Ways to Wear Scarves

Accessorizing with a scarf? Chic. Finding five new ways to wear it? Even chicer. Here’s how.

As as bracelet. Give your metallic arm candy a rest. Twist the scarf around your wrist for an instant outfit update.

As a shoe accessory. To add some interest to basic boots, tie it around the ankle shaft.
