5 Ways To Wear A Scarf (And NOT around your neck!)

If you've ever only worn a scarf around you neck, you're gonna love this! As an official broke girl, I have to be inventive when it comes to new looks. A scarf is a great item that can be worn as anything from a pussy-bow tie to a skirt! Read on for an in-depth guide of how to use your scarf for, erm, well, anything!

Scarf As A Strapless Top
 You will need: Any scarf long enough to wrap round your torso.

For a make-shift strapless top, I folded my satin scarf in half, then tucked the top into a bandeau top. 

Scarf: Vintage
Dungarees: Valleygirl
Shoes: Rubi
Sunnies: K Mart

Scarf As A Wrap Top
You will need: A VERY long scarf

Unless you've been living under a rock, you will know that the halter neck is the in neckline of the moment. Skip going to the shops to buy one and instead wrap your scarf around your neck, over your chest and tuck into high waist shorts.

Scarf: River Island
Earrings: Lovisa
Cuff: From a market
Shorts: Jay Jays
Bandeau: Factorie

Scarf As A Waist Belt
You will need: A long, thin scarf

A cute patterned scarf is an amazing way to break up an otherwise color-blocked outfit, as well as showing off the result of your gym routine. Extra style points for the pretty bow it creates at the back!

Scarf: Accessorize
Cami: Valleygirl
Skirt: Ark
Heels: Rubi
 Sunglasses: Ray Ban

Scarf As An Asymmetric Midi Skirt

You will need: A large, square scarf

Simply wrap the scarf around your torso, tucking the top into a bodycon mini skirt. Then leave approximately one fifth un-tucked to create an asymmetric shape.

Scarf: Urban Outfitters
Top: Factorie
Boots: Rubi
Necklace: Lovisa
Bodycon skirt (underneath): New Look

Scarf As A PussyBow

You will need: A long, thin, silk scarf or hair scarf.

A pussybow is an amazingly simple way to add some ooomph to an outfit. Just tie around a collared shirt for a look that can take you from office to dance floor.

Scarf: Lovisa
Shirt: Jay Jays
Shorts: Topshop
Sunglasses: Sports Girl
Hairband (as bracelet): Lovisa
Shoes: Rubi
