Despite how one-dimensional a scarf may seem, many of you may be surprised to learn that you can use the scarf in a variety of different ways. To help you see its many uses, we thought it would be useful to put together an article discussing different ways to utilize scarves. If you want to learn more about this, read on as we list down the most unique ways to wear a scarf.
An Outer Layer
Convertible styles and belts help elevate scarves from an accessory to a full layer of their own. It can go from scarf to outer layer with ease, allowing the wearer to switch between a cozy button-up shirt or a vest. This is best done as a part of an entire outfit that works best for fall and winter. We recommend trying it with skinny jeans and tall boots for a cozy look.
It gets chilly when the weather changes and you need to bundle up, but staying warm also means staying protected from gusts of wind. One of our favorite ways to keep warm during the cold months is with a scarf that can also act as a hood. This is especially useful when it’s too windy to wear a hat, and helps keep your head, ears, and neck warm. You don’t even need to own an infinity scarf, as just about any scarf can be converted into a hood if you know what you’re doing. All you have to do is to fold one scarf over itself and wear it as a cowl.
A Travel Blanket or a Pillow
Scarves might seem like a purely decorative accessory, but they have practical applications, too. If you want to save space in your luggage, wear it on the airplane and use it as either a blanket or a pillow. If you want to have a comfier pillow, then you can even stuff your scarf into a packing cube and put it in your carry-on bag. Circle scarves, in particular, make excellent instant pillows.
An Evening Wrap
These wrap scarves will keep you warm during the day while you sight-see and then keep your neck cozy in the evening when you go from sightseeing to cocktails. Wearing them around your neck during the day, you will be able to stay warm enough for your sight-seeing activities.
A Sturdy Cape
For extra warmth around your arms and a toasty feel on a cold day, a cape scarf is a fabulous choice. It has arm holes built right in, so it will stay in place as you get through your day. When you’ve had enough of it around your arms, simply turn it back into a classic scarf. This is great as it makes a simple scarf incredibly flexible.
A Hair Accessory
Hair accessories are one way to do so with ease. You can tie these into your ponytail or wear them as retro headbands for a look that is unique and very you. You can also use them as travel accessories, tying them around the handles of your bags for a touch of personality that is uniquely yours.
