A few weeks ago I posted a minimalistic outfit, where I used a scarf as a jacket/shawl.
I wrote: ”The scarf is one of the pieces I can´t go without. It´s convenient in a lot of ways, that I will show you later.” As promised I will show you what you can do with it!
It might sound crazy but this piece of rectangular fabric is one of the favorites in my wardrobe. I don’t leave my house without it. When I’m not wearing it as a scarf or shawl, I have it with me in my bag. Maybe it has something to do with my background. You may not see it, because I’m a natural blond, but my grandmother comes from Indonesia. My mother taught me how to wear a sarong when I was a child. From that point on I found several ways on my own to wear such a piece of fabric. Nowadays I use a more modern fabric in a modern way.
The scarf is perfect for unpredictable weather. When it gets colder it’s handy to hide in the shawl. When my shirt, dress, pants or skirt are ruined by, for example, food (I’m a messy eater) or something else, this scarf is useful to replace the dirty or ruined clothes. When you go on vacation and your baggage is late (let’s hope not) you always have your scarf with you that you can wear in a lot of ways. It also is a perfect piece to take with you to a festival. When you are a bit creative you will be astonished by all the options this scarf offers. You don’t need much more to take with you as far as clothing. Just some simple basic things.
This scarf comes from Perfectly Basics and is made of micro modal. This fabric makes it drape perfectly around you. This scarf is out of stock, but I can recommend to buy something similar or a piece of quality fabric at a fabric store, to make your own scarf from.
Be careful with choosing the fabric. Make sure it has several requirements like; it’s stretchy, a bit heavy, so it can drape beautifully around you and very important the fabric has to be opaque. The size of this one is 200cm by 100cm. I’m 168cm and for me this is the perfect size.
Which one is your favorite?
