Today's Everyday Fashion: The Scarf Belt



Today's outfit started with a scarf. I recently picked up this lovely piece of silk for $3 at Banana Republic. I wanted to wear it with this blue Express shirt I've had for years, but the shirt already has a bow, so the scarf didn't look quite right tied at my neck. I played around with it before settling on wearing it like a belt. The photo on the left is another example of wearing a scarf this way. What's your opinion? Do you like wearing scarves as belts?

Occasion: Work
Scarf: Banana Republic, $3 (recent)
Blazer: Gap, $70
Shirt: Express
Skirt: Banana Republic, $40

  2. I love the scarf as belt. You can also use the scarf as a headband or on your pony tail too.

  3. scarves as belts are awesome- wear it all the time (well, not all the time, but have done it many times before)- i have a hard time doing silk scarves around my neck and not feeling like a flight attendant so the pretty silk scarves usually end up around my waist/hips. :)

  6. Have you ever considered wearing a belt for a scarf?! If you pull it tight enough, it looks great!
