Layer this B.HEART PRINT SCARF in dark palm print underneath a blazer to tie together the shades in a colorblocked outfit. I paired this one with the Roksanda Ilincic wool and raffia jacket in black/blue and Mugler stretch leather pants in green.
But what about when you're walking down the street and find some awesome books you want to take home, but don't have a bag? Or when that plastic bag you're carrying breaks? Just knot each corner of your scarf and then tie the ends of the knots together to create a makeshift tote!

Tie the EMMA COOK RABBIT SCARF taught around your neck and tie the ends into a bow for an ascot look, Anna wears it with the Chloe sevigny for opening ceremony ruffle sleeve dress shirt in white.
Or better yet, knot the scarf at even intervals and tie the ends together for a new necklace.
A loose loop around your neck with this B.HEART PRINT SCARF in purple multi makes the PS1 iPad Case in neon coral, styled here as a clutch, less left of field.
The thought of carrying around a clutch, let alone an iPad case, gives me an anxiety attack—I'm almost certain I'll leave it somewhere. In response to such paranoia, twist the scarf tight and slide it through the flap of the clutch. Then, tie it to your desired length and you've got a functional purse!

A non-silk scarf (you don't want to get silk soaking wet) is a perfect beach cover up. Here, I tied the TSUMORI CHISATO DOT SCARF in turquoise around the waist to make a sarong. I paired it with the OPENING CEREMONY BALCONETTE BIKINI in yellow.
You can also wrap the scarf around you, toga-style.
But, better yet, throw the scarf over your shoulders and knot the ends underneath your arms to create armholes, and you've got a cape!
This Swash jangala scarf in teal is an easy way to add some color to your "it's almost spring!" outfit. I paired it with the cacharel lace flat front shorts in cream, and the opening ceremony cable pullover in peach.
But you know when that kind of breezy day unexpectedly turns super warm and beautiful? Not to worry, this scarf can easily turn into a makeshift bikini top. Fold opposing points of the scarf in towards the center until you have a long neat strip. Then, tie the scarf around your body and knot in the center.
Another simple way to wrap your scarf, shown with the Swash sewing seeds scarf in multi.
This can also turn into a fancy way to hide your bad hair day! Tie your hair at the nape of your neck, then fold the scarf over your head like a bandana and braid the two ends into your ponytail.
You know that montage in Clueless where Tai awkwardly and indecisively tries to style her sheer shirt with her overalls? ("Do I tie it around my waist, Cher?") I think that's how most people feel when they wear a silk scarf. What are you supposed to do with it? Tie it around your neck? Let it dangle under your jacket? Add the grandma stigma to the equation and it's understandable if you keep your distance. But I'm here to tell you that this doesn't have to be the case; scarves are more multi-purpose than you'd expect. Check out some of my favorite classic and not-so-classic ways to wear 'em!
