Get Inventive with Scarves


Creativity knows no bounds and the ever-versatile scarf opens doors to so many fun looks! A humble square or oblong lightweight scarf can take an outfit to the next level with just a little bit of gumption. Make good use of that well-worn scarf, get it out of the bottom drawer and back into the lime light as an alternative accessory. Transform your scarf and wear it as an inventive addition far from the regular wrap and roll styles predominantly used.

Here are a few inventive tricks and tips to revamp your style with imaginative uses that make for wonderful boho chic additions to everyday outfits.


Vest it up

Transform your scarf into a throw over vest that adds instant charm worn over simple dresses. Take a lightweight scarf and fold it in half horizontally if it’s a longer piece of fabric. Tie all the ends together in a single secure knot. Look for the two holes formed and put your arms through and your scarf has been transformed into chic vest.

A perfect accessory for a trip to the market or when at a music festival, scarf vest look stunning worn over a simple white asymmetrical hem frill dress matched with suede leather moccasins.

Pretty up your hair do

Hair tied up in a bun or in a ponytail often leaves much room for additional styling additions. Reinvent an ordinary hair updo by adding a small square scarf to finish up the knot. A cute printed or graphic accent looks phenomenal against the stark background of hair and adds a variety of color when pairing additional accessories to complete your look.


Complete a top bun with a scarf knotted in a bow to create a glamorous fashionista look. Wear this style on almost any kind of dress or add a dash of feminine delight to pants and shirt combos.

Statement scarf necklace or belt

An easy and effortless way to add instant chic to any day outfit, scarves make brilliant statement necklaces. Use a lightweight printed chiffon scarf, and make single knots leaving a sufficient distance between each knot to create a pleasant and playful addition to brighten up dresses and day outfits.

This inventive take on a scarf also makes a cool and marvelous addition as a belt that can be tied to accentuate your waist on loose sheath dresses, or looped around high waist trousers and jeans for an effortless boho chic street style look.
