your chest, spreading them out to cover yourself. Wrap them around your chest once more, and tie behind your neck for a homemade halter! Make this look extra perfect for a day at the lake by opting for a fun, nautical style like this Lulu Mixed Media Scarf, paired with a black bandeau or bikini top for added coverage.
