In the fall and winter, hardly a day goes by that I don’t wear a scarf. I hate being cold, so a scarf often serves as an emergency blanket as well as an outfit-making accessory. You may think my scarf collection gets ignored in warmer weather, but that certainly isn’t the case.
My thick, heavy scarves stay at the back of the rack, but my lightweight, silky varieties move front and center. There are many ways to style scarves for summer; today I’m showcasing two of them.
Chambray shirt: Madewell; jean shorts: Loft; scarf: thrifted; earrings: Bauble Bar; belt: Loft; wedges: Old Navy
One thing I like to do is use silk square scarves as hair accessories. Since my hair is in that awkward growing out stage (can’t you just be long already?!) anything I can do to get it out of my face is a good thing. This is a pretty big scarf, so I knotted it in the front then brought the ends to the back to tie.
Even if it’s hot as all get out outside, chances are if you’re going anywhere indoors, they’re going to have the air conditioner going full blast. So when I’m getting dressed up for a date night or a wedding, I add a scarf to wear in potentially meat locker-ish conditions.
Dress: Merona, Target; scarf: Loft; sandals: Target
