10 ways to wear a scarf for summer
I live on the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona. We have triple-digit highs here from at least June through September. If you live somewhere hot, you know cardigans and blazers are out so how do we jazz up an outfit without risking heat stroke?? A SCARF!
If you know me, you know I loooove scarves! They’re fun, versatile and are an easy way to elevate your 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.

Here we go!
1. Tied as a vest.
This is one of my favorites and this trick is a HUGE hit at my speaking gigs.
Here’s the look. The width of the scarf determines how long it is.

You can also wear it like this with a belt without adding a lot of bulk or weight.
2. Tied to your purse or bag.
A pop of color and texture without making you feel hotter.
3. On your head.
As a headband (click the image caption for a tutorial).
How cute is this?? Very “boho chic.”
4. To jazz up some flip flops!
5. As a clever beach cover-up.
6. The classic sarong (but with a colorful top and bold accessories).
7. Like you’re riding in a 1950s convertible.
I love the vintage vibe!
8. As jewelry.
Here’s a bracelet…(check out the link in the caption)
…and a light-weight necklace.
9. As a belt.
This is such a pretty look!
10. As a neckerchief.
My first boyfriend always remembered the leopard-print neckerchief I was wearing when he first met me.
Classic and simple.
