The versatile square silk scarf! One of the most versatile fashion pieces is a large square scarf and this accessory is just perfect for spring and summer. Below, you can learn about six ways to add some style to how you use square scarves.
1. Wear the scarf as a trendy bandana:
This will add a nice, sporty touch to your outfit. Just be careful what you pair with it so you don’t overdo the cowgirl look. To create a bandana, fold the scarf down its middle diagonally. Do not wear the scarf bandana straight across the front and then back. Try to tilt it one side to make it less Western.
2. Turning your scarf into a neckerchief is another great way to don this accessory:
It’s just a simple updating of the classic style mentioned above so the finished product looks like a more casual scarf bandana. Just fold the scarf diagonally so you have a triangle and then roll this triangle to make a skinny, long tie. Then, simply tie the scarf around the neck and finish with simple knot.
3. Wear your scarf as a bracelet:
This is a rather novel idea but no less stylish. Just like how square scarves can make great alternatives to necklaces, they can also work as lovely bracelets. To begin, fold the scarf in a diagonal and roll it into a long, thin tie just like you did with the neckerchief. Next, wrap the thin scarf around the wrist several times until you’ve reach the end. The scarf should be tied just tight enough to keep the scarf in place but not too tight as to restrict blood flow. You would likely need a friend to help you on this one because it would be difficult to tie a scarf on your wrist without help.
4. Wearing square scarves as head bands is a popular trend today:
And if you haven’t tried this yet, all you need to do is start with an ordinary ponytail and then turn the scarf into a thin band just like in previous styles. Then, tie the scarf around your head with a knot on the back of your neck. If you prefer a neat look, insert the tails of the scarf under the bands so they will remain invisible. Then, release your hair free from the ponytail and you’re all set. Still another fresh way to use square scarf as a hair accessory is to tie it around your normal hair tie. Of course, don’t forget to make the scarf into a rolled, skinny band first.
5. You could also make a fashion statement with scarves without draping it over any part of your body:
Dress up any of your plain-looking bags by tying a square scarf into a big ribbon to one of the straps of your bag.
6. Another chic style is to wrap a straw hat with a scarf:
Just fold your scarf into an oblong and wrap it around the hat’s brim and tie the ends into a square knot at the back.
