I’m going to show you a really cool trick to refashion your boring button-up tops into something new with only a scarf. Let’s get into it.

Tools and materials:

  • Scarf
  • Cufflinks
Folding the scarf

1. Fold the scarf

Fold your scarf into a triangle by meeting two of the opposite corners.


2. Tie the tip of the triangle 

Take the middle-most point and tie the two folded layers of the scarf together. Tighten it with just enough room to go around your neck.
