WARDROBE REMIX: One Scarf Three WaysBy Joëlle Anello
Developing a personal style has become a passion of mine, and I am constantly drawing inspiration from popular culture, the fashion industry and the world around us. Unfortunately, unlike some of my style icons, I’m working on a real-world budget so developing a re-mixable wardrobe is essential to having fashion variety without breaking the bank. Re-imagining different ways to use the same article of clothing is a great way to ensure that you’re really getting mileage out of each and every item in your closet. For this post I’ll be relying on two of my key clothing pieces, a maxi dress and a linen scarf, to achieve three different looks for the summertime.
Start with your linen scarf folded in half length wise. Place the scarf flat against your back, with the two corners in either hand, and bring both of your arms to your front. Trade your scarf corners from one hand to the other, and twist the scarf once clockwise, where it meets between your chest. Now bring both ends towards your back again, and tie securely into place (we don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions!) Adjust the front part of your top by pulling each side wide so that it covers your entire chest. When you’re comfortable with the results (and decent), lower the top of your maxi dress slightly so that it just touches the bottom of your new crop top. Your once maxi dress and scarf have now been remixed into a high-waisted maxi skirt and crop top. Summer, here you come!
