Wearing scarves used to be intimidating to me. I had no idea what to do with them despite me having quite a collection of them. After organizing them all next to my necklaces, which I had no issues at all wearing, I took on a personal challenge to commit myself to wearing one at least once a week. I went into more detail in my How To Wear A Scarf post that has quite a few examples of different ways I was able to style them. Today I am creating a smaller sequel to that post focusing on large scarves and wearing them in unconventional ways.
To achieve this vest look using a large square scarf, I placed it behind me with the middle of one edge to the center of my back right under my scapula. I then wrapped the scarf under my arms. The top corners of the scarf got pulled up around the front of my arms to behind my neck where I tied the corners in a knot.
THE WRAP SKIRT
This wrap skirt effect was created during the last session of the Designing From Your Closet Style Challenge. I took this large rectangular leopard print scarf and simply wrapped it around my waist over a paneled skirt. I secured the tie with a safety pin on the back side.
Two thrifted rectangular striped scarves were transformed into a fringed kimono by sewing them together. To keep them the focus of the outfit, I placed it over a simple light blue t-shirt dress that I belted. I created a video to show this simple process of making the kimono.
