Follow along with this quick tutorial to learn how to make this easy summer top.

All you need is a scarf and a bandeau to create this one of a kind, backless scarf top.

Tools and materials:

  • Bandeau top
  • Scarf
Placing bandeau with scarf

1. Place your bandeau and scarf

Start by draping the scarf evenly on your neck and placing the bandeau in front of your chest.

To clarify, you shouldn’t wear the bandeau, just hold it in front of your chest so that your back remains bare.

2. Thread the scarf

Next, thread either side of the scarf through each side of the bandeau.

Just like this.

3. Tie the ends in the back

Pull the ends of the scarf so they are taut.
