How-To: Reinvented Scarf

Lately, I have been completely obsessed with scarves, especially this one with its unexpected mix of paisley and polka dots. I think they're a great way to add color and texture to outfits and best of all, they're very multi-functional. When I first gave this sweater look a try, it was by complete experimentation. I was feeling cold, so I wore my scarf as a shawl and I decided to tie the ends to keep it from slipping off. Lo and behold, a simple, lightweight, functional way to re-implement my favorite scarves - perfect for staying covered during chilly summer nights. 

1. Pick a scarf for this look. I find one that's lightweight and rectangular-shaped is best.

2. Tie together both corners of one end to create an armhole. 

3. One knot at the wrist works, but I tied another knot close to mid-arm to add more shape to the sweater. Repeat on the other side.

4. Slip it on to see how it fits.

One-shouldered or completely covered, this easy sweater is breezy and lightweight. I hope you give it a go! From the back:
