You’ve probably packed up your scarves along with your beanies and down jackets. But what if we told you there’s an oft-forgot breed of scarf? It’s lightweight – usually made of cotton, silk or linen – and can be worn even on sunny days. It’s called the summer scarf. And to prove our point here are three ways you can wear one this season.
Called so because, as you can see, it looks like an oversized necklace and is anchored with a knot. Treat it like an actual necklace. This style is ideal for your favorite sleeveless summer dress. Bonus: when the temperature dips at night, you can untie it and wrap it around your shoulders.
Did we have to show you how to do this one? Okay, maybe not. But the point is – it’s a classic for a reason. It’s a standby that’ll work with almost any outfit. With a blazer? Yup. With a bathing suit? Absolutely. Around machinery? 100% no. It would get caught in the gears. What are you thinking?
It’s called the French Knot. It looks similar to the French braid hairstyle (and the knotted bread you see in your local bakery.) It’s a relatively easy knot that adds a bit of sophistication to any outfit. The result is a high and tight style that works for more formal affairs like garden parties, weddings, graduation parties. Though no one would bat an eye if you wore it to the grocery store.
