5 Diferent Ways To Wear A Scarf: Part II
I cannot believe that five weeks have passed since I started my shopping ban. That’s a long time to go without buying anything for yourself except basic necessities, like food and household essentials! (Somewhere a kid in Africa is listening to my first world problems with horror). Surprisingly, it hasn’t been as difficult as I expected! A huge reason for that is because I’ve been so preoccupied with stuff going on in my life. With my busy work schedule, training for the race, starting bharatnatyam dance classes, etc, I’ve barely had time to think about the fact that I can’t shop. And what helps is that I have avoided stepping inside stores and, on the rare occasions that I have, nothing has really tempted me. Stores are displaying clothes for the upcoming spring season but it certainly doesn’t feel like spring to me yet. For God’s sake, we just had a blizzard last night and I’m stuck indoors today! So thankfully, this shopping ban has been relatively easy to manage…and now I just have 3 more weeks to go!
A week or so ago, I had written about how we can maximize our closet by wearing certain items in more ways than one. This way, we can put together fun and creative looks with the same article of clothing without actually buying anything new. To continue on a previous post, on how to wear a scarf in five different ways (see Part I here), here are the three other ways to this versatile piece of cloth:
3. Wear it as a top: In this picture here, I used my H&M chain print scarf as a top. You wouldn’t believe it but there several ways you can wear a scarf as a top. In this instance, I used the simplest technique - I tied 2 ends of the scarf around my neck and the other 2 ends behind my back. I completed the look with a blazer on top (we are in the midst of winter after all!). In the summer time, you can wear it as a halter top, which I’ve done with this same scarf before (check out Sew Petite Gal’s helpful tutorial for more great ideas!). Of course, the size of the scarf makes a big difference in whether you can wear it as a top or not. In this case, my scarf has square proportions, making it easier to wear as a top than something with more rectangular dimensions.
Well folks, that’s our shopping ban update for the week. Until next time!
