Three Unconventional Ways to Style a Large Scarf

Three Unconventional Ways to Style a Large Scarf | Designing From My Closet

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.

THE VEST

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.

THE KIMONO

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.

    Sometimes I think if we spend the time to be creative with our clothing & accessories, we can really make them fun & interesting!!

  2. HA! These are great ideas! I have been eyeing some plaid scarves on Etsy that I think I will buy now so I can do the vest trick. That makes it worth $11.99 a piece, right? Such awesome ideas!!

    1. Sorry it is taking me so long to get back in response to your comments! Thank you and I feel honored that I give you inspiration. I have so much fun experimenting that I am happy when they work out as a viable outfit.
