10 ways to wear a scarf for summer

It’s hot. Cardigans and blazers are out so how do you jazz up an outfit without burning up? A scarf!

If you know me, you know I loooove scarves! They’re fun, versatile and are an easy way to jazz up an outfit.

If you don’t already own a few scarves, they’re widely available now as they’ve come back into fashion. Secondhand stores are a good source, too. Antique shops and vintage shops tend to have them as well.

Ask your aunt or grandmother if they have any scarves for you!

The longer, wider scarves are great for the sarongs and vests while the shorter ones are perfect for tying to your bag or around your neck.

Funky patterns and colors are “in” right now!

Keep an eye out and build your collection! Even if the pattern isn’t something you would wear in its full glory, it might still be just the right “pop” to add to your outfit.
