Oh hayyy dolly girls! Is everyone trying to stay nice and warm? If we are on the same page you’re probably looking to throw a scarf on with just about anything lately – am I right?! Okay, so since we don’t want to be boring (obv), let’s discuss how to wear a scarf differently than every other basic b*tch. – Let’s belt it!
I mean don’t get me wrong, wearing a scarf the basic way, wrapped around your neck as your basic circle style – is cute. But, read between the lines. Basic… basic… – come on ladies we are better than that!
Belting your scarf not only looks totally cool and chic but it also gives the image of a poncho! And I mean who doesn’t love a fab poncho? So with a few scarfs and a couple of belts you have multiple ponchos – talk about a win-win!
The key to pulling this off is using oversized scarves. You need the extra material to be able to wrap it over your shoulders with it still being long enough in the front. You can see what I mean with my outfit here.
However, you can also belt a regular size scarf if you’re not so into the poncho look. Either way – totally cute! Just drape it behind your neck like normal and belt it. This will also cinch the waist making it not so bulky and much more flattering. Having a slender figure (aka lack of curves), I’ll jump on the opportunity to cinch my waist any chance I get! It’s all about the illusion ladies, right? – Ha!
