1 Summer Scarf, 4 Ways


Here ye, here ye, I do declare this to be the summer of the scarf. I bought myself some cute cotton scarves from Madewell a a few weeks ago and have been wearing them all the livelong day. (Madewell must have sold out of the one pictured. It’s a cutie.)

Here are my four favorite ways.


The Big Bow. This one is easy enough. Just roll the scarf up and tie into a bow. (Remember, right over left and then left over right makes the prettiest ones.) After you tie, just fan out the bow parts to create a large bow.


The Head Wrap. Pull your hair up into a messy updo or tucked-under ponytail. Fold your scarf into a triangle and tuck the ends under. Start at the nape of your neck and pull the scarf upward, covering most of your ears, and then tie into a knot on the top of your head. Tuck the ends under, and voilá, sexy European beachy vibe.


The Top Knot. Once again, easy breezy. Roll up your scarf, wrap around the base of your top knot, and tie the ends. Adds a fun pop of color to an otherwise predictable updo.


The Boy Scout. I saw this look on a Madewell employee a few weeks ago and fell in love. It’s one of those styles that makes you wonder…do I like it? Is it too boy scout/country western? Who cares! It’s fab.

Will you be busting out the scarves this summer?

    Very cute ways to use a scarf!!! Seeing these pictures made me wonder – have you ever done a bangs tutorial, aka – how do your bangs look so perfect? Just curious. Thanks!

    I think the head wrap looks especially cute on short hair. I am going to try to rock it.
