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 voil√°, 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.
