Summer Scarves: The Vest

This week we’ve got one of my favorite scarf styles: the vest. It’s a really fun way to transform your scarf. Pair it over a strapless top or tank in the summer, or layer it over a long sleeve top in the winter.

Turning a scarf into a vest is really simple. To start, you’ll need a rectangular scarf (different lengths will work, but somewhere around 80” will be your best bet). Fold the scarf in half (hamburger style 🙂 ), and tie the corners your are holding together. Make the smallest knot possible so you have more room for your arms. Now find the ends of the scarf, open it up, & slide it on.  It sounds a lot more complicated than it is, so just give it a try.

Depending on the width of your scarf, the length of the vest will vary. For a vest that hits around the hip, find a 25″–30” wide scarf. If you want a longer vest like mine, go with a scarf that’s 35″–40” wide.

The vest also works great as a swimsuit cover up, so try this style out and enjoy that last few beach/pool days of the summer. One more style to go in my summer scarves series!
