The circle scarf is an answer to a prayer if you have ever wished you had one accent piece that you could literally accessorize your entire wardrobe with. Whether you are in the mood for a Mediterranean cover-up, a sexy little summer dress, a warm turtleneck, or a sassy over-the-shoulder throw, your new circle scarf is a made-to-order accessory that comes ready to please. Learn about creative ways to wear a circle scarf and try out the looks that appeal to you.
The cape is a fun look that you can wear with any width of circle scarf. Depending on the width, you can achieve this look two ways. With a thinner circle scarf, put your head through the center of the circle scarf, then twist it cross-wise and put your head through the second loop. Then rearrange the circle scarf so that the material hangs down your back behind you. With a wider circle scarf, you can take two of the ends and tie them in a knot around your neck and arrange the material to fall behind you like a real cape.
The Belted Dress
If you have a wider width circle scarf, then get inside the loop of the circle scarf and pull it up to above your bust line. Then pull it tight around your body and grab the looser end and pull it in and tuck it into your bustline. Then add a wide belt to complete your look, which also helps to hold the dress in place. The tighter you wrap the circle scarf, the better the dress will stay in place even for a very active evening.
The turtleneck is a look that you can achieve with any width and length of circle scarf. Depending on the length and width, you may want to wrap it twice or three times around your neck by inserting your head through successive loops of the scarf. You can finish by tying the loose ends together in the front or to the side for a longer circle scarf, or simply tucking the loose ends up under the turtleneck for a shorter circle scarf.
The Mediterranean Wrap
The Mediterranean wrap is a great way to keep your hair in place while you are riding in a convertible or out in windy nature. All you need to do is position one end of the circle scarf down over your head to just above your eyes. Then twist the remaining length of material for the circle scarf behind your neck and add a pin if you want to hold it in place. For an extra accent, add a cute broach or pin to the front of your wrap higher up on your forehead and positioned between your eyes.
The Shawl Shrug
One of the most popular ways to wear a circle scarf is in a shawl shrug. The shawl shrug can provide both warmth and a splash of accent color to any outfit. Just spread out your circle scarf material and bring each hand through one end of the shawl material. Then spread out the material around your shoulders.
