A scarf. Such a magical accessory. Let go of conventions, don’t wear it around your neck. We previously showed you how to wear it in your hair: as a pirat, in a turban, like Audrey Hepburn, like an Old Hollywood star. . . But there are other ways. Wear a scarf as a belt for instance.
You might have understood we are huge fans of scarves. Today, we are going to show you an original way to wear it if you are not in the mood for conventions and are tired of wearing it around your neck. A scarf worn as a belt enhances a simple dress or your waistline elegantly.
Take a pretty scarf, that is big enough to be wrapped around your waist and wrap it around your dress. With a big, loose dress, a scarf as a belt narrows the waistline and gives a more womanly figure, just like gorgeous Monica Cruz did.
You can tie it in a simple knot, or if your scarf is very big, wrap it a few times and tie it like an obi belt, as did Marc Jacobs. Choices are unlimited, let your imagination take over!
You can even wear a piece of jewelry with your scarf: a ring to prop the knot of the scarf, a brooch for more shine, place a few scarves on top of each other. . . If you have jewelry you do not wear very often, this is the opportunity to wear it!
With a long coat, to elongate the silhouette and not look bulky in it, you can belt it. Especially with a trench-coat. What’s more, it adds a splash of color into the outfit, particularly with winter coats which are often dark colors.
If you are going to the beach, you can replace your loincloth with a scarf. As seen with Marc Jacobs’s look, the scarf enhances the curves, even if you are not very curvy. The scarf tied in a turban adds a boho touch and is a little quirky. We are not sure about the flip-flops and the socks, though.
We want your opinion, what do you think about it? Would you try it?
