Scarves are the perfect transition from summer to fall fashion.
They’re light and airy and can be worn a million different ways – around your neck, your waist and even head. Plus, they’re the perfect accessories to pair with the summer clothes you’re still wearing while shifting into your fall wardrobe, and look adorable doing it. Here are some new ways to wear your scarf this season:
1. The Poncho
Since it’s not cold enough to break out all your cute coats and cardigans, the perfect solution is to use a scarf as one! This can be done with everything from light and airy solid-color scarves to thicker patterned scarves (plaid is especially hot in the fall). All you have to do is untwist and unwrap your scarf, then drape it over your shoulders, like a shaw. Adjust and finish this look off with a cute belt.
2. The Bow
A cute, yet loose way, to wear a scarf during the early fall, is to make a bow. You can make it tight and distinct for work or loose and relaxed for more casual outings. Just place the scarf around your neck evenly so both ends are in front. Then, all you need to do is tie the scarf like you would a shoe to create a bow. Length is up to you and your style.
3. The Braid
If you’re looking for a fun, easy twist on the typical double loop style, then consider braiding your scarf. This easy-to-do braid not only catches people’s attention, but will have them asking you how you did it! First, fold your scarf in half and loop in around your neck. Instead of pulling the two ends through the loop, you’re going to weave them. Take one end of the scarf and weave it over and through the loop and then take the other and weave it under and through the loop.
3. The Side Knot
Scarves make perfect headpieces – they can keep you cool or warm depending on the fabric – and they look adorable. Take the scarf and place it on your head with the longer ends falling over your shoulders. You want to level off where the scarf will hit your forehead. Then twist each side of the scarf outward until it looks like you have two pigtails. Once you’ve done that, twist those ends together and tuck in the ends of the scarf to hold it in place, creating a cute site knot.
