Did you know there is one item in your wardrobe you can wear around your neck, as a shirt, as a purse, and around your head? That's right ... that scarf in the back of your closet is the piece that could take you from day to night in a flash. Jill Martin of Us Weekly magazine reveals how to tie the fabric into a halter top, belt, purse or headband.
A halter top
1. Lay the scarf down with the dull side facing up (36" inch square — if you want more coverage, go bigger).
2. Take the middle of the scarf and tie a small knot (right in the middle).
3. Tie two of the corners around your neck and the other two corners around your waist. Pair this with a flowy skirt or pair of pants and you are set!
1. Lay the scarf out flat.
2. Fold the scarf into a triangle and roll it, starting at one corner, until you have one long, tubelike scarf.
3. Put it through the loops of jeans or slacks and tie a knot in the front.
1. Take any square scarf (36" by 36" is standard — go bigger if you want to go bigger). Lay it with the dull side facing up.
2. Take two opposite corners and tie them into a square knot.
3. Then take the last two opposite corners of the scarf and tie those into a square knot. This will become the handle for the bag. Voila! You have a purse!
1. Start with a square scarf. Fold it in half to form a triangle and then fold inward until you get the desired width. Smooth the long portion across your forehead and tie the ends in knot under your hair.
